The Unit of Electrical Engineering at the Faculty of Information Technology and Communication, Tampere University, opens a University lecturer position in microelectronics circuit design. 


Join the cutting-edge world of chip design at Tampere University, located in the vibrant Tampere City within the Pirkanmaa region of Finland. Our esteemed institution aims to enhance the design excellence of chips.  Tampere University was recently granted a six-years Academy of Finland Profiling action “Silicon2Action” combining System-on-Chip, Wireless Communications, and Robotics and System-on-Chip Hub (SoC Hub) was started in 2019 to become one of the top design sites in Europe. The success is based on a three-decade expertise on microelectronics, FPGA, and DSP based multiprocessor system designs in collaboration with industry. 

Recently, Tampere University, Tampere City, and Pirkanmaa region released Chips from Finland initiative leading to strengthening EU’s Chips Act design excellence in the region that has strong business cluster around wireless communications, intelligent machines, and imaging. Nokia designs the most advanced chips in Europe for 5G on the latest IC technology nodes in Finland, and Industry 4.0 companies has big potential for custom chips differentiating and securing the competitiveness. To meet industrial challenges, SoC Hub focuses on large, top quality prototype chips in the smallest geometries and aiming at high technology readiness level TRL6 onwards. SoC Hub created a unique co-working model in which over 70 experts from the university and companies carry out the SoC design daily. The promise of one large SoC per year has been proven with over 130M transistor chips from 2021. We use open source and custom Intellectual Property (IP) blocks and a mixture of open source and commercial EDA tools. 

Join us at Tampere University and be part of an exceptional team which drives innovation, fosters collaboration, and shapes the future of chip design.
