Materials Research Engineer
Posted on: March 18, 2023
Intel strives to make every facet of semiconductor manufacturing state-of-the-art from semiconductor process development and manufacturing, through yield improvement to packaging, final test and optimization, with world class supply chain and facilities support.
Employees in the Technology Development group are part of a worldwide network of design, research, development, manufacturing, and assembly/test facilities, all focused on utilizing the power of Moore's Law to bring smart, connected devices to every person on Earth. Within our Technology Development group, the Components Research (CR) group's mission is to invent and demonstrate revolutionary process and packaging technologies that enable Intel's product leadership.
The Intel Components Research group is seeking a Materials Research Engineer to join our team. The successful candidate will be expected to:
Demonstrate a safety-first attitude in all types and phases of work
Be responsible for the development of materials to meet program needs - often on short timelines with limited resources:o Demonstrate a thorough understanding of the electroplating deposition, including growth mechanisms and the impact of additives on the process.o Be proficient with standard semiconductor measurement techniques (AFM, ellipsometry, optical profilometry, SEM, SIMS, XPS, XRD, XRF, XRR etc.) needed to quantify material properties and discriminate between varying process inputs.o Be an expert in experimental design and interpretation.o Ability to make well-reasoned decisions with limited data.
Engage semiconductor tool and material ecosystems to drive key engagements in support of Components Research programs.
Be an active member of Components Research's external engagements team, engaging with universities, national labs, semiconductor consortia and vendors to identify and establish new research opportunities.
The candidate will be expected to role model Intel cultural attributes and exhibit the following behavioral traits:
Technical innovation and a drive to deliver results for complex, time critical technical projects.
Self-starter with dedication to continual learning.
Ability to contribute to fast moving teams with a wide variety of skills and personalities.
Attention to detail.
Excellent presentation skills.
Strong communication skills.

6+ months of experience with the following (having more than one will be preferred):- Developing/maintaining electroplating processes.- Developing/maintaining electroplating process hardware.- Materials selection to improve electroplating processes.- Application of critical analytical techniques to overcome process challenges.- Project development in a team environment.
Thorough understanding of how to monitor and control electroplating processes (thickness, particles, stress, resistivity, composition, uniformity across complex and varied structure etc.).Electrodeposition experience with dual-damascene and/or through silicon vias.
Working knowledge of standard semiconductor processes (PVD, etch, clean, CMP, lithography, etc.) and their interactions with electroplated films.
Ability to modify electroplating film properties to improve ease of integration.
Familiarity with electrical test metrics and integration schemes.
Experienced with automating common tasks within automation systems.
Previous experience in running vendor research collaborations.
Willingness to work in a flexible environment which will involve working from the fab, lab, office, home and from vendor sites as required.
Willingness to travel domestically and internationally
