The Sensors, Actuators, & Microsystems (SAM) team at Institute of Microelectronics (IME) Singapore is looking for a piezoelectric microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) research scientist. The scientist will work with a multidisciplinary team and contribute to the development of promising silicon-based MEMS technology for piezoelectric ultra-low-power devices.
The job responsibilities will include:
• Designing resonant piezoelectric MEMS devices
• Developing mechanical, and piezoelectric finite element and analytical models
• Designing MEMS fabrication processes and working with the process integration team to ensure successful fabrication of devices
• Specifying integrated circuit and packaging requirements for MEMS devices and communicating the requirements to the respective teams
• Building test setups and PCB circuits for characterizing MEMS devices
• Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering / Mechanical Engineering / Applied Physics or equivalent
• Minimum 3 years of experience in MEMS (PhD work can be counted)
• Good intuition and a deep understanding of fundamental mechanical and electrical principles in MEMS. Experience with piezoelectric MEMS transduction mechanisms preferred.
• Knowledge of typical MEMS fabrication processes, with some experience in microfabrication.
• Experience with finite element software such as COMSOL, Coventorware, or Ansys.
• Experience with layout drawing software, such as Cadence, L-edit.
• Experience with ASIC design preferred
• Python programming skills for data analysis preferred
• Good communication and presentation skills
• Ability to work independently, as well as being an excellent team player.
