Imaging and Computer Vision Engineer

Updated: 2 months ago
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 22 Aug 2022

Develop and implement vision software to acquire images/videos from various computational imaging systems, analyse videos and images and contribute to prototype & product development

Within the imec Solutions department, we build application-oriented prototypes around unique imec chip-level technology. Together with the component experts, we innovate at the system level to bring these imec technologies to the next level and to bridge the gap between research and industry. A system here is composed of an innovative microchip or sensor, combined with custom or off-the-shelf electronics, optics, mechanics, fluidics and both embedded and application specific algorithms and control software. Our mission is to demonstrate and validate these systems in a relevant environment and generate valuable data for our customers. We are building a multidisciplinary team that has expertise in system engineering, mechanics, electronics, optics, software, product development and quality systems.

Some examples of applications are:

  • COVID-19 breathalyzer
  • Alzheimer’s Disease, through the eyes of a hyperspectral camera
  • imec hyperspectral
  • lens free microscopy
  • Latest Neuropixels probes can track neurons over weeks

We are looking for an imaging specialist/computer vision engineer with a strong background in computer vision and image processing techniques to join our team in Leuven. You will work together with various sub-system development teams to keep the technical overview up to date and highlight system performance and risks accordingly.
