Applications are invited for a PhD studentship in the Terahertz Space Optics group of NUI Maynooth to work on the development of efficient antennas for the next generation of Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) Experiments and far IR astronomical receivers, funded through a European Space Agency programme.
The Terahertz Space Optics group at NUI Maynooth (Experimental Physics Department) undertakes research in the area of millimetre-wave and terahertz optics for astronomical instrumentation. The group is involved in both space and ground-based projects with research focussed on optical design and electromagnetic analysis techniques for CMB and far IR science missions.
Applicants should normally hold, or expect to obtain, a good undergraduate degree in Physics, and have a high level of proficiency in programming and a good knowledge of optics and electromagnetism.
