- DIRECTOR @ CHIPS-IT an Italian Foundation whose mission is to advance research in Integrated Circuit design
The Director’s goal would not only be to set up the organization, but to create a vision for the Integrated Circuit design sector and execute it by leveraging the present funding landscape embodied in the EU Chips act and the Italian legislative initiatives directed to promote semiconductor manufacturing and design and to sustain industry in this domain.
As a consequence, the candidates must possess proven knowledge and expertise of worldwide microelectronic design research and industrial ecosystems. In particular, the candidates must understand what drives research on Integrated Circuits and their industrial applications. Since the Foundation is a new institution that aims to grow into a mid-sized research organization by global standards, the candidates must possess experience in driving organizations focused on IC design, research on IC design, research on microelectronics
Deadline: March 18, 2024
Duration: 3 years
- PhD position “Compact Modeling of Reconfigurable Transistors” in the Research Group Nanoelectronics/Device Modeling
The project in the research field of microelectronics aims at compact modelling of reconfigurable MOS transistors. Goal of the project is the development of a DC/AC Verilog-A compact model for standard design tools to be used for new circuit design concepts in the field of hardware security. Starting point is a physics-based analytical compact current model for Schottky barrier transistors which has already been published by the research group at THM.
Starting date: Around May 2024
Duration: 3 years
- 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
- Post-doctoral position at CROMA
A post-doctoral position is available at CROMA, dedicated to the research activities of DECID and funded by the IPCEI Nano 2026 project named DECIDED. The envisioned work will focus on the low-frequency noise electrical characterization of HgCdTe infrared photodetectors manufactured by LYNRED. Given the low-temperature operation of these devices, the research will place significant emphasis on the instrumental aspects of noise measurement, utilizing various cryogenic probe stations. The ultimate objective of this work is to establish a new characterization method that can be seamlessly transferred to the industrial context of LYNRED. This research will therefore benefit from both academic and industrial environments
Starting date: between June and September 2024
- Postdoctoral researcher in the Novel Energy-Oriented Materials Group
Novel Energy-Oriented Materials Group works in materials science and electrochemistry for energy-related applications. It leads several research projects and industrial contracts in energy storage and conversion. We design and synthesise new materials, including graphene and other nanocarbons, nanostructured conducting polymers and hybrid nanocomposite materials for their use in energy storage devices, such as rechargeable lithium batteries or other non-lithium technologies (i.e. sodium and zinc), supercapacitors and hybrid devices. Main task of the researcher – Development of a novel battery concept based on nanopastes.
Start: As soon as possible
