Apply your Machine Learning and AI expertise to enable energy-efficient AI solutions in imec’s technology.


Machine Learning and AI Expert

What you will do

Scaling towards advanced logic nodes, device scaling become more and more challenging. In meanwhile Ai workloads have emerged to be an important driver for technology innovation.
Imec is leveraging its process technology expertise, creating specialized hardware platforms to increase the efficiency AI hardware, both for edge (battery powered) applications well as datacenters. As a Machine Learning and AI expert, you will work a dynamic and cross-disciplinary team to design and implement state of the art neural network algorithms in imec’s machine learning architecture and technology. The research is fundamental in nature but with a clear focus on future application domains such as video/audio processing, distributed intelligence, AR/VR 
You will:
  • Drive the imec strategy & roadmap for building a specialized machine learning technology and architecture from the algorithm side;
  • Drive algorithm level optimization to enable energy-efficient and robust machine learning solutions in imec’s technology: quantize to low precision, propagate critical device properties like variability to application level;
  • In the longer term, co-architect with the rest of the team methods and architectures for on-device, low-energy training or learning;
  • Do research of new algorithm and technology trends; come up with suggestions and subsequent deployment.

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 a Master degree in Electronics or Computer Science Engineering, with at least 5 years of relevant industrial experience in deep learning or a PhD in machine learning or deep learning with a few years of industrial or academic experience
  • Based on your expertise, you can form a long-term vision and can collaborate with drive and your peers towards this goal.
  • You have a good understanding of various forms of neural networks (CNN, LSTM, spiking neural networks) 
  • You have experience working with one or more deep learning frameworks such as PyTorch, TensorFlow.
  • You have knowledge of hardware architectures for deep learning. Experience with mapping deep learning algorithms on hardware (GPU or others) is a big plus
  • 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.
