To strengthen and expand our expertise in the field, targeting millimeter wave and THz frequencies  for future 5G-6G applications, we want to hire a professor with a specialisation in integrated wireless radio transmitters and receivers for RF / mm waves / THz communication. The integration technology will be silicon-based,  preferably CMOS or BiCMOS. Applicants are welcome to possess additional skills in adjacent fields, such as electronic / optical interfaces, signal sensing, energy harvesting, machine learning and digital signal processing.

Work duties
Work duties include:

  • Research within the subject area.
  • Teaching in the first, second and third cycles of studies.
  • Supervision of degree projects and doctoral students.
  • Actively seeking external research funding.
  • Collaboration with industry and wider society.
  • Administration related to the work duties listed above.

  • A good ability to supervise doctoral students to achieve a PhD.
  • A good ability to collaborate with wider society and communicate his or her activities.
  • A good general ability to lead and develop activities.

Additional requirements

  • Very good oral and written proficiency in English.
  • Documented supervision of doctoral students until graduation. 
  • Documented ability to attract external financing.
  • Documented international research experience.

Other qualifications

  • Documented experience in system design of integrated circuits RF / mm-wave / THz communication.
  • Documented track record of research in RF / mm-wave / THz integrated circuits for 5G and other systems.
  • Potential to be able to supplement the established research at the EIT with one adjacent research area, and combine and develop the different EIT profile areas.
  • Interest in working with new technologies (including III-V technologies) in addition to well-established silicon-based technologies.
  • A well-established and active research network.

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, first and second cycle education and innovation within the department, and how they stand to contribute to its future development.
