As an experienced Antenna Designer, you will design and develop the Antenna technical solutions for a very high quality, precision product range.  As part of a wider Electronic Engineering function, you will be defining future strategies and roadmaps for Antenna design solutions based on research and development activities in which you will also be actively involved.

You will gain exposure to complex and technologically advanced projects and products, which will provide you with stimulating and interesting experience; and – since you will be working with other highly talented and motivated engineers – you will find yourself working in a friendly and supportive environment that encourages career progression and allows you to experience a real feeling of success.

Benefits of working here:

  • State of the art technology & innovation
  • External learning and development encouraged.
  • Light and airy university type campus.

  • A proven track record of practical antenna production.
  • EM theory and expertise with EM simulation tools such as CST or HFSS.
  • Transmission line theory, matching circuits, active and passive RF circuit design.
  • Understanding of the designs and characteristics of various antenna types, with a proven track record of practical antenna production.
  • Hands-on experience of S-parameter measurements and antenna pattern measurements, with the ability to instruct external test houses where appropriate.
  • Whilst not essential, it would also beneficial if you could demonstrate some knowledge of practical RF design for UHF (and/or frequencies in excess of X-band) as well as Embedded and Miniaturised Antenna Design.
  • Experience of EM propagation in multipath environments and channel modes would also be advantageous.

You should be able and willing to gain (UK Eyes only) security clearance, potentially to DV level in the future.
