Open Positions

Eyes High PDF Position in CMOS THz IC Design

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow position in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Calgary under the supervision of Dr. Belostotski. This position is sponsored by the University Eyes High’s rising stars strategy ( and targets candidates of the highest caliber with track records that would be competitive for prestigious national or international fellowships.

The successful candidate will perform research in the area of CMOS THz receiver circuit design design and optimization with focus on:

- The proposal of new front-end receiver architectures and circuits to implement systems operating at frequencies up to 500GHz;

- Fabrication of the THz system in CMOS in either 28nm, 45nm or 65nm technology nodes;

- Experimental validation of these system.

The ideal candidate is required to possess a Ph.D. degree and have a strong practical background in the THz and Microwave IC design. He/She is expected to have practical knowledge of CAD design and simulation tools (Cadence and ADS) and RF measurement instruments. He/she will have access to a wide range of state-of-the-art measurement and fabrication facilities located in the University of Calgary. The selected candidate will undergo a professional development program in which he/she will be expected to give lectures to graduate students, and be the team leader of the research group working on the above mentioned research area. He/she will be expected to participate in campus‐wide programs of professional development for post‐doctoral fellows.

The position is open till September 30, 2014 or until a suitable candidate is identified. The anticipated appointment is for a period of two years starting before the end of 2014.
