Compact Modeling Marie Sklodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship in Spain

The European (Horizon 2020) Call for Postdoctoral Individual Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowships (H2020-MSCA-IF-2015) is open until September 10 2015.

I am looking for one or two candidates to work in my research group at the Universitat Rovira i Virgili (Tarragona, Spain) in the field of compact modeling of advanced semiconductor devices. Therefore, I would like to receive CVs from potential applicants. Once I have selected the candidates, we will make the application.

The candidates must have a Ph D in Electrical Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Physics, Telecommunication Engineering, or related subjects.

Candidates from all countries can apply for an Individual European Fellowship provided they have not sepent more than 12 months during the last 3 years in the country of the Host Institution (in this case, Spain)

These felowships can be for one or two years. Salaries are extremely good and the prestige of having this type of fellowship is very high. For this reason, there is a tough competition to get these fellowships.

I am looking for candidates for these Marie Curie Grants, both from Europe and outside Europe. Candidates must have a good CV (preferably with more than 4 publications as first author in international journals, in order to have chances). In order to fit the Marie Curie requirements, their age should be below 35.

If successful, the postdoctoral researchers will work on the characterization of compact modeling of any of the advanced semiconductor devices targeted by our research European projects: organic and oxide TFTs, advanced III-V HEMT and III-V MOSFETs,  SOI and Multi-Gate MOSFETs, tunnel FETs.

The specific device/s in which the postdoctoral researcher will work will depend on his/her preference and background.

Candidates must send me by e-mail (to a CV or resume by AUGUST 31 2015. Successful applicants will be informed by SEPTEMBER 2, and then we will start to make the application. The successful candidates will be informed on the steps to do.

Tarragona is a small city (110000 inhabitants) on the Mediterranean coast, about 100 Km south from Barcelona, and very well connected to Barcelona and the main Spanish cities by rail and highway. Tarragona is a very old city, very important during the Roman Empire, and with a lot of historical landmarks.

The quality of life in Tarragona is excellent. Mediterranean and mild climate the whole year. Wonderful beaches around the city (even at the city). Mountains close to the city (even the Pyrenees are not far). Besides, the city is very quiet, but with an intense nightlife.

My research group in the Department of Electronic Engineering, Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV) is one of the strongest groups in compact modeling in Europe. We are leading one European project on compact modeling of organic and oxide TFTs (in which a total of 9 European universities and companies participate). We also participate on  other projects targeting other advanced devices.

I am looking forward to receiving excellent applications!
