Part of the European Commission’s H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, the European Industrial Doctorate programme REVOLVE: Radio Technologies for Broadband Connectivity in a Rapidly Evolving Space Ecosystem: Innovating Agility, Throughput, Power, Size and Cost offers 7 PhD student positions in the area of antennas, electronics and signal processing, starting in the autumn of 2017.
Structured around a major European satellite integrator (Thales Alenia Space), REVOLVE brings together a further 4 leading European R&D laboratories from universities, industries, and technology institutes in the domain of radio frequency electronics and antennas for space applications that are located in France, Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom.
REVOLVE addresses the rapidly growing need for performance and cost in emerging satellite missions focusing on new technologies and design methods for antenna and radio front-ends. Selected candidates from this process will receive an offer of employment for 36 months with one of the consortium partners. All PhD students will be expected to enrol in a doctoral programme that is jointly supervised by supervisors from the academic and industry sector. During the course of the PhD training, each PhD student will be seconded to at least three of the partners and spend as
