Postdoctoral positionon MOCVD growth of GaN for power electronics

WorkplaceLausanne, Lake Geneva region, Switzerland

EPFL, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, is one of the most dynamic university campuses in Europe and ranks among the top 20 universities worldwide. The EPFL employs more than 6,000 people supporting the three main missions of the institutions: education, research and innovation. The EPFL campus offers an exceptional working environment at the heart of a community of more than 16,000 people, including over 12,000 students and 4,000 researchers from more than 120 different countries.

Your mission :
We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to work on the MOCVD growth of new electronic devices based on III-Nitride semiconductors (GaN, AlGaN, AlN, etc.) for power electronics applications. The successful candidate will join the laboratory of Professor Elison Matioli, and will focus on the growth, simulation, and characterization of III-Nitride materials.

The ultimate goal is to investigate novel heterostructures to demonstrate new and much more efficient electronic devices. The candidate will have the opportunity of doing high-level research in a top-ranked engineering school, working closely with a new assistant professor as well as getting experience in building a laboratory from the very beginning.

Your profile :
The ideal candidate should have solid experience on III-Nitride growth by MOCVD and materials characterization, to take advantage of the nice growth and characterization facilities existing at EPFL. In addition, the ideal candidate should have experience with device simulation and a strong interest in electronic devices for power applications. Experience with electronic device fabrication in cleanroom environment is very welcome. Candidates must hold PhD degree (or anticipate a PhD degree prior to starting the postdoc), have a strong publication record and be very motivated to pursue high-level scientific research.

We offer :

  • EPFL provides state-of-the-art facilities and is one of the leading technical universities worldwide
  • An interdisciplinary and international working environment

Start date :
July 1st, 2021

Term of employment :
