Postdoc – Electromagnetic characterization of interconnections used with flexible substrates

Object: 12 months Position of post-doc for electromagnetic characterization of interconnections used with flexible substrates.

Job description: The successful candidate will participate to studies for electromagnetic characterization of substrates dedicated to flexible electronics and to interconnects high frequency characterization. The work will focus on the development and implementation of protocols for extraction of electromagnetic parameters of interconnects from different S-parameter measurements on a wide frequency range (1 MHz -100GHz). The candidate is expected to develop or adapt tools for the characterization and simulation of the different structures studied. The final goal is to propose design rules for the fabrication process optimization and the performance enhancement of interconnects on flexible substrates. The work involves simulation, realization and characterization aspects. This position is sponsored by the CPER CIA (Contrat de Plan Etat Région Campus de recherche en Intelligence Ambiante).

Position availability:
November 2013

Candidate profile:
We expect the candidate to have strong skills in
– microwave design and measurements
– EM simulation (HFSS, COMSOL,…)
– computational electromagnetics (FDTD, finite element,…)
– programming
Experience in Cleanroom processes would also be appreciated.
