Do you know how to design analog and RF circuits? Let‘s get pioneering ideas off the ground that turn visions into products! Join our team in Erfurt for:

ASIC development: Design of analog circuits (d/f/m)

(Reference number IMMS_1022_ME01)

What to do:

  • Help the microelectronics team turn bioanalytics into pocket size or turn RFID for more than just opening doors.
  • To achieve this, research innovative solutions with us for analog and RF circuits.
  • Work with us on new integrated sensor and ultra-low-power concepts. Only this way we can develop ever more sophisticated chips in the future.
  • Quality has to be perfect for this. Hence, you design analog testbenches and do design reviews.
  • And – we support up to 40 students per year during their university education and when they start their careers. You will also quickly take over the professional mentoring of junior staff.

What to bring with you:

  • Degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Systems Engineering, or similar (PhD/Master/Diploma/Bachelor)
  • Vision and overview for the hierarchical design of complex systems
  • Ability to cooperate and work in a team, self-reliance, self-driven, systematic way of working
  • Good language skills in German and English

Good to have:

  • Professional experience in analog integrated circuit design
  • Knowledge of opto-electronics, ADCs, DAC, SC circuits
  • Experience with the Cadence IC 6.1 design environment

What we can offer you:

  • Apply your engineering skills in interdisciplinary R&D projects at the interface between university and industry
  • Work in a flexible and creative team and on innovative and challenging topics
  • Technical qualification, e.g. with the latest IC design software, and personal qualification in teamwork, communication and leadership
  • Work in state-of-the-art equipped laboratories
  • Full-time or part-time work, initially limited to 2 years

We are looking forward to meeting you!

We thank you for your interest in working with us. You can get to know us in advance by contacting Eric: eric.schaefer(at), +49.361.66325.35. You can also directly send your application to mario.goerlach(at) (subject IMMS_1022_ME01) by 31 January 2023 (please remember to state when you can join us at the earliest).

For the tasks described in the job offer and with the existing working conditions, an application is possible irrespective of gender and/or any physical disabilities. We foster professional equality of women and men. We invite women in particular to apply. As women are underrepresented in the subject area, they will be given priority in the case of equal suitability, ability and professional performance.

And this is us:

We strengthen enterprises with application-oriented research and development in microelectronics, systems engineering and mechatronics and transfer the results of basic research into applications and products. We support companies in launching internationally successful innovations for health, the environment and industry and provide solutions from the feasibility study to series production.

Core topic

AI-based design and test automation

We are researching to use AI to make the development process of integrated sensor systems safer and more cost-effective. AI can help developers in the process to avoid errors and apply informal knowledge in an automated way.

Core topic

CMOS-based biosensors

We are researching CMOS-integrated transducers and their interaction with biological receptors. They offer the potential for precise, digital and cost-effective point-of-care tests and allow properties to be recorded on a molecular scale.

Service for R&D

IC design methods

We develop new AI-based methods and tools for your system-on-chip and FPGA designs to master the increasing complexity of integrated systems and thus further increase performance.

Service for R&D

Integrated Circuits

We offer the design and realisation of application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) in CMOS, BiCMOS and SOI technologies. We achieve well-performing ASICs with our first runs (first-time right silicon).

Research field

Integrated sensor systems

Here we investigate miniaturised systems manufactured in semiconductor technology consisting of microelectronic components for sensors applications, as well as methods to design these highly complex systems efficiently and safely.

Lead application

RFID sensor technology

We are researching energy-efficient solutions for RFID sensor technology in order to open up new applications and, for example, to make processes in industry more resource-efficient.

Lead application

Sensor systems for in-vitro diagnostics

Here we are developing sensor systems for in-vitro diagnostics that enable individual, decentralised health monitoring for all with electronic rapid tests.

Core topic

ULP sensor systems

We research and develop ultra-low-power (ULP) sensor systems that require very little power and have integrated energy management components. Our goal is to use them to open up new applications for the Internet of Things.
