Metrology is a great place to work with a friendly environment. You will have a chance to work on material from all other departments of the FAB since Metrology supports all unit parts and other groups (PIE, Device team, QA, FA, and MFG). Metrology is to provide support to the fab with accurate and precise measurement data.
Metrology has several great experienced teams (THK, CON, OCD, CD, VM, IM) that work together, and this creates many opportunities to work with state-of-the-art equipment and to utilize very innovative measurement techniques. This environment will help you accelerate your experience and knowledge so that you can have a strong contribution to the team and company.
This opening is for a OCD (Optical Critical Dimensions) Applications Engineer or Scientist, specifically focusing on engineering analysis, 3D FinFET OCD modeling, troubleshooting/resolving issues daily in a factory environment, providing strong customer service to internal and external customers, decision making, daily tool health and monitoring, automating routine tasks, improving BKMs (best known methods) and recipe setup for new & old devices. Candidate must be able to run Design of Experiment (DoE) and analyze the data to achieve the best solution.
The OCD/Virtual Metrology/Integrated Metrology team provides some of the most critical measurements for device performance and quality, so your contribution will be counted on at every step.
Metrology engineers and experienced application technicians will train you step by step so please be a part of our fun and exciting team!
SAS is focused on being the World's Best Foundry product supplier.
