Candidate will integrate the Swiss CTI project CAPED for a period of 18 months. This research project aims at developing new technologies based on low power wireless communications, for communication between one intelligent pill implanted in the digestive system and an external control unit. The main industrial partner of this project is the Swiss company Motilis Medica SA. Dr. Catherine Dehollain (RF IC group leader) is the scientific coordinator of this project.We are looking for one post-doc/ experienced engineer specialized in low power microelectronic integrated circuits with strong practical experience in the following topics:
- Design of CMOS low power integrated circuits (analog, mixed-mode and RF blocks)
- Design of CMOS low power integrated circuits for energy scavenging (AC to DC converter, voltage regulator, bandgap reference circuit, power-on-reset circuit, etc)
- Design of CMOS power management circuits
- Design of CMOS low power transmitter and receiver (LNA, PLL, VCO, mixer, filters, etc) for wireless communications
- Practical experience in the measurements of CMOS integrated circuits EDA tools dedicated to the design of integrated circuits (e.g. Cadence, Agilent ADS, Pspice, etc)
The RF IC group provides a stimulating environment, good working conditions, and collaborations within a team of 10 researchers and PhD students working on related projects.
- Starting date: as soon as possible.
- Contract duration: 18 months
Application has to include a CV, copies of the diplomas, significant published or unpublished papers, motivation letter and three letters of reference (or submit 3 reference names). Please send your application at the latest at the end of February 2012 to Dr. Catherine Dehollain
