General Summary of Position:

Applicants are sought for a full-time, benefitted postdoctoral researcher position in the fields of radar and remote sensing, and/or millimeter-wave digital communication technologies at the University of Massachusetts Lowell Submillimeter-Wave Technology Laboratory.

Candidates must be self-starters with graduate experience in their proposed field of investigation and come prepared with a research plan. Other research areas of applicant interest that are synergistic with STL’s overall mission will also be considered. This appointment is for one year with the potential for an additional year depending upon funding availability.

Demonstrated experience in areas such as mm-wave arrays, high frequency source/receiver design, and mm-wave/THz instrumentation will be considered.  The successful applicant will be expected to pursue external funding opportunities as well as publish results in scholarly journals and/or relevant recognized conferences.

Special Instructions to Applicants:

Only current UML Employees within the Grants & Contracts (MTA/Grace) bargaining unit will be considered during the first 10 business days of the posting. All other candidates will be considered after that period.

This position is contingent upon funding. The initial appointment will be for one year with a possibility of renewal based on productivity and performance and the availability of funding.
