Lead Principal GaN Device Expert (f/m/div)*.

 Are you ready to participate in the development of the next generation’s GaN Technologies? As the technology leader for power semiconductors, we are largely expanding our activities in the field of Gallium Nitride (GaN) power devices. That’s why we need you as a Lead Principal GaN Device Expert to join our team in Nijmegen and help us develop innovative solutions and explore the limits of technical feasibility. Do not miss the chance to become part of a team featuring a collaborative and hands-on environment. As a Lead Principal GaN Device Expert, you will join a team of global Device Experts in the Infineon CoolGaN R&D department and get firsthand responsibility in driving device technology development, contributing to creating an attractive work environment, growing the team competencies and skillset, and manage relationships with other experts in the Power & Sensor Systems (PSS) Division and external R&D partners.

In your new role you will:

  • Be a Device Architect for next-generation high-voltage, medium-voltage, or low-voltage e/d HEMT devices;
  • Team up with process integration to assess process and design limits of e/d HEMT designs;
  • As a TCAD expert work on the correlation of simulation and characterization to improve simulation deck calibration;
  • Work closely with industrial and scientific partners to assess new process modules, materials, and next-generation concepts.

 With your deep expertise and with your strong technical leadership skills you will be able to drive your team to success while respecting different attitudes and points of view. You like to take initiative and strive for continuous improvement with your interest in strong customer interfacing. Furthermore, you demonstrate strong communication skills and know-how to establish lasting relationships and networks.

You are best equipped for this task if you have:

  • A Master's degree in Electric Engineering, Physics with solid knowledge in semiconductor physics - Ph.D. is a plus;
  • At least 10 years of professional experience in TCAD power devices, preferably with solid GaN background;
  • Good understanding of semiconductor process integration and critical unit processes;
  • Good communication skills towards customer and internal interfaces and team members;
  • Fluency in English (mandatory).

Driving decarbonization and digitalization. Together.

Infineon designs, develops, manufactures, and markets a broad range of semiconductors and semiconductor-based solutions, focusing on key markets in the automotive, industrial, and consumer sectors. Its products range from standard components to special components for digital, analog, and mixed-signal applications to customer-specific solutions together with the appropriate software.
– Power & Sensor Systems (PSS) drives leading-edge power management, sensing, and data transfer capabilities –

The PSS division powers decarbonization and digitalization with a wide range of energy-efficient and digital solutions. PSS semiconductors help avoid carbon emissions, use resources sustainably, manage power effectively and intelligently, give ‘things’ smart senses, and process data quickly and reliably. The portfolio includes power, connectivity, RF, and sensor system technologies to develop smaller, lighter, smarter, and more efficient solutions for consumer devices, smart home/building applications, robotics, computing and data centers, charging devices, power tools, and much more.

The next generation of silicon and wide-bandgap (SiC and GaN) solutions provides unparalleled performance and reliability for 5G, big data, and renewable energy applications. These materials are paving the way for further energy and carbon savings. Highly precise XENSIV™ sensor solutions are enabling IoT devices to react intuitively to their surroundings for seamless user interactions while audio amplifiers bring exceptional sound experiences to smart speakers and other audio use cases.
