Contribute to next-generation neural interfaces and biomedical devices

What you will do

At imec, we craft state-of-the-art neurotechnology products that aim to advance neuroscience research. Our systems-on-a-chip require advanced analog circuits for ultra-low-noise amplification, analog-to-digital conversion, power management, among others.

Do you enjoy working on challenges that no one has solved yet? We have an opportunity for a passionate, forward-thinking and experienced analog Analog IC Designer.

As a member of our neurotech team, you will have the great opportunity to investigate, innovate and contribute to next-generation neural interfaces and biomedical devices.

As analog IC designer, your key responsibilities will be :

  • Actively participate in defining concepts and architectures for next generation ICs for biomedical applications
  • Collaborate in an inter-disciplinary team. Understand (internal or external) customer requirements and challenges, and translate them into specifications and solutions to be incorporated in the designs
  • Design high-quality blocks and document designs towards formal design reviews
  • Work on top-level simulations to validate top-level integration
  • Guide and follow-up layout engineers who implement layout views of your designs
  • Validate your own designs experimentally in a lab environment
  • Work with multi-functional teams across imec to support post-CMOS fabrication and lab evaluation phase
  • Offer Requirements

  • Skills / Qualifications

    Who you are

  • PhD on analog and mixed-signal circuit design with silicon-proven designs (or equivalent through relevant experience)
  • Strong knowledge in device physics applicable to analog IC design
  • Solid understanding of power, area, and performance trade-off in mixed-signal designs
  • Strong knowledge of general analog design circuits and, more specifically, of ultra-low-power and ultra-low-noise analog design
  • Good knowledge of power management circuits such as switching converter (buck and boost) or linear regulators would be a plus
  • A proven publication track record in top conferences ISSCC, VLSI) and / or journals is a plus
  • Excellent knowledge of analog design and verification flows and tools : Cadence Virtuoso including ADE (G)XL, layout, and design verification
  • Proven experience working in bench evaluation of own building blocks
  • Research mindset and problem-solving attitude, with a strong desire to stay up to date with recent advancements in the state-of-the-art and a broad interest across disciplines
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, combined with the ability to collaborate
  • Ability to work well in an international team, take responsibility, and motivate self and others
