Normally-off AlGaN/GaN HEMTs for power switching applications


Project Description

Title: PhD positions with Queensland Micro- and Nanotechnology Centre

Queensland Micro- and Nanotechnology Centre (QMNC) at Griffith University, Australia is a leading research centre with the primary focus on developing the next generation SiC and GaN based power semiconductor devices. Further information about the centre can be found at: https://www.griffith.edu.au/science-aviation/queensland-micro-nanotechnology-centre.

PhD Positions:

Our research team at QMNC recently secured a substantial grant on the development of the next generation High Electron Mobility Transistor (HEMT). Two PhD positions are available in the following fields:

1. Switching mode power supply(SMPS) circuit design using AlGaN/GaN HEMT devices
2. Normally-off AlGaN/GaN HEMT design and characterization

Selection criteria

1. For position #1: knowledge and experience in
a) Design and simulation of SMPS circuits using relevant simulation tools (e. g. LTspice)
2. For position #2: knowledge and experience in
a) Physics of semiconductor devices
b) Semiconductor device simulation tools (Atlas, Sentaurus)
3. An excellent academic record;
4. Ability to work in a team with a wide range of responsibilities
5. For international students: IELTS 6.5 overall (no less than 6 in any category), or TOEFL ibt 79 (at least 21 writing, 18 for speaking, 13 reading, 12 listening).

The opportunity:

Scholarships covering tuition fees and providing a living allowance of AUD$27,082 per year for three years are available to both Australian and international students. Students are also supported to attend an international conference during their PhD and are provided with professional development and training opportunities, to complement their research project.
Interested applicants should send their CV to: (Dr. Hamid Amini).
