Postdoc position on compact device modeling in Spain

As Professor in the Universitat Rovira i Virgili (Tarragona, Spain), I am going to apply for a postdoctoral position (funded by the Spanish Ministry under the Programa Juan de la Cierva) related to the European projects we participate in: the SQWIRE project (a project about technology, characterization and modeling of Si nanowires) and the Compact Modeling Network, COMON (of which I am the coordinator).

The candidate should be a person who holds a PhD as awarded within the three years prior to the date when the period for presentation of application forms closes. The Ph D must have been obtained later than January 1 2007. If the candidate does not hold a PhD yet, the deadline to be awarded a PhD is the date of publication of the Awarding Resolution in the Ministry of Education and Science web site.

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. In any case, it will be related to the European projects in which we participate. Our contribution in these projects is the physics and modeling (in particular compact modeling) of the novel devices addressed by these European projects: nanowire FETs, multi-gate MOSFETs (FinFETs, DG MOSFETs,...), High Voltage MOSFETs and advanced HEMTs.

The postdoc position, which will be a contract, will have a duration of up to 3 years. The net salary will be around 1900 Euro/months.

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

About Tarragona:

Tarragona is located on the Mediterranean, in the heart of the Costa Daurada, in the south of Catalonia, about 100 Km south from Barcelona. Tarragona is well connected to Barcelona by highway, and frequent trains and buses. It has also a direct bus connection with Barcelona Airport. Besides, it has high-speed rail connection with Madrid and Barcelona.

Tarraco (the Roman name for Tarragona) was one of the most important cities in the Roman Empire. F On 30 November 2000, the UNESCO committee officially declared the Roman archaeological complex of Tàrraco a World Heritage Site. This recognition is intended to help ensure the conservation of the monuments, as well as to introduce them to the broader international public. Among the citizens of Tarragona, it has moreover fomented knowledge of, pride in and respect for the city.

Speaking about Tarraco’s climate, the famous Roman poet Virgil wrote: “The climate blends and confuses the seasons singularly, so that all the year seems an eternal spring.” Thanks to its temperate climate, with an average yearly temperature of 23ºC, its clean beaches with fine and gloden sand, and its singular artistic and architectural heritage, Tarragona is one of the most important tourism hubs in Europe. The city has a population of 120,202 inhabitants, and the native tongue is Catalan, but everybody speaks also Spanish, which is also official in Catalonia. Many people can also speak English (especially the young people) or French.
