Square Kilometre Array Radio Telescope-Ultra High Speed ADC Design C Manchester
date2006-10-19 17:01:39 Click No.2378


    Applications are invited for a Research Assistant/Associate to work on the design of ultra high speed Analogue to Digital Converters (4Gs/s) for application to the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) radio telescope. The project is currently at the design and concept proving stage and is being funded in the UK by the Particle Physics and Radio Astronomy Research Council (PPARC) and the European Union.

    The Square Kilometer Array (SKA) represents the future of world radio astronomy. When completed in the second half of the next decade it will be able to scan and map the sky up to a million times faster than is currently possible. The School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, working closely with the Jodrell Bank Observatory in the School of Physics (University of Manchester) and with a number of world class research laboratories in France, Holland and Italy are leading the design and fabrication of ultra high speed, low power ADC for the worlds largest all electronic phased array radio telescope ever conceived.

    The successful applicant will be working on the numerical simulation and optimisation of basic building block of high speed ADC using both Heterojunction Bipolar Transistor (HBT) and pHEMT design approaches in an advanced InP-based technology developed at the University of Manchester. The work will be in close collaboration with other researchers working on integrated circuits fabrication. A good background in IC design using compound semiconductors is required but expertise in mixed -signal CMOS design is likely to be relevant as well. Knowledge of IC design and layout of both analogue and digital circuits would be highly desirable. For this post, the successful candidate must have, or recently submitted, a PhD in a relevant subject.

    This is a very rare opportunity for a dedicated and highly motivated researcher to join this world class project and help shape its future.
