A PhD Research Fellow position in microelectronics for biosensing is available at the Department of Informatics. The candidate will involve in a group effort on System-on-Chip (IoT) biosensing focusing on chip design. The position is fully funded for 3 years with potential extension to 4 years with 25% of compulsory work (teaching, supervision duties, and research assistance).
The PhD project will explore state-of-the-art microelectronics for implementation of novel biomedical systems (SoCs). Based on our previous success on microwave biosensing, radio frequency (RF for microwave) microelectronics is an essential part of the project including design, modelling and testing. The project may also involve joint efforts with Norwegian microelectronics companies, especially on ultra-wideband (UWB) sensor solutions.
More detailed the project involve non-invasive biomedical sensing of biomarkers like blood glucose and remote sensing of vital signs. A primary project theme is microelectronics for low power, microwave biomedical sensor for non-invasive glucose sensing. A complete design cycle of nanometre microelectronics including measurement and characterization is required.
Fully funded project. Salary 40000-43000 NOK/month (~ 4000-4300 EUR/month). Separate travel and ASIC tapeout budget included.
