Job Description

Basic Purpose:

The X-ray Science Division at Argonne National Laboratory’s Advanced Photon Source invites applications for postdoctoral researcher to join the Detectors Group. We are developing next-generation pixel array detectors for X-ray science. In particular, we are developing detectors for high-throughput X-ray ptychography for mapping mouse brain neural connections and integrated circuit inspection at the nanoscale. X-rays are unique in the electromagnetic spectrum in providing the potential for nanoscale resolution imaging of centimeter-sized objects. The successful candidate will conduct cutting-edge research in both mixed-signal and digital ASIC designs and play a key role in an ASIC design team with collaborators in the US and Europe. 

Required

  • Must have a Doctorate Degree
  • Experience with mixed-signal ASIC designs.
  • Knowledge of digital logic designs using Verilog and/or System Verilog
  • Knowledge of VLSI mixed-signal ASIC design tools (CAD/EDA) and methodologies
  • Knowledge of front-end and back-end ASIC design elements, such as layout, physical verification, and design verification
  • Experience with building analog or digital test-benches and carry-out mixed analog and digital circuit simulations
  • Exceptional communication skills, ability to communicate effectively with internal and external collaborators and ability to work in team environment.

Preferred: 

  • Experience with digital encoding methods for compression (e.g., run-length) and serial links (e.g., Aurora)
  • Advanced digital verification techniques using System Verilog and UVM methodologies
  • Experience with FPGA designs
  • Experience with high level hardware design languages (e.g., Chisel)
  • Experience with machine learning methods (e.g., neural networks)
  • Experience with analog ASIC designs
  • Familiar with modern software development environments (e.g., revision control system)
  • Knowledge of readout integrated circuits for radiation sensors, including signal processing, signal filtering, signal conversion, data transmission, high speed electronics
