Vasilis F. Pavlidis, PhD


I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in the School of Computer Science at the University of Manchester and one of the academics in the Advanced Processor Technologies (APT) group led by Professor Steve Furber. My focus is on emerging technologies for integrated circuits and systems.

I am happy, in general, to discuss ideas for new PhD projects. If you are a motivated, enthusiastic, hard-working student who is also interested in pursuing a PhD degree in our group, please take a look at our research areas and publications on this website and drop me an e-mail with your CV.

PhD opportunities

One NEW PhD project fully funded for UK and European students (partial funding is possible for overseas students) is available. Interested students are advised to apply on-line now and can start immediately. More info about this project can be found here (Trasnceiver circuit design). This project is particularly suited for students who want to become experts in mixed-signal circuit design. Two other projects which are competition funded projects by the Scool of Computer Science, are also available. You can find a description of these projects here (Power Transfer Methods for Inductive 3-D circuits and Hardware Security in 3-D ICs). Feel free to e-mail me should you have any questions regarding these projects.

Post-doc opportunities

If you are interested in any of our reserach areas and you want to enhance your track record, Newton International Fellowships present an excellent funding opportunity. Get in touch with me to discuss whether this is funding scheme suitable for you and how I can potentially support your application (Deadline: March 27, 2018).
Our team just released a new thermal analysis tool for 2-D and 3-D ICs. Give it a try and tell us what you think.
