This postdoc position focuses on ambient light energy harvesting for low-power embedded systems. Ambient light energy harvesting is an attractive solution as light is commonplace in many IoT applications. Moreover, the cost of small photovoltaic panels is relatively low, which enables the design of self-powered systems at low cost. However, it is challenging to design such systems as the available energy is limited and depends on the ambient light conditions the system is placed in. Research on energy-neutral sensing systems and/or intermittent sensing systems is therefore still required. Particularly, novel methods for the systematic design of such systems will be a research track to be investigated as part of this position.

As a postdoc in the Autonomous Sensor Systems group, you will be a vital part of the research group, collaborating with PhD students, other postdocs and senior researchers. You are expected to participate to the group’s research work and to bring forward own ideas in the development of the research agenda. You are also expected to contribute to the publication and communication of research results. The research group, in turn, will provide a forum for discussion, supervision and assistance during your studies, supporting your research and career development. You will be part of a leading group in the field of low-power sensing systems and be able to exploit the groups large international network.


To be eligible for a post-doctoral appointment, your qualifications must match the requirements described in Mid Sweden University’s employment procedures.  To be eligible for this position, you should hold a PhD degree in electrical engineering, electronics engineering, computer engineering, or a similar subject.
