Job Description and Requirements

We are seeking a talented R&D engineer to join Synopsys' TCAD team. You should have expertise in scientific computing and software development. You will develop mesh generation software for physics-based simulation platforms. This includes fast and accurate simulation of nano-scale semiconductor devices, interconnects and circuits consisting of many interconnected devices.

Our Sentaurus line of products are used by semiconductor corporations, research institutions, and universities worldwide. Products are used to design and simulate next generation semiconductor chips used in consumer products (phones, cameras, cars, etc.).

You will be part of a high-performing and collaborative R&D culture. We have a diverse experience and interests in software development and scientific computing. Join an imaginative and international work environment.

Primary responsibilities include:

  • Design and implementation of mesh generation software components
  • Computational geometry-based algorithms
  • Physics-based geometry modeling engines


  • PhD or MS in Computer Science, Engineering or Applied Mathematics
  • Experience developing 2D/3D mesh generation software
  • Solid design/programming skills in C++ and/or Python
  • Sound background in data structures and algorithms

Preferences: One or more of the following:

  • Experience with modern algorithms for the computational solution of partial differential equations
  • Experience developing FEM (finite element method) or FVM (finite volume method) analysis simulators in commercial and/or industrial/research lab settings
  • Background in computational geometry and applied mathematics
  • Parallel programming (TBB, OpenMP, MPI)
  • Understanding of structure generation using implicit or explicit methods.
  • Experience developing image processing algorithms (2D and 3D).

Our Silicon Design & Verification business is all about building high-performance silicon chips—faster. We’re the world’s leading provider of solutions for designing and verifying advanced silicon chips. And we design the next-generation processes and models needed to manufacture those chips. We enable our customers to optimize chips for power, cost, and performance—eliminating months off their project schedules.

At Synopsys, we’re at the heart of the innovations that change the way we work and play. Self-driving cars. Artificial Intelligence. The cloud. 5G. The Internet of Things. These breakthroughs are ushering in the Era of Smart Everything. And we’re powering it all with the world’s most advanced technologies for chip design and software security. If you share our passion for innovation, we want to meet you.
