Electronics & Engineering

What you will do

We are looking for an electrical engineer with knowledge of microfluidic devices with electric field actuation. You will:

  • Contribute to concept formulations for novel devices for the life science application demands, with your extensive knowledge in electrical and electronic devices applied to microfluidics. You are expected to contribute with insights regarding the electrical limitations and risk of devices, electrodes, and circuit design, among others.
  • Design device measurement schemes and perform multidisciplinary measurements to test the functionality of microfluidic devices for certain assays.
  • Perform analytical calculations and multidisciplinary simulations to evaluate concepts of devices and systems and perform the device design accordingly.
  • Work effectively in simultaneous projects, adapting to new projects, following timelines agreed with customers and report the results internally and externally.
  • Work closely and communicate with an interdisciplinary team of physicists, engineers, and biologist.

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 committed to being an inclusive employer and 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 imec.academy, '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 market appropriate salary with many fringe benefits.

Who you are

  • You have a PhD degree in electric engineer or similar fields, or equivalent experience,
  • You have solid theoretical understanding of the electric properties and physics involved in electric actuation.
  • You have practical experience in designing and building electrically actuated microfluidics.
  • You are skilled in modelling and simulation, such as COMSOL or ANSYS.
  • You are a team player.
  • You are fluent in English and have good communication skills.
