ASML is extending its strong position in the field of metrology for the semiconductor market. In ASML’s Research department, new concepts and applications are being invented and designed for future markets of lithography and metrology in various fields of semiconductor manufacturing.

Job Mission

Execute high-level research in the field of wafer metrology with application to metrology requirements for future electronic devices in the semiconductor industry, with an emphasis on computational approaches for parameter inference from experimental sensor data.

Job Description

Various trends in device manufacturing push both lithography and metrology to challenging requirements.
This research position is directed towards new approaches and technologies in wafer metrology according to the increased requirements following the lithography roadmaps of ASML’s customers.

The intended research will concentrate amongst others on various computational approaches for estimation of relevant metrology parameters out of raw experimental sensor data.

The job comprises the responsibility to steer a team of researchers and engineers into innovative research directions for these computational approaches related to the technology of wafer metrology.


We are looking for a senior expert in the field of Parameter Inference and Estimation, Optimization, Signal and Data Processing, and Inverse Problems. The candidate must have a well proven track record in this field, resulting from many years of research in this area either at academic institutes and/or at industrial research labs.

The candidate must have a PhD degree in either one of the following fields: Mathematics, Computational Physics, or Electrical engineering oriented towards signal processing and/or control.


The ideal candidate has preferably more than 8 years of research experience in a complex high-tech environment, where she/he operated as a senior researcher who did shape and set out inventive and novel approaches hereby exploiting his/her broad expertise in the above fields of research.

Personal skills

We are looking for a person with the following skill-set:

  • Responsibility to steer a team of researchers and engineers into innovative research directions
  • Team-player
  • Convincing personality to propagate his/her technology proposals within the team and within the ASML organization
  • Commitment to team and company
  • High personal ambition and drive
  • Drive to deliver excellent performance
  • Communication skills for communication at various levels in the organization
  • Solution-oriented mind-set

Context of the position

This project will be carried out at the CMMS-group in ASML-Research (CMMS = Computational Methods, Metrology and Sensors). The project is further part of a collaboration with other departments within the ASML organization, in particular the business line ASML-APPS (Applications).
