Senior ASIC Development Engineer

We Are: Fermilab is America's premier laboratory for particle physics and accelerator research, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. We support discovery science experiments in Illinois and at locations around the world, including deep underground mines in South Dakota and Canada, mountaintops in Arizona and Chile, and the South Pole. We are strategic risk takers, innovators and collaborators. We are engineers, scientists, technicians, administrative professionals. We are 1,800 employees advancing knowledge for the benefit of humankind. Fermilab has been at the forefront of particle physics for more than 40 years. We build world-leading accelerators and detectors to conduct some of the most advanced particle physics experiments possible. We collect and analyze the data from those experiments with some of the most powerful computers in the world. We conduct this research on a 6,800-acre prairie, 35 miles outside Chicago, a treasure that has been designated a National Environmental Research Park. Fermilab's ASIC Development Group in the Electrical Engineering Department of the Particle Physics Division seeks a motivated Senior ASIC Development Engineer to lead and/or contribute to research activities and engineering work focused on radiation detector instrumentation. You Will: Perform a leading role in mixed analog-digital ASIC design projects, while being able to contribute individually to major design tasks. Develop design specifications for ASICs based on theoretical analyses and in conjunction with application needs. Design circuitnetworks using schematic entry and layout tools with full-custom or timing-driven layout tools in Cadence CAD/EDA or a similar environment. Model circuitnetworks and system components in hardware-description languages (Verilog-A and Verilog/SystemVerilog) oriented on synthesis and place and route. Build test benches and carry out mixed analog and digitalcircuit simulations. Execute physical and functional circuit and system verification. Prepare documentation and participate in test-board designs and laboratory testing. The selected candidate will demonstrate good judgment, ability to lead a project, and should be motivated to carry out research activities focused on radiation detector instrumentation. The position includes delivering presentations internally, at national and international workshops, and at the topical conferences. We Are Looking For: PhD or MS in Electrical Engineering or Physics with background in solid state circuits and integrated circuit design 3+ years (PhD) or 5+ years (MS) post-degree professional experience demonstrating past involvement in development of mixed analog-digital designs Readiness for working on challenging projects that may have tight schedules Capability of working as part of a design team in a research and development environment Experience with modern front-end and back-end CAD/EDA design tools, such as Cadence and Mentor for the IC design Familiarity with principles of instrumentation for radiation detection with solid state or gaseous detectors and usages in extreme environments, like cryogenic or radiation harsh conditions Strong computer skills and competence in performing analytical engineering calculations, in drawing schematics and in documentation

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
