Job Details

Germanium and Silicon IC Designer (Req. ID 13901)
MIT Lincoln Laboratory
Lexington, MA

The Advanced Imager Technology Group performs research and development of imager devices and subsystem-level technology for the DoD and scientific community. The imager efforts include advanced silicon-based and compound semiconductor-based focal-plane technologies for applications such as ground- and space-based surveillance, adaptive optics, and astronomy. These focal planes address special requirements, for example, large-format gigapixel arrays, very-high-speed imagers (100 ps exposures), time-of-arrival detectors (LADAR receiver), and low-light-level imaging applications. World-class charge-coupled-device (CCD) imagers fabricated by this group have been used in a variety of high-end scientific applications, for example, focal planes for the Chandra X-ray telescope and other preeminent astronomical observatories. The group's efforts span the range of device and materials - development, integrated circuit design and fabrication, custom packaging, detector hybridization, and the development of control and readout electronics for system-level demonstrations.

The Advanced Imager Technology Group is seeking to hire a staff member to design the next generation of germanium and silicon imagers. The emphasis of this job will be on device design and modeling, microfabrication, testing, and system applications. The candidate will be expected to work in a fast-paced environment with a small team of circuit designers, fabrication engineers, and testing specialists. The team will be responsible for designing and fabricating imaging systems with an emphasis on developing novel solutions to complex imaging problems.


  • Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering or Physics with a deep understanding of semiconductor device physics and an emphasis on silicon or germanium integrated circuits.
  • Experience with the design, simulation, and layout of complex integrated circuits is required.
  • Experience with device design and modeling, microfabrication, testing, and system design is desirable.
  • Demonstrated effective written and oral communication skills are required.
