Imec is headquartered in Leuven, Belgium and also has distributed R&D groups at a number of Flemish universities, in the Netherlands, Taiwan, USA, China, and offices in India and Japan.
All of these particular traits make IDLab a top-class research employer.
Project Title- high-speed, broadband IC design for high-capacity optical communications
Location- Ghent University-imec IDLab research group, Belgium
Eligibility/Qualification- To strengthen research group design team, this vacancy is looking for a strong research profile on analog and mixed-signal circuit design for broadband driver, receiver and equalizer circuits.
Typical research projects in the Design group involve multiple researchers with different specialties working as a team. Hence, a good team spirit, a good knowledge of English and effective communication skills (such as presenting and reporting) are of major importance for a successful collaboration. We offer you a challenging position in an advanced design and lab environment, a monthly salary or a PhD scholarship, and the possibility to follow various advanced training courses in Belgium or abroad. Work experience (academic or industrial) and publications are certainly a plus.
Job/Position Description- The Design group of the Ghent University-imec IDLab research group is currently looking for several new PhD researchers. The Design team is internationally recognized as a leading research group on high-speed and high-frequency integrated circuits for next-generation communications systems. At this moment, the Design group is for example active in seven European projects and in direct research contracts with world-leading industry partners. Besides these high-profile projects, the Design group is also a core partner in the ERC Atto project of Prof. Piet Demeester. These roadmaps form the perfect basis for high-level and industry-relevant research in an environment with expert peers and top-notch test and measurement equipment.
The main research lines focus on wired (fiber-optic, radio-over-fiber, copper), wireless (RF, 5G, mmWave) and instrumentation for which custom CMOS or SiGe BiCMOS chips are developed and integrated in system demonstrators.
