  • Works with semiconductor processing equipment to research, develop, and optimize unit processes focused on the deposition of Epitaxial films
  • Designs and conducts experiments, in addition to measuring and interpreting experimental output and aimed at fulfilling stated objectives using DOEs
  • Participates in and drives technical problem-solving sessions using the scientific method and industry tools
  • Senior Process Engineers work with customers and marketing to understand and define requirements in order to successfully execute and document customer demonstrations
  • Provides process results-based insight to engineering towards the improvement of the product (process performance, reliability, and other critical HVM criteria)
  • Develops methods and techniques for integrating Epitaxial films into existing and future device technologies
  • Produces technical papers on process, equipment, device integration improvement strategies, and presents to professional audience


  • Bachelor's, Master's or PhD degree in Chemical Engineering, Materials Science, Electrical Engineering, or Physics
  • 8-10+ years in the semiconductor/equipment process and manufacturing industry
  • Ability to characterize/analyze the films for their physical and electrical properties (such as XRD, XRR, SIMS, 4-point probe, Hall measurements, SEM & TEM, etc.)
  • Experience in developing new films for emerging applications and experience in chemistry/materials characterization
  • Ability to comprehend the film requirements of customers and applying that knowledge to develop epitaxial solutions towards meeting the technical criteria and HVM requirements
  • Understanding of semiconductor Epitaxial film deposition processes, associated characterization, and analysis of film properties
  • Demonstrated ability to develop and characterize deposition processes using first principles and experimental design techniques (e.g., DOE)
  • Establishing correlation between process results and the Epi tool towards optimizing the process, meeting HVM requirements is a highly desired
  • Knowledge and hands-on experience with plasma-based chemistries for the deposition of films for semiconductor applications and surface modification is highly desired
  • Knowledge of plasma physics and concepts as it relates to deposition processes is a plus
  • Experience in any of the following would be a plus; CVD, PVD, ALD, etc.
