in circuit design
on organic, flexible, roll-to-roll-printed & plastic-based semiconductor technologies
The period of employment is governed by the Fixed Term Research Contracts Act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz - WissZeitVG). The position is in the frame of the FLEXIBILITY (Flexible Multifunctional Bendable Integrated Light-Weight Ultra-Thin Systems) project funded by the EU involving 7 industry partners and 4 research institutions. PhD students will find excellence prerequisites for an innovative PhD thesis. The first wireless communication receiver fully integrated in a piece of plastic foil (without the need for a silicon chip) will be developed. The project is coordinated by our chair and provides an excellent platform for interdisciplinary cooperation with industry partners.
Design (analyses, simulation, device modelling, layout, testing and documen-tation) of circuits and systems operating up to radio frequencies in novel OLAE (Organic and Large Area Electronics) and roll-to-toll printed technologies for wireless communications. The authoring of scientific publications and the participation at project meetings and international conferences are expected. The active involvement in project management is planned for postdocs.Requirements:
Excellent to good master, Dipl.-Ing. or PhD degree in microelectron-ics, electrical engineering, physics or chemistry. Knowledge in circuit design, inde-pendent and flexible working attitude, innovative and analytical thinking, strong commitment, communicative team-player, good English. Knowledge in the following areas is advantageous: Integrated circuit design, OLAE, device modelling, high frequency engineering, communications and semiconductor technologies, measure-ment techniques, German language.
