Who translates technology potential towards scientific excellence with global impact
Imec at Holst Centre has
established a world-leading track record in the design of novel sensors for
ultra-low power IoT devices, sensors for autonomous systems, and health
applications. For instance, our teams lead innovations in wireless
communication and sensing, electro-optical design, accurate localization, and
edge AI. Our headquarters in Leuven, Belgium, is world renowned for pioneering
new process technologies in collaboration with industrial foundries and with
the broader semiconductor ecosystem.
In our Eindhoven offices, at the center of a world-class high-tech systems environment, we have the ambition to pioneer unique heterogeneous edge nodes where edge AI, neural nets, and fusion methods are closely co-designed with the device innovations from adjacent technology programs. More than ever, innovation relies on multi-disciplinary design. Imec’s research tracks enable unique opportunities for end-to-end innovations.
While “System-on-Chip (SoC)” integration in standard CMOS has been a driver for the semiconductor industry for many decades, we are now entering an era where chiplet-based system design is needed in order to leverage the performance of specialty technologies like photonics, ultra-sonics, electro-chemical materials and biosensors. Signal processing gets closely co-designed with the physics of the specialty device. At the same time, embedded signal processing moves from classic deterministic algorithms to neural nets to embed self-learning intelligence in edge AI devices.
In this new role, you lead innovation on algorithms, DSP, and neural nets, to embed edge AI into new imec sensors like optical sensor chips or ultra-sound transducers for target applications like IoT, autonomous systems, co-botic perception systems, micro-location, and similar. You work with a team of signal processing experts and neuromorphic designers but also bridge to IC, photonics, and sensor designers.
You will work from Holst Centre/imec the Netherlands in Eindhoven yet in close collaboration with the research groups located in imec Belgium and the OnePlanet/imec research in Wageningen/Nijmegen.
We offer a challenging and
international environment amongst top-notch researchers at the forefront of
technology, in an international network of renowned industrial customers. This
is your opportunity to bring new technologies to the market that will have an
impact on tomorrow’s society.
Imec The Netherlands offers you an attractive compensation and benefits package including a 100% employer-paid pension plan and flexible working hours. For international candidates, we provide support in the relocation process. We continuously invest in our people through training, but also conferences, seminars and other scientific platforms are part of our investments.
