Image sensors have been used widely in our daily life. In this project, we will develop a low-power image sensor for IoT applications. Two key aspects are critical for this application: low power and local data processing. While the first requirement is very straightforward, the second requirement can be easily more demanding since the image data must be sent out wirelessly in most IoT systems over long distances. To filter out the useful data locally in a smart way, such that the IoT node doesn’t need to spend a lot of power to transmit the data can save significant power. Eventually, the imaging system will be integrated with an energy harvester developed in a parallel project and a Lora module developed from our industrial partner for remote environment monitoring.
The candidate should have very good analog integrated circuit design background.
Basic knowledge of data processing and its digital implementation is highly appreciated
The candidate should be highly self-motivated.
The candidate should be a team player.
The candidate needs to have good experience with IC design software Cadence Spectre. Tapeout experience is highly appreciated, although not a must.
If you feel this role would be a perfect match, but you cannot yet tick all the boxes, we’d still really like to get to know you, as you can learn and grow on the job!
We make our selection based on the following general requirements:
Your resume should contain contact information of prior advisors/supervisors who can provide feedback.
*competitive applications without an MSc might be considered upon extra review[insert

Challenge. Change. Impact!
The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) brings together three scientific disciplines. Combined, they reinforce each other and are the driving force behind the technology we all use in our daily lives. Technology such as the electricity grid, which our faculty is helping to make completely sustainable and future-proof. At the same time, we are developing the chips and sensors of the future, whilst also setting the foundations for the software technologies to run on this new generation of equipment – which of course includes AI. Meanwhile we are pushing the limits of applied mathematics, for example mapping out disease processes using single cell data, and using mathematics to simulate gigantic ash plumes after a volcanic eruption. In other words: there is plenty of room at the faculty for ground-breaking research. We educate innovative engineers and have excellent labs and facilities that underline our strong international position. In total, more than 1000 employees and 4,000 students work and study in this innovative environment.
