Open Ph D scholarship on semiconductor device modeling

We offer one scholarship for a Ph D student position in the Department of Electronic Engineering in theUniversitat Rovira i Virgili (URV), in TarragonaSpain.

The duration of the grant will be for three years. The monthly salary will be about 1000 Euro/month. The position will start in January 2014.
The candidate should have a Bachelor and Master degree in Electrical Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Telecommunication Engineering or Physics. A good background in Semiconductor Physics, Semiconductor Devices, or Integrated Circuit Design will be highly appreciated.

The work to be done by the candidate will be focused on the development of new techniques of characterization and modeling of novel advanced semiconductor devices, in particular  III-V devices. It will be related to European and national projects in which the hosting group 
(the so-called NEPHOS group) participates. One recent European Union project coordinated by our NEPHOS group is COMON (COmpact MOdelling Network)

The NEPHOS group at URV is one of the most powerful teams in Europe in the area of compact modeling of semiconductor devices.
