The RF-Systems group of the Institute for Communications Engineering and RF-Systems (http://www.jku.at/nthfs
) at the Johannes Kepler University Linz (JKU) offers positions for pre-doctoral researchers that are to be filled as soon as possible. The research topics of our group include integrated RF circuits, passive RF components, as well as system design and signal processing for wireless sensing and localization. A strong focus is on mm-wave radar systems for automotive and industrial applications.
Our position involves RF-system design and/or signal-processing related research in the following areas:
o Design of low-power mm-wave circuits on SiGe, BiCMOS, and CMOS technology
o Concept development for novel mm-wave sensors and sensor systems
o Design of RF sensors and sensor systems (Radar)
o Radar signal analysis, e.g. with compressed sensing and machine learning
The research project is carried out together with industry and offers the possibility of a PhD thesis.
Candidates should have a master-equivalent degree in Electrical Engineering, Electronics Engineering, or Mechatronics, respectively, or in a closely related field like Computer Sciences, Mathematics or Physics. The working languages are English and German.
o Experience in at least one of the following fields:
• RF circuits, systems and measurement techniques
• RF circuit design on SiGe, BiCMOS, or CMOS
• Digital signal processing in general or special knowledge in compressed sensing or machine learning
• Software and hardware co-development, e.g. with DSP- and/or FPGA
o Independent and self-motivated working
o Good IT skills, i.e. simulation tools (RF, circuit design, etc.), Python, Matlab
o Carrying out research in one of the aforementioned projects
o Publication and presentation of the scientific work in journals and at international conferences
