Autonomous driving will be a key capability for future vehicles. However, AD cars require fundamental changes in the vehicle technologies with respect to connectivity, computational power, and safety. The general objective of the HiPer project is to develop the concept of an automotive grade (Level 5) High Performance Vehicle Computer (HPVC) system in a passenger car. The project aims at innovations along 3 paths: (i) Advanced thermal management, (ii) High speed communication and (iii) Integration for robust and reliable systems.
As part of Hiper project, this PhD research project aims at developing new and reliable packaging with novel thermal solution for HPVC. This work is intrinsically interdisciplinary, and the candidate will be involved in collaboration with both industrial and academic partners from several EU countries, in new packging concept development and prototyping, multi-physics simulations, design for reliability, etc. The work will be mainly conducted at the ECTM group (ectm.tudelft.nl/), including EKL cleanroom, and supported by experienced researchers and technicians.
We are seeking highly motivated candidates who are interested in joining our multi-disciplinary research team to conduct this university-company collaboration project, aiming to develop new packaging technology for autonomous driving. The specific desired background is experience on a subject related to this project and a MSc degree on Electronics, Mechanics, Materials science or a related area. We are looking for canndidates with great passion on research, strong drive for scientific excellency, self propelling, and great communication skills. The scientific qualities of the candidate should be demonstrated by an excellent MSc grades and publications.
