Job Description

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.

The Fermilab Particle Physics Division advances the understanding of matter, energy, space and time by managing resources and providing support for researchers who conduct scientific research at the intensity, energy, and cosmic frontiers of high energy physics. Our many departments include the Astrophysics Department, the Detector Development and Operations Department, the engineering departments, and the Theoretical Physics Department. Our research programs cover all areas of experimental and theoretical particle physics. Our current experiments include CMS, DUNE, Muon g-2, SeaQuest, and the Dark Energy Survey.

Fermilab's ASIC Development Group in the Electrical Engineering Department of the Particle Physics Division seeks a motivated 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 circuit networks using schematic entry and layout tools with full-custom or timing-driven layout tools in Cadence CAD/EDA or a similar environment.
  • Model circuit networks 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 digital circuit 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

Physical Activity and Work Conditions

Human Factors: Sitting, Visually Demanding (extensive computer use), Mental Concentration, Tight Deadlines

Diverse people. Diverse jobs. Great science.
Fermilab is America's particle physics and accelerator laboratory.
Fermilab is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Minorities/Women/Disabled/Veterans are encouraged to apply.
