Research Engineer - Semiconductor Device Fabrication

SRI International Princeton , NJ 08544

Posted 2 months ago

Job Description:

SRI International's Advanced Technology and Systems Division (ATSD) performs research across a wide range of disciplines - from novel materials to advanced optical, radar, and surveillance systems, transitioning technology from basic R&D to fieldable prototypes.

Our SRI campus in Princeton, NJ has an immediate opening for a Research Engineer within ATSD to support the growth of our activities related to compound semiconductor devices, including novel photo-detection systems, and advanced electronic, photonic and optoelectronic devices. The position will be very hands-on, and part of a close-knit team of applied physicists and engineers working on leading-edge R&D projects to realize proof-of-concept demonstrations for our government and commercial customers. While the position is primarily for activity within a wafer fabrication cleanroom suite, the candidate will be involved in full span including design, fabrication, implementation and characterization of advanced devices and prototype systems.

The candidate must have familiarity with common cleanroom practices and semiconductor device characterization techniques. The candidate should have hands-on cleanroom experience, for example within university research labs, external co-op/internships, or prior employment. The candidate should be able to contribute at the individual level, with expected guidance from more senior group members.

Qualifications

  • Bachelor or Master's degree in Electrical Engineering, Materials Science, Physics/Applied Physics or equivalent. Relevant post-degree experience highly desirable.

  • U.S. Citizenship required.

  • Experience in semiconductor wafer processing, which may include epitaxial growth, in a cleanroom environment

  • Experience with hands-on wafer processing which could include photolithography, dielectric deposition and etching, metal deposition, contact anneal, etc.

  • Hands-on multi-step process development and implementation

  • Sufficient familiarity with processing equipment to be able to perform preventative maintenance and system calibrations

  • Skilled in common lab measurement equipment and techniques

  • Basic experience characterizing/testing electronic, photonic or semiconductor devices

  • Basic knowledge of electronics and machine shop skills a plus

  • Mask layout or packaging experience a plus, as would be programming experience for instrumentation and data analysis (e.g. Matlab, Labview, C++, etc)

Intangibles

  • Detail-oriented

  • Strong written and verbal communications skills

  • Able to work in a team environment

  • Self-motivated

  • Must possess a results-oriented approach
