Introduction to the job

Computers and mobiles are all around us. Each year the speed of microprocessors improves and size of memory increases. ASML products are key in enabling this progress. ASML builds lithography systems that can place multiple layers on a chip with very high precision and accuracy. The so-called overlay demand for this layer-to-layer positioning is determined by the design of the chip and needs to be better with each generation of scanners. To setup the scanner for the required overlay performance, an extremely accurate ‘ruler’ is needed (sub-nanometer accuracy). The development, implementation, industrialization and continuous improvement of this reference is the mission of the Overlay Reference & Control group. Here all overlay aspects of a scanner are at play. Are you able to bridge the gap between detail and overview? Will you propose the bright design solutions with impact on our next generation machines? Will you be able to balance a robust reference design with other critical requirements?

Role and responsibilities

  • Deliver the most accurate reference wafers and reticles.
  • Develop experimental test on ASML scanner.
  • Analyze test data and propose improved tests and algorithms.
  • Write technical documents.
  • Support the internal and external customers in solving issues.
  • Contribute to ASML’s overlay roadmap.
  • Collaborate with team members.

An average day may look like this:
You align with your team leader and architect on priorities and possible escalation support. You also discuss the next steps how to make the design more robust and efficient.
Later that day, you collect the latest measurement results from the test setup you designed. Don’t forget to prepare the presentation for the comparison between the theoretical and empirical results. You will need to convince your stakeholders of your design-change proposal.

Education and experience


Technical University MSc or PhD, in physics, applied mathematics, engineering or similar.


  • Expert in MATLAB or Python willing to learn MATLAB quickly. A MATLAB test is part of the hiring process.
  • Experienced with data analysis.
  • Capable to troubleshoot a variety of issues.
  • Affinity with statistics is a plus.
  • Affinity with experimental approach is appreciated.


Working at the cutting edge of tech, you’ll always have new challenges and new problems to solve – and working together is the only way to do that. You won’t work in a silo. Instead, you’ll be part of a creative, dynamic work environment where you’ll collaborate with supportive colleagues. There is always space for creative and unique points of view. You’ll have the flexibility and trust to choose how best to tackle tasks and solve problems.
To thrive in this job, you’ll need the following skills:

  • Good English language skills is a must.
  • Creative, pro-active, disciplined and team player.
  • Strong analytical ability with a pragmatic attitude.
  • Good communicational skills, including convincing others, speaking up, and conveying a message.
  • Able to distinguish main matters from side issues.
