EDUCATION DESIRED: B.S., M.S., or M.Eng. in physics, electrical engineering, computer science, mathematics, or computer engineering with strong emphasis on device physics, wafer characterization, data analysis, and computer software tools used in the semiconductor micro-fabrication industry.
ESSENTIAL JOB FUNCTIONS: Perform DC and RF characterization of various silicon and III/V semiconductor technologies on manual and semi-automated on wafer test stations. Store, analyze, and retrieve in-line process and electrical characterization data using various software platforms in conjunction with a relational database system. Interact with cleanroom process engineers, test engineers, and senior technical staff to consolidate information and create presentation quality reports.
EXPERIENCE DESIRED: Experience with semiconductor characterization equipment (SMUs, capacitance meters, switch matrices, network analyzers, wafer probers, etc.); statistical analysis methods using software tools such as JMP, MATLAB, and EXCEL; and interacting with and configuring SQL databases. Semiconductor device modeling (Silvaco or ISE), simulation (Spectre or ADS), and CAD layout (Cadence or Mentor Graphics) is a plus.
KNOWLEDGE DESIRED: Knowledge of general semiconductor device and micro-fabrication principles. Candidate must be able to interpret basic device data and correlate experimental results with device performance and behavior. Knowledge of software tools used for modeling, analysis, and data collection (MATLAB, JMP) in the Microsoft Windows or UNIX operating systems. Knowledge of on-wafer temperature testing is a plus. Experience with cryogenics is a plus.
ESSENTIAL PHYSICAL/MENTAL REQUIREMENTS: Must be able to work safely in laboratory settings including device testing and Class 10 clean room facilities. Good verbal and written skills to work with a large cross section of personnel.
SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS: U.S. citizenship required. The ability to obtain and maintain a DoD security clearance is required.
