Research in Electrical Engineering : ambition meets opportunity in Eindhoven
The department has identified three focus areas ('zwaartepunten') in research in Electrical Engineering :
Our nine disciplinary-oriented capacity groups in the department participate in one or more of these focus areas.
This results in the following vacant position :
Assistant Professor in 'Electronic Photonic Integration'
This position will develop new materials, device and circuit architectures to enable and exploit the intimate integration of photonic circuits with electronic circuits.
The focus will be on wafer scale integration methods which are exploitable using regional know-how. Methods will focus on a paradigm shift in the trade-
offs between energy and speed limitations in communications systems.
