postdoctoral positions in Compact Modeling in Tarragona (Spain)

As Professor in the Universitat Rovira i Virgili (Tarragona, Catalonia, Spain), I am going to apply for two  postdoctoral positions (funded by the Spanish Ministry and the Catalan Government) related to our research projects about Compact Modeling of semiconductor devices: in particular, the European Union -funded "DOMINO" project (of which I am the coordinator, and which targets modeling of organic and oxide TFTs), and our national projects addressing the modeling of GaN HEMTs and nanowire MOSFETs.

The candidate for one of the position should be a person who holds a PhD as awarded between January 1 2014 and December 31 2015. The candidate for the other 
position should be a person who holds a PhD as awarded between January 1 2011 and December 31 2013. The duration of both fellowships will be 24 months.

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 research 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 our projects: organic and oxide Thin Film Transistors (TFTs), GaN HEMTs, nanowire FETs, multi-gate MOSFETs (FinFETs, DG MOSFETs,...), ...

The postdoc positions, which will be a contract, will have a duration of 2-3 years. The net salary will be around 1900 Euro/months.

The postdoctoral researcher will work in the compact device team, led by Prof Benjamin Iñiguez, belonging to the Nanoelectronics and Photonics Systems Group (NEPHOS) in the Department of Electronic, Electrical and Automatic Control Engineering of the Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV). This team is a worldwide well recognized pioneering group in the development of compact models for advanced and emerging semiconductor devices. The team has participated in a number of European Union funded projects aout this topic and has led some of them.

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 EuropeThe city has a population of 120,202 inhabitants
