Associate Antenna Designer
Graduate Position Permanent Harwell, UK
Uploaded 5 Jun 2018
Helix Technologies Ltd is seeking to recruit an Associate Antenna Designer to work at its offices located on the Harwell Science Campus, Oxfordshire, UK, to design antennas using dielectric-loaded, multi-filar helix antenna technology.
Our compact, ceramic-based, helix antennas out-perform incumbent antenna technologies and are particularly suited to applications where there is a need for precise positioning, robust telecommunications links and downward pressure on device size, weight and power, for example Internet of Things (IoT), autonomous vehicles (GNSS and DSRC V2X), drone delivery platforms, personal body-worn devices and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications
The Company is currently developing GNSS and V2X antenna products for the driverless car market. However, dielectric-loaded, multi-filar helix antenna technology lends itself to many other demanding telecommunications and GNSS-enabled applications, such as M2M, IoT and drone-delivery platforms, and we anticipate substantial interest from these market sectors in the future.
The work will primarily involve using the CST Studio Suite(TM) electro-magnetic simulation programme to design dielectric-loaded, helix antennas for telecommunications and GNSS applications.
The work will be carried out under the supervision of Helix Technologies’ Technical Director - Dr. Oliver Leisten.
Salary indicator is £30,000 - £34,000 pa and includes an attractive employee share option scheme. The Company will assist with obtaining a UK Visa where necessary.
In the first instance please send your resume to John Yates, Managing Director, Helix Technologies Ltd. [email protected]
The ideal candidate will have experience of researching electro-magnetic or antenna problems, most likely at post-graduate level, and have experience in one or more of the following areas:-
- Research experience of solving electro-magnetic science/engineering problems
- Experience of electro-magnetic simulation – preferably with the CST Microwave Studio Suite(TM) tool-set
- Experience of antenna design using dielectric materials and antenna array design would be advantageous
- Experience of using SolidWorks to create engineering drawings
- Good knowledge of antenna theory
- Willingness to locate to the Harwell Science Campus
