Combine advanced R&D, project execution and partner interface

EU / Funded Project technical Coordinator Semiconductor Technologies 

What you will do

Your work is at the cross-roads of advanced R&D, project execution and partner interface with a special focus on public funded projects (EU, Flemish government, etc.). You will be responsible to coordinate large consortia for projects focusing on silicon technology development in a variety of subjects such as Advanced Logic devices, Novel Memory devices, 3D packaging or Silicon Photonics, leveraging imec’s core expertise on advanced semiconductor research. You will be responsible for multiple projects as the coordinator of imec-owned tasks and in certain cases you will endorse the role of the consortium coordinator. You will be the primary imec technical representative in consortia (which could include universities, research institutes and industry partners) and you will also interface with the imec technical managers to ensure proper execution of the projects with respect to content, budget and timeline. You will also interface with imec partners to help the execution of the transversal projects. 

In this job, your main tasks will be: 

  • As project coordinator, you will be responsible to establish the schedule of meetings with the consortium and with the reviewers, you will ensure that each project partner is progressing towards the deliverables and milestones plan, and you will be the primary project interface with the public entity representative (project officer). 
  • You will ensure the proper completion of deliverables by maintaining a clear list of the deliverable owners and timeline according to the project work description and schedule. This will be achieved in agreement with the technical managers.  
  • You will coordinate the participation of imec experts to project meetings and the proper execution of the related tasks, leveraging your technical and management skills. 
  • You will ensure that participation of imec staff in the projects is appropriately booked in imec’s time monitoring system and accurately reported for every project. 
  • You will ensure that all costs, consumables, and wafer fabrication, are correctly booked in imec’s system for every project. 
  • You will interface with the financial department to review financial reports and defend the report within the consortium and towards the project officer.  
    You will report internally the progress towards the project objectives to senior management, with respect to success criteria, timeline and budget. You will escalate what you cannot resolve with your peers. In case the project timeline, content, or budget cannot be met, you will negotiate changes within the consortium.
