FWF-Project: 3D Solution of the Boltzmann Equation on Supercomputers

The Austrian Science Fund (FWF) approved my project proposal entitled "3D Solution of the Boltzmann Equation on Supercomputers". This project will fund my scientific work for three more years, with prospective start in mid 2017. Here is a brief summary of what this project is about. Continue reading

Open PhD position, Computational Microelectronics

I'm happy to announce the following position for a prospective PhD I'm looking forward to collaborating with:

The Institute for Microelectronics (TU Wien) is seeking a highly motivated PhD student to work on deterministic solution approaches for the Boltzmann Transport Equation for semiconductors. To strengthen free open source software in our field, the candidate is expected to contribute to our free open source simulator ViennaSHE and the underlying ecosystem of libraries such as ViennaCL or ViennaGrid. As one of the main application areas of ViennaSHE is the simulation of reliability issues in semiconductor devices, the candidate will also be involved in these activities, providing exposure to industrially relevant research.
