    To qualify, you should hold a doctoral degree, generally not older than three years, in microwave/radio frequency electronics, FPGA design, or other related disciplines. It is also essential that you have experience from high frequency measurements.


    The successful candidate will have an outstanding academic track record and have published first authored papers in internationally recognized peer-reviewed journals. Important qualities are enthusiasm, to be able to drive and conclude projects independently, take own initiatives and discuss/develop own ideas, be creative and have a problem-solving ability. The project is in collaboration with other researchers and industry and thus excellent cooperation and social abilities are highly important. Good communication skills in English are necessary as English is the primary language in our laboratory. If Swedish is not your native language, Chalmers can offer Swedish courses.

    Responsibilities/ Job Description

    In this post-doctoral position your major responsibility will be to perform world-class research on advanced integrated SiGe BiCMOS based transmitter and receiver circuit solutions for future wireless communication and radar applications. You will be a key member in a team of PhD students and senior researchers, both from industry and academia, working with advanced high data rate communication and radar. Most of the time will be available for your own research, but some part will also include supervision of PhD and MSc thesis students within the research team.

    About the Department

    The Microwave Electronics Laboratory (MEL) is the largest out of seven laboratories at the Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience. At MEL we are more than 30 people performing world-class research on high speed electronic components, circuits, and systems for a wide range of communication, industrial, and remote sensing applications in the frequency range from 1 GHz to 500 GHz and beyond. Our facilities include a uniquely well-equipped laboratory for advanced millimeter wave measurements.

    A major part of our research is targeting the need for higher capacity and improved energy efficiency in future wireless communication systems. We now investigate drastically new wireless solutions, involving in-house designed integrated circuits working at frequencies from 120-260 GHz with bandwidths exceeding 100GHz.

    This post-doctoral position aims to explore the possibilities of modern high-speed semiconductor technology for realization of highly integrated transmitter and receiver circuits for future wireless systems. You will investigate solutions that combine millimeter wave analog front-end circuit designs with high speed digital processing for enhanced performance and flexibility. Such solutions are essential to enable realization of larger and more complex wireless systems in the future.
