The group of Integrated Devices and Systems (IDS) has a vacancy for a Postdoc to work on CMOS transistors and their wearout due to hot-carrier degradation. The aim of the project is to investigate self-repair (recovery) of transistors and to formulate a model to describe this effect, in order to improve contemporary reliability estimates for CMOS electronics. The postdoc will continue work of a PhD student currently working on the topic.
Within the project, we cooperate with several industrial partners and two academic partners with a strong international reputation. The focal point of the research is experimentation, combined with analysis and model development. The students have full access to state of the art characterization equipment as well as the MESA+ Nanolab for experimentation.
Type of work: 50% experimental studies, 20% material analysis, 30% material and defect modelling.
We are looking for a highly motivated, positive and hardworking researcher (F/M) with a PhD degree on a topic directly related to transistor reliability. We seek candidates with good team spirit and multidisciplinary curiosity, who like to work in an internationally oriented environment where many cultures meet. Proficiency in English is a requirement. An interview will be part of the selection procedure.
The UT provides a dynamic and international environment, combining the benefits of academic research with a topic of high industrial relevance, excellent working conditions, an exciting scientific environment and a green and lively campus. We offer:
- A postdoc position for 18 months with starting date 1-May-2021 or earlier;
- Full status as an employee at the UT, including pension and health care benefits;
- Gross salary from € 3.353 per month depending on experience and qualifications, plus holiday allowance (8%) and end-of-year bonus (8.3%).
- Excellent facilities for professional and personal development;
- Good secondary conditions, in accordance with the collective labour agreement CAO-NU for Dutch universities;
- A green campus with lots of sports facilities and an international scientific community.
Information and application
Please include an application/motivation letter, emphasizing your specific interest, qualifications and motivation to apply for this position, a detailed CV (resume) and a publication list. You can apply until 31 December 2020.
For more information please contact the group secretary, Mrs. Kampman: email@example.com .
