Research Position:

Title: Research Grant - BIM/Nº5 - 30/01/2020 - LAY(RF)^2 - 1
Funding Reference Number: BIM/Nº5 - 30/01/2020 - LAY(RF)^2 - 1
Summary: A research position for one Research Grant is opened at Instituto de Telecomunicações, in the scope of the Project LAY(RF)^2 - Ready-to-Fabricate RF and mmWave Integrated Circuit Layouts. The salary is in agreement with the table of grant amounts awarded directly by FCT for positions held in Portugal (www.fct.pt/apoios/bolsas/valores).
Scientific Area: Basic Sciences and Enabling Technologies
Group: Integrated Circuits - Lx
Admission Requirements: MSc degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering, or similar, and also, expertise on deep learning techniques and electronic design automation tools for analog and mixed-signal integrated circuit design. Candidates should submit a cover letter explaining the interest in the position, detailed Curriculum Vitae with transcripts, copy of the relevant certificates (e.g., the degree certificate). IMPORTANT NOTICE: If the selected candidate has a degree obtained outside Portugal, his degree must be certified in Portugal For more information see: Direcção-Geral do Ensino Superior (DGES): https://www.dges.gov.pt/pt
Work Objectives: The workplan is integrated in the LAY(RF)^2 project and addresses the development of electronic design automation tools that answer to several modeling, simulation and layout-induced issues that emerged with the state-of-the-art radio-frequency and millimeter wave circuit and system topologies, and also, deep nanometer integration technologies. Particularly, for this position, the work will be centered on the development of advanced machine learning methods, e.g., deep artificial neural networks, that will speed up the automatic generation (device, sizing and layout) of the radio-frequency and millimeter wave circuits.
Applicable legislation: A fellowship will be celebrated according to the regulations defined by FCT, “Regulation of Instituto de Telecomunicações’ fellowships” and ” Estatuto do Bolseiro de Investigação”, according to Law no. 40/2004, dated August 18 (Status of Scientific Research Fellow), in its actual redaction, and also by Fundação para Ciência e Tecnologia, I.P.
