Skilled and committed employees are a crucial factor in the success of Linköping University. And we need more of them. Our core expertise comes from teachers and researchers, but a successful university requires experienced and motivated employees in many fields. Everyone is important. We need to recruit many new employees thanks to, among all, an expansion in our research activity. We need you here. We look forward to receiving your application!
The department of Electrical Engineering (ISY) is central to the engineering education at the Institute of Technology, one of four faculties at Linköping University, and this regards both basic and applied knowledge. The research is based on industrial needs, and ranges from basic research to direct application in collaboration projects.

We are looking for a PhD student in Integrated Circuits and Systems.
Your work assignments
Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is one of the most powerful and versatile analytical methods to probe the molecular information of materials which makes it a robust and widespread analytical instrument for modern organic chemistry, biology, medicine, and industry. However, the strong requirement of homogeneous magnetic fields to perform highly resolved spectroscopy experiments led to bulky and expensive NMR spectroscopy systems based on superconducting magnet technology. To tackle this issue, shrinking the NMR equipment to a portable scale by miniaturizing the magnet and excitation coil and moving from the modular and complex electronics into a CMOS ASIC can be a solution to provide a portable and affordable equipment for rapid and low-cost experiments. The objective of this project is to overcome the challenges associated with the miniaturized NMR spectroscopy to have a sensitive and portable sensor platform for in-situ probing. The hired Ph.D. student is expected to create state-of-the-art technical platform for design of low power analog/RF front-end with special focus on NMR spectroscopy. The project is expected to generate highly innovative circuits and systems solutions to be designed in advanced CMOS and possibly other semiconductor technologies, measured, verified, demonstrated, and published in top international journals and conferences in the field.
As a PhD student, you devote most of your time to doctoral studies and the research projects of which you are part. Your work may also include teaching or other departmental duties, up to a maximum of 20% of full-time.
Your work will be performed at the Division of Integrated Circuits and Systems at department of Electrical Engineering in Linköping University. The group has more than 40 years of experience in design of advanced integrated circuits, and in close collaboration with major semiconductor companies and academic research organizations worldwide.
