Assistant Professor(s) or Associate Professor(s) Digital Design

Faculty Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) brings together three disciplines - electrical engineering, mathematics and computer science. Combined, they reinforce each other and are the driving force behind the technology we use in our daily lives. Technology such as the electricity grid, which our faculty is helping to make future-proof. We are also working on a world in which humans and computers reinforce each other. We are mapping out disease processes using single cell data, and using mathematics to simulate gigantic ash plumes after a volcanic eruption. There is plenty of room here for ground-breaking research. We educate innovative engineers and have excellent labs and facilities that underline our strong international position. In total, more than 1,100 employees and 4,000 students work and study in this innovative environment.

Functie omschrijving

The Department of Microelectronics has tenure-track Assistant Professor openings in digital in digital system and circuit design:

  • High-speed communication: Hardware realization of signal processing/machine learning algorithms for use in communication SoCs or other large digital hardware architectures;

  • Ultra-low-power for biomedical applications: Ultra-low-power hardware realization of signal processing/machine learning/control algorithms for use in smart sensors and biomedical implants.

Generic platforms (FPGA) and emerging technologies (neuromorphic computing) are of interest.
The positions are intended to strengthen our research lines in Health & Well-being, Next Generation Wireless Communications, and Autonomous Sensor Systems.

TU Delft is a world-class university ranked 21st in engineering and technology in the 2020 Times Higher Education World University Rankings. Established in 1842, it is the largest and oldest institute of technology in the Netherlands. TU Delft's eight faculties are home to over 20,000 students and some 900 academic staff and cover the entire spectrum of technology, with a combined science, engineering and design focus. The Department of Microelectronics has a strong interdisciplinary research and education programme in the areas of microelectronics and digital design, signal processing, microwave systems and radar, and provides excellent microfabrication infrastructure and electrical /physical characterisation facilities.

The Department of Microelectronics, headed by Professor Kofi Makinwa, has a strong interdisciplinary research and education programme in the areas of microelectronics and digital design, signal processing, microwave systems and radar. With 11 IEEE Fellows among the staff, an excellent microfabrication infrastructure, electrical and physical characterization facilities, and a strong international academic and industrial network, the department provides high-level expertise in each of these areas throughout the entire system chain. Microelectronics is fundamentally a multi-disciplinary field of research, exploring the physics, materials and chemistry required tomake devices work. It is also multidisciplinary with regard to its widevariety of applications, as it plays a crucial role in all fields ofinnovation, ranging from advanced health care to telecommunications andsmart grids. The ever-increasing demand for processing power, sensingcapabilities and miniaturisation makes microelectronics a highlyinnovative research field.
