As a trusted partner for companies, start-ups and universities we bring together close to 3,500 brilliant minds from over 70 nationalities. 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 imec to be a top-class employer. To strengthen this position as a leading player in our field, we are looking for those passionate talents that make the difference! Currently we are looking for a motivated Post Doc Quantum Computing.

The job

The team you will be joining at imec is working on a systems perspective to build a quantum computer. Our experimental efforts consist of fabricating a benchmarking imec qubits with similar devices out there. You will contribute to bridge the experimental data and build compact models of the qubits and to design classical circuits to drive and read the qubits. At a later stage, design of digital and/or analog circuitry for quantum error correction will be added to the package.
You will closely interact with the device and integration engineers working on Si CMOS devices and qubit devices. By its nature, this is a wide team effort and active interaction with our collaborators from universities and partner companies is expected and encouraged.
As this is groundbreaking work in a new field of engineering, curiosity and drive to succeed are very valuable personal traits.


  • You have a PhD degree in Electronics Engineering.
  • You have extensive knowledge of either analog design and/ or design of digital circuits for low temperature applications.
  • You are familiar with circuit design and have good knowledge of physics.
  • You are flexible, innovative and results driven.

This position might be just what you are looking for if you want to make a difference and you are looking for a challenge, you are self-driven and constantly exploring new opportunities.


In exchange for your talent, passion and expertise, you will join a multicultural and high-tech company, with challenges there for the taking. Our flexible, progressive and informal working environment offers you a range of possibilities to take initiative and show responsibility. This is your opportunity to contribute to the technology that will determine the society of tomorrow. imec supports and guides you in this process; not only with words but with concrete actions. Through, 'our corporate university', we are actively investing in the further development of all our employees to assure their technical and personal growth.

This postdoctoral position is funded by imec through the KU Leuven. Because of the specific financing statute which targets international mobility for postdocs, only candidates who did not stay or work/study in Belgium for more than 24 months in the past 3 years can be considered for the position (short stays such as holiday, participation in conferences, etc. are not taken into account).
