Senior/Lead Electronics Engineer: analogue circuits for OLED displays

sharp-building

Sharp Laboratories of Europe develops world class technology for Sharp’s display and device products. The Emissive Displays group has a mission to create original technology for new-generation displays using organic LEDs (OLEDs) and quantum dot LEDs (QLEDs, QD-LEDs). This group is expanding, creating new opportunities for candidates to have a key R&D role with one of the world’s leading display manufacturers.

There is an opportunity for an experienced electronics engineer to take a senior role in our research team in Oxford which designs original circuits for thin film transistor (TFT) backplanes of OLED displays. This team’s responsibilities include inventing new ultra-small pixel circuits for high definition displays and new pixel circuits based on oxide TFTs (IGZO).

The successful candidate will:

  • lead the full development cycle for design of original TFT pixel circuits, including conception, optimisation, simulation, layout, experimental testing and patenting;
  • propose and explore research directions for disruptive improvements in performance of OLED backplanes;
  • liaise with colleagues in Sharp’s R&D and manufacturing divisions in Japan.

We are seeking highly motivated candidates who have:

  • Masters degree (2:1 or above) in Electronic Engineering or related subject (PhD preferred);
  • minimum of 3 years’ experience in transistor-level analogue / mixed-signal design and a track record creating original circuit designs which meet demanding specifications;
  • experience of industry-standard design tools (ideally Cadence® EDA software).

We are especially interested in hearing from candidates with:

  • experience in the full development cycle of transistor-level circuit design, circuit layout, experimental testing and design for manufacture techniques;
  • experience in transistor-level pixel circuit design for displays or sensors;
  • experience in simulation and layout of TFT circuits;
  • good understanding of the physics of semiconductor devices;
  • experience as an inventor in the patenting of analogue circuits;
  • strong publication and/or patent record showing evidence of creative and innovative R&D.

We offer excellent training and career development opportunities and a relocation and employment package that includes competitive salary, pension, life assurance and local amenity benefits.

Applicants should send their CV and covering letter to jobs@sharp.co.uk quoting reference SLE/TS.1807tft1
