Faculty of Engineering, LTH, Elektro- och informationsteknik

Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University has 40 000 students and 7 400 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.

LTH forms the Faculty of Engineering at Lund University, with approximately 9 000 students. The research carried out at LTH is of a high international standard and we are continuously developing our teaching methods and adapting our courses to current needs.

Subject description
Design of electronic circuits for very wideband wireless systems, in particular radio-frequency integrated circuits (RFICs) co-designed with analog-to-digital converters (ADCs).

Work duties
The main duties involved in a post-doctoral position is to conduct research. Teaching may also be included, but up to no more than 20% of working hours. The position shall include the opportunity for three weeks of training in higher education teaching and learning.

The research is in the area of integrated circuit design, targeting extremely wideband receivers. Such receivers are very important to both Electronic Warfare (EW) systems and 5G base-stations, and in this project we will cooperate with leading companies in both areas. The postdoctoral researcher will design RFICs in advanced silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technologies, pushing the limits of extremely wideband receivers by inventive design on both circuit and architecture level. It is important that the research results in fabricated and measured integrated circuits. Successfully measured circuits will be part of demonstrators created in cooperation with the companies.

Qualification requirements
Appointment to a post-doctoral position requires that the applicant has a PhD, or an international degree deemed equivalent to a PhD, within the subject of the position, completed no more than three years before the last date for applications. Under special circumstances, the doctoral degree can have been completed earlier.

Additional requirements:

  • Very good oral and written proficiency in English.
  • Specialization and experience in design of analog and radio frequency integrated circuits

Assessment criteria and other qualifications
This is a career development position primarily focused on research. The position is intended as an initial step in a career, and the assessment of the applicants will primarily be based on their research qualifications and potential as researchers. Particular emphasis will be placed on research skills within the subject.

For appointments to a post-doctoral position, the following shall form the assessment criteria:

  • A good ability to develop and conduct high quality research.
  • Teaching skills.

Additional assessment criteria:

  • Publications in analog integrated circuit design and RFIC design.
  • Courses and projects performed in analog integrated circuit design and RFIC design.
  • Working experience in integrated circuit design and RFIC design.
  • Experience in high frequency measurements.
  • Knowledge in wireless systems.

Consideration will also be given to good collaborative skills, drive and independence, and how the applicant’s experience and skills complement and strengthen ongoing research within the department, and how they stand to contribute to its future development.

Terms of employment
This is a full-time, fixed-term employment of a maximum of 2 years. The period of employment is determined in accordance with the agreement “Avtal om tidsbegränsad anställning som postdoktor” (“Agreement on fixed-term employment as a post-doctoral fellow”) between Lund University, SACO-S, OFR/S and SEKO, dated 4 September 2008.
