Principal Analog IC Design Engineer RF & mmWave

What you will do

Imec enjoys a world-class reputation in advanced communication and radar and millimeter wave sensing systems. In these fields, the group has a vertical system approach: our expertise ranges from antenna, frontend, baseband to algorithms and systems. Specifically, for IC design, imec’s established reputation has been confirmed every year by our extensive presence in top conferences such as ISSCC, RFIC, ESSCIRC and CICC. As a Principal Researcher you will be:

  • Crafting the strategy for the Analog IC Design team based on market inputs and foreseeable state of the art technologies. 
  • Improving and optimizing existing design methodologies and procedures. 
  • Initiating and contributing to funded and bilateral projects through their definition and execution.
  • Performing analog design from specification to documentation on block and top level according to the imec design flow.
  • Coming up with new ideas for future analog IC’s, going beyond problem solving, question the status quo.
  • Publishing in international journals and contributing to major conferences.
  • Researching and designing of innovative analog, mixed signal, RF and millimeter wave circuits.
  • Driving the bottom-up evolution of analog, mixed signal, RF and millimeter wave designs taking technology scaling into account.
  • Together with the team, bring new ideas, new technical methods based on your solid technical experience.
  • Hiring team members and build a productive research team.
  • Interacting with external partners and new prospects, as part of the technical support.
