Are you ready to be the one who will start a scientific revolution? If yes, then this job is made for you...


As an Ultrasound/Acoustic Metrology Researcher you will:

  1. You will be involved in the research and development (R&D) of the next generation ultrasound imaging systems for metrology applications.
  2. You are also able to translate the customer needs in acoustic metrology.
  3. You will be trusted to recommend design changes or substitution of materials when appropriate.
  4. You will also advise users of appropriate actions to correct malfunctions and may recommend changes in user procedures.
  5. You will report directly to the CTO;
  6. Develop metrology concepts based on ultrasound/acoustic imaging and detection. By theoretical analysis and simulations (including wave propagation simulations in FEM and MATLAB), design and building working prototypes, you show how the Proof-of-Concept and address technical challenges of our customers;
  7. Research into high-resolution ultrasound/acoustic imaging devices and sensors and research in building experimental set-ups for proof-of-concept of acoustic metrology for the envisioned applications.


You will work shoulder-to-shoulder with the most creative minds in science and  technology to develop a revolutionary high throughput atomic force microscopy a system enabling atom-scale resolution 3D metrology at industry-level throughput, based on three pillars:

  • Unrivaled measurement speed;
  • Parallelization capability;
  • Advanced measurement modes.

You will develop a revolutionary machine which will certainly be a turning point for the future of science.
