Research Fellow (circuit and system design for positioning systems)

At TU Dresden, Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Institute of Principles of Electrical and Electronic Engineering the Chair of Circuit Design and Network Theory (CCN) offers a position starting as soon as possible as a
 
Research Fellow
in the field of circuit and system design for positioning systems
(Subject to personal qualification employees are remunerated according to salary group
up to E 14 TV-L)
 
limited for 3 years. The period of employment is governed by § 2 Fixed Term Research Contracts Act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz - WissZeitVG). The position offers the chance to obtain further academic qualification (e.g. PhD or habilitation thesis).
The position is within the project Lynceus2Market funded by the European Union. It is aimed at the development of an innovative positioning system for the rescue of passengers from sea in case of a ship sinking emergency.
Tasks: The main goal of the project is the development of a received signal strength indicator (RSSI) positioning system as well as secondary radar system in the GHz range. Theoretical investigations, the design and implementation of switched oscillators as active reflector tags for a radar system have to be conducted. Furthermore, a base station including digital baseband processing has to be developed. For the investigation of the RSSI based positioning system specific, algorithms have to be implemented in an application specific integrated circuit (ASIC). Most recent semiconductor technologies are available to realize the chips. The CAD-programme Cadence is used for simulations and chip layout. All analogue and mixed-signal circuits have to be verified by measurements. Due to the high innovation potential, the project is well suitable for a PhD-thesis. The position provides an excellent platform for interdisciplinary cooperation.
Requirements: Excellent to good university degree (master´s, Dipl.-Ing.) or PhD degree in electrical engineering, communications, information engineering or computer science; knowledge in circuit design; independent and flexible working attitude; innovative and analytical thinking; strong commitment; communicative team-player; good English; and scientific curiosity. Knowledge in the following areas is advantageous: integrated analogue, digital and mixed-signal circuit design, high frequency engineering, communications, positioning systems as well as measurement techniques. German language skills are helpful.
Applications from women are particularly welcome. The same applies to people with disabilities.
Interested candidates are requested to submit concise application material, including CV and copy of transcripts, until 16.06.2015 (stamped arrival date of the university central mail service applies) preferably per e-mail in one PDF-file to frank.ellinger@tu-dresden.de (Please note: We are currently not able to receive electronically signed and encrypted data.) or to TU Dresden, Fakultät Elektrotechnik und Informationstechnik, Institut für Grundlagen der Elektrotechnik und Elektronik, Professur für Schaltungstechnik und Netzwerktheorie, Herrn Prof. F. Ellinger, 01062 Dresden. Please submit copies only, as your application will not be returned to you.
