As a scientific editor you can translate our groundbreaking research into qualitative texts aimed at different target groups and channels.


Science Editor

What will you do

  • As a science editor you (re)write texts (press releases, articles for the imec magazine and for international journals, project and technology flyers, white papers, etc.) in Dutch and English. Potential topics cover different imec research disciplines: from chip, radar, sensor and solar cell technologies to artificial intelligence, data (security), photonics, IoT communication and (solid state) batteries - to name but a few.   
  • You will carefully tune your texts to the predetermined communication channel (magazine, blog text, imec website, ...) and the target audience.
  • You are in close contact with the imec researchers to collect interesting content. You take responsibility for the planning and follow-up of your various writing assignments - from setting up interviews to text creation and validation. The delivery of high-quality texts - with respect for deadlines - is key.

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 proud of our open, multicultural, and informal working environment with ample possibilities to take initiative and show responsibility. We commit to supporting and guiding you in this process; not only with words but also with tangible actions. Through, 'our corporate university', we actively invest in your development to further your technical and personal growth.

We are aware that your valuable contribution makes imec a top player in its field. Your energy and commitment are therefore appreciated by means of a competitive salary with many fringe benefits.

Who are you

  • You have at least five years of relevant experience in techno-scientific communication.
  • You write flawlessly and fluently in Dutch and English. You can deal with various (and often very complex) subjects.
  • Continuous training in new subjects is a passion for you, not a challenge.
  • You are independent, punctual and work in a structured and systematic way. You succeed in tackling several writing assignments at the same time and efficiently.
  • You are a team player and communicative.
  • You can convince us with a portfolio of self-written techno-scientific texts.
  • Leuven is your operating base - but you can easily move between the imec offices in Belgium and the Netherlands, and our research groups at the various Flemish universities.
