DTU Electrical Engineering at Technical University of Denmark invites applications for a position as Professor (with special responsibilities) in Analogue and Power IC design.

You will be associated with our Electronics group (ELE) with 35 enthusiastic staff members responsible for analogue, power and mixed-mode integrated circuit (IC) design, switch-mode audio power amplifiers, as well as power electronics research including advanced high efficiency high power density switching mode power supplies and very high frequency (VHF) power supplies. The ELE groups vision is to have Power-Supply-in-Package (PSIP) and Power-Supply-on-Chip (PwrSoC) at much higher power ratings compared to today’s state-of-the-art.

You will have a leading role for building up an internationally recognised research activity within analogue, power and mixed-mode integrated circuits supporting the continuously decreasing size, weight and cost of all types of electronic circuitry enabling an increase of applications and features in many different areas.

Responsibilities and tasks
You will participate in both fundamental and advanced level research-based education of students in cooperation with the scientific staff of the ELE group, and you must contribute actively to the theoretical and experimental research and innovation in our group and in related areas including publishing results in international recognized journals.

For this position, we expect you to play a leading role in research, education and innovation within analogue, power and mixed-mode integrated circuits. Moreover, we expect you to play a leading role in creating networks and joint projects between key scientific staff from the various engineering fields involving analogue, power and mixed-mode integrated circuits.

In addition, you should initiate a network of companies involved in analogue, power and mixed-mode integrated circuits with the purpose of establishing joint projects between the university and companies both domestic and international.

You will be an integrated part of our Electronics Group, and we expect you to contribute actively to the internal collaboration with other groups in the department as well as with groups from other departments.

The professor is expected to participate
in teaching at the BSc, MSc and PhD levels. For international candidates, DTU can provide Danish language courses enabling the candidates to teach in Danish within 2-3 years.

Qualifications
We will favour a candidate who: 

  • has scientific production at international level, research potential, and ability to lead and develop a research team
  • has the ability to promote and utilize research results
  • has experience with innovation activities
  • has the ability to teach at all university levels
  • can document formal didactic training and have experience in development of courses and preferably also educational programs.
  • has an all-round experience basis, including international experience and experience with international research collaborations
  • has a large research network, including active contacts to fabs and foundries
  • has a track record in attracting funding to the research area
  • has visions within the research area
  • is experienced in supervising PhD students
  • is open-minded and team-work oriented to strive for common ambitious goals
  • has a solid knowledge about and experience with analysis and synthesis of all kinds of analogue, power and mixed-mode integrated circuits as well as with various packaging techniques and challenges
Moreover, the candidate who is highly self-motivated, enthusiastic, and has demonstrated the ability to handle many tasks simultaneously will be preferred.

You will be working in our modern and newly renovated premises with state-of-the-art electronics research laboratories and student facilities.

The working atmosphere is informal, international and interdisciplinary and we believe that our goals can be reached through collaboration.

Assessment
In the assessment of the candidates, consideration will be given to: 
  • Documented experience and quality of teaching and curriculum development
  • Research impact and experience, funding track record, and research vision
  • Societal impact
  • Documented innovation activities, including commercialization and collaboration with industry
