ASIC Designer

Job ID 1933 Date posted 10/28/2019

Brookhaven National Laboratory is a multipurpose research institution funded primarily by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science. Located on the center of Long Island, New York, Brookhaven Lab brings world-class facilities and expertise to the most exciting and important questions in basic and applied science—from the birth of our universe to the sustainable energy technology of tomorrow. We operate cutting-edge large-scale facilities for studies in physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, applied science, and a wide range of advanced technologies. The Laboratory's almost 3,000 scientists, engineers, and support staff are joined each year by more than 4,000 visiting researchers from around the world. Our award-winning history, including seven Nobel Prizes, stretches back to 1947, and we continue to unravel mysteries from the nanoscale to the cosmic scale, and everything in between. Brookhaven is operated and managed by Brookhaven Science Associates, which was founded by the Research Foundation for the State University of New York on behalf of Stony Brook University, and Battelle, a nonprofit applied science and technology organization.

Instrumentation Division

The Instrumentation Division is engaged in the development of ASICs for particle detectors, high resolution X- and gamma-ray spectrometers, high-rate photon counters and imagers, with applications in large DOE and international user facilities and elsewhere.  These ASICs operate with multi-element, solid-state, liquid, and gas sensors, at room and cryogenic temperatures. 

The Division has an opening for an experienced ASIC Designer.  The ideal candidate will be an Electronic Engineer/Scientist/Physicist with relevant experience in microelectronics, specifically high-performance integrated circuits.

The position will involve application of knowledge on sensor modeling, signal and noise in circuits, equivalent noise charge, low-noise amplifiers, charge amplifier design, input transistor optimization, high-order filters, time-domain analysis, time-variant and time-invariant filters, analog and digital signal processing, peak detection, timing measurements and layout techniques.

  • Requires a bachelor's degree in an engineering discipline or closely related field of study.
  • Minimum seven (7) years progressively responsible related work experience that demonstrates a sound knowledge of current principles and practices in a specialized field of engineering.
  • Experience in microelectronics with track record of developing state-of-the-art integrated circuits in CMOS technologies.

  • Experience in developing electronics as part of a team for scientific applications.

  • Experience with Cadence design tools for schematics design (analog/mixed-signal/digital), time and frequency-domain simulation on circuit performance (power, gain, noise, and stability), physical design (layout), verification, and extraction for post-layout simulation (analog/mixed-signal/digital) and digital logic design.

Preferred Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:

  • Master's Degree in Electronic Engineering, Physics or related discipline.

  • Experience with design and measurement of low-noise integrated circuits for scientific instrumentation.

  • Experience with multi-laboratory collaborations.
  • The selected candidate will be placed at the appropriate level based on their experience.
