Here are the current opportunities at IBM Research – Almaden in San Jose, California to extend the frontier of computing:
- Research Scientist (Master’s/PhD degree)
- Logic Design/RTL Hardware Engineer (Bachelor’s/Master’s degree, Master’s/PhD degree)
- Physical Chip Design Hardware Engineer (Bachelor’s/Master’s degree, Master’s/PhD degree)
- Verification/Logic Design Hardware Engineer (Bachelor’s/Master’s degree, Master’s/PhD degree)
- Software Engineer – C++ simulation (Bachelor’s degree, Master’s degree)

Working since 2004, IBM’s Brain-Inspired Computing team at IBM Research – Almaden is a pioneer in neuromorphic computing.
The project has received ~$85 million in research funding from DARPA (under SyNAPSE Program), US Department of Defense, US Department of Energy, and commercial customers.
Our team has built TrueNorth (a first-of-a-kind modular, scalable, non-von Neumann, ultra-low power, cognitive computing architecture), associated end-to-end software ecosystem, and many systems. TrueNorth and its ecosystem are in the hands of ~200 researchers at ~45 institutions on five continents.
The team has been recognized with the Misha Mahowald Prize, ACM Gordon Bell Prize, R&D 100 Award, Best Paper Awards at ASYNC and IDEMI conferences, and First Place, Science/NSF International Science & Engineering Visualization Contest. TrueNorth has been inducted into the Computer History Museum.
Our papers have been published in Science, Communications of the ACM, PNAS, amongst many other venues. Our work has been featured in The Economist, Science, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, BBC, CNN, PBS, PBS NOVA, Discover, MIT Technology Review, Associated Press, Communications of the ACM, IEEE Spectrum, Forbes, Fortune, Time, amongst many other media outlets.
