Research & development - Leuven | More than two weeks ago
After a half-century of continuous
down-scaling of feature sizes and simultaneous up-scaling of transistor counts
and device complexity, consumers of integrated-circuit (IC) technology have
grown accustomed to the benefits of “Moore’s Law” and expect it to continue
going forward. For micro-electronic products, mankind simply feels entitled to
ever higher performance, at lower energy consumption, and certainly at lower
cost. Imec is a world-renowned research organization that develops
state-of-the-art device and system integration technologies. This results in
components with advanced functionalities and form factors which, in turn,
require continuous innovation in test technology and design-for-test
methodology. To drive these activities, we are looking for a Test/Design-for-Test
You work in a team of about ten people but share and provide your expertise to the broader imec community, working with not only with internal researchers and scientists, but also hardware engineers, device and process experts, but also from our customers (‘partners’) and suppliers.
As a researcher, you will contribute to conceiving and developing (design-for-)test methodologies adapted to new technologies for device integration and chip manufacturing, such as 2nm CMOS technologies, 3D chip stacking, and silicon photonics. You will collaborate with top-experts in the field, apply your methodologies to state-of-the-art chip designs that can be manufactured in one of imec’s own cleanrooms or at external fabs, if applicable file for patents, and publish your findings at key conferences and journals. You apply your knowledge in imec’s research programs, as well as in bilateral projects with customers, joint development projects with suppliers, and/or multi-party EU-funded projects.
We offer you the opportunity to join one of the world’s premier research centers in nanotechnology at its headquarters in Leuven, Belgium. With your talent, passion and expertise, you’ll become part of a team that makes the impossible possible. Together, we shape the technology that determines the society of tomorrow.
We are committed to being an inclusive employer and proud of our open, multicultural, and informal working environment with ample possibilities to take initiative and show responsibility. We commit to supporting and guiding you in this process; not only with words but also with tangible actions. Through imec.academy, 'our corporate university', we actively invest in your development to further your technical and personal growth.
We are aware that your valuable contribution makes imec a top player in its field. Your energy and commitment are therefore appreciated by means of a market appropriate salary with many fringe benefits.
