University of Surrey - PhD Studentship in Antennas Design

PhD Studentship
Design and measurement methodologies of millimetre-wave smart antennas
University of Surrey

Applications are invited for a funded three-year PhD studentship
starting on 1 January 2013 to investigate the novel design and
measurement methodologies of millimetre-wave smart antennas.
Millimetre-wave smart antennas using, for example printed
reflectarray, are the key technology for satellite communications,
wireless local area networks and radars. At millimetre-wave bands they
offer multi-gigabit speeds to complement existing Wi-Fi capabilities
and enable new cutting-edge wireless applications. Main objectives of
this project include novel designs, implementations and measurement
techniques of millimetre-wave smart antennas. It will involve antenna
design, EM modelling and simulation, RF/millimetre-wave circuit
design, DSP algorithms, antenna measurement methodologies, FGPA
implementations, etc.

Candidates should hold a 1st class or 2.1 honours degree in
Engineering, Physics, or a related field. Overseas students with
equivalent degrees will also be considered. The candidate will
preferably have a Master degree, and research backgrounds in one or
more of the following areas: antenna design, RF circuit design,
antenna measurement, and electromagnetics.

The award will be for a period of 3 years and include Home/Overseas
tuition fees plus a stipend (approx £13,590 p.a). Applications are
welcome from both the UK and internationally.

The student will be jointly supervised by Dr. Tian Hong Loh at The
National Physical Laboratory (NPL), and Dr. Steven Gao at University
of Surrey, UK. NPL is the UK's National Measurement Institute and is a
world-leading centre of excellence in developing and applying the most
accurate measurement standards, science and technology. The novel
measurement techniques will be explored in the small and smart antenna
test range at NPL, which allows non-invasive antenna measurements. Dr.
Gao's Research Group at Surrey has extensive experience in the designs
of satellite communication antennas, smart antennas, phased arrays and
RF/millimeter-wave wireless systems.

Informal enquiries should be directed to Dr. Steven Gao, email:


Applications should be sent to Dr. Steven Gao by post to Dr. Steven
Gao, Head of Antennas/RF/MM-Wave Group, Surrey Space Centre,
University of Surrey, Guildford, GU2 7XH, UK. Completed applications
should include a CV, a statement of research interests, the completed
application form, quoting the above studentship together with copies
of transcripts and certificate of qualifications. The Application Form
can be downloaded from:


Closing date: 21st October 2012

The way to AMINEF in Gedung Balai Pustaka

American Indonesian Exchange Foundation
Balai Pustaka Building, 6th. Floor
Jl. Gunung Sahari Raya No. 4
Jakarta 10720, Indonesia

1. The buses which goes to Senen Bus Station all of them pass through Gedung Balai Pustaka. Especially which route is through Pasar Baru .

2. Bus Transjakarta, from Blok M you have to change the bus 2-3 times.
Way 1 : from Blok M change the bus in Dukuh Atas bus stop to the bus towards Pulogadung, then take a bus in Pramuka bus stop towards Ancol, this bus pass through Gedung Balai Pustaka. The closest bus stop (Budi Utomo) is about 800 meters from Gedung Balai .
Way 2 : From Blok M take the bus in the Harmoni Bus Stop, the bus towards Pulogadung, get down in Senen Bus Stop and walk about 800 meters, or from this bus stop take the bus towards Ancol and get down as mentioned in way 1. About the distance, this two bus stops is about the same. (It is better if you take ojek or bajaj from this bus stop to Gedung Balai Pustaka)

3. If you take taxi with old tariff (TL=Tarif Lama) from blok M with no traffic jam is about Rp. 30.000,00.

4. From Blok M use bus Patas AC 76. Gedung Balai Pustaka is in the right side, after you pass through Depag, and say to conductor "Balai Pustaka"

5. Use a busway from Blok M towards Kota, get down in Sawah Besar bus stop. From here take a Mikrolet M12 towards Senen. After cross road Wahidin and before senen get down and cross the street.
