Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (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 South Dakota and in locations around the world, including Canada, mountaintops in Arizona and Chile, and the South Pole
Fermilab seeks a highly motivated ASIC Development Engineer to join the Controls and Electronic Group in the Fermilab Quantum Institute (FQI). The selected candidate will lead and/or contribute to research activities and engineering work focused on deep cryogenic integrated circuit design for Quantum technologies.
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.
Deliver presentations internally, as well as national and international workshops, and at the topical conferences.
We Are Looking For
Ph.D. on M.S. in Electrical Engineering from an ABET accredited institution, Physics or other related field
Background in solid state circuits and integrated circuit design
5+ years (PhD) or 7+ years (MS) post-degree professional experience demonstrating past involvement in development of mixed analog-digital designs.

About Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory
What are we made of? How did the universe begin? What secrets do the smallest, most elemental particles of matter hold, and how can they help us understand the intricacies of space and time?Since 1967, Fermilab has worked to answer these and other fundamental questions and enhance our understanding of everything we see around us. As the United States' premier particle physics laboratory, we do science that matters. We work on the world's most advanced particle accelerators and dig down to the smallest building blocks of matter. We also probe the farthest reaches of the universe, seeking out the nature of dark matter and dark energy.Fermilab's 1,750 employees include scientists and engineers from all around the world. Fermilab collaborates with more than 50 countries on physics experiments based in the United States and elsewhere.Fermilab's 6,800-acre site is located in Batavia, Illinois, and is managed by the Fermi Research Alliance LLC for the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science. FRA is a partnership of the University of Chicago and Universities Research Association Inc., a consortium of 89 research universities.
