Research & development - Leuven | More than two weeks ago
imec is an international non-profit research institute headquartered in Belgium, active in the field of nanotechnology, semi-conductors and digital technology.
The Compute System Architecture Unit at imec leads research into futuristic computer systems to extend imec’s semiconductor research leadership deep into the next decade. We work closely with the semiconductor technology departments, with prototype machines and chips which are 5 – 15 years ahead of anything commercially available today. Before new computer chip designs are built, computer system architectures are simulated virtually to predict the energy use and performance of software applications on these architectures with high accuracy.
This unit is researching high-performance core designs, domain specific accelerator-based architectures, compute-in-memory architectures and heterogeneous memory systems.
The objective of this role is to enable imec to efficiently explore what future computers should look like.
Your contribution is to develop and manage software frameworks that are used in computer system simulations. You analyze relevant workloads, applications and algorithms and identify bottlenecks or acceleration opportunities.
More in detail, you will be responsible for:
“Must-haves” (Essential skills and competencies):
“Should-haves” (a great match is familiar with most of these):
“Could-haves” (it is nice to tick a few of these boxes):
imec offers its employees a market-competitive compensation and benefits
package, engaging career opportunities, and state of the art facilities. The
CSA department is based at the imec offices in Leuven, recently voted as ‘European
capital of innovation’.
In exchange for your talent, passion, and expertise, you will join a multicultural and high-tech company, with challenges there for the taking. Our flexible and informal working environment offers you a range of possibilities to take initiative and demonstrate responsibility. imec supports and guides you in this process, not only with words but with concrete actions. This is your opportunity to contribute to the technology that will determine the society of tomorrow. You can help drive imec’s technology and architecture roadmap to build the computer systems of the future. Through imec.academy, and other training initiatives, we actively invest in the further development of all our employees to assure their technical and personal growth. Your valuable contribution and that of your colleagues make imec a top player in its field.
