In this growing R&D activity, we are currently looking for an R&D program manager to lead our microsystems activity. Focus will be on acoustic, and in particular ultrasound, transducers with optical read out or produced in large area, i.e. in display fab environment. As representative example of the latter, you can here read about based on our ultrasound transducer technology platforms.
As program manager you will have the responsibility to define and manage the research roadmap on microsystem technologies addressing multiple physical domains, e.g. P-sensors, T-sensors,... , specifically for acoustics, e.g. ultrasound transducers, and grow the project portfolio. Furthermore, you will also have project management responsibility. You will actively engage with customers (from public and private sectors) to understand the system needs, from which you will derive the required technology developments.
