Description

Professor Salvador González García, from the Department of Electromagnetism and Matter Physics at the University of Granada, welcomes postdoctoral candidates interested in applying for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships (MSCA-PF) in 2022 at this University. Please note that applicants must comply with the Mobility Rule (more information about the 2022 call: http://sl.ugr.es/0cmA).

Brief description of the institution:

The University of Granada (UGR), founded in 1531, is one of the largest and most important universities in Spain. With over 60.000 undergraduate and postgraduate students and 6.000 staff. UGR offers a total of 79 degrees, 188 master’s degrees and 28 doctoral programmes through its 127 departments and 22 centers. Consequently, the UGR offers one of the most extensive and diverse ranges of higher education programmes in Spain.

The UGR has been awarded with the "Human Resources Excellence in Research (HRS4R)", which reflects the UGR’s commitment to continuously improve its human resource policies in line with the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. UGR is also a leading institution in research, located in the top of Spanish universities by a variety of ranking criteria, such as national R&D projects, fellowships awarded, publications, or international funding.

UGR is one of the few Spanish Universities listed in the Shanghai Top 500 ranking - Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU). The edition of the ARWU 2021 places the UGR in 201-300th position in the world and as the 2nd highest ranked University in Spain (http://sl.ugr.es/0cmF), reaffirming its position as an institution at the forefront of national and international research. The UGR stands out in the specialties of Library & Information Science (position 36); Food Science & Technology (39) and Hospitality & Tourism Management (51-75), according to the latest edition by specialties of this prestigious ranking (http://sl.ugr.es/0bSp). A little below in the ranking, the UGR stands out in Mathematics (76-100) and Mining & Mineral Engineering (76-100).

Additionally, the UGR counts with 7 researchers are at the top of the Highly Cited Researchers (HCR) list (http://sl.ugr.es/0cmD), most of them related to the Computer Science scientific area. It is also well recognized for its web presence (http://sl.ugr.es/0a6i), being positioned at 54th place in the top 200 Universities in Europe.

Internationally, we bet decidedly by our participation in the calls of the Framework Programme of the European Union. For the duration of the last two Framework Programmes, the UGR has obtained a total of 67 projects, with total funding of 18.029 million euros, and for H2020, 119 projects with total funding around 29.233 million euros.

Brief description of the Centre/Research Group: 

This research group works on computer simulation of electromagnetic problems. The range of application in this line covers from the design of communication systems (waveguides, fiber optics, antennas, and radar) to electromagnetic compatibility problems, passing through the study of biological effects of the electromagnetic field and the medical and industrial applications of microwaves. Currently they are highly involved in the development of cutting-edge computational tools for electromagnetic simulation and its application to novel material analysis: smart-engineered, frequency selective surface, non-linear magnetic, etc.

Project description:

The work of the candidate would involve the numerical modeling of modern smart-engineered electric and magnetic material and the development of innovative numerical methods to deal with their macroscopic behaviour. For this, the Discontinuous Galerkin Time Domain method, as well has the Finite Difference Time Domain method already developed at the UGR, would be further improved to include the physics of these novel materials. The final goal is the application of these techniques to electromagnetic compatibility and RADAR properties of these materials in modern air vehicles.
