PhD position in bioelectromagnetics: Dosimetry and instrumentation for the assessment of biocompatibility of emerging wireless communication systems at cellular level

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.
Key words:
Emerging wireless communications, micro-waves, millimeter waves, bioelectromagnetics, exposure systems,
numerical and experimental dosimetry.
Nowadays, the number of exposure sources to electromagnetic fields increase exponentially with the
decrease of the average life time of wireless technologies. In this context, it is important to evaluate potential
biological effects and to assess health risks of the radiations induced by new wireless communication
systems to better understand mechanisms involved in bioelectromagnetic interactions. These
interdisciplinary studies require development of specific exposure systems using advanced numerical and
experimental tools.
Job description:
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
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
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”. Contacts:
