Job Description

In this position, you will be an intern in the IP, Design, and Platforms research team within Intel Labs. As an intern you will be researching and designing applied-electromagnetic components in reception and transmission of RF/mmW/THz signals on silicon, package, and/or PCB. You will perform electromagnetic-circuit modeling, simulation, and analysis to answer research questions, validating assumptions, and evaluating performance of the EM-circuit co-designs computationally and experimentally to enable new technologies and expand existing capabilities across a wide range of applied electromagnetic technologies on various application platforms.

The ideal candidate should exhibit the following behavioral traits:

  • Good analytical skills
  • Open-ended-problem solving skills
  • Independent work ethic and intuitive thinking is required.
  • Team player with excellent written and verbal communication skills.
