Introduction

Are you our new skilled creative brain who goes the extra mile to solve the most challenging complex issues and helps us fulfill our technological and manufacturing roadmap? If so, we are looking for you!
Within ASML the business line EUV is responsible for the development of ASML EUV scanner and source. The wafer clamping group is responsible for the development and delivery of qualified electrostatic clamps which clamp the wafer onto the wafer stage. Wafer clamps are crucial to make lithography happen against the ever demanding specs on overlay, focus, and throughput while ensuring high availability.

Job Mission

As a technical specialist in the EUV wafer clamping group you are our self-propelling technical motor who contributes to a fundamental understanding of our clamping function, generates solutions to complex and challenging technical issues, and gives direction to new wafer clamping designs and concepts.

Job Description

As an applied physics developer for electrostatic wafer clamping you :

  • Interact with a team of 10-15 professionals on the technical side in the field of Physics and Electronics.
  • Shape the roadmap 5+ years ahead for ASML EUV clamping functionality.
  • Use high end and latest technology to direct investigations.
  • Creatively look for solutions generating intellectual property in the field of clamping functionality.
  • Are responsible for building required test equipment and methodologies to create design guidelines in the feasibility phases of new products.
  • Expand the fundamental knowledge on wafer clamping behavior.
  • Create, maintain and expand a multi-disciplinary knowledge network.
  • Are able to link theory from physics and engineering to generate concrete solutions for existing issues and new designs.

Education

Master or PhD in Applied Physics, Electronics, Optics, Biomedical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering.

Experience

  • 5+ year work experience in a fundamental and experimental research and development environment in high tech industry.
  • Reliability engineering and manufacturing techniques, preferably on glass and ceramics.
  • Creating experimental measurement setups and executing design of experiments.
  • Experience with MATLAB, LabVIEW, Finite Element Method (COMSOL and Ansys).
  • Vacuum technology, electrostatics and surface technology knowledge.

Personal skills

  • Self-propelling.
  • Creative and curious.
  • Motivational to others.
  • Loyal and committed.
  • Drive to understand and explain complex matters.
  • Concise.
  • Excellent knowledge networker: building bridges between people of different disciplines.
  • Pragmatic.

Context of the position

The wafer clamping group is part of the mechanical development cluster and is responsible to develop and deliver qualified electrostatic clamps which clamp the wafer onto the wafer stage of the scanner. Wafer clamps are crucial to make lithography happen against the ever demanding specs on overlay, focus, and throughput while ensuring high availability. The holder of this position reports to the Group Lead Wafer Clamping.

Other information

We offer you a position in a team that consists of skilled, motivated people that have a passion for technology. At ASML we push capabilities of our technology to the level that is considered to be impossible by external experts. We also have a huge drive to truly understand what’s physically happening on the nanometer scale that we are examining. Though we stay pragmatic as our customers need real solutions, not just theories. Do you see yourself in this picture?
