Belgium : PhD position-Department of Information Technology
SUMO Lab is part of the IBCN research group (http://www.ibcn.intec.ugent.be) of the Department of Information Technology (INTEC) at Ghent University, Belgium.
We offer fully paid 4 year PhD positions that can start immediately. The positions are funded by the Research Foundation – Flanders. The positions are open to applicants of any nationality with good knowledge of English and/or Dutch.
The main objective of these projects is the development of robust and automated parameterized model order reduction and behavioral modeling methods for the efficient and accurate representation of modern electronic systems (linear and nonlinear), which take into account frequency/time and additional design parameters (e.g. layout features). These advanced modeling tools are needed to significantly speed-up design activities (e.g. optimization and variability analysis) and conquer the design complexities of modern electronic systems at a reduced time-to-market.
We are looking for Master degree candidates in electrical engineering, computer science, physics or mathematics. Strong interdisciplinary interest in modeling, simulation, design of electronic systems, system and control theory is required, and excellent programming skills (e.g. Matlab, Java) are highly desirable.
We invite interested applicants to send their CV, as well as a short summary of their research interests and motivation by e-mail to Dr. Francesco Ferranti (firstname.lastname@example.org) before 1 March 2014. Indicate “Application: PhD Researcher PMOR for electronic systems” in the email subject.
Note that all applications will be thoroughly screened in order to satisfy the high scientific standards of our research group.
Application Deadline : 28 February 2014
