Integrated Photonics Design and Simulation Engineer (m/f/d)

The PIC design and simu­la­ti­ons engi­neers brid­ges the gap bet­ween the desi­res of the quantum archi­tects and the needs and cons­trains of the PIC fab­ri­ca­ti­on. You will deve­lop new PIC com­pon­ents and cir­cuits based on models and simu­la­ti­ons and imple­ment them as designs and lay­outs.

To achie­ve this task suc­cess­ful­ly, you are clo­se­ly lin­ked with our fab­ri­ca­ti­on experts, to under­stand their limits and require­ments. You talk a lot to our quantum archi­tects to under­stand, what the key spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­ons are, that your com­po­nent has to meet. And you ana­ly­se the input from the cha­rac­te­ri­sa­ti­on team, which tells you, how well your last designs per­for­med in reality. 

A com­ple­te app­li­ca­ti­on con­sists of a cover let­ter (moti­va­ti­on, max. one page), a CV and your diplomas.

Your tasks

  • Under­stand the phy­sics of quantum PIC com­pon­ents with their require­ments and trade-offs 
  • Deve­lop con­cepts for PIC com­pon­ents and eva­lua­te the­se using models and simulations 
  • Imple­ment lay­outs for com­pon­ents and full opti­cal cir­cuits on a PIC 
  • Simu­la­te full opti­cal PIC cir­cuits and match the results with experiments 
  • Collect the input you need from all sta­ke holders 
  • Mana­ge regu­lar tape outs of designs and the inter­ac­tion with the fab­ri­ca­ti­on team 
  • Keep the feed­back cycle going and impro­ve continuously 

Your profile

  • Mas­ter’s degree or Ph.D. in expe­ri­men­tal phy­sics, photonics, or a rela­ted field 
  • Hands-on expe­ri­ence with the design and/or simu­la­ti­on of com­pon­ents for PICs or full PICs 
  • Know­ledge of stan­dards tools and con­cept of the PIC indus­try (PDKs, IPKISS/Nazca/Synopsis/…) are a big plus 
  • Expe­ri­ence with Python is a big plus 
  • Open for an agi­le, inno­va­ti­ve and entre­pre­neu­ri­al environment 
  • Good lan­guage skills Eng­lish, Ger­man is a plus 

Your benefits

  • In our team-oriented working atmo­s­phe­re, you have fle­xi­ble opti­ons for working hours and can thus com­bi­ne your job and free time in the best pos­si­ble way. 
  • The inter­disciplinary team sup­ports you in your pro­fes­sio­nal and per­so­nal fur­ther education. 
  • Insight into the development of high-tech products.
