Your New Position 

We are looking for a like-minded experienced Device Process Engineer to work at our state-of-the-art research and development facility alongside some of the finest scientists in the world.   This key senior role will work closely to support and collaborate with the Chief Scientist during daily routines and to define, qualify and maintain compound semiconductor process equipment and related laboratory tools.  Furthermore, you will be responsible for setting up, developing and optimising new and existing compound semiconductor device fabrication processes and developing and sustaining proof-of-concept level device fabrication and integration process flow.

Being successful in this role will mean that you will support the development of UVC LED’s and Power Devices through working in a close-knit team and be responsible for operating and optimizing the processing modules for:

  • Direct write photolithography: run existing processes and create and implement designs using a Heidelberg laser direct write tool.
  • Photoresist process: run existing equipment and optimize processes for photoresist coat, bake and development; and optimize bilayer photoresist processes suitable for metal lift-off.
  • Metal lift-off: run existing metal lift-off equipment
  • E-beam deposition: operate reliably a high power e-beam deposition process for Ti, Al, Ni and Mo
  • Plasma etch: operate existing etch processes and optimize processes for Cl2 and BCL2 etch
  • Thin film and patterned wafer characterization: experience in ellipsometry, reflectometry, XRD, AFM, CD measurements and other metrology techniques

About You 

To be successful in this role, you will be degree qualified in Electrical/Electronics Engineering, Physics or equivalent, coupled with at least eight years of experience working in a semiconductor production environment.   Experience working in a class 100 clean room with the above listed processes combined with a strong understanding of tool operation, periodic maintenance and a deep understanding of process development will be required. Ideally your experience will include technology transfer of developmental processes and equipment to volume manufacturing.

Your aptitude to solve complex problems will fit you well into this role.

Amongst your many personable attributes, you will be proactive, analytical, with a keen eye for detail and thrive on working with others to solve technically challenging problems.  You are self-motivated, and able to work effectively with others as well as independently with the assigned task; and be able to work well under pressure and to tight timelines.
