PTD Module Engineers are responsible for leading scientific research and enabling manufacture of innovative device architectures coupled with the realization of these architectures. Responsibilities include designing, executing and analyzing experiments necessary to meet critical specifications for their process.
A Module Engineer participates in the development of intellectual property and the development of the equipment necessary to exploit understanding gained in research (in collaboration with equipment suppliers.) The Engineer must work effectively with the equipment supplier to identify shortcomings, propose and evaluate hardware modification to mitigate issues and operate the manufacturing line in order to integrate the many individual steps necessary for the manufacture of complex microprocessors.
Module Engineers are also responsible for overseeing in-situ ramp to manufacturing volumes to demonstrate that the technology meets requirements while simultaneously transferring the technology to counterparts in manufacturing via 'Copy Exactly!' methodology. Module ownership includes the install and qualification of manufacturing capacity at the development site and audit installation/qualification and supervision of first full loop at the production site.
Must hold a PhD.
Ph.D. candidates in all Physics disciplines are encouraged to apply. Criteria for selection include: a strong academic record, demonstrated experimental and data analysis expertise, superior critical thinking skills, an ability to drive and take responsibility for projects and a solid peer-reviewed publication record. Experience using and maintaining scientific equipment is preferred, but not required. Semiconductor processing experience is not mandatory.
As the world's largest chip manufacturer, Intel strives to make every facet of semiconductor manufacturing state-of-the-art -- from semiconductor process development and manufacturing, through yield improvement to final test and optimization. Employees in the Logic Technology Development Division of Intel's Technology and Manufacturing group are an integral part of a worldwide network of engineering expertise and cutting edge manufacturing facilities.
