Job description

Sounds strange, but there are still several secrets that need to be unraveled in the topic of multi-propagation paths in real, complex electromagnetic environments and we think that reverberation chambers are one key to unlock them. Join us in pioneering research that emulates complex signal behaviors, using the full potential of reverberation chambers to simulate diverse real- world environments. With this position you will work for The NEPIT Doctoral Network project, a unique chance to delve into cutting-edge emulation techniques, shaping the future of EMC measurements, wireless communication, IoT, and beyond. Do not miss the opportunity to become part of a team dedicated to redefining how we test and innovate in the dynamic realm of mulit-propagation paths research using reverberation chambers.

Job Description

The NEPIT project will help you enter the realm of endless possibilities within reverberation chambers, a world where electromagnetic echoes and reflections spark innovation. Join our project to explore the diverse applications of reverberation chambers and be part of a journey where electromagnetic propagation in complex environments meets science, forging new paths in research and unlocking the full potential of reverberation chambers' myriad uses.

During the project you will develop and validate a richer set of probability density functions able to describe and model the statistical behavior of field propagation in semi-enclosed environments and solve the inverse problem of emulation of realistic environments in the lab, using pertinent techniques related to reverberation chambers. Doing this you will enrich the family of models for semi-reverberant environments with a bivariate statistical approach and with model- based variations of the principle of maximum entropy and you will apply models to real-life environments and emulate them in the laboratory.

Welcome to the innovation hub where knowledge transforms into action—Eindhoven University of Technology. Join a vibrant academic international diverse community fostering groundbreaking research and entrepreneurial spirit. Benefit from our world-class facilities, interdisciplinary collaborations, and a culture that thrives on turning ideas into real-world solutions. At TU/e, seize the opportunity to shape tomorrow's technologies, drive sustainable innovations, and be part of a global network of pioneers shaping the future.
