1. PhD POSITION IN BIOELECTROMAGNETICS (IETR, Rennes, France). The Institute of Electronics and Telecommunications of Rennes, University of Rennes 1, France (www.ietr.org) is looking for candidates for a PhD position in bioelectromagnetics entitled: STUDY OF ANTENNAS ON COMMUNICATING TEXTILES AND INTERACTION WITH THE HUMAN BODY. This three-year position is expected to start in fall 2009.

DETAILS: Key words: Wireless communications, numerical modeling and dosimetry, communicating textiles, bioelectromagnetics. Context: Progress in fabrication of clothes and textiles makes them not only more comfortable and lighter, but also communicating and smart. The development of the near-future body-centric wireless networks requires the implementation of multiple antennas whose radiation characteristics strongly depend on the coupling with the human body. In this context, it is crucial not only to design new antennas corresponding to the needs of emerging wireless communications, but also to study interactions between these radiating structures with the human body in order to minimize potential impact on the biological tissues and ensure biocompatibility of these systems. Position description: The main purposes of this PhD research project will consist in studying, developing, and characterizing the performance of next-generation antennas printed on textiles (small antennas, metameterial-based antennas, etc.). The main research directions are the following: • Development of antennas on textiles; • Electromagnetic dosimetry for the different parts of the human body exposed to on-body antennas (microwave propagation in biological tissues, computation of the electromagnetic field and SAR distribution, attenuation and absorption of the waves in the biological media); • Optimization of the antenna performance (positioning of the antenna on the body, minimization of the interaction "antenna / body", evaluation of the mutual coupling among antennas); • Study of the conformity of the antennas with international standards and recommendations. These studies will be carried out in the framework of the national METAVEST project. Duration: 3 years, starting from October 2009 Candidate: Required education level: MS or equivalent degree. Main research field: electromagnetics. Languages: French and / or English. Fellowship: 1300 € net / month Contact: Ronan SAULEAU, Maxim ZHADOBOV Institute of Electronics and Telecommunications of Rennes (IETR, www.ietr.org) University of Rennes 1, Rennes, France Emails: Ronan.Sauleau@univ-rennes1.fr, Phone: (+33)2 23 23 56 76 Maxim.Zhadobov@univ-rennes1.fr, Phone: (+33)2 23 23 67 06

2. PH.D. POSITION IN BIOELECTROMAGNETICS: The Institute of Electronics and Telecommunications of Rennes, University of Rennes 1, France (www.ietr.org) is looking for candidates for a PhD position in the interdisciplinary field of bioelectromagnetics entitled: DOSIMETRY AND INSTRUMENTATION FOR THE ASSESSMENT OF BIOCOMPATIBILITY OF EMERGING WIRELESS COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS AT CELLULAR LEVEL. This three-year position is expected to start in fall 2009.

The objectives of this PhD project are twofold: i) development and implementation of specific exposure systems for the experimental bioelectromagnetic investigations at micro-waves and millimeter waves, and ii) application of advanced numerical tools for the dosimetric analysis of these exposure systems. The PhD student will work at the Institute of Electronics and Telecommunications of Rennes (IETR) in the research team consisting of two academic partners (IETR and Intercellular Protein Homeostasis Team (HIP)) who will combine their complementary expertises in electromagnetics, numerical modeling, and cellular biology. The research project will mainly consist in the following tasks:  Development and implementation of near-field exposure systems at micro- and millimeter waves.  Use of advanced numerical tools for multiphysics modeling (electromagnetics and thermodynamics).  Development of a high resolution dosimetry system at millimeter waves.  Carrying out of series of experiments (in vitro studies) using developed exposure and dosimetry systems. Candidate: Required education level: MS or equivalent degree. Main research field: electromagnetics. Languages: French and / or English. Duration and funding: Three years, starting from fall 2009. Around 1350 € net / month, funded by the French National Research Agency in the frame of the research project entitled "Bio-electromagnetic compatibility of emerging body-centric wireless networks: from dosimetry to health risks assessment".
