Magnetoelectric device engineer postdoctoral fellowship

What You Will Do

Magnetoelectrics are materials that present a coupling between electric and magnetic domains and thus enable the electric field control of magnetism and vice-versa. Magnetoelectric materials are of interest for both logic and memory applications as they are non-volatile and reduce losses from large currents and high voltages. There is a pressing need for identifying and optimizing materials that will enable future magnetoelectric device development in both logic and memory applications.

To strengthen our exploratory magnetoelectric research, Imec is seeking a highly skilled material scientist postdoctoral fellow to advance its activities in the United States. This role involves a vibrant collaboration between the University of Michigan and Imec Belgium, and will be stationed in Ann Arbor, MI, co-located with University of Michigan researchers. The purpose of this collaboration between imec and University of Michigan is the early-stage development of energy-efficient nanoelectronic devices based on magnetoelectric materials and compounds.


As the Successful Candidate:

You will provide experimental support to advance exploratory research on the growth of novel magnetoelectric materials. Your primary focus will be on identifying, developing, and optimizing the growth of novel magnetic materials. You will develop growth recipes using pulsed laser deposition (PLD) techniques and will be expected to characterize the resulting thin films with various advanced techniques. As part of a broader team, you will also be working with others developing lab-scale prototype devices with the materials you develop and own. Your lab research activities will synchronize with Imec teams in the US, Belgium, and University of Michigan, with the outcomes of your research upscaled in Imec's 300 mm clean-room facility in Belgium.


PLD process development will be a joint effort between University of Michigan’s and Imec's semiconductor pilot lines and established labs. You will closely engage with materials scientists, process integration engineers, and device physicists, as well as physicists and chemistry researchers for device development and integration enhancements. Your work will take place in University of Michigan’s facilities and in Imec research labs, collaborating with an international, multidisciplinary team. Regular participation in project and team meetings is expected.


Who You Are

·       Are nearing graduation, or recently graduated, from a Ph.D. program in Materials Science, Physics, or Chemistry, with related research experience.

·       Have experience in the deposition and characterization of magnetic materials and thin films, preferably PLD

·       Knowledgeable in surface preparation and physical characterization of nanoscale thin films.

·       Hands-on experience with advanced lab and clean-room facilities and multiple physical characterization techniques (AFM, SEM, TEM, XRD, Raman,…).

·       Have a working understanding of magnetoelectrics and simple device characterization and data analysis.

·       Self-motivated, independent, innovative, results-driven, yet rigorous, and a team player with a clear focus on delivering outcomes.

·       Strong communication, interpersonal, and organizational skills to bridge research groups and project partners.

·       A strong team player with the ability to collaborate effectively within interdisciplinary teams.

·       Excellent communication skills, fostering seamless interaction with colleagues and partners.

·       Adaptability to an international context and willingness for short and long stays at Imec Belgium.


This opportunity invites you to be part of pioneering research and innovation within an international, diverse, and dynamic environment.
