Winter 2022
  • Open position #1: PhD student for research in 3D-printed antennas and related electromagnetic structures starting September 2022. Previous experience in antenna design and measurement is required. Interested candidates can send their CV, a scan of their undergraduate and graduate transcripts and a copy of their masters thesis (or publications) to Prof. Saavedra. Please note that due to the high volume of emails, I may not be able to respond to every message but I do read them all and I will contact you if I need more information from you.

  • Open position #2: MASc or MEng student for research in broadband gallium nitride power amplifier design starting May 2022 or September 2022. Undergraduate coursework in microwave engineering, including measurement techniques, is required. Interested candidates can send their CV, a scan of their undergraduate transcript and a copy of one (1) relevant course design project report in analog/RF/microwave circuits to Prof. Saavedra. Please note that due to the high volume of emails, I may not be able to respond to every message but I do read them all and I will contact you if I need more information from you..
