Management | Scholarship for Nigerians and Africans - Part 2

The Muljibhai Madhvani Foundation Scholarship Programme 2011–2012, Uganda: Agriculture, Biology, Business Administration, Chemistry, Commerce, Engineering, Food Science & Technology, Information Technology, Law, Hotel Management, Pharmacy, Nursing, Architecture, Veterinary Medicine, Actuarial Science, Environmental Studies and Human Medicine.

The Muljibhai Madhvani Foundation is a Charitable Trust which was set up with the primary objective of promoting scientific
and technical education for the betterment of the people of Uganda.
It is in pursuit of this objective that the Board of Trustees of the Foundation set up a Scholarship Committee and instituted a University scholarship programme starting in the 2003/4 academic year. The scholarship programme is aimed at benefiting Ugandans pursuing either undergraduate or post-graduate education at University level in Uganda.

PhD Position – Thermal Effects in 3D Integrated Circuits, France

The fellowship will be grated throughout the duration of the work, which will take place in a highly dynamic and international field in Grenoble (France).
The high requirements on today’s mobile systems push them beyond the limit of a simple communication tool, and make them reminiscent of a
global assistance terminal that includes entertainment, office and general services. This translates into a continuous increase in terms
of required computational performance. The scaling ability of complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) technology offers one
possible way to increase the system performance. However, it comes with a high cost in terms of fabrication complexity and power
efficiency. Another alternative that addresses these hurdles consists of vertically staking electronic chips on top of each other using
vertical connections (Fig. 1) called the through-silicon vias (TSV), thus increasing the computational performance, while using the same
system footprint.

Key competences:

– Knowledge in the field of classical thermal physics
– Understanding of solid-state physics and MOS transistors
– Ability to carry out physical modelling and numerical simulations
using a finite element simulator
– Ability to carry out electrical test and characterization and to
develop automated data input and processing tools
– Basic understanding of CMOS circuits and logic systems
– Ability to design basic logic circuits or ability to develop this competence
– Required team work within the frame of numerous collaborations with the involved teams
– Excellent time management skills
– Creativity, self-motivation, personal engagement
– Very good academic grade
