Photonics Design Engineer for Optical Communications

Is it you we're looking for?

Are you a highly motivated researcher who is experienced at developing optical transceivers and working in an R&D environment? Do you aim to work in a diverse research environment amongst some of the top researchers in the world? Are you an excellent communicator who thrives on a multi-disciplinary team? If so, keep reading.

Imec is expanding its R&D activities into the field of optical communications. Using imec’s state-of-the-art 200mm and 300mm silicon technology platform, we point our ambition on new breakthroughs in optical transceivers and ultrahigh-speed modulators. Currently we are looking for a Photonics Design Engineer for Optical Communications.

Here's what you'll do:

  • Take responsibility for the functional and architectural design and lab measurement of photonic integrated circuits.
  • Design state of the art active and passive photonic components for optical transceivers using industrial standard tools, e.g. Lumerical, Ledit, Luceda, Matlab. (e.g. MMIs, grating couplers, ring resonators, modulators, photodiode, etc.)
  • Characterization of photonic building blocks, circuits, and systems.
  • Preparing the layout of the photonic integrated circuit components and systems.
  • Improving and optimizing the existing design methodologies and procedures.
  • Contributing to funded and bilateral projects through their definition and their execution, depending on level of experience and expertise.
  • Reporting to colleagues and clients.
  • Publishing in international journals and contributing to major conferences.

Key Qualifications

  • PhD degree in Photonics, Electronics or Physics Engineering or equivalent experience.
  • Experience in developing optical transceivers (e.g. optical module, system integration, packaging, test, etc.).
  • Experience in coherent transmission systems, signal integrity, photonic integration, and/or DSP.
  • Experience with industry standard design tools (e.g. Lumerical, Ledit, Luceda, Synposis, Cadence, etc)
  • Experience in programming
  • Experience with foundry tapeout
  • Experience in electronics design/RF design/IC design
  • Experience in publishing on integrated photonics
  • Demonstrate good communication skills for interfacing with internal and external customers
  • Ability to take initiative and work independently, while being part of a team
  • Are pragmatic and hands on, with a can-do attitude
  • Experience working in R&D environments
