To strengthen the materials science competence, ASML Research is looking for an inorganic/hybrid materials scientist who can add value to the understanding and development ofinorganic/hybrid materials.

Job Mission

ASML is seeking a Materials Scientist with expertise in design of inorganic materials to produce ultra-high precision systems. In this role you will focus on the design of materials based on mechanical, thermal and chemical properties and advise on manufacturability of the proposed materials.

Job Description

The main focus of this position will be:

  • Understand/design/assess and develop new materials based on required specs.
  • Investigate materials and chemical issues in extreme conditions.
  • Develop, demonstrate feasibility for prototyping of next generation of materials systems
  • Solve any engineering challenges that we encounter related to material aspects of design and manufacturing process of materials to achieve the precision and life time performance
  • Translate mechanical, chemical and thermal specifications into materials of choice
  • Use modeling techniques to screen relevant materials
  • Document and present the data.


PhD degree


  • PhD in physics or materialsscience and engineering with background and experience in design of new materialswith a focus on hybrid materials/composite materials.
  • A minimum of 3-5 years ofindustry experience
  • Hands on experience in manufacturingprocesses
  • Experience in correlating thenanoscopic characterization to microscopic properties.
  • Experience with materialsmodeling techniques.
  • Excellent Knowledge ofelectro-optical, mechanical and interfacial properties of materials.
  • Expert knowledge of MATLAB.
  • Excellent analytical andexperimental skills.

Personal skills

  • Open to learning techniques outside of the above mentioned fields in the future.
  • Proactive and autonomous while driving to success in a highly skilled team of experts towards a common goal.
  • Pragmatic attitude with an analytical view.
  • Able to see the big picture and create a vision and have perseverance in realizing it.

Context of the position

The Research Materials Science andChemistry group is part of the Research department of ASML. This group identifies and fills in technological gaps in the future roadmap of lithography and the lithography market. Our focus is on advanced material research and on the interaction of light (13.5 nm) with the gaseous background in our tools and on solid materials. We work in small teams and deliver solutions that can be transferred to Development and Engineering. We work together with external research institutes and universities.
