Research & development - Gent | More than two weeks ago
Ghent University is one of the most important education and research institutions in the Low Countries, ranked 71 in the Academic Ranking of World Universities (http://www.shanghairanking.com/). On a daily basis, over 15,000 staff members and 49,000 students implement its motto "Dare to Think". Ghent University's mission statement is characterized by qualitative education, internationally renowned research and a pluralistic social responsibility.
The IDLab research group is also a core group of imec. Imec is the world-leading research and innovation hub in nanoelectronics and digital technologies. Imec is headquartered in Leuven, Belgium and also has distributed R&D groups at a number of Flemish universities, in the Netherlands, Taiwan, USA, China, and offices in India and Japan.
All of these particular traits make IDLab a top-class research employer.
The IDLab-Design group, of Ghent University and imec have started significant integrated circuit design activities towards creation of IP blocks and prototype chips using highly scaled CMOS processes, including for example 5nm FinFET. The mask layout design in such highly scaled processes is challenging in nature and a highly skilled task. The level of difficulty is further increased if it concerns IP for high-speed and high-frequency operation.
You will join a team of integrated circuit (IC) design researchers and layout engineers who are working towards realization of wireline DAC prototypes using scaled CMOS (e.g. 5nm FinFET), with following tasks and responsibilities:
The successful candidate will join an internationally renowned team of high-speed electronic integrated circuit designers. Training for completing mask layout tasks in some of the world’s most advanced semiconductor processes will be provided. He or she will also get the opportunity to learn other skills e.g. related to the existing ECAD environment, integrated circuit design, printed circuit board layout, soft skills etc.
