Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Electri­cal and Com­pu­ter Engi­nee­ring, Insti­tute of Cir­cuits and Sys­tems, Chair of Cir­cuit Design and Net­work Theory

The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

Rese­arch Asso­ciate / PhD Stu­dent / Post­doc
in High Fre­quency Cir­cuit Design

(Sub­ject to per­so­nal qua­li­fi­ca­tion employees are remu­n­e­ra­ted accord­ing to salary group E 13 TV-L)
In the frame of the DFG pro­ject ADAMIS, the Chair of Cir­cuit Design and Net­work Theory at the Insti­tute of Cir­cuits and Sys­tems offers a job posi­tion.
The posi­tion starts at 1. April 2019 and is fix ter­med until 31. March 2022. The period of em-ploy­ment is gover­ned by the Fixed Term Rese­arch Con­tracts Act (Wis­sen­schafts­zeit­ver-trags­ge­setz - Wiss­ZeitVG).The posi­tion offers the chance to obtain fur­ther aca­de­mic qua­li­fi­ca­tion (e.g. PhD or habi­li­ta­tion the­sis).
The Chair of Cir­cuit Design and Net­work Theory is a lea­ding Chair in the design of radio fre­quency and mil­li­me­ter-wave inte­gra­ted cir­cuits and has recei­ved several world records and awards (e.g. the Voda­fone Inno­va­tion Award).
In ADAMIS, a trans­mit­ter front­end with fre­quen­cies up to 270 GHz is desi­gned in lea­ding-edge BiC­MOS tech­no­logy. We want to explore novel archi­tec­tu­res for mil­li­me­ter-wave trans­mit­ters which can be tuned accord­ing to actual per­for­mance needs to allow an opti­mum situa­tion-spe­ci­fic trade-off bet­ween data-rate (up to 50 Gb/s), trans­mis­sion dis­tance (up to 10 m) and dc power con­sump­tion by app­ly­ing adap­ti­vity at sys­tem, cir­cuit and device level. The pro­ject is e.g. in coope­ra­tion with the Karls­ru­her Insti­tut für Tech­no­lo­gie.

Work­ing field:

Your task will be the deve­lop­ment (ana­ly­sis, simu­la­tion, lay­out, mea­su­re­ment and opti­miza­t­ion) of the adap­tive inte­gra­ted chip front­end in BiC­MOS tech­no­logy. Among the key com­po­n­ents of the trans­mit­ter to be deve­lo­ped are the power ampli­fier, the up-mixer, the vec­tor modu­la­tor for beam­for­ming con­trol and the oscil­la­tor inter­face. Fur­ther­more you cont­ri­bute to sys­tem inte­gra­tion and tests, will publish sci­en­ti­fic papers and attend pro­ject mee­tings and con­fe­ren­ces.


We are loo­king for a can­di­date with a very good or good uni­ver­sity degree and if app­lica­ble a doc­to­rate in electri­cal engi­nee­ring, com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons tech­no­logy or infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy with pro­found know­ledge in ana­log cir­cuit design. For that, skills are espe­cially nee­ded in CAD-based cir­cuit simu­la­ti­ons and cir­cuit lay­out. Know­ledge in radio fre­quency and if pos­si­ble mil­li­me­ter-wave cir­cuit design would be advan­ta­ge­ous. Inte­rest in new tech­no­lo­gies, inde­pen­dent and fle­xi­ble way of working, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and team­work skills, good Eng­lish, inno­va­tive and ana­lyti­cal thin­king and high com­mit­ment are expec­ted.

What we of­fer:

The job offer pro­vi­des an excel­lent plat­form for inter­di­sci­pli­nary coope­ra­tion and the ability to push your per­so­nal sci­en­ti­fic deve­lop­ment. Post­doc­to­ra­tes have the oppor­tu­nity to lead pres­tig-ious rese­arch pro­jects.

How to ap­ply:

App­li­ca­ti­ons from women are par­ti­cu­larly wel­come. The same app­lies to people with disa­bi­li­ties.
Please send your com­plete app­li­ca­tion inclu­ding copies of your CV and cer­ti­fi­ca­tes until 10.12.2018 (stam­ped arri­val date of the uni­ver­sity cen­tral mail ser­vice app­lies) pre­fe­r­a­bly via the TU Dres­den Secu­re­Mail Por­tal by sen­ding it as a sin­gle pdf docu­ment to or to TU Dres­den, Fakul­tät Elek­tro­tech­nik und Infor­ma­ti­ons­tech­nik, Insti­tut für Grund­la­gen der Elek­tro­tech­nik und Elek­tro­nik, Pro­fes­sur für Schal­tungs­tech­nik und Netz­werk­theo­rie, Herrn Prof. Ellin­ger, Helm­holtz­str. 10, 01069 Dres­den.
