Applications are invited for a full-time Research Associate/Fellow position within the Power Electronics Machines and Control research group.

The successful candidate will support two new research projects developing reliability and lifetime models for power electronic components. This could include models for electronic packaging (e.g. interconnects such as wirebonds and solder joints), or for internal semiconductor failure modes (e.g. gate oxide degradation in MOS devices).

Candidates should hold an BEng, MEng or equivalent degree in electrical/electronic, mechanical or materials engineering or a related discipline and holds or is about to obtain a PhD in an appropriate field.

Candidates should also have the ability to work independently within a multidisciplinary research team and have excellent communication and presentation skills.

 Technical skills, knowledge and skills in the following areas are essential:

  • Knowledge of the fundamental physics underpinning failure in electronic components, and the typical failure mechanisms in electronic components.
  • General electronic laboratory practical skills required for experimental characterisation of electronic components.
  • The ability to develop computer models from experimental results using industry standard tools such as MATLAB/Simulink.

This post is available on a fixed term basis for 2 years. Hours of work are full time (36.25 hours). Job share arrangements may be considered.
