Job Description

Are you looking for lab work and project ownership that ties chemical interactions and kinetics with surface science to advanced semiconductor manufacturing and heterogeneous integration? Then come join our multi-disciplinary team in the Assembly Prototyping Lab within the Assembly and Test Technology Development (ATTD) group at Intel. We collaborate with research, manufacturing and product teams to build and prototype tomorrow's future products, often making that deemed impossible possible.

In this role you will be responsible for enabling advanced etches, cleans and surface treatments to selectively remove or functionalize nanometer to micron thick patterned or continuous layers with low defectivity using wet chemistries and state-of-the-art equipment.

You will be responsible for detailed process understanding, including but not limited to

  • Semiconductor fabrication methods and impact on material structures or solubility
  • Detailing chemical or surface reaction dynamics or kinetics and validating with experiment
  • Spectroscopic and surface analysis techniques
  • Design of representative experiments, including characterization and analysis to drive data-driven conclusions
  • Working with equipment and material vendors to account for variabilities in tool operation or material supply

The candidate should also exhibit the following behavior traits and/or skills:

  • Attention to detail
  • A learning pre-disposition and desire to connect observation with chemical/physical fundamentals
  • Initiative, resourcefulness and ability to work independently
  • Clear communication skills
  • Ability to plan and act when faced with ambiguity
  • Planning and execution to timeline

You will work within a team, but have clear, individual project deliverables with time-constraints that support the success of the team.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Possess a PhD with 3+ years of experience or MS with 5+ years experience in Chemistry, Polymer Chemistry, Polymer Science, and/or Polymer Physics, Chemical Engineering or relevant field
  • Must have the required degree by February 2022

3+ years of experience with one or more of the following:

  • Wet chemistry and/or etches and cleans and/or surface chemistry
  • Micro- and/or Nano-fabrication processes and analytical methods
  • Surface characterization and surface reaction kinetics and dynamics
  • Design, analysis and interpretation of comprehensive experiments with control legs

Preferred Qualifications:
6+ months of experience with one or more of the following:

  • Small and/or large macromolecule or polymer systems
  • Fluid-flow and/or molecular dynamic modeling/simulations
  • Familiarity with plasma etches and/or surface treatments
  • Working and running equipment in a clean-room environment
  • Working and excelling within a cross-disciplinary team

Requirements listed would be obtained through a combination of industry relevant job experience, internship experiences and or schoolwork/classes/research.
