Data Scientist - Sensor Fusion

When sensors and chips meet AI

Across a broad set of domains, from automotive to life sciences, imec is known for developing entirely new chip and sensor technologies, in close collaboration with key industry partners and other stakeholders. Be it from brain implants to advanced lidar enabling the future generations of self-driving cars, these technologies help generate entirely new or much better kinds of data. To make sense of this data and to improve upon our sensor and chip roadmaps, the role of AI is becoming important. Be it to accelerate their development or to explore and define the role of AI on edge or on chip.

For further development of these AI activities and roadmaps, we are looking for a senior AI researcher who facilitates and leads research projects involving the use of AI across a broad range of projects. This includes the growing role of AI in the hardware/software codesign of new sensor- and chip-technologies as well as exploring relevant insights and AI models resulting from the data generated by them. More specifically we are looking to apply and advance the state-of-the art of Sensor Fusion and its use in these projects.

What you will do

  • You will be responsible for leading the data science and AI aspects of research projects across different domains strategic to imec.
  • You follow up on progress within research projects and are able to communicate the accomplished / in-process work to internal and external stakeholders and adapt where needed.
  • You work together with technical teams in implementing the data science and AI output of your projects into a working whole

What we do for you

We offer you the opportunity to join one of the world’s premier research centers in nanotechnology at its headquarters in Leuven, Belgium. With your talent, passion and expertise, you’ll become part of a team that makes the impossible possible. Together, we shape the technology that will determine the society of tomorrow.

We are committed to being an inclusive employer and proud of our open, multicultural, and informal working environment with ample possibilities to take initiative and show responsibility.
