This interdisciplinary research project is about developing organic/polymeric electronic technologies, devices and circuits for the application of nature conservation, which is a very new and important field for the future. In this project you will mainly collaborate with the Chair of Organic Devices of TU Dresden but also partly with biologists. This position offers you an excellent opportunity to develop yourself in a professional, research-oriented environment.

Tasks: You will be responsible for the conceptual planning, system architecture and circuit-level implementation of electronic systems. Your duties include e.g. electrical characterisation and modeling of carbon-based capacitive memory elements, transistors, and biological samples; design of adaptive ring oscillators, sensor circuits, and neuromorphic circuits for pattern recognition algorithms; PCB design; and performing experiments in the laboratory and in nature on some animals. You are required to publish scientific papers and attend project meetings and conferences.

Requirements: We are looking for a candidate with very good university Master´s degree or equivalent in electronics with profound knowledge in analog and mixed-signal circuit design; familiarity with electronic device physics and modeling, and interest to work in the field of nature conservation. You have experience with Spice circuit simulators, MATLAB, and preferably C or C++. Interest in new technologies, good communication and teamwork, excellent English (oral and written) as well as innovative and analytical thinking and high commitment are expected. Previous knowledge in biology or medicine can be beneficial.
Applications from women are particularly welcome. The same applies to people with disabilities.

Please submit your comprehensive application including copies of your CV and certificates until 23.11.2020 (stamped arrival date of the university central mail service applies) preferably via the TU Dresden SecureMail Portal by sending it as a single pdf document to or by mail to TU Dresden, Fakultät Elektrotechnik und Informationstechnik, Institut für Grundlagen der Elektrotechnik und Elektronik, Professur für Schaltungstechnik und Netzwerktheorie, z. H. Herrn Dr. Bahman K. Boroujeni, Helmholtzstr. 10, 01069 Dresden. Please submit copies only, as your application will not be returned to you. Expenses incurred in attending interviews cannot be reimbursed.
