Senior Research Engineer - MEMS circuits

Electro-mechanical computing has recently emerged as a very promising solution for ultra-low-power and high temperature circuit applications. The candidate will be responsible of the development of nano-electromechanical components for computation applications (logic and memory devices). This research will include device physics and modeling, design, fabrication in the IME cleanroom and characterization of electro-mechanical devices and circuits. Reliability and failure testing of memory arrays will be conducted.

PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering or Material Sciences. Hands-on experience on wafer level MEMS related works, including microfabrication process and work in a cleanroom environment. Familiar with electrical measurement techniques (device and memory arrays). Strong interest for MEMS multi-physics modeling. Excellent communication skills and teamwork with strong self-motivation. Interaction with industrial/academic partners expected.

Please contact Dr Vincent Pott for more information.

Position to remain open until a candidate is selected (apply online).

First comprehensive and systematic course on statistical variability

I am delighted to bring to your attention the first comprehensive and systematic course on statistical variability.
Dates: 11-12 January 2011 in Grenoble.
This first edition of the course is in collaboration with the SINANO Institute and the FP7 NoE NANOSIL. 
The course covers:

· Variability classification
· Sources of statistical variability
· Simulation of statistical variability
· Variability trends in conventional and novel MOSFETs
· Random telegraph noise statistics
· Statistical aspects of reliability
· Statistical compact model strategies
· Statistical circuit simulation

[mos-ak] C4P MOS-AK/GSA Workshop in San Francisco on December 8th, 2010

C4P MOS-AK/GSA Workshop in San Francisco on December 8th, 2010

We, together with the lead sponsors Accelicon Technologies and Cascade
Microtech, are delighted to declare that we have confirmed a first-
class location for the MOS-AK/GSA Workshop in San Francisco on
December 8th, 2010: the JW Marriott Union Square <http://>.
Attendees will need to secure their own lodging and transportation to
the event. The JW Marriott is centrally located near Union Square,
near IEDM, and public transportation is abundant.

The MOS-AK/GSA Workshop in San Francisco will be organized as in the
timeframe of the IEDM and CMC Meetings. The MOS-AK/GSA Workshop is
HiTech forum to discuss the frontiers of the electron devices modeling
with emphasis on simulation-aware models. Original papers presenting
new developments and advances in the compact/spice modeling and its
Verilog-A standardization are solicited. Suggested topics include (but
are not limited to):
* Compact Modeling (CM) of the electron devices
* Verilog-A language for CM standardization
* New CM techniques and extraction software
* CM of passive, active, sensors and actuators
* Emerging Devices, CMOS and SOI-based memory cells
* Microwave, RF device modeling, high voltage device modeling
* Nanoscale CMOS devices and circuits
* Technology R&D, DFY, DFT and IC Designs
* Foundry/Fabless Interface Strategies

On-line abstract submission will be open on Nov.5, 2010.
