Postdoctoral position in mm-wave CMOS receivers

The Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience focuses on research, innovation and education within the fields of future electronics, photonics, bio- and nanosystems. A close collaboration with Swedish and international partners within academia, industry and society enables scientific excellence and creates an innovative environment. In addition to the 200 researchers and PhD students, MC2 houses a cleanroom for micro- and nanofabrication with the latest equipment.

Information about The Microwave Electronics Laboratory (MEL)
The Microwave Electronics Laboratory (MEL) is the largest out of eight laboratories at the Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience. At MEL we are more than 40 people performing world-class research on high speed electronic components, circuits, and systems for a wide range of communication, industrial, and remote sensing applications in the frequency range from 1 GHz to 500 GHz and beyond. Our facilities include a uniquely well-equipped laboratory for advanced millimeter wave measurements.

A major part our research is targeting the need for higher capacity and improved energy efficiency in future wireless communication systems. We are now investigating drastically new wireless solutions, involving devices with up to hundreds of antennas and exploration of millimeter wave frequency bands. One of our main research objectives is, therefore, to establish a new generation of wireless hardware that can be scalable to the needs in such applications.

This post-doctoral position aims to explore the possibilities of modern high-speed semiconductor technology for realization of highly integrated transmitter and receiver circuits for future wireless systems. You will investigate solutions that combine millimeter wave analog front-end circuit designs with high speed digital processing for enhanced performance and flexibility. Such solutions are essential to enable realization of larger and more complex wireless systems in the future.

Major responsibilities
In this post-doctoral position your major responsibility will be to perform world-class research on advanced integrated SiGe BiCMOS and RF CMOS based transmitter and receiver circuit solutions for future wireless communication applications. You will be a key member in a team of PhD students and senior researchers, both from industry and academia, working both with digital- and analog circuit building blocks and with realization of complete wireless system demonstrators. Most of the time will be available for your own research, but some part will also include supervision of PhD and MSc thesis students within the research team.

Position summary
Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of two years (1+1).

Qualifications
To qualify, you should hold a doctoral degree, generally not older than three years, in microwave/radio frequency electronics, high-speed integrated circuit design, or other related disciplines. Experience in design, layout and manufacturing of integrated circuits in the Cadence design environment is required. It is also essential that you have experience from high frequency measurements.

The successful candidate will have an outstanding academic track record and have published first authored papers in internationally recognized peer-reviewed journals. Important qualities are enthusiasm, to be able to drive and conclude projects independently, take own initiatives and discuss/develop own ideas, be creative and have a problem-solving ability. The project is in collaboration with other researchers and industry and thus excellent cooperation and social abilities are highly important. Good communication skills in English are necessary as English is the primary language in our laboratory. If Swedish is not your native language, Chalmers can offer Swedish courses.

Chalmers continuously strives to be an attractive employer. Equality and diversity are substantial foundations in all activities at Chalmers.
