Senior Pixel Device Engineer

What you will do

Imec Derivative Technologies department offers companies to develop and fabricate customized specialty microsystems that cannot be produced in standard CMOS technology. To achieve this, we have developed our own platforms to process various CMOS imagers – hyperspectral, backside illuminated, embedded CCD-in-CMOS, Quantum Dots on Silicon, Single Photon Avalanche Diodes, and photonics chips. We have the freedom to tune our technology to the demands of our partners and develop advanced technology flows for prototypes / low-volume production as well as exploratory pixel / sensor architectures. To develop and explore new pixel concepts and technologies, we are looking for a motivated Senior Pixel Device Engineer.

You will be working in Imec’s Imagers System-on-Chip group as Senior Pixel Designer. Our group aims to develop innovative state-of-the-art imager technologies for diverse fields and scientific applications.

As a Senior Pixel Device Engineer, you will be responsible for: 

  • Defining innovative device architectures and process conditions using TCAD simulations 
  • Designing advanced pixel according to internal or external specifications 
  • Defining test structures to assess device performance 
  • Interpreting electrical and optical data and providing feedbacks to Integration engineers 
  • Reporting project status to management and customers 
  • Following-up PhD or Master Thesis students working on exploratory pixel topics
