• Doctoral Thesis: “Compact Modeling of Semiconductor Devices at Cryogenic Temperatures for Quantum Computing The industrial doctorate at Infineon: Pursue a doctoral degree at a university and gain professional experience simultaneously – an ideal start for your career. Advance your research with us and profit from our vast network of doctoral candidates and the expertise of a university. Mentorship is handled by both by university and dedicated Infineon employees. We are offering a doctoral thesis dealing with compact modeling of semiconductor devices of an Infineon technology at cryogenic temperatures, comprising test-chip development, measurement, characterization, development of model equations and parameter extraction. Your models will be used to develop control circuits for qubits along with other applications. The thesis will be written in cooperation with Université catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain) –Electrical Engineering Department (ELEN) of the Institute for Information and Communication Technologies, Electronics and Applied Mathematics (ICTEAM), under the supervision of professors Valeriya Kilchytska and Jean-Pierre Raskin.

    • 1 PhD and 1 Post Doc Open Position at ICN2 in the Advanced Electronic Materials and Devices Group

The researchers’s main role will be the development of energy autonomous neural interfaces. The researchers will be in charge of the microfabrication of energy harvesting devices based on triboelectricity (TENGs) and their characterization under different working conditions. Specifically, the researchers will focus on (1) development of clean room protocols for TENG fabrication, (2) morphological and electrical characterization of devices, (3) TENG coupling with neural interfaces study.

  • PhD position in the Department of Electrical and Information Technology
    The research work is intended to be in the field of microelectronics, focusing on the statistical analysis of neuromorphic computing architectures. The objective is to develop physics-based simulation approaches for neuromorphic computing architectures, specifically considering the stochastic behavior of synaptic elements in artificial neural networks (e.g., Resistive RAM). The main emphasis is on the development and implementation of a framework to evaluate the stochastic behavior for the identification of suitable neuromorphic computing architectures.
    Starting date: As soon as possible
    Duration: 3 years
