PhD Student in Next Generation mm-Wave Sensing

The Silicon Austria Labs – Doctoral College (SAL-DC) is a novel doctoral training programme for researchers focusing on the field of electronic based systems (EBS). SAL cooperates with industry, academic, and scientific partners on a regional, national, and international level with the aim to build an excellent research network and ecosystem for EBS. Fellows benefit from the training offered by SAL-DC in a highly international, interdisciplinary, and intersectoral setting to become future research leaders.

Your future responsibilities

  • Focus a: MIMO Trans­ceiver for Inte­grated Sub-THz Sensor Systems: Building Blocks and Inte­grated Circuits for MIMO Trans­ceivers above 100 GHz. 
  • Focus b: Next Gener­a­tion/​Alter­na­tive mmW-Sensing and -Imaging Concepts: Alter­na­tive and situ­a­tion aware modu­la­tion schemes as well as imaging concepts, real­iza­tions, and algo­rithms. 
  • Re­search will be focused on building blocks for sub-THz-sensing appli­ca­tions at 120, 230, 330 and 480 GHz, respec­tively, focused on RX-TX sepa­ra­tion at highest frequen­cies as well as array opti­miza­tion under the given constraints
  • The candi­date will inno­vate in either core func­tional blocks, the full sensor system, array concepts together with researchers in the SAL mm-wave labo­ra­tory

Your profile

Tech­nical skills: 
  • Good back­ground in RF-design and mmW-sensor eval­u­a­tion and depending on work either strong back­ground in inte­grated circuit design for inte­grated design-focused work or strong back­ground in RF-system concepts and math­e­matics/​simu­la­tion tools for concep­tual work

Social skills: 
  • Candi­date must be self-contained and moti­vated to explore new topics, and at the same time team player for the real­iza­tion of complex systems together with others
  • Profi­ciency in English required, German language skills not required but welcome

Personal skills: 
  • Highly moti­vated
  • Well orga­nized
  • High energy level
  • Strong analyt­ical skills required
  • Suffi­cient back­ground in elec­trical engi­neering or physics a prereq­ui­site for all candi­dates

Important Facts

  • Begin­ning of the employ­ment: September 2020
  • This posi­tion is endowed with a gross annual salary of € 40.978 based on the collec­tive agree­ment for re­search („Forschungs-Kollek­tiv­ver­trag“) and depen­ding on your expe­ri­ence and skills.
