Research & development - Leuven | Just now
Advances in materials and process technology in nanoelectronics are inherently linked with enhanced fundamental understanding. The Materials and Component Analysis department (MCA) within imec plays a critical role in providing this fundamental understanding. This is facilitated by the onsite 200 mm or 300 mm fabs devoted to semiconductor R&D, all of which are situated in Leuven, Belgium, which coincidently was voted Europe’s 2020 capital of innovation (see: https://ec.europa.eu/info/news/leuven-european-capital-innovation-2020-2020-sep-24_en)).
The MCA department contains state-of-the-art equipment dedicated to semiconductor analysis ranging from ARPES, APT, EDS, EELS, ERD, FIB, Raman, RBS, SIMS, the SPM suite, PEEM, TEM, TERS, XPS, UPS, ... Among these, TEM/FIB plays a crucial role in imaging the most advanced materials and device structures, and in determining their elemental composition. Our TEM and FIB systems are operated in service mode in a 24/7 regime with an emphasis on high volume output to support fast cycles of learning. Faced with the continuing demand for higher volume, shorter turn around times and more complex technical challenges, we are looking for a manager with the right balance of R&D and service support.
Your responsibility will be twofold. On one hand you will be leading R&D efforts to take FIB/TEM, as applied in the semiconductor industry, to the next level (attained through technique and/or methodology development). On the other hand, you will be responsible for the daily operation and organization of the TEM/FIB service targeting an optimum output in terms of quality, volume, turn-around-time and customer satisfaction. Your tasks will include:
We offer you the opportunity to join one of the world’s premier research centers in nanotechnology at its headquarters in Leuven, Belgium. With your talent, passion and expertise, you’ll become part of a team that makes the impossible possible. Together, we shape the technology that will determine the society of tomorrow.
We are proud of our open, multicultural, and informal working environment with ample possibilities to take initiative and show responsibility. We commit to supporting and guiding you in this process; not only with words but also with tangible actions. Through imec.academy, 'our corporate university', we actively invest in your development to further your technical and personal growth.
We are aware that your valuable contribution makes imec a top player in its field. Your energy and commitment are therefore appreciated by means of a competitive salary with many fringe benefits.
