Senior Analog IC designer 

Architect, design and implement ultra-low-power analog ICs for the life science and MedTech domain.  

Imec Netherlands has established a world-leading track record on the design of novel sensors for human health applications and ultra-low-power IoT devices in general. For instance, our teams continue to develop innovations in implantable therapeutics, medical/wearable devices, environmental monitoring, accurate localization, and many other fields. At our HQ in Leuven, Belgium we are world-renowned for pioneering new process technologies in collaboration with industrial foundries and with the broader semiconductor ecosystem. Imec’s research tracks enable unique opportunities for end-to-end innovations.  

The IC-design team in imec Netherlands develops innovative solutions for the Life Science and Medical Device domain and on the other hand for massive and heterogeneous sensor networks to connect billions of devices within the internet of things (IoT). In this position you will participate in the development of innovative solutions that improve the future of healthcare. Together with other Researchers and Engineers you will investigate technologies and contribute to our research in implantables, artificial organs and neuro-stimulation. We deliver our designs to customers, patent the different inventions, and publish our results in renowned conferences and papers (ISSCC, VLSI, ESSCIRC, DATE, JSSC, etc.). In this position, you are part of a multi-disciplinary team to make our solutions smarter by adding neuromorphic circuits, use analog circuits for sensing solutions, and develop miniature transceivers for IoT and medical/ implantable applications. 


What you will do

We need you as a Senior Analog IC Designer to be part of our multidisciplinary team to: 

  • Design innovative and high-performance integrated circuits focusing on a.o. implantable therapeutics, nerve stimulation and wireless power transfer. It includes blocks like sensor readouts, ADCs for medical applications, instrumentation amplifiers, low-noise amplifier, analog filtering, programmable gain amplifiers, etc.
  • Understand and support (internal and external) customer needs, challenges, and requirements and translate those into innovations and solutions to be incorporated into your designs.
  • Script and automate design flows.
  • Implementing modules, integrating, and finish the chip for manufacturing.
  • Together with the team, you will perform research focused on new technical methods; 
  • Publish and participate in high-quality reports, contribute to patent applications;
  • Coach and guide junior team members to grow their talent, the quality of the work, and the innovative relevance; 
  • Collaborate with other disciplines such as Digital IC design, Health Research, Photonics, AI… 

What we do for you

By joining imec, you will be part of a team of disruptive innovators and thinkers. You will be part of a team of disruptive innovators and thinkers. Together, with our Researchers and Engineers, you will work on implants and companions for artificial organs to develop building blocks for autonomous closed-loop care. We invite you to be part of our ambitious team where your ideas will have an impact on our society and our future lives.
