Open Senior Researcher Position in Compact Device Modeling

A Senior Researcher position is offered in the Department of The Electronic, Electrical and Automatic Control Engineering in the Universitat Rovira i Virgili (Tarragona, Spain). This position has a duration of 5 years, with chances of obtaining a tenure as Associate Professor. It is funded by the prestigeous "Ramón y Cajal Programme" from the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation.

The candidate should have a Ph D in Electrical Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Telecommunication Engineering, Physics, or related disciplines. At least three years of postdoctoral experience are needed.

The candidate should have enough research experience in the field of semiconductor devices, and must have a very good knowledge of the physics of electron devices. The research project to be carried out can be adapted to the candidate's profile, and it can be proposed by the candidate. In any case, it will be related to the National and European projects from which my group receives funding. Our contribution in these projects is the physics and modeling (in particular compact modeling) of the novel devices addressed by those projects: thin-film SOI and multi-gate MOSFETs (FinFETs, DG MOSFETs, Gate All-Around MOSFETs), High Voltage MOSFETs, advanced HEMTs and Organic Thin Film Transistors (OTFTs).

The net salary will be around 2200 Euro/month. The position will include a research grant that the successful candidate can use to fund the beginning of his/her research.

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 (two about nanoscale MOSFETs and another one about organic Thin Film Transistors).

Interested applicants should send me their CV by e-mail.
