Introduction to the job
Join ASML Wilton today to receive your sign on bonus and relocation.
ASML US brings together the most creative minds in science and technology to develop lithography machines that are key to producing faster, cheaper, more energy-efficient microchips. We design, develop, integrate, market and service these advanced machines, which enable our customers - the world's leading chipmakers - to reduce the size and increase the functionality of their microchips, which in turn leads to smaller, more powerful consumer electronics. Our headquarters are in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, and we have 18 office locations around the United States including main offices in Chandler, Arizona, San Jose and San Diego, California, Wilton, Connecticut, and Hillsboro, Oregon.
This position requires access to controlled technology, as defined in the Export Administration Regulations (15 C.F.R. 730, et seq.). Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require ASML to proceed with candidates who are immediately eligible to access controlled technology.
Role and responsibilities
The Reticle Positioning Group, a division of ASML's Mechatronics and Measurement Department, in Wilton CT is seekinga Linear Motor designer in the Reticle Positioning MTD group of Mechatronics and Measurement US with concentration in deriving requirements, conceiving and analyzing options, and driving module level decisions as well as documenting system functionality and planning and performing test to verify performance.
This position will involve:
Ideation, modeling, analysis and design of advanced, custom, one-of-a-kind linear actuators to meet requirements for new products.
Predictions of extendibility of existing designs.
Participation in the manufacturing process development.
Root cause analysis of issues on older products.
Candidate will interface and work with other motor design experts, even overseas, to exchange knowledge and seek peer review.
Candidate will work with designers from supporting engineering disciplines (mechanical, electrical, controls, and supply chain engineers) and interface with manufacturers in order to converge on an overall design solution optimized for performance, cost, reliability, manufacturability, and serviceability.
Ideal candidate will also have experience in the integration of actuators in a full mechatronic module with considerations for dynamics and control.
Education and experience
Bachelor's Degree in mechanical or electrical engineering or physics with 5 or more years of related work experience with an emphasis on actuator design and modeling.
Master's Degree or PhD preferred.
Candidate should have direct experience in the conceptualization, architecture, analysis, numerical modeling and design of actuators (electro-magnetic force components, heat management components, power and cooling interfaces, etc)
Strong understanding of the fundamental theory of electromagnetism and heat flow, ability to develop quick numerical models to prove concepts.
Understanding of analysis and design of permanent magnets assemblies, magnetic circuits, electro-magnetic cross-talk and leakage, magnetostriction, 2D and 3D electro-magnetic modeling, actuator control (3 phase commutation, initialization) reluctance actuation, high power density heat dissipation systems and in-vacuum systems.
Candidate must have strong communicative skills with a commitment to achieving results on time.
Candidate must have a strong technical leadership and drive the development to a quality result.
Ability to interface with multidisciplinary groups and work effectively in a team.
Willingness to take on responsibility, follow through and keep multiple simultaneous assignments on schedule.
