Education level – MS/ PhD

Job description
Would you like to join a talented and passionate team at a new R&D center in the field of chip integration, engaging with leading industries in automotive, healthcare technology and other high-tech sectors? Then you are welcome at CITC in Nijmegen. We are currently looking for a thermal-mechanical simulation engineer to strengthen our international team. You will be working at the interface of materials science, process technology, microelectronics and packaging in a multidisciplinary research environment, together with the industry.

Your Responsibilities

  • Thermal and mechanical modeling of high-performance power dies from die to package-level.
  • Simulation of innovative die attach and packaging concepts for a next generation power and RF devices.
  • Thermal-mechanical modelling for RF packaging, in particular for Antenna-In-Package architectures.
  • Co-design methodologies to combine RF and thermal-mechanical aspects, working in close collaborations with RF and antenna designers.
  • Analysis of simulation results to define package design requirements.
  • Participate with expertise and take responsibility in ongoing collaborative projects with international customers.
  • Interaction with our industrial partners and customers on a day-to-day basis.
  • Supervision of students.

Your Profile

  • MS in Mechanical Engineering, Engineering Mechanics, Material Science, Physics, or a related field;
  • 3+ years of direct hands-on experience in thermal/mechanical modeling in a related R&D or high-tech industry;
  • Expert knowledge of major thermal and structural tools, e.g., ANSYS, ABAQUS, COMSOL or similar;
  • In-depth knowledge in thermal/mechanical modeling of advanced packaging, with primary focus on die attach/interconnect reliability, at all levels – die to system and/or package thermomechanical integrity (e.g. warpage simulations);
  • Understanding of microelectronics reliability testing;
  • Proven creativity through a strong list of publications, patent applications and/or other tangible output;
  • Flexible, adaptive capacity and perseverance;
  • A pro-active and hands-on mentality, taking responsibility and organizing work in an efficient manner;
  • Excellent team player;
  • Good verbal and written communication skills in English.
