Message from an associate professor at Northeastern University with an anticipated research assistantship position opening for a student who is interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in the area of analog/RF integrated circuit design. 

The expected opening is in the Analog & Mixed-Signal Integrated Circuit (AMSIC) Research Laboratory (http://www.ece.neu.edu/~monabajo), and it includes the standard stipend and tuition coverage for the Ph.D. program at Northeastern University. It will be associated with a new sponsored research project involving the design of low-power analog/radio frequency integrated circuits optimized through real-time machine learning methods. A start at the beginning of the spring 2023 semester (Jan. 9, 2023) is preferred, but a start at the beginning of summer 2023 (May 1) or fall 2023 semester (first week of Sept.) might be possible depending on upcoming developments/circumstances. Students who are interested in the opportunity are welcome to email me their resumes and unofficial PDF transcripts directly at monabajo@ece.neu.edu.

An ideal candidate would have the following qualifications:

  • M.S. degree completion in 2022 (possibly spring 2023)
  • Research or industrial work experience related to analog/RF CMOS circuit design, or chip tape-out and testing experience from the M.S. thesis research project
  • System-level RF transceiver design knowledge
  • Competence in Cadence simulation and layout tools
  • Familiarity with analog/RF measurement equipment (network analyzer, spectrum analyzer, etc.)
  • PCB design and assembly experience
  • Peer-reviewed conference and journal publications are a plus
  • Excellent teamwork and communication skills

Regards and thanks,
