Job description

The groups of Semiconductor Components (SC) and BIOS-Lab-on-a-Chip has a vacancy for a post-doc position. The project focusses on new types of devices called negative-capacitance (NC) devices. These devices makes use of a special ferroelectric material that enforces the negative-capacitance effect in the silicon. The groups are now recruiting for a postdoc who will address modelling and simulation aspects, and will perform extended electrical characterization of the in-house realized NC devices.

The project is financed by the MESA+ strategic impulse
(www.utwente.nl/mesaplus) and is intended to be continued in another programme. The project is a collaboration between the SC and BIOS-Lab-on-a-Chip group at the University of Twente.
