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 (Design-for-)Test Methodology Researcher.
You work in a team of about ten people but share and provide your expertise to the entire Advanced Reliability Robustness & Testing (AR²T) department, working with not only with researchers and scientists, but also hardware engineers, device and process experts.
As a researcher, you will be responsible for conceiving and developing (design-for-)test methodologies adapted to new technologies for device integration and chip manufacturing. 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 cleanrooms or at external fabs, 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 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 will determine 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.
