Space is key asset for Europe. Europe’s citizens enjoy the benefits, from jobs and economic growth, to public services, efficient communications and security. To respond to global challenges, Europe must continue to have a prominent role in space at a time when other world powers are rapidly developing their space capabilities. Since satellite payload RF components and systems are essential for delivering mission objectives and supporting ground equipment and telecommunication systems, new technologies and techniques are required to respond to emerging satellite applications and technology challenges. To this end, TESLA Innovative Training Network (ITN), a consortium of 8 academic universities and 11 industrial partners, will train 15 PhD students, i.e. Early Stage Researcher (ESR) fellows, in a vibrant, multidisciplinary training-through-research environment uniquely equipped to develop the Advanced Technologies for future European Satellite Applications. The TESLA ESR fellows will pursue PhD in collaborating with senior staff in academic and industrial sectors to conduct top-notch research into new and enabling technologies for satellite flexible payloads, big constellation systems and Internet of Space, satellite high-speed communications and remote sensing, as well as large satellite platforms. The research topics include

Essential Criteria and Important eligibility rules for candidates:

Applicants should have a good undergraduate degree or a postgraduate Master's degree (or equivalent) in electronic or electrical engineering or a physical sciences subject as well as highly proficient English language skills. The ability to thing logically, create solutions and make informed decisions is essential as are excellent organizational skills and the ability to travel and work across Europe.

There are no restrictions on the nationality, but researchers must be early-stage researchers (ESR), i.e. at the time of recruitment, be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and have not been awarded a doctoral degree.

 

Researchers must comply with the mobility rule - Researchers may not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the reference date: the recruitment. Compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays are not taken into account.

 

Salary: The successful candidates will receive an attractive salary in accordance with the MSCA regulations for Early Stage Researchers http://ec.europa.eu/research/mariecurieactions. The PhD funding is for 36 months.

 

Application: Contact the Scientist-in-Charges at the host organizations for individual ESR positions as soon as possible for further details. (NB. The closing date for the application of individual posts may vary depending on the local admission procedure)
