Are you the one?
Luleå University of Technology is in strong growth with world-leading competence in several research areas. We shape the future through innovative education and ground-breaking research results, and based on the Arctic region, we create global social benefit. Our scientific and artistic research and education are conducted in close collaboration with international, national and regional companies, public actors and leading universities. Luleå University of Technology has a total turnover of SEK 1.9 billion per year. We currently have 1,840 employees and 17,670 students. In the coming years, multi-billion sums will be invested in Norrbotten and Västerbotten in large projects aimed at a more sustainable society nationally as well as globally. Luleå University of Technology is involved in several of these highly topical research projects and the social transformation that follows. We have a wide range of training to match the skills that are in demand. We hope you will help us build the sustainable companies and communities of the future. At the Department of Systems and Space Technology, the university has brought together research and education in electrical engineering, space technology, computer and systems science. We are now looking for a PhD student in electronics systems with a focus on electromagnetic compatibility in an electrified airport environment, who can contribute to our growing business in electrical engineering at the EISLAB department. We conduct research in the areas of electronic systems, machine learning and cyber-physical systems. The electronics systems group focuses on electrodynamic calculations and simulations, electronics design and measurement technology. The research and teaching carried out is supported by high-quality infrastructure with state-of-the-art laboratories for electromagnetic compatibility, microelectronics and photoacoustics.  Subject description  Electronics systems include electronics design, measurement technology and electromagnetic compatibility for control, monitoring and instrumentation of technical processes and systems, with close and broad connections to applications and applied research.  Project description  The environmental effects of flight on climate change have become a major driving force for the development of electric aircraft, where the focus is currently on safety, battery technology and driveline development. Today's certified electric airplanes carry a maximum of two passengers for ten miles, but development is progressing quickly. The Swedish company Heart Aerospace is now developing a hybrid aircraft for 30 passengers to be put into service by 2028, and at Skellefteå airport pilot training is being conducted with the electric aircraft Pipistrel Velis Electro. Associated charging infrastructure is expanded with charging stations, solar parks and energy storage. At Luleå University of Technology, our group is involved in driving the area forward via projects and collaborations with authorities and local actors.  The ongoing development has actualized the issue of electromagnetic interference (EMI) and compatibility (EMC) in the airport environment. Electric aircraft and chargers, like many other electronic systems, are based on switching power electronics. In addition to intended fundamental tones, this generates a considerable amount of harmonics which can leave the system as radiated disturbances. Effects from these disturbances in the future introduction of electric aircraft and chargers are still largely unmanaged and largely unknown. The project will contribute to the introduction of electric aircraft by studying electromagnetic interference from electric aircraft and its connection to airport systems. Especially the airport's system for communication, navigation and surveillance (CNS) in the frequency range 100 – 400 MHz is of interest here.  We are now looking for PhD students who, together with the support of our team of researchers, want to develop into independent researchers in this field. As a doctoral student, you will have a close collaboration with researchers and staff at the university as well as with experts in measurement and modeling of electromagnetic emission in Sweden and internationally.  Job duties  A doctoral position involves both theoretical and practical work. As a doctoral student, you are trained in scientific work in the form of publishing scientific articles in journals and at national and international conferences. You also study compulsory and voluntary doctoral courses. In addition, you can have the opportunity to try out the teaching role. As a researcher, you work as a neutral party in many contexts, which provides a fantastic opportunity to learn how to run research and development projects.  Qualifications  We are looking for committed people who have:  - A solid educational background, civil engineering or master's degree or equivalent, in electrical engineering, physics or related fields.  - Good practical knowledge of measurement technology and laboratory work.  - Basic knowledge of electromagnetic field theory and signal processing.  - Effective communication skills to convey complex ideas with clarity and impact.  For further information on specific doctoral education, see study plans for postgraduate education within the Faculty of Technology.  The subject area of ​​electrical engineering has a high representation of men, therefore we particularly encourage female applicants.  Information  Employment as a doctoral student is time-limited to 4 years, teaching and other department duties can add up to 20% of full time. Place of employment is Luleå. Intended access according to agreement.  For more information please contact Jonny Johansson, professor, 0920-491703  Union representative:  SACO-S Kjell Johansson, 0920-49 1529  OFR-S Lars Frisk, 0920-49 1792  Application  We prefer that you apply for the position via the application button below, where you attach a personal letter as well as a CV/curriculum vitae and copies of verified diplomas. Please mark your application with the reference number below. Both the application and degree certificate must be written in Swedish or English.  Application deadline: 2024-08-30  Reference number: 2283-2024
