Career Development Partners
A Process Integration / Technology Development Engineer defines, develops and implements silicon process technology for the manufacture of integrated silicon devices. The successful candidate will be responsible for design rule definition, device architecture, process flow implementation, process module development, electrical characterization, and technology qualification for new silicon technology developments and transfers of existing silicon technologies in and out of the resident fab.
Primary Tasks, Duties, and Responsibilities:
o Define device architecture, technology design rules and electrical target specifications.
o Create technology process flows with process specifications.
o Process module development and characterization
o Define test structures for process integration and process module development.
o Design statistical experiments and analyze results to optimize device architecture and/or process modules.
o Coordinate process unit and process module development.
o Drive process and device optimization.
o Facilitate process improvements and/or fixes for problems of poor reliability or low yield.
o Support Process Engineering and Yield Engineering groups to improve process quality and yield of technologies released to manufacturing.

Position Requirements
o MS/PhD in Electrical Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Materials Engineering or related technical field, PhD preferred.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
