Research Associate in CMOS SPAD Time of Flight Sensors

University of Edinburgh - School of Engineering

Research Associate in CMOS SPAD Time of Flight Sensors A 24 month research position is available in the UK Quantum Hub in Quantum Enhanced Imaging to the Universities of Glasgow, Edinburgh, Strathclyde, Bristol, Heriot-Watt and Oxford to develop a family of quantum-enhanced multidimensional cameras operating across a range of wavelengths, timescales and length-scales.

The Edinburgh research associate will lead the development of single photon avalanche diode (SPAD) arrays and time-resolved electronics in advanced CMOS technology nodes. You will join an existing research team in Edinburgh working on CMOS integrated circuits and SPAD sensors. The candidate will be responsible for the design, layout and verification of time-resolved electronics and SPAD imaging arrays for time-of-flight ranging demonstrators. You will ideally have strong digital electronics background or full-custom mixed signal design experience. You will be required to write FPGA firmware and Matlab software to acquire data from the custom CMOS SPAD sensors at a later stage in the project.

You will co-operate closely with other team members in the bonding, optoelectronic characterisation and software interfacing of the CMOS chips in time-of-flight imaging demonstrators. There will be opportunities for travel to the other University sites. Collaborative working with other teams will be strongly encouraged. You will be expected to write, publish and present research papers in top quality international conferences and journals.

You will have a good honours degree in Computer Science, Electronic Engineering or relevant discipline. Experience in hardware description languages, FPGAs and software development is essential. Knowledge of signal and image processing, time-resolved imaging techniques or optical systems is desirable.

This is full time and fixed term for 24 months. This post is available from January 2017.

Closing Date: Monday 12th December 2016 at 5pm (GMT)
