Internship | Superconducting Circuit Design For Military Applications
WHAT WILL BE YOUR ROLE? At TNO we are developing the capability to design superconducting circuits for military applications. The design flow for such circuits involve amongst others circuit characterization, optimization, margin and yield analysis, layout generation, and verification. Automation of these processes is highly desired. You will be working within a small team to further develop this circuit design flow for superconducting electronics, focusing on the layout generation, verification and extraction.
You will perform this assignment in the Department of Radar Technology. We are a passionate and creative group of professionals (60 people) dedicated to the specification, development and evaluation of innovative, high-performance MMICs, miniaturised and integrated RF subsystems, antennas and front-ends, and signal processing algorithms. The department is at the heart of novel, game-changing radar system and signal processing concepts for the military, space and civil domains.
WHAT WE EXPECT FROM YOU You are in the final stages of your degree in physics, electrical engineering, or a similar degree with some background in quantum mechanics or circuit design. You have experience with programming in Python, you are pragmatic and focused on making things work. Some experience with C++ or collaborative coding is a plus. Apart from technical skills we value communication skills and a results-driven attitude.
WHAT YOU’LL GET IN RETURN You want to work on the precursor of your career; an internship gives you an opportunity to take a good look at your prospective future employer. TNO goes a step further. It’s not just looking that interests us; you and your knowledge are essential to our innovation. That’s why we attach a great deal of value to your personal and professional development. You will, of course, be properly supervised during your internship and be given the scope for you to get the best out of yourself. Naturally, we provide suitable internship compensation.
