Research Fellow in Memristive Technology

UCL - Engineering and Technology

Location: London
Salary: £38,308 to £46,155
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 11th November 2022
Closes: 12th December 2022
Job Ref: B04-02980

About us

We wish to appoint a Research Fellow to work on a UKRI-funded project. The project aim is to explore the complex dynamic behaviour of individual and coupled memristors and to establish the utility of controlling the complex impedance of memristors for use in novel computing systems.

About the role

The objectives of the project are:

  • To measure the complex impedance of individual and coupled memristors and to establish how it can be modified using external stimuli: voltage, current, temperature, illumination
  • To establish how varying the complex impedance of one (control) memristor can modify the dynamic response of a coupled memristor
  • To draw up an initial toolbox of functionalities that map stimuli onto frequency-dependent changes in impedance, and indicate how these functions can be used for novel computation schemes

The main research activities of the job are:

  • Fabrication, electrical characterisation and modelling of memristors and threshold switching devices
  • Collaboration with the broader group to better understand underpinning physical mechanisms governing device operation
  • Design and simulation of memristor-based circuits exploiting complex impedance.

The post is available from 1st February 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter until 30th July 2024 in the first instance. Further funding to support the post may be available.

About you

Applicants should have a PhD degree (or about to submit) in Physics, Materials Science, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or a related field. Experience of conducting electrical characterisation is essential, as are skills in DC electrical measurements. Experience of advanced semiconductor device fabrication in a cleanroom environment is desirable, as are skills in device fabrication and device structural/chemical characterisation.

If the successful candidate has not yet been awarded their PhD, appointment will be made as a Research Assistant (Grade 6B). Payment at Grade 7 will be backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis including corrections, once the PhD has been awarded. The salary scale for Research Assistant (Grade 6B), point 25-27 is £34,502 - £36,348 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.
