The mission of the WISCAD lab is to develop computer-aided design tools for Integrated Circuits (ICs). Our goal is to address the challenges of future IC generations such as support for advanced manufacturing techniques, emerging devices, new packaging technologies, secure IC design, and develop techniques to improve the validation and debug of ICs post-fabrication. We are also interested in Design Automation for other domains beyond Integrated Circuits. WISCAD lab is led by Prof. Azadeh Davoodi.

Open position: Research in Electronic Design Automation can benefits from knowledge of nano-scale IC design challenges, various algorithmic and optimization techniques, and efficient software programming. The problems can lie anywhere within the two boundaries of purely CS to purely EE. Looking to hire one new PhD student starting Spring or Fall 2017. Desired skills are efficiency in C/C++ and familiarity with STL and Boost libraries, operating systems, algorithms and data structures. If interested, please email your CV highlighting your expertise and related projects to Prof. Davoodi. Please include your GRE score (include analytical writing score) and undergradaute GPA.
