The IM2NP Memories team from Aix-Marseille University conducts cutting-edge research in characterization, modeling and design of Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) solutions.
Description: We offer a 36 months PhD position in the field of resistive memory circuit design to achieve binary neural network hardware accelerator. The candidate will contribute to design the full system based on emerging memory circuit using in-memory computing approach together with digital control and communication. The main outcome of the project will be a full hybrid memory design, ready for tape-out and demonstrator test/measurement after manufacturing to assess performances as well as configurability. In this context, the candidate will have to study and propose various in-memory computing approaches suitable for hybrid memory architecture and to benchmark these solutions versus state of the art. Following, this preliminary study, the candidate will have to fully designed a demonstrator. The candidate will be located in the IM2NP - Memories team lab at Aix-Marseille University and will work in close collaboration with CEA-Leti (Grenoble – France) and C2N laboratory (Paris – France) in the framework of the NEURONIC project funded by ANR. Preliminary results have been published in IEDM 2018 (see 10.1109/IEDM.2018.8614639)
Qualifications: By the starting date (1st october 2019), the applicant should have a M.S. degree in Electronics Engineering, Electrical Engineering or Computer Science. Solid knowledge in the area of circuit design is necessary. Any experience in resistive memory and/or neural network is a plus.
Application: A complete application should include a cover letter (max 1 page), a complete C.V., at least two persons willing to act as references, copies of degree certificates, including documentation of completed academic courses and obtained grades. All documents should be in English (or French).
Language: English is mandatory, French is a plus but not mandatory.
