R&D Experienced RFIC Designer

Job Description

In this position, you will be joining the Next Generation Radio Integration Lab within Radio Circuits and Architectures of Intel Labs. The lab research activity focus on enabling integration of next generation radio transceivers in deeply-scaled CMOS technologies. We drive innovation in architectures, radio building-blocks and design methodologies to achieve beyond-state-of-the-art performance and maintain Moore's law scaling for both digital and RF/analog circuitry.

As an experienced R&D RFIC designer your responsibilities include but are not limited to: Research into new and improved transceiver architectures, including system aspects; Address next big challenges in transceiver design to enable next generation of wireless systems as 5G; Explore concepts for digital radio design to enable radio scaling and integration in deeply scaled technologies- Design, implement and validate RF/mixed-signal building blocks and transceivers

You must possess the below minimum qualifications to be initially considered for this position. Preferred qualifications are in addition to the minimum requirements and are considered a plus factor in identifying top candidates. Experience listed below would be obtained through relevant previous job and/or research experiences.

Minimum qualifications:
