Job description

Would you like to participate in an international scientific environment, and together with colleagues create the best electronic designs for challenging projects?

The Radboud TechnoCentre and the Department of High Energy Physics are looking for an electronics engineer for data acquisition, measurement and control systems with a special interest in field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs).
You will support students, postdoctoral researchers and other academic staff in their research by means of technical advice and concrete proposals. This may result in designs of instruments or even complete measurement and control systems in cooperation with scientists. Designs can be at PCB level or at system level using commercial solutions or a combination of commercial and scientific solutions. You will be responsible for the design, realisation and commissioning procedures.
As FPGAs are becoming more and more important in modern designs, you need to have at least some basic knowledge of, and some experience in, FPGA design and you should be willing to develop yourself into an experienced designer and programmer of real-time embedded electronics as a sub-task.


Radboud University


  • Bachelor's or Master's degree in electrical engineering or equivalent.
  • Experience with embedded systems (preferably Xilinx (Zynq) FPGA, microcontroller, Petalinux).
  • Experience with developing mixed signal electronics.
  • Knowledge of high-speed electronics and real-time signal processing.
  • Experience with software engineering, VHDL, C, C++, Python.
  • Experience with Vivado/Vitis is a plus.

Conditions of employment

Fixed-term contract: 1 year, with the possibility of permanent.

  • Employment: 0.8 - 1.0 FTE.
  • A maximum gross monthly salary of € 4,402 based on a 38-hour working week (salary scale 10).

  • Duration of the contract: 1 year, with the possibility of permanent.
  • You will be able to use our Dual Career and Family Care Services. Our Dual Career and Family Care Officer can assist you with family-related support, help your partner or spouse prepare for the local labour market, provide customized support in their search for employment  and help your family settle in Nijmegen.
