Introduction to the job

Within Research we develop new concepts and the required technologies to move the performance of our next generation scanner products to exceptional levels. Environmental considerations are also taken into account, such as using environmental friendly materials and reducing the energy our scanners consume. It is our job to show the potential and pitfalls of these new technologies and concepts so our business lines can make clear decisions on what .

As we are expanding our team we have an opening for a Multi-phase flow modelling expert.

Role and responsibilities

In this job you create and improve simulation models to analyze the performance of new technical solutions and investigate potential new issues.

From your expertise you give input and feedback to the complexity of model needed to analyze the performance.

When discussing the results from your analyses in the team, you explain your modeling choices and how they impact the interpretation of the results.

From the results you show the direction the solution should go and you are invited to be creative and propose out-of-the-box ideas to overcome any issues.

Education and experience

The multi-phase flow simulations models we envision contain different physical phenomena. To name a few: free surface fluids moving over solid surfaces with different hydrophobic properties, gas flows to direct and steer fluid flows, break-up of fluid flows, gas bubble formation in fluids.

For the level of expertise we are looking for we expect you to either have a PhD in this field and recently graduated or you have some years of industrial experience after completing your MSc.

You are familiar with commercial modeling tools like StarCCM, COMSOL, or comparable packages.

You are not afraid to use dedicated simulation tools in MATLAB, and to script commercial tools to obtain the proper models.

You are creative in displaying complex results in a simple convincing way.

You find satisfaction in reporting and presenting these results to your peers and stakeholders.


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:

  • 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.

Other information

Context of the position:

Researchdepartment is a highly dynamic environment, where we work on the newest technology concepts for our equipment. You work in multi-disciplinary teams, where you will be challenged also to look beyond your own competence, to be able to apply it in new technologies. This will provide you also with an environment where you can learn and grow. If you find out that something does not work, you do not see it as a setback, but as an inspiration to find new solutions. You are willing to help your colleagues outside your project, as they will help you, to discover new knowledge and connect within the company.

This vacancy is with the Flow & Thermal group. This group consists of 22 persons, in the roles of expert, architect, and project lead. The work is organized in multidisciplinary teams under the guidance of a project leader and an architect.

The duration of the project varies from one year to multiple years. Sometimes small study assignments ofa couple of months may be executed in a very small team of 2-3 persons.

This position may require access to controlled technology, as defined in the Export Administration Regulations (15 C.F.R. §730, et seq.). Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require ASML to proceed with candidates who are immediately eligible to access controlled technology.
