PhD Position on “Radio Frequency (RF) and Mm-Wave Integrated Circuits and Systems” in Zürich

Studierende finden an der ETH Zürich ein Umfeld, das eigenständiges Denken fördert, Forschende ein Klima, das zu Spitzenleistungen inspiriert.


100%, Zurich, fixed-term

The Integrated Devices, Electronics, And Systems (IDEAS) Group of ETH Zurich invites applications for two PhD positions in the field of integrated RF/Mm-Wave circuits and systems for next-generation communication and sensing, such as 5G/6G, Space Electronics, Radar, and Imaging.

These two PhD positions focus on the designs, implementations, and demonstrations of integrated circuit with new circuit topologies and system architectures to advance Radio Frequency (RF), Mm-Wave, and TeraHz integrated electronics.

Potential topics of interest include:

  1. Novel frontend integrated circuits for power amplification, low noise amplification, antenna interfacing, and beamforming
  2. New phased array or MIMO array architectures and operations
  3. Antenna-electronics co-designs
  4. Low-overhead circuits with high accuracy and robustness for built-in-self-testing (BiST)
  5. Compound semiconductor circuit designs and co-integration with silicon circuits
  6. Applying AI/ML methods for (post-silicon) fast reconfiguration of complex circuits/systems or (pre-silicon) rapid design and synthesis of RF/mm-Wave integrated circuits
Project background

The ETH IDEAS Group, led by Prof. Hua Wang, is a world-leading research group in the field of integrated circuits and systems for next-generation wireless communication, sensing, and various emerging technology applications. Our current and past PhD students regularly publish at flagship conferences and journals and have found carrier opportunities both in top universities and industry.

The ETH IDEAS Group is part of the Department of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering (D-ITET). More information can be found on .

These PhD positions are jointly funded by EU grants, Swiss national grants, as well as ETH Zurich internal funding. The research involves close collaborations with industry and university groups in Switzerland, EU, and US.
