OFFER DESCRIPTION

Purpose of the Role:
The successful candidate will work at the design, prototype development, testing and engineering of advanced inverter and dc-dc converter topologies and relative control, intended primarily for use in e- transport applications. Novel wide-band-gap semiconductor technology (silicon carbide, SiC; gallium nitride, GaN) will be used to develop solutions which advance the state-of-the-art in efficiency and power density; the magnetic components and controllers design and realization will need to be compatible with the high switching frequency operation of the power cell. She/he will have a leading and independent role in setting up the test benches required for experimental validation, as well as in the active participation in project meetings and technical reporting. The activity is likely to generate high impact research outputs, which the researcher is expected to disseminate with publications in major international specialist journals and presentations at selected international specialist conferences.
