Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Faculty IV - Institute of Computer Engineering and Microelectronics / Mixed Signal Circuit Design

Research Assistant - salary grade E13 TV-L Berliner Hochschulen

part-time employment may be possible

The Chair of Mixed Signal Circuit Design at Technische Universität Berlin is looking for an innovate research scientist who is interested in performing research in the field of ultra-high speed CMOS circuit design for future wireless communication systems. We are looking for candidates holding a Master’s degree (or equivalent), who can think out of the box, and who strive for a PhD degree in a sophisticated research area.
The position is part of our project "Next-Gen IVN Automotive Ethernet PHY IC Research with 25Gbit/s" with Huawei, our partner in industry.

in the field of high-speed analog & mixed-signal IC design

Research topics of our Chair are largely centered around the design of innovative ultra-low-power and high-speed analog & mixed signal circuits and systems. Of particular interests are high-speed CMOS data conversion techniques up to 14GS/s and clock generation systems with an emphasis on energy efficiency as well as silicon area / cost reduction, mixed signal error- and mismatch estimation algorithms, (self)-adaptive calibration techniques as well as highly scalable DSP-based design techniques implemented in standard CMOS processes.

Working field:

  • Self-driven research in the field of integrated high-speed CMOS ADC design for future wireless communication systems
  • Implement and characterize your implemented high-speed CMOS ADC towards 14GS/s using the newest laboratory equipment
  • Publish the research results nationally and internationally


  • Successfully completed university degree (Master, Diplom or equivalent) in Electrical Engineering or Physics
  • Expertise in the field of analog circuit design, Deep sub-nm CMOS technology
  • Expertise in the field of high-speed CMOS design and data converters is a plus
  • Expertise in the design flow covering schematic design, simulation and layout
  • Expertise in ADCs, such as CT incremental sigma-delta ADC
  • Expertise in Design of all-digital fractional-n PLLs
  • Background in signal processing and communication theory is a plus
  • Enthusiastic, energetic, and team-oriented personality
  • Self-driven with good communication skills in German and English

We offer:
  • Challenging research project with Huawei
  • Close collaboration with other research facilities and industry, in particular Intel, Infineon, R&S and others
  • Internationally renowned and motivated team
  • Our institute is located in the heart of Germany’s capital Berlin - not far from the Brandenburg Gate
