Postdoctoral Researcher – Programmer Application deadline: 5/20/21 Professor David Smith’s laboratory currently seeks a programmer for a satellite antenna research project. An advanced degree in electrical (or other) engineering, physics, or math is required. Primary responsibilities will include developing Python-based toolboxes to facilitate antenna development. The developed software will be used to simulate and control antennas and to interface with hardware to measure antennas. A background in antenna design, radar, computational imaging or related topics is desirable. The project aims to develop low-cost microwave antennas for low earth orbit radar imaging. This aim of this antenna platform is to support a multi-satellite constellation that will be able to conduct rapid revisit synthetic aperture radar (SAR). The first phase of the program will last until early 2022, with a second phase planned to follow. Please contact Dr. David R. Smith (drsmith@duke.edu) if interested.
