A PhD position is available in the area of thin film transistor based
electronic skin. This PhD candidate will investigate silicon based
nano/microstructures to develop thin film transistors based wearable
electronic and sensing components (e.g. tactile sensors) on ultra-flexible
substrates. Realizing electronics and sensing components on flexible
substrates requires multidisciplinary efforts. Therefore, candidate should
have multidisciplinary research interests in areas like electronic devices
and sensors, and medical robotics. Knowledge of fabrication technology is

This position is part of the doctoral school on Information and
communication technology of University of Trento, Italy. The position is
funded by Fondazione Bruno Kessler (www.fbk.eu) Trento, Italy and research
will be performed at Centre for Materials and Microsystems of Fondazione
Bruno Kessler. Resources at FBK include a microfabrication facility (500 mq,
class 10 Clean Room) as well as the related design, modelling and testing
capabilities, allowing in-house development of a variety of micron-size
devices ranging from silicon integrated microsensors, biosensors and BioMEMS
to custom designed ASIC-CMOS.
