The research topics of our group include integrated RF circuits, passive RF components, as well as system design and signal processing for wireless sensing and localization. A strong focus is on mm-wave radar systems for automotive and industrial applications.

RF-system design and signal-processing related research positions in the following areas are currently available:

  • Design of low-power mm-wave circuits on SiGe, BiCMOS, and CMOS technology
  • Concept development for novel mm-wave sensors and sensor systems
  • Design of RF sensors and sensor systems (Radar)
  • Radar signal analysis, e.g. with compressed sensing and machine learning

The research projects are carried out together with industry and offer the possibility of a PhD thesis.

Candidates should have a master-equivalent degree in Electrical Engineering, Electronics Engineering, or Mechatronics, respectively, or in a closely related field like Computer Sciences, Mathematics or Physics. The working languages are English and German.

    • RF circuit design on SiGe, BiCMOS, or CMOS
    • Digital signal processing in general or special knowledge in
      compressed sensing or machine learning
    • Software and hardware co-development, e.g. with DSP- and/or FPGA
  • Independent and self-motivated working
  • Good IT skills, i.e. simulation tools (RF, circuit design, etc.), Python, Matlab

Job Description:

  • Carrying out research in one of the aforementioned projects
  • Publication and presentation of the scientific work in journals and at international conferences
