In this role you will become part of an international team that develops novel ICs for biomedical applications.
•In close collaboration with an interdisciplinary team you will actively define concepts and architectures for next generation ICs for biomedical applications.
•You will design high-performance analog and mixed-signal circuits for ultra-low power sensor interfaces, power management and energy harvesting. You will improve the state-of-the-art of our current circuits.
•Validate your own designs experimentally in a lab environment.
•Become an expert in this field by expanding your knowledge of the state-of-the-art by reading journals, attending conferences and submitting your research work for peer-reviewed publications.
•Constructively participate in larger design teams to ensure first-time right silicon.
•Employ industry-wide best practices in your designs to ensure quality.
•Contribute to high-quality reports and documentation.
•Support (internal or external) customers in absorbing your research work so they can implement it in their applications.
•PhD in analog circuit design with silicon-proven designs (or equivalent through relevant experience).
•Research and/or industrial experience in biomedical applications such as: bio-sensing or electro-chemical sensing or power management and energy harvesting is an asset.
•A proven publication track record in top conferences (e.g. ISSCC, VLSI, BioCAS, ... ) and/or journals (JSSC, TBCAS, ...) is a plus.
•Strong knowledge of general analog design concepts (opamps, filters, ADCs, switched-cap circuits..) and, more specifically, of ultra-low-power and ultra-low-noise analog circuit design and power management.
•You understand (internal or external) customer requirements and challenges and translate that into specifications and solutions to be incorporated in the designs.
•Excellent working knowledge of Analog and/or Mixed Signal IC design and verification flows and tools: Cadence Virtuoso including ADE (G)XL, layout and design verification (DRC, LVS, ERC) and best practices to ensure high-quality designs.
•Good knowledge of measurement and validation of high-performance, low-noise and low-power analog ICs, and basic knowledge of computational software such as Matlab and Labview to support the design and/or measurements.
•Research mindset and problem-solving attitude, with a strong desire to stay up-to-date with recent advancements in the state-of-the-art and a broad interest across disciplines.
•Team player and self-motivated. Be able to work independently and eager to take initiative and responsibility.
•Be able to communicate openly and constructively, and to present your own work clearly and concisely.
•Fluent in English (oral and written).
