PhD Position (m/f/d)

Innovations for High Performance Microelectronics / Leibniz-Institut für innovative Mikroelektronik (IHP), Frankfurt (Oder)

PhD Position (m/f/d) in the field of high-​speed A/D and D/A data converters

Job-​ID: 5116/21 | Department: Circuit Design | Salary: according TV-L | Working time: 40h/week (part-​time work option) | Limitation: initially 2 years with option of extension for three more years | Earliest Entry Date: 01.02.2022

The position:

As a member of the research group “Converters and High-​Speed Logic Circuits” within the Circuit Design department you will contribute to research in analog-​to-digital and digital-​to-analog converters, targeting the signal conversion bandwidth in a range of tens of GHz. Your tasks will include architecture analysis, IC design, as well as testing of A/D and D/A converters at sampling frequencies of 100 GSps and above. A growing up international team within the Circuit Design department of more than 30 scientists and engineers with broad area of experience is looking forward to you. Flat hierarchies and mutual support are important to us. We see diversity of perspectives as a great advantage for our team. We strive for a balanced gender mix in our team.

Your qualifications:

You are holding a Master's degree in electrical engineering or a comparable study area. You have a strong background in analog/HF IC design. You are already experienced in modeling and EDA tools (Matlab, IC development software, etc.). We expect a good knowledge of A/D and D/A converters’ architectures and their key parameters. Ideally, but not mandatory, you have experience in performing measurements, in designing of high frequency (>10 GHz) integrated circuits and in simulation of mixed-​signal designs.

Our Offer:

Do research in a challenging, multinational environment giving you excellent career opportunities. You will have the chance to establish international reputation at the edge of top-​notch technologies. An orientation guide will help you to quickly integrate into the institute and to familiarize yourself with the field.
