Unit Process Patterning Insulator Development Engineer - SUNY Polytechnic Institute

Albany, NY, US


JOB TYPE: Permanent, FullTime

Location: Albany, NY Category: Professional Posted On: Tue Apr 9 2019 Job Description:

Job responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

+ SUNY Poly is seeking applicants for the position of Patterning Insulator Process Engineer to work in its 300mm semiconductor development facilities. This position is responsible for equipment qualification, advanced insulator process development, evaluation, and characterization targeting advanced semiconductor applications down to the 7nm node and beyond. This individual will be responsible for the development of insulator film processes and structures, as well as specialty defect and material characterization, in support of R&D efforts for internal and external customers. The individual must develop and characterize processes compatible with advanced CVD and PECVD technologies, as well as conventional oxide/nitride films. This individual will need to contribute to semiconductor hands on fabrication of process development projects to advance new products from concept phase thru manufacturing phase.

+ Thorough equipment and process qualification of new 300mm insulator materials specific to (FEOL), (MOL) and (BEOL), dielectric films and compounds. As well as patterning and advance lithography image transfer methodologies. Work focuses on tool ownership in some cases and process development through experimental matrices to determine best known methods for deposition of a wide variety of materials for dielectric and hard mask pattern transfer applications. Engineer should have experience with deposition methods that include chemical vapor deposition (CVD), Plasma enhance chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) as well as a familiarity with and LPCVD, ALD and PVD applications. Also familiarity with pattern transfer is a plus. Should also be familiar with material characterization using analysis from such techniques as XRD, TEM, EDS, SIMS, Auger, AFM, and thickness/resistance measurements.

+ Applicant should be aware of FEOL and BEOL semiconductor integration schemes, in addition to knowledge and experience in device fabrication. Lot ownership that achieves fast cycles of learning is required. The successful applicant must be able to interface effectively with fab operations, process maintenance, and semiconductor engineering professionals from client companies.

+ The candidate must execute project based tasks that include process development, integration and metrology/characterization of materials working side-by-side with a diverse group of engineers. Assume ownership and accountability for successful completion of projects and programs. Report results both internally and externally with presentation and formal report packages. Interact with other engineers in areas of design, deposition, fabrication and test to facilitate fabrication and device optimization. Insulator and patterning image transfer within 300mm fabrication line.

+ Other reasonable duties as assigned.

Job Requirements:

B.S. degree in Chemical Engineering, Materials Science, Physics, or equivalent Engineering and/or Science discipline from a college or University accredited by the USDOE or internationally recognized accrediting organization with preferred 5 + years of experience working in the semiconductor industry as a Process Development Engineer in one or more areas of insulator deposition and or pattern transfer technology.

OR M.S. degree in Chemical Engineering Materials Science, Physics, or equivalent Engineering and/or Science discipline from a college or University accredited by the USDOE or internationally recognized accrediting organization with preferred 2 + years of experience working in the semiconductor industry as a Process Development Engineer in one or more areas of insulator deposition and or pattern transfer technology.

A good understanding of BEOL and FEOL integration - particularly as related to insulators and patterning schemes - is preferred. Candidate must have good oral and written communication skills, exhibit solid leadership ability, be familiar with SPC/DOE methodologies, and be willing to execute a variety of tasks on short notice. Good program management and customer interface skills are preferred. Knowledge of MS Office, DOE, and yield/defectivity analysis software are strongly recommended.

SUNY Poly is a multi-client, consortium environment, and the successful individual must demonstrate excellent communication, interpersonal, and organizational skills. Ability to work well under pressure and in a fast-paced environment is a must. Candidates must address in their applications their ability to work with culturally diverse populations. This position is contingent on the satisfactory completion of a background check; this position may require annual background checks.

Preferred Qualifications:

+ Working knowledge of SiView

+ Familiarity and experience with Applied Materials deposition platforms related to both FEOL and BEOL applications

+ Familiarity and experience with FEOL, MOL and BEOL applications

+ Applications related to CMOS and memory applications.

+ Material characterization and material properties specific to application and technology.
