Senior Scien­tist for mm-Wave and RF Power Ampli­fiers


High Tech Campus Villach, Euro­pa­straße 12, 9524 Villach, Austria

Silicon Austria Labs is perfor­ming cutting-edge re­search in its world-class mmWave RF Lab on the physical layer of RF systems for future 5G/​6G (UE, front and back-haul), and milli­meter-wave imaging/​sensing/​radar appli­ca­tions.

Your future responsibilities

  • Design RF power ampli­fiers for 5G massive MIMO appli­ca­tions
  • Trans­late system level speci­fi­ca­tions into design requi­re­ments from concept to physical imple­men­ta­tion
  • Charac­te­rize mm-wave ICs in detail to vali­date all the features and perfor­mance speci­fi­ca­tions

Your profile

  • Exten­sive design expe­ri­ence (8+) with RF/​Micro­wave power ampli­fiers (Doherty ampli­fiers, Chireix/​outpha­sing ampli­fiers), power tran­sis­tors, driver ampli­fiers, hybrid-based compo­n­ents
  • Design expe­ri­ence with modern DPD systems to charac­te­rize and opti­mize Doherty power ampli­fiers (AM AM, AM-PM distor­tion) and tran­sistor designs
  • Expert under­stan­ding of micro­wave measu­re­ments and cali­bra­tion methods : S-para­me­ters, PAE, drain effi­ci­ency, source/​load pull, EVM, ACP, linea­rity and distor­tion
  • Expe­ri­ence with EDA soft­ware (ADS Keysight, Virtuoso Cadence)
  • Project expe­ri­ence in using advance CMOS nodes (FDSOI expe­ri­ence a plus)
  • Master‘s degree with 5+ years expe­ri­ence in related area of exper­tise or PhD with 2+ years of expe­ri­ence

Important Facts

  • Begin­ning of the employ­ment: as soon as possible
  • This posi­tion is endowed with a gross annual salary of € 52,584 based on the collec­tive agree­ment for re­search („Forschungs-Kollek­tiv­ver­trag“) and depen­ding on your expe­ri­ence and skills.
