Postdoctoral Marie Curie Fellowships on Compact Modeling

The European (7th Framework Programme) Call for Postdoctoral Individual Marie Curie Fellowships is open until August 18 2009.

I am looking for one or two candidates to work in my research group at the Universitat Rovira i Virgili (Tarragona, Spain) in the field of compact modeling of advanced semiconductor devices. Therefore, I would like to receive CVs from potential applicants. Once I have selected the candidates, we will make the application.

The candidates must have a Ph D in Electrical Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Physics or Telecommunication Engineering.


There are two open Calls: the one for Intra European Fellowships (FP7-PEOPLE-2009-IEF) and the one for International Incoming Fellowships (FP7-PEOPLE-2009-IIF). Therefore, candidates from European countries can apply for an Intra European Fellowship and candidates from outside Europe can apply for an International Incoming Fellowship.

These felowships can be for one or two years. Salaries are extremely good and the prestige of having this type of fellowship is very high. For this reason, there is a tough competition to get these fellowships.

I am looking for candidates for these Marie Curie Grants, both from Europe and outside Europe. Candidates must have a good CV (preferably with more than 4 publications in international journals, in order to have chances). In order to fit the Marie Curie requirements, their age should be below 35.

If successful, the postdoctoral researchers will work on the characterization of compact modeling of any of the advanced semiconductor devices targeted by our research European projects: nanoscale MOSFETs, SOI and Multi-Gate MOSFETs, strained-Si/SiGe MOSFETs, Schottky-Barrier MOSFETs, nanowire FETs, III-V HEMTs and organic TFTs.

The specific device/s in which the postdoctoral researcher will work will depend on his/her preference and background.

Candidates must send me by e-mail (to benjamin.iniguez@gmail.com) a CV or resume by AUGUST 6. Successful applicants will be informed by August 7, and then we will start to make the application. The successful candidates will be informed on the steps to do.

Tarragona is a small city (110000 inhabitants) on the Mediterranean coast, about 100 Km south from Barcelona, and very well connected to Barcelona and the main Spanish cities by rail and highway. Tarragona is a very old city, very important during the Roman Empire, and with a lot of historical landmarks.

The quality of life in Tarragona is excellent. Mediterranean and mild climate the whole year. Wonderful beaches around the city (even at the city). Mountains close to the city (even the Pyrenees are not far). Besides, the city is very quiet, but with an intense nightlife.

My research group in the Department of Electronic Engineering, Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV) is one of the strongest groups in compact modeling in Europe. We are leading one European project on compact modeling (in which a total of 15 European universities and companies participate). We also participate on two other European projects (one about nanoscale MOSFETs and another one about organic Thin Film Transistors).

I am looking forward to receiving excellent applications!
