The research addresses the area of integrated circuit design, with focus on RF CMOS low noise amplifiers (LNAs) and mixers. The PhD student will participate in a project entitled “Design Methods for Radio Architectures Going Nanoscale (DRAGON)” financed by the European Union. Besides LTH, the research consortium includes Ericsson, Infineon, KU-Leuven, IMEC, and TU-Graz. The project deals with the design of RF CMOS front-ends (i.e. LNA + mixer) with low noise and very high linearity at low power consumption. Such front-ends are crucial building blocks in 3G and 4G radio receivers. This is a full-time position, which includes 15% department work, mainly teaching.

Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering. The position is mainly tailored for research and education within IC design, but it is an advantage if the candidate also has some knowledge in wireless communications. In the selection of the candidate, the following aspects are taken into account: marks from Master courses, quality of Master’s thesis and possibly other projects showing independent work, previous experience in the area of IC design and wireless communications, interview with the candidate. It is desirable that the candidate is proficient in the Swedish language.

Employment as a Doctoral student can only be granted if you have been accepted to the postgraduate student program. Acceptance to the postgraduate student program is based on the estimated ability to perform well in your postgraduate studies. This is also one of the basic criteria for employment. Furthermore you need a valid university degree within a relevant study program.
