Information for Prospective Postdocs
- To prospective postdocs:
We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher in the area of RF circuits. The term length is 12 months (could be renewable). The salary is negotiable.
- Collaborate on research on RF circuit design and synthesis.
- Influence the progress of relevant research communities by producing high-quality publications.
- Collaborate and increase productivity on projects as a contributing team member.
- Currently has or is in the process of obtaining a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics, or a related field.
- Extensive experience with RF circuit design.
- Track record of publications that demonstrate experience in RF circuit design.
- Experience in collaborating within a team to solve problems.
- Experience in communicating research to public audiences or peers.
- Must obtain work authorization in the United States at the time of hire and maintain ongoing work authorization during employment. Note: We can sponsor an H1B visa which coincides with the duration of the postdoctoral appointment at our lab. The appointment of scholars is a considerable commitment by the faculty sponsor and by the university. We cannot sponsor an H1B visa for a scholar without a commitment of appointment.
- First-author publications at peer-reviewed journals or conferences on the topics of RF circuits.
- Experience in active RF circuit design.
We are particularly interested in independent and self-motivated individuals who work well both individually and as part of a team. If you are interested in this position, please directly email me your latest CV along with the names and contact information of at least two references.
Information for Prospective Students
- To prospective Ph.D. students:
If you are interested in joining my research group, please apply to the ECE Ph.D. program at the University of Idaho and indicate that you are interested in working with the Shih group in your application package. After you receive admission from the department, please send me an email with your CV, research interests, and a short description of your research background (e.g., projects you’ve worked on, relevant classes you’ve taken, software that you are familiar with, your technical skills, etc.). Please include “Prospective Ph.D. Student” in the subject line of your email. I will review your files carefully and consider you for any position that may be open.
Please understand that I will not be able to comment on your chances of getting a position in my research group before you are admitted to the department.
- To prospective undergraduate and MS students:
Undergraduate or MS students who work in my research group for multiple semesters can potentially become authors of professional publications, depending on their contributions towards the project. Successful undergraduate or MS research, however, requires the student to be very hard-working and self-motivated. A time investment of at least two semesters is generally required to enable successful completion of a research project in my group. If you are an undergraduate or MS student in our department and are interested in doing research with me as part of your degree, please email me with your CV, research interests, and a short description of your research related background (e.g., projects you’ve worked on, relevant classes you’ve taken, software that you are familiar with, your technical skills, etc.). Please include “Prospective undergraduate (or MS) Student” in the subject line of your email. If you are thinking about joining my group, you are encouraged to take my courses, especially if you have limited experience in the antenna and RF circuit areas. The projects that I assign in these courses can give you a taste of what it would be like working with me and it will also be a good opportunity to make sure that our interests match.
Information for Prospective Visiting Scholars
- To prospective visiting scholars:
We welcome visiting scholars from all over the world. However, we are hesitant to bring in visiting scholars for less than a year because achieving results in a shorter time frame is very challenging in our research area. Hence, please try to maximize your length of stay. If you are interested in visiting our group for research, please email me your latest CV, a description of your research interests, and the names and contact information of at least three references.
