Support the prototyping and product development of novel imaging and photonic systems
What you will do
Within the imec Solutions department, we build application-oriented prototypes around unique imec chip-level technology. Together with the component experts, we innovate at the system level to bring these imec technologies to the next level and to bridge the gap between research and industry. A system here is composed of an innovative microchip or sensor, combined with custom or off-the-shelf electronics, optics, mechanics, fluidics and both embedded and application specific algorithms and control software. Our mission is to demonstrate and validate these systems in a relevant environment and generate valuable data for our customers. We are building a multidisciplinary team that has expertise in system engineering, mechanics, electronics, optics, software, product development and quality systems. Some examples of applications are:
COVID-19 breathalyzer | imec
Alzheimer’s Disease, through the eyes of a hyperspectral camera | imec
Latest Neuropixels probes can track neurons over weeks | imec
We are looking for an experienced System Engineer to join our team in Leuven, to support the prototyping and product development of novel imaging and photonic systems for applications in biomanufacturing, life sciences, biomedical and machine vision applications. You will assist in defining projects, product requirement and in technically steering both internal and external development teams. As the liaison between the imec scientists and the industry, you understand the whole system: from technical potential and challenges, over user requirements, all the way to lower-level requirements. You know how to build and test something quickly by yourself, yet you are also able to steer the development of larger systems. You will report your progress, both to internal as well as external stakeholders.
In this job, your main activities will be:
