Within the frame of the ERC Advanced Research Grant AnalogCreate () of Prof. Georges Gielen, several PhD positions and one postdoc position are available.
Analog, mixed-signal and RF electronic circuits are essential in many applications like IoT, biomedical, automotive, etc.
Yet, their design remains time consuming and error prone due to the analog complexity and the lack of automation. The overall goal of the AnalogCreate ERC AdG research program is to drastically increase the productivity, optimality and correctness of designing integrated analog electronic circuits.
The novelty of the research is to explore and apply innovative algorithmic techniques, including AI and machine learning, to do this.
Emphasis is on the autonomous self-learning of the design constraints.
This job opening covers a postdoc research position within the frame of the AnalogCreate ERC project. The candidate will contribute to investigating and developing self-learning algorithms towards the automated synthesis of analog circuits.
She / he will have to prototype and validate the methods on actual designs. She / He will also take responsibility in the overall coordination and feasibility demonstration of the AnalogCreate project in interaction with the PhD researchers in the ERC project.
Candidates should have a strong expertise in either integrated circuits
Candidates should be motivated,independent, show critical thinking and scientific curiosity, and should have strong team-player skills.
