The Advanced RF Technologies (ART) Group at Tyndall National Institute (TNI) and University College Cork is advertising for the position of the Post-Doctoral Researcher/Senior Post-Doctoral Researcher/Scientist in RF acoustic MEMS/PiezoMEMS for well-qualified and highly-motivated researchers with experience and strong interest in MEMS/piezo MEMS acoustic resonators/filters (e.g, SAW, BAW, FBAR or similar) and heterogeneous integration of PiezoMEMS with integrated passive devices (IPDs). The post holder will be employed as the lead researcher of an interdisciplinary and ambitions project in collaboration with the PiezoMEMS group at Tyndall and will develop highly-reconfigurable RF filters and front-end components for the next generation of 5G communication systems. The project will use as a basis Tyndall’s in-house piezoMEMS microfabrication platform. The postholder will require competences in piezoMEMS/acoustic resonators/filters, multi-physics and electromagnetic design, microfabrication techniques and RF characterization. Furthermore, the postholder is expected to perform some fabrication work in the process and cleanroom facility of Tyndall National Institute and supervise PhD students on a day-to-day-basis.
The candidate will be given an initial 18 months contract with scope for extension to 36 months subject to performance and availability of funds.
The successful candidate will become a member of a diverse and vibrant community of academics, research professionals and students at TNI and UCC and will have access to world-class, microfabrication, mechanical testing, and RF characterization facilities at TNI, UCC.
