Postdoc position and PhD-student position

THz electronics
Technische Unversität Wien
Closing Date


Postdoc position:

A full-time position is foreseen to become available as from January 1st, 2018 or later for a period of approximately 5 year, B1 salary group. The minimum salary is 3626.60 € per month (x 14 per year). The official announcement will be published later on here:

Requirements: PhD in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Physics or similar discipline. The focus of the position is on research into THz resonant-tunnelling diodes and development of THz oscillators on their basis. Investigation of other types of THz sources, detectors and systems could be also addressed at a later stage. Therefore deep knowledge in THz/microwave electronics or optoelectronics and extensive experience in micro- and nano-fabrication technology of III-V devices are required. Additionally, experience in THz measurement techniques and electromagnetic simulations are desirable. Knowledge of German is an advantage.

PhD-student position:

A full-time position as from January-February 2018 for a period of 3 year. Exact salary will be confirmed upon appointment [Living Allowance = 37 320 euro/year (correction factor to be applied per country) + Monthly mobility allowance depending on the family situation].

Requirements: MSc in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Physics or similar discipline. The focus of the position is on research into travelling-wave microstrip resonant-tunnelling-diode oscillators for sub-THz frequencies. Therefore deep basic knowledge in high-frequency electrical engineering or physics of electronic or optoelectronic devices is required. Experience with semiconductor technology, nano/micro-fabrication, THz or high-frequency measurements and electromagnetic simulations would be an advantage.

To apply, please make an initial informal contact with the head of the group (Michael Feiginov michael.feiginov(at) with a copy of your CV and a brief note of your research interests and career ambitions. Following subsequent screening, potential candidates will be advised to make a formal application. The selection process will include a formal interview with the short-listed candidates.
