  • Demonstrated record of scientific achievement through publications and presentations.

  • Good communication skills.

  • Ability to conduct independent research.

  • Research experience in metamaterials/metasurfaces.

Desired Skills:

  • Experience in designing, fabricating, and testing active metamaterials, metasurfaces, and frequency selective surfaces.

  • Previous experience in full-wave electromagnetic simulations using commercial packages or open source codes.

  • Knowledge and experience in microwave/terahertz measurements and characterizations.

  • Strong knowledge and/or experience in electronically reconfigurable and steerable antennas array.

  • Familiarity with nonreciprocal metamaterial and topological photonic crystal is advantageous but not required.
