As part of our growth and new project acquisition we would like to strengthen our design engineer teams. We are looking for a micro acoustic structural modelling and simulation design engineer who will be responsible for the development of new resonators structure and filter design.

The recruited candidate will have the following responsibilities:

  • Resonator design and modelling of new microstructures. 2D and 3D Multiphysics simulations of resonators (COMSOL or equivalent software)
  • Experience in design of resonator-based filters (ladder filters, CRF)
  • Design of SAW/BAW filters prototypes
  • Analytical modelling of BAW resonators (BVD model, Transfer Matrix, Mason equivalent circuit)
  • Coupling-Of-Modes (COM) analysis of SAW resonators
  • Good understanding of microfabrication constrains for the development of next generation of acoustic wave resonators for RF MEMS Filters application was well as SAW sensors
  • Characterization of resonators and filters
  • Extraction of resonators parameters and comparison to models.
  • Writing of the invention disclosures leading to patents of new solutions to solve the current technical challenges in next generation of RF MEMS Filters and SAW sensors


  • PhD in design and modelling in acoustic wave resonators with strong theoretical and analytical background
  • Good understanding of the current challenges in the design and modelling of next generation of RF filters for 5 G applications
  • Good knowledge of piezoelectric and electrostatic MEMS transducers
  • Excellent oral & written English skills
  • Familiarity with project managing desirable


  • Diversified research activities with plenty of interesting technical challenges.
  • State-of-the-art lab facilities and instruments.
  • Internal and external training opportunities for further development.
