Evaluating the PPAC trade-offs of advanced devices

Device Pathfinding Engineer

What you will do

As advanced CMOS technology scaling becomes increasingly challenging,  many complex technology options are considered and evaluated today. For example different device architectures (FinFETs, lateral or vertical nanowires,...) or channel materials are considered.  Also important are various process and patterning options that result in different layout choices and area scaling potential.
The benefits and challenges of these different options for future technology generations have to be evaluated not only in terms of manufacturing, but also from the application side. The gains are evaluated at circuit level in terms of power consumption, performance (speed), die area, and cost (PPAC).  
In this job, you will :
  • evaluate the PPAC trade-offs of advanced devices, in order to guide future technology development.  
  • interact closely with circuit designers, TCAD engineers, device and process integration engineers. 

What we do for you

We offer you the opportunity to join one of the world’s premier research centers in nanotechnology at its headquarters in Leuven, Belgium. With your talent, passion and expertise, you’ll become part of a team that makes the impossible possible. Together, we shape the technology that will determine the society of tomorrow. 
We are proud of our open, multicultural, and informal working environment with ample possibilities to take initiative and show responsibility. We commit to supporting and guiding you in this process; not only with words but also with tangible actions. Through, 'our corporate university', we actively invest in your development to further your technical and personal growth. 
We are aware that your valuable contribution makes imec a top player in its field. Your energy and commitment are therefore appreciated by means of a competitive salary with many fringe benefits.

Who you are

  • You have obtained PhD in electrical engineering and a good knowledge of device physics, technology, and basic circuit design
  • We are looking for a colleague with experience in compact modeling and Verilog A language
  • You have experience in TCAD simulators and custom design background in Virtuoso for doing circuit design
  • You are a communicative team player, but still you are able to work independently.
  • You like taking initiative; you are persuasive and assertive, while keeping a constructive attitude.
  • You show the flexibility to change between different projects according to changing priorities.
  • Given the international character of imec, a fluent knowledge of English is necessary.
