You are here: Jobs / Scientific Director Heterogeneous System and Edge AI design @ imec
Imec at Holst Centre has established a world-leading track record on the design of novel sensors for ultra-low power IoT devices, sensors for autonomous systems, and health applications. For instance, our teams lead innovations in wireless communication and sensing, electro-optical design, accurate localization and edge AI. Our headquarters in Leuven, Belgium, is world renowned for pioneering new process technologies in collaboration with industrial foundries and with the broader semiconductor ecosystem. In our Eindhoven offices, at the centre of a world-class high tech systems environment, we have the ambition to pioneer unique heterogeneous edge nodes where edge AI, neural nets and fusion methods are closely co-designed with the device innovations from adjacent technology programs. More than ever, innovation relies on multi-disciplinary design. Imec’s research tracks enable unique opportunities for end-to-end innovations.
While “System-on-Chip (SoC)” integration in standard CMOS has been a driver for the semiconductor industry for many decades, we are now entering an era where chiplet-based system design is needed in order to leverage the performance of specialty technologies like photonics, ultra-sonics, electro-chemical materials or even cells. Signal processing gets closely co-designed with the physics of the specialty device and moves from classic deterministic algorithms to neural nets, self-learning and edge AI methods.
In this new role, you co-design new algorithms and neural nets with f.i. optical sensor chips or ultra-sound transducers for target applications like IoT, autonomous systems, co-botic perception systems, micro location and similar. You work with a team of signal processing experts and neuromorphic designers but also bridge to IC and photonics designers.
You will work from Holst Centre/imec the Netherlands in Eindhoven, yet in close collaboration with the research groups located in imec Belgium and the OnePlanet/imec research in Wageningen/Nijmegen.
