Postdoctoral position in Graphene devices and MMICs


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 academy, industry and society enables scientific excellence and creates an innovative environment. In addition to the 200 researchers and Ph D students, MC2 houses a cleanroom for micro- and nanofabrication with the latest equipment.


Information about the research and the division
At the Microwave Electronics Laboratory, we focus on application driven research on high speed electronic components, circuits and systems for future communication and remote sensing applications.

The research spans frequencies from below 1 GHz to 500 GHz. We demonstrate innovative microwave components and circuits in our own fabrication lab, the Nanofabrication Laboratory at MC2, or at external cooperation partners/foundries. We characterize our components and circuits in our state-of the-art measurement laboratory. Our research are funded mainly by SSF, VR, and KAW, and Vinnova. Due to the high interest in high frequency components based on Graphene, we now open an Assistant Professor position for research and development of high frequency integrated circuits based on Graphene transistors. The position cover transistor fabrication, characterization, and development of MMIC-processes based on SiC semiinsulating substrates. We cooperate with various academic research groups.

Major responsibilities
Your major responsibility as postdoc is to manage research projects in close cooperation with external partners from institues, industry and academy, to supervise Master students, and conduct own research on transistor and circuit design, modeling and characterization based on novel Graphene transistor processes, with focus on high frequency analog and mixed signal circuits.

The position is meritorious for future research duties within academia as well as industry/the public sector.

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

To qualify for the position of postdoc, you must have a doctoral degree in Applied Physics or Electrical Engineering, the degree should generally not be older than three years. You have experience of managing research projects in close cooperation with external partners from academy or industry, to supervise Master-students, and to conduct own research within the area of nanoelectronics with focus on device fabrication and characterization. Experience from cleanroom processing is mandatory.

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