Introduction

Are you inspired to contribute improving today’s chip manufacturing yield? Are you challenged by demanding projects in a multidisciplinary context? Do you have the capabilities and the drive to provide effective solutions to complex technical problems under challenging time constraints? Are you able to manage the gap between patterning performance on wafer and what is needed for our customers to achieve high device yield?
Please contact us today. We currently have an opportunity for a Patterning/Imaging Control Engineer in the On Product Performance Patterning group.

Job Mission

As an Patterning/Imaging Control Engineer you will be a key player in developing applications to make the wafer pattern performance meet our customer’s demands. You will be responsible for predicting, trouble-shooting and optimizing the patterning performance on actual product wafers.

Job Description

To meet customer’s demands, ASML develops control applications that optimize wafer performance by tuning scanner and other knobs. To do this successfully we need to be able to characterize the pattern variation and to link this to possible tuning knobs. The better we can control the pattern fidelity, the better the performance of our customer’s chips are.


You will need to develop expertise in how manufacturing processes influence patterning performance with focus on Litho Imaging and Etch. Furthermore, it is important to understand how modeling and measurement artefacts may influence your data and your conclusions. You will need to understand why and how patterning performance affects device performance.
You are expected to create test plans and DOEs, carry out data analyses, report results and draw conclusions. Interfacing with clients, other projects, marketing, customer support and customers themselves, is expected!


You will be part of a group of people with similar competencies, working together to lift their know-how to new levels year-after-year, making sure to be prepared for challenges ahead. You will contribute to roadmaps and competence management plans.

In our group there are various possibilities, amongst which:
- Development of new solutions by doingfeasibility studies at imec and/or at customer.
- Supporting product delivery by defining requirementsfor improved control functionalities, qualifying and assessing our new products and facilitating an effective transfer to ASML’s customer supportgroup or to customers themselves.
- Participating in Node Transition Projects(NTP) with our customers. In these projects we help the customer toprepare for new nodes by identifying, measuring, and solving futureperformance limitations.

Working at ASML as an Patterning/Imaging Control Engineer is about being part of a dynamic, fast-paced community, facing unprecedented challenges at the forefront of technology together. You will find an open environment, offering myriad possibilities to take charge of your career, to be inspired and to have fun.

Education

Solid technical background (MSc in Physics, Computer Science, Electrical engineering, Nano technology or related field). This is a starter position for people who see themselves starting in a technical role and willing to develop themselves in this.

Experience

In this role you will be:

- Analyzing semiconductor manufacturing data, including partitioning into relevant performance contributors via root cause and sensitivity analysis with statistical methods

- Creating tooling in development languages such as Python and Matlab.

- Translating technical and functional questions into an efficient design of experiment.

- Understanding semiconductor manufacturing and measurement

- Simulating lithography performance and device or layer manufacturing process flows using dedicated software programs.

-Understanding semiconductor design rules and their application

Personal skills

- Robust personality.
- Strong pragmatic attitude with an analytical view.
- Self-propelling with a lot of initiative and drive. Able to initiate, influence, steer.
- Out-of-the-box thinker.
- Team player, responsible and reliable.
- Able to distinguish main matters from side issues. Able to develop a vision.
- Excellent communicator. Knows how to convey complex topics in an understandable fashion.
- Convincing. Speaks up. Able to convey a vision.
- Flexible and committed.
