Senior Ultrasound MEMS Design (temporary assignment)

Within imec’s Sensor and Actuator Technology department, our team’s activities focus on the development of novel applications using transducers, sensors and actuators using MEMS technology. The team is working on the design and characterization of the devices itself as well as the full system analysis until the creation of demos.

The assignment

  • You will design novel MEMS ultrasound transducers in existing technologies and technologies under development. More specifically, the team is working on new ultrasounds applications composed of actuators and sensors which need to be optimize to specific application.
  • You will participate to the characterization of the designed devices in order to validate and update your model.
  • You will participate and drive the productization phase (test/reliability) of the designed devices.
  • You will maintain a high standard of literature knowledge to support the design activities.
  • You will collaborate with specialists from our cross-disciplinary design and technology teams.
  • If needed, you will mentor Master internship students and PhD students.

Required knowledge and skills

  • PhD degree in Physics, Mechanics or Electrical Engineering with more than 5 years of relevant experience in ultrasound design for productization.
  • Proven experience
    • in simulation using FEM tools as ANSYS or COMSOL. ANSYS modelling competencies is an asset
    • in design Ultrasound transducers for industry application
    • in project leading (Asset).
  • The imec environment requires a good team player with competent communication and reporting skills.
  • Given the international character of imec, a good knowledge of English is mandatory.

Duration of the assignment and work regime

  • 6 months, fulltime

Desired start date 

  • As soon as available


  • imec, Leuven (given the operational work, working remote is not possible in this assignment)
