Fraun­ho­fer-In­sti­tut für In­te­g­rier­te Schal­tun­gen - Insti­tut­steil Entwicklung Adapt­iver Systeme

Adaptiv­ity is an essen­tial prop­erty for the con­nec­ted world of tomor­row. Intel­li­gent com­pon­ents can inde­pend­ently recog­nize changes in their envir­on­ment or within them­selves, assess them and take appro­pri­ate action. As busi­ness part­ner, Fraunhofer IIS/EAS devel­ops key tech­no­lo­gies for adapt­ive sys­tems and offers innov­at­ive and robust solu­tions.

Design and
Char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion of IC-Test-Struc­tures

Work­ing field:

Within our inter­dis­cip­lin­ary team you will be respons­ible for the design, mod­el­ing, sim­u­la­tion and char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion of IC thermal test struc­tures in advanced tech­no­logy nodes. Thermal effects are increas­ingly import­ant within mod­ern IC tech­no­lo­gies as tran­sistor spa­cing con­tinu­ously decreases. Design­ers need to employ thermal mod­els dur­ing the design pro­cess to avoid reli­ab­il­ity issues e.g. due to elec­tromigra­tion. You will be work­ing within a team that is build­ing thermal mod­els to sim­u­late the tem­per­at­ure dis­tri­bu­tion within an IC. Those mod­els need to be sup­por­ted and val­id­ated by meas­ure­ments on real sil­icon test struc­tures.


  • You are a stu­dent of Elec­trical Engin­eer­ing, Inform­a­tion Tech­no­logy, Phys­ics, Com­puter Sci­ence, or
  • Know­ledge of IC design with Cadence Vir­tu­oso
  • Famil­iar with Linux and com­mand-line script­ing
  • Exper­i­ence with IC char­ac­ter­iz­a­tion (optional)

What we of­fer:

  • Excit­ing inter­dis­cip­lin­ary topic in mod­ern micro­elec­tron­ics
  • Work­ing with innov­at­ive key industry part­ners
  • Open and friendly work atmo­sphere
  • Flex­ible hours to bal­ance your work and study activ­it­ies
  • Free­dom to develop and imple­ment your own ideas and develop your skills

How to ap­ply:

Remu­ner­a­tion accord­ing to the gen­eral works agree­ment for employ­ing assist­ant staff.
In case of identical qual­i­fic­a­tions pref­er­ence will be given to severely dis­abled can­did­ates.
We would like to point out that the chosen job title also includes the third gender.
The Fraunhofer-Gesell­schaft emphas­ises gender-inde­pend­ent pro­fes­sional equal­ity.

Fraunhofer is Europe’s largest applic­a­tion-ori­ented research organ­iz­a­tion. Our research efforts are geared entirely to people’s needs: health, secur­ity, com­mu­nic­a­tion, energy and the envir­on­ment. As a res­ult, the work under­taken by our research­ers and developers has a sig­ni­fic­ant impact on people’s lives. We are cre­at­ive. We shape tech­no­logy. We design products. We improve meth­ods and tech­niques. We open up new vis­tas.
