Description: The Department of Electrical Engineering invites applicants for a 3-year PhD position. The objective of the PhD project is to improve signal to noise ratio in Magnetic Resonance (MR) systems by implementing low-noise multi-element coil arrays. In order to reduce the noise of the array, the coils and associated frontends (matching, tuning, balancing circuits and amplifiers) will be cooled down to cryogenic temperatures.
Number of award(s): There is a PhD position available.
Duration of award(s): The period of employment is 3 years.
What does it cover? The salary and appointment terms are consistent with the current rules for PhD students.
