We are seeking GaN Power Electronics Device Engineer for the design and testing of power devices in GaN-on-Si technology

What you will do

Gallium Nitride (GaN) technology offers faster switching power devices with higher breakdown voltages and lower on-resistance than silicon (Si). GaN power devices are a breakthrough technology, revolutionizing the power electronics landscape and have an exciting roadmap for next generation GaN power devices. Imec has developed 100V, 200V and 650V enhancement mode devices on 200mm GaN-on-Silicon wafers with state-of-the-art performance and reproducibility.   

We are seeking an experienced semiconductor device modelling engineer who can model GaN power transistors, creating models based on measurement data, defining testing structures and measurements needed to provide data to validate and calibrate models.  

Your tasks include: 

  • Device test for device characterization and model extraction
  • Development, generation, and parameter extraction of semiconductor device compact models
  • Interpret test data and work together with the process integration engineer to optimize the fabrication flow and layout for improved performance and reliability of the power devices.
  • Understand the device physics, band diagram and comprehensive operation of the power device under static and dynamic modes, to guide the optimization process.
  • Participate roadmap discussions and manage projects

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 define the society of tomorrow.
