Wafer Fab Process Engineers|
Wafer Fab Process Engineers are required by the Microcircuit Emulation Center at SRI International (formerly Sarnoff Corporation) to support the manufacturing of microcircuits (integrated circuits). Through SRI's Generalized Emulation of Microcircuits (GEM) program, the Microcircuit Emulation Center supplies form, fit, function, and interface replacements for obsolete microcircuits. This capability supports production, redesign, and sustainment requirements for the life of a weapon system. SRIís Microcircuit Emulation Center is a government-supported, U.S.-based Trusted foundry. These roles will be based in our Princeton, NJ location.
With experience in the semiconductor industry, an experienced process engineer responsibilities will include:
Hands-on process engineering to support low-volume, high-product mix microcircuit manufacturing and development.
Primary focus areas include Plasma Etch and Chemical Mechanical Polishing (CMP). Capability to support other process areas as required.
Sustaining, improving, and optimizing current processes to support operations.
Working with process engineers to integrate and develop manufacturable processes for existing and future technologies to enable yield improvement, defect reduction, improved reliability, and future technology development.
Working in cross functional teams (Integration, Design, and Layout) to address process issues.
Data collection, correlation, interpretation, and presentation of information to management and co-workers.
Must be able to work in a clean room environment for a significant part of the work day and perform flexible shift work when required.
Opportunities for progression within the group include process integration, production testing, design, and marketing.
Bachelorís degree in chemistry, physics, material science, or an equivalent field required
Minimum 3 years Wafer Fab processing engineering experience in areas of interest including Plasma Etch and/or CMP.
Experience working with Lam plasma dry etch systems and AMAT Mirra CMP systems is desired.
Ability to troubleshoot using analytical methodologies in a collaborative team effort across disciplines.
Process integration knowledge and experience is advantageous.
Computer programming skills are desired.
Due to Government requirements candidates must be a US Citizen or Permanent Resident.
We will consider new graduates with an appropriate degree and a desire to learn process engineering.
