Research Fellow – Integrated Circuit for in-memory Computing

Context and Mission

Learning from big data is the next big thing for a wide range of fields, including communications, industry, business, and healthcare. The von Neumann computer architecture is however not efficient for these tasks, due to the large energy and time needed for data movement between the memory and the CPU/GPU. In the frame of an ERC project, we are developing in-memory computing accelerators for machine learning and data analytics, to process information within analogue memory circuits. Our technology enables one-shot learning with a 10,000x reduction of energy and time thanks to non-iterative computing in cross-point arrays of memories and memristors.

The project

This project aims at demonstrating the outstanding performance of in-memory computation by (i) designing integrated circuits with foundry design kit including resistive memory, (ii) testing the hardware circuits fabricated by the industrial partner foundry. The fellow researcher should interact with a team of about 15 PhDs/postdocs working on in-memory computing using resistive switching memory (RRAM) and phase change memory (PCM).

Your tasks

To design integrated in-memory accelerator circuits

To design the testing board and test the circuit prototypes for practical data problems

To explore the potential applications of the new scheme in data science, industry 4.0, health care etc.

To actively interact with the team members for device and theory development

To become actively involved in the dissemination/communication activities within the project

To mentor junior staff


PhD in electrical engineering


The job position will be at Politecnico di Milano within the EE, CS and Bioengineering Department. The campus offers a clean room facility and a startup incubator. The amount of the temporary research fellowship, paid as deferred monthly instalments is euros 27091,68.

Politecnico di Milano is a leading academic institution in Europe. It was founded in 1863, and is the largest school of architecture, design and engineering in Italy. According to the 2017-2018 QS World University Ranking, Politecnico di Milano ranks first in Italy in 9 research areas: Architecture & Built Environment; Art & Design; Computer Science & Information Systems; Civil & Structural Engineering; Electrical & Electronic Engineering; Mechanical, Aeronautical & Manufacturing Engineering; Environmental Sciences; Materials Science; Mathematics.

Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingengeria (DEIB) is one of the largest ICT departments in Europe. With nearly 1000 members, researchers, collaborators, PhD students, technical and administrative staff, DEIB is a vital institution capable of promoting education, fundamental and applied research, and technology transfer to companies. Research is the main focus of DEIB, pursued according to the highest international quality standards. The department hosts consolidated competences in systems and control, computer science and engineering, electronics, telecommunications, bioengineering and electrical engineering. In these fields, DEIB runs advanced research programs mostly in the frame of EU founded projects, with 4 ERC projects awarded in the last 10 years. The research environment of DEIB also includes the industrial consortium CEFRIEL and several university spinoffs.
