The group of Integrated Devices and Systems has a vacancy for a Ph.D. student to work on a breakthrough development in silicon transistors. The objective of the project is to develop a transistor that will last forever. Through a precise study of the normal degradation of transistors and the underlying physics and chemistry, we will work on methods to counteract the degradation and wear-out, extending the lifetime, and therefore contributing to “green electronics”. We seek to concentrate on CMOS transistors and their wearout due to stress-induced leakage current. Within the project, we cooperate with several industrial partners and two academic partners with a strong international reputation. An internship is part of the 4-year program. The focal point of the research is experimentation, combined with analysis and model development. You will have full access to state of the art characterization equipment as well as the MESA+ Nanolab for experimentation.
Type of work: 50% experimental studies, 20% material analysis, 20% material and defect modelling, 10% educational tasks.
- You are a highly motivated and enthusiastic researcher (F/M)
- You have a M.Sc. degree in the field of electrical engineering, applied physics, materials science or a closely related study program.
- Excellent experimental skills are a prerequisite.
- You have good team spirit and multidisciplinary curiosity, and like to work in an internationally oriented environment where many cultures meet.
- You are fluent in English.
We offer an interesting temporary research position in a dynamic and international environment, combining the benefits of academic research with a topic of high industrial relevance. The University of Twente (UT) offers excellent working conditions, an exciting scientific environment, and a green and lively campus with lots of sports facilities and an international scientific community.
You will be appointed on a fulltime PhD position for four years, with a qualifier in the first year.
You will have a full status as an employee at the UT, including pension and health care benefits.
Your salary will range from EUR 2.325,- (1st year) to EUR 2.972,- (4th year) per month, plus holiday allowance (8%) and end-of-year bonus (8.3%).
You can make use of excellent facilities for professional and personal development.
You will receive good secondary conditions, in accordance with the collective labour agreement CAO-NU for Dutch universities.
