What you will do

As a member of the Exploratory Device team you enable novel device concepts for beyond-CMOS logic applications.

You will work closely with our engineers and researchers to evaluate and benchmark spintronic majority gate devices and potentially circuits.

Your main responsibilities are

  • Micromagnetics simulation for device design and modeling of experimental data, including:
    • Spintronic logic device design and modeling
    • Conceiving and improving majority gate device design
  • Circuit design and synthesis with majority gate devices
  • Guiding and supervising Master and PhD students


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.

    ENGLISH: Excellent


Who you are

  • We see your Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering or Physics, and your industrial or postdoc experience as key to be successful in this exciting role.
  • We really need your knowledge/experience with simulation tools such as OOMMF (Object Oriented MicroMagnetic Framework) and/or MuMax (general purpose micromagnetic simulation).
  • We see your knowledge in logic synthesis, spice/spectre and previous work on any spin-based technology as a plus.
  • We are looking for an enthusiastic colleague who can work both, independent and in team.
  • We appreciate your excellent English communication skills and agility to work in a multicultural environment.


Specific Requirements

This postdoctoral position is funded by imec through KU Leuven.
