Research & development - Eindhoven | More than two weeks ago
Imec Netherlands has established a world-leading track record on the design of novel sensors for human health applications and ultra-low-power IoT devices in general. For instance, our teams continue to develop innovations in implantable therapeutics, medical/wearable devices, environmental monitoring, accurate localization, and many other fields. At our HQ in Leuven, Belgium we are world-renowned for pioneering new process technologies in collaboration with industrial foundries and with the broader semiconductor ecosystem. Imec’s research tracks enable unique opportunities for end-to-end innovations.
The IC-design team in imec Netherlands develops innovative solutions for the Life Science and Medical Device domain and on the other hand for massive and heterogeneous sensor networks to connect billions of devices within the internet of things (IoT). We have built various ultra-low-power (ULP) radio ICs like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth-LE, and a UWB 6-10 GHz radio tuned towards precise ranging and localization (~6 cm). Besides, we deliver our designs to customers, patent the different inventions, and publish our results in renowned conferences and papers (ISSCC, RFIC, DATE, JSSC, etc.). In this position, you will take the lead in a multi-disciplinary team to make our solutions smarter by adding complex digital control and neuromorphic circuits, use RF circuits for sensing solutions, and Neuromorphic systems for IoT and medical/ implantable applications.
You take part in the development of the next generation solutions focusing on developing innovative prototypes for Health, Edge and IoT applications, using complex digital / neural network algorithms and combining the achievements from imec technology research (IC’s and sensors) with state-of-art components. Apart from designing embedded prototypes, you conduct research and development in new (neural network) architectures in close collaboration with the IC design team. You will demonstrate these new designs and concepts in compelling demonstrators. Your responsibilities include:
As a Neuromorphic
Researcher at imec the Netherlands you get the chance to scale future computing
beyond what is possible with silicon CMOS. In collaboration with your
colleagues, you will work on a number of challenges to the design of efficient
brain-like chips: scalable, energy-efficient, highly flexible network
architectures that can learn with incredible efficiency.
Imec The Netherlands, as an employer of choice, offers you an attractive compensation and benefits package including a 100% employer-paid pension plan and flexible working hours. Furthermore, imec-NL offers a wide range of training possibilities. For international candidates, we provide support in the relocation process.
