The positions are limited in time for 3-5 years with the possibility of an extension.
The University of Freiburg research focus lies in the design and development of low power, analogue and digital CMOS circuits for applications in medical engineering, sensor- and communication techniques.
Energy autonomous systems, A/D-converters, sensor readout and implantable interface electronics for biomedical applications are the main research areas.
Current PhD topics are exemplarily found in but not limited to:
high speed Sigma-Delta A/D converters, energy scavenging systems, neural stimulators, closed loop gyro readout, and more.
Post-docs may be responsible for one of our research areas.
The chair is equipped with a variety of high-end, commercial IC development tools, a modern computer-infrastructure and a laboratory with measurement equipment for the analogue and digital circuit design.
