We’re looking for people driven by excellence, excited about innovation, and looking to make a difference. If this sounds like you, you’ve come to the right place!
This is a fully funded position for 3 years (extendable to an additional 4th year) within Cosmic Communication Construction project that is to start on 01/01/2024. is an a Luxembourg National Research Found project that intends to build the future of the SnT and Luxembourg's antennas and propagation industry by researching, designing, simulating, prototyping, and measuring metamaterial antennas and RF components applied to the satellite antenna segment using AM&M techniques. For this, project will be composed of two key pillars: The first comprises researching different metamaterial antennas and RF components like gap-waveguide, metasurfaces, metalenses, and metamaterial phase arrays, to reduce the complexity in the satellite antenna segment in the K-band compared to conventional designs. The complexity reduction comprises compacting the number of antenna and RF sections and connectors. The second involves researching the most suitable AM&M techniques to prototype metamaterial antennas and RF components, to highly reduce the weight of the antenna satellite segment, maintaining the same performance as conventional scenarios. The AM techniques may include Stereolithography (SLA), Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), Selective Laser Melting (SLM), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), and for the metallization, Physical Vapor Deposition (PDV), Chemical Vapor Deposition CDV, Water Transfer Printing (WTP), Spray Painting (SP), electroplating, and electroless plating. The challenges for the prototype requirements comprise integrating all the metamaterial antenna sections, ideally in a single element, which can be successfully manufactured using additive manufacturing with the required resolution to generate cavities, pins, holes, and grooves. Furthermore, depending on the power and frequency requirements, the correct metal thickness proposes another challenge to overcome. Finally, this project will also aim to determine a better AM&M process to prototype satellite antenna segments successfully.
The successful candidate will work under the academic supervision of Prof. Symeon Chatzinotas, and Dr. Juan-Andrés Vásquez-Peralvo and join a strong and motivated research team.
The position holder will be required to perform the following tasks:
- Contribute to the FNR project,

Our aim is that the Fellowship is a route to a long and rewarding career using law as a tool for social justice, with Fellows going on to become leaders in their field and important advocates for access to justice and the rule of law.
The Fellowship is made up of three parts:
- Training: a two year fully funded training period in any UK nation, and a free place on the Professional Skills Course at BPP campuses or equivalent compulsory training in Scotland or Northern Ireland.
- Project: Fellows develop a project in collaboration with their Host organisation. Projects help advance access to justice and can potentially provide a future income stream for the Host organisation.
- Wider support, development & networking: Fellows attend regular sessions on project development, professional development and wider skills training (e.g. marketing and fundraising), well-being support as well as access to useful networks. Fellows also build important relationships with their cohort which gives them essential peer support throughout their training. And they remain part of our JFF alumni network post-qualification as well. Similarly, our Hosts become part of a national network of organisations committed to supporting the next generation of social welfare lawyers.
Application and recruitment process
Each year we recruit and appoint Host organisations and then publish details of these organisations and job descriptions on the New Fellowship Opportunities page before the opening of our next Fellow recruitment round. Our Fellow recruitment round normally opens in Autumn and successful Fellows are recruited to commence work in their Host organisation the following April.
Fellows will be employed by their Host organisation who will be responsible for the recruitment, supervision and support of fellows. The wider support, training and opportunities component of the scheme are organised by The Legal Education Foundation and its partners.
Background to the fellowship
The Legal Education Foundation focuses on the essential role of legal education in helping people and organisations to understand and use the law as a tool for change. Too often people across the UK are unable to get support and expertise that may be needed for them to access justice. The Foundation recognised that in order to ensure the law is there for everyone who needs it, communities must have talented and committed social welfare lawyers, and so the Justice First Fellowship was formed in 2014. The first nine Fellows started their training contracts in early 2015.
To date the fellowship has supported eight cohorts to qualify. The vast majority of these alumni continue to use their training and networks for social justice, many in the same host organisations where they first became Fellows.
The scheme has been supported by a range of partners including BPP, Unbound Philanthropy, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, BBC Children in Need, City Bridge Trust, AB Charitable Trust, Royal Bank of Scotland, and commercial law firms.
Why social welfare law is important
Social welfare law is a broad term covering areas such as debt, housing, employment, welfare benefits, community care, education, immigration and asylum. It is often referred to as ‘the law of everyday life’. Leaving legal problems unresolved contributes to a range of adverse consequences, such as poor mental health, and prevents progress in many areas of life.
Changes to legal aid and pressure on local authority budgets mean that vulnerable people are increasingly unable to access legal help for these issues. Legal advice helps people to take more control over their lives and secure fair treatment and protection.
Training opportunities for aspiring social welfare lawyers are scarce, prompting concerns about how the next generation of specialists will emerge as experienced lawyers retire. The Justice First Fellowship helps to address this by enabling lawyers to complete their training and go on to a career in which they use the law to bring about positive change in people’s lives.

Application Deadline: January 5, 2023
The Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies at York University invites highly qualified applicants for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair at the rank of an Assistant or Associate Professor position in Indigenous Data Sovereignty, in any of: the Department of Communications & Media Studies; Department of Social Science; Department of Politics; or the School of Public Policy & Administration. The successful candidate will be appointed to a unit that best suits their qualifications and experience. This appointment is contingent upon a successful nomination to the Canada Research Chairs program (http://www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca/) at the Tier 2 level. This is a tenure-track appointment to the Professorial Stream to commence July 1, 2024, or as soon as possible thereafter.
We are seeking a researcher of exceptional promise who is developing a vibrant program of research (someone recognized as becoming capable of leading in their field, nationally and internationally). As a Canada Research Chair (CRC), they would conduct an original, innovative research program of the highest quality on the issue of Indigenous data sovereignty, with a central focus on the implications for Indigenous communities and their interests of data extraction, collection, analysis and distribution technologies.
We welcome applications from candidates who recognize that contemporary Indigenous struggles for sovereignty are rooted in pre-colonial systems of governance, and whose program can contribute to strengthening Indigenous Peoples’ capacity to retain, protect and ensure appropriate use of data derived from their own knowledges, or extracted from their communities and territories. Candidates whose research programs have the potential to advance debates about definitions, ownership and control of data, developing appropriate governance frameworks, such as to ensure Free, Prior and Informed Consent, are especially welcome.
Preference will be given to applicants with a record of and/or commitment to capacity-building, including towards improving Indigenous Peoples’ technical expertise and resources, and capacity to negotiate rapidly evolving legal and policy contexts around data collection, access and benefit sharing frameworks at the national or global level. The candidate’s research program may focus on any of the areas in which Indigenous People are actively pursuing their rights for ownership and control of data, such as over health records and information, repositories of genetic information critical to the rapidly growing global bioeconomy, collections of Indigenous languages and oral histories, or databases containing Indigenous ecological knowledge used in land use planning, natural resources policy or other contexts.
The ideal candidate will develop and expand this research area and seek interdisciplinary collaborations within the Faculty and across the University, including through participation in active research centres such as the Centre for Indigenous Knowledges and Languages or the Centre for AI and Society, as well as local, national, and international communities and networks.
The Canada Research Chairs program seeks to attract outstanding researchers for careers at Canadian universities. Tier 2 Chairs are intended for exceptional emerging scholars (i.e., within 10 years of attaining their highest degree at the time of nomination, with consideration for career breaks) who have the acknowledged potential to lead their field of research. Appointment to a Tier 2 Chair is for five years, is renewable once, and comes with enhanced research support from the program. Applicants who are more than 10 years from their highest degree (and where career breaks exist, including maternity leave, extended sick leave, clinical training, etc.) may have their eligibility for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair assessed through the program’s Tier 2 justification process. Please see the CRC website for further eligibility details.
York acknowledges the potential impact of various life circumstances (e.g., illness, disability, caregiving, family commitments) on a candidate’s record of research and other achievements. Candidates are encouraged to describe such circumstances and their impact in their application. This information will be taken into careful consideration during the assessment process.
Recognizing the underrepresentation of Indigenous women and Indigenous gender minorities among CRCs, this position is open only to qualified researchers who indicate on the Affirmative Action self-identification form (see below) that they identify both as Indigenous Peoples of Canada (i.e., First Nations, Inuit, Métis) and as women or gender non-conforming (e.g., genderfluid, nonbinary, Two-Spirit, trans man, trans woman). The appointment is part of the University’s Affirmative Action program, which is based on the special program provisions of the Ontario Human Rights Code.
