Research & development - Leuven | More than two weeks ago

As a Development Support Engineer you take on a key role in developing the next generation semiconductor technologies that will feed the next generation servers and IoT applications.

Development Support Engineer 

What you will do

For our Compute and Memory Technology (CMT) unit we are currently looking for a (m/f) (Junior) Development Support Engineer who will be critical to the success of our Research & Development programs. 
Your job: 
  • As a Development Support Engineer you take on a key role in developing the next generation semiconductor technologies that will feed the next generation servers and IoT applications. Therefore, you will contribute to optimizing advanced process development that are critical to the success of our research programs.
  • During an intensive training period you will be coached by our senior experts. They will introduce you to imec's activities, teach and practice with you everything you need to know to excel in your role. From device physics, process integration, data analysis, to metrology and process tools we use. 
  • Your mentors will introduce you to our way of working, they will teach you how to efficiently setup an experiment. This way you will acquire a professional level of handling the tools, and you will be able to execute and analyze the results. This will enable you to make well-grounded decisions based on test and inspection results. These decisions are required to continue our processing activities and developments. Additionally, you will help to efficiently troubleshoot any unforeseen problem that might occur in your area of expertise.
  • In your role you will be the first point of contact for imec’s teams who are responsible for the critical production of devices (such as the pilot production line team or the research team focusing on exploratory concepts for beyond CMOS). Your decisions will allow these teams to ensure continuous processing. You will also have to assure a clear and thorough communication with your colleagues who work in different shifts.
  • You will work in different shift regimes. The regimes will include an alternating early, late and weekend shift.
As timing is critical in our business, we are looking for people with strong analytical and organizational skills, who can analyze and respond effectively to incoming request and issues in a timely manner. We need people who enjoy a (high) level of autonomy in their work, who are looking for an intellectual challenge, and foremost who are willing and able to learn fast.

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 will 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.
