The Carinthia University of Applied Sciences sets high academic standards in an excellent environment in Southern
Austria where education, culture and technology are optimally combined. We ensure modern and application-ori-
ented degree programs in the fields of Engineering, Management, Health Science and Social Work at superbly
equipped FH-sites, with excellent teaching and research staff complemented by part-time lecturers from industry
and international guest lecturers. Further Information you can find on our website: www.fh-kaernten.at/en.
In the competence centre „Carinthia Institute for Microelectronics (CIME)” and the „Josef Ressel Centre for System-
on-Chip Design Automation (SODA)” we are looking for experienced applicants with visibility in academic or industry
for the following position:
Senior Researcher (m/f/d)
in the field of “Mixed-signal SoC and digital design”
tems. CIME is associated to the department of Integrated Systems and Circuits Design (ISCD) with a close network to other depart-
ments within the faculty of Engineering & IT at Carinthia University of Applied Sciences (CUAS).
The research on integrated electronic circuits and systems is a well-established discipline at Carinthia University of Applied Sciences.
For more than 20 years researchers have been working on cooperative research funded by industry and national / European projects
in the field of wireless and wireline communications as well as integrated sensor frontends.
Our aim in the Josef Ressel Centre for System-on-Chip Design Automation is to research fundamentally new methods for the devel-
opment of “system-on-chips” in modern semiconductor technologies and to advance the automation of the development process of
integrated circuits. We are closely collaborating with partners from academia as well as industry in these fields.
Concept and design of digital / mixed-signal integrated circuits in CMOS technologies such as 65nm, 28nm, 16nm,
including research in the areas of
Control-, signal-processing and related interface peripheral design
Processor subsystem designs using e.g. RISC-V architectures
Prototyping using FPGAs from AMD/Xilinx, Intel/Altera, Lattice etc.
High-level modelling of analogue, mixed-signal and digital subblocks
Virtual prototyping and HW/SW codesign using e.g. IEEE1666 (SystemC, SystemC AMS)
Development of lab measurement setup for testchip validation
Research dissemination in publications and standardisation working groups
Acquisition and management of collaborative research projects
Networking with industry and research partners
Supervision and coaching of Master and PhD students
Conducting lectures and labs in Master study program
Education in electronics or others with strong electronics background (like computer engineering or physics)
Several years of experience in design- and/or concept engineering of ICs and/or electronic products
Proficiency in hardware description languages (HDLs) as well as embedded software languages
Experienced in scripting languages like Python, Scala, Tcl/Tk or similar
Extensive knowledge in EDA design tools e.g. from Coseda, Synopsys, Siemens or Cadence
Team player, self-organized, flexible, open minded and keen to try out new things
