The job

Imec’s Large Area Electronics department is developing electronics on glass and flexible plastic substrates for integration into tomorrow’s flexible displays, imagers and biomedical applications. In this growing R&D activity, we are currently looking for a process assistant to support our thin film transistor developments.
You will develop process steps as well as integration of process steps into full transistor stacks and devices. For this challenging task, we are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated person with experience in cleanroom processing, such as photolithographic patterning, chemical etch and thin film deposition.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Independent start-up of processing experiments under the supervision of the responsible project leader or scientist. 
  • Deposition of thin films from solution and vacuum, using in particular tools like spin-coating, chemical vapor deposition and atomic-layer deposition. 
  • Photolithographic patterning of the deposited layers.
  • Physical and optical characterization of the deposited layers and realized devices
  • Regular reporting in a consistent and rigorous way.


You have a Bachelor’s degree with experience or a Master’s degree in Chemistry, Nanotechnology or equivalent. You like working within a team and can schedule your work according to deadlines and deliverables. You are creative and like thinking with the engineers to solve problems. Experience with processing in a high-tech laboratory environment, such as a semiconductor-industry fab, is a plus. You take initiative and work independently, while being part of a team. You are result-driven and flexible to meet stringent deadlines with quality output. You are flexible to accept new challenges in the future, and to evolve together with the changing R&D demands of our high-tech environment. The imec environment requires a good team player with competent communication and reporting skills. Given the international character of imec, a good knowledge of English is mandatory. 


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 imecAcademy, 'our corporate university', we are actively investing in the further development of all our employees to assure their technical and personal growth. Your valuable contribution and that of your colleagues make imec a top player in its field. Your energy and commitment are therefore appreciated by means of an attractive and competitive salary with many fringe benefits.
