Research Associate (m/f/d) Reliability of high temperature electronics

The team “Microelectronic Packaging” performs applied and fundamental research to develop reliable electronic microsystems, which fulfil criteria of robust manufacturability, long lifetime and are designed for sustainability. Due to the usage of wide bandgap semiconductors the operating temperature of the semiconductor can be increased. Today, many electronic systems have to operate at high temperatures. However, high temperature challenges the reliability of the electronic system. In the project a LED lighting module will be developed which targets applications with very high ambient temperatures. Reliability and lifetime of the module will be analysed and optimized to meet requirement of 100.000h test systems for lifetime assessment will be developed and set-up. In addition, methods will be developed to predict the lifetime and failure modes within accelerated and combined lifetime testing. In the field of failure mode analysis, lifetime prediction a PhD thesis can be linked to the project.

Your tasks

  • Technology and concept analysis for advanced lighting and power electronic systems  
  • Development of test concepts and test equipment
  • Selection of appropriate accelerated test methods and equipment
  • Combination of test methods and equipment for realizing comprehensive test procedures (electric and optical tests)
  • Implementation of improvements of test systems and development of accelerated combined test methods
  • Hardware modification and realization of software for test systems
  • Execution and data analysis of extensive test runs
  • Failure and lifetime analysis
  • Application of physical, statistical and data driven models for lifetime prognostics for electronic systems

Your profile

  • Master’s degree in electrical engineering, physics, microsystem technology, mechatronics, mechanical engineering, information technologies or similar subjects 
  • Mandatory are experiences and pleasure in the field of electronic hardware design and test equipment programming (ideally C++, Python)
  • Experience in material science, failure analysis or finite element simulations would be beneficial but not mandatory
  • Self-driven, creative, ambitious, proactive, team orientated

What we offer

  • A dynamic environment with flat hierarchies and a vast variety of tasks
  • The technical equipment of one of Germany’s leading research Universities of Applied Science
  • Team work, a friendly working atmosphere and various opportunities for interaction with colleagues and superiors 
  • Flexible working hours and the opportunity for telework
  • Attractive continued education and advanced training offers

The contract is limited to two years and the weekly working time as salaried member of staff is 40 hours and 10 minutes. All job vacancies advertised are suitable for part-time employment as long as a proper fulfillment of the tasks is guaranteed throughout the day. Remuneration will be paid in accordance with remuneration group 13 TV-L. Severely disabled applicants are given preferential consideration in the event of equal qualification. The Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt is striven to increase the amount of employed women and is therefore particularly welcoming applications from women (Article 7(3) BayGIG).

Please submit your application by 14th of August 2020 using the button “online application” and upload all the documents and certificates requested. Applications sent to us by mail or e-mail won’t be considered.
