R&D Engineer Thin Film Adhesion

What you will do

As a R&D Engineer Thin Film Adhesion you will be part of a team of material experts working on enabling next generation memories and logic devices. You will work within the Material, Interfaces, Deposition and Analysis (MIDA) department to study material adhesion and reduce the risk of film delamination during FAB processing. Your goal will be to maintain and develop the material adhesion database to become a predictive instrument to prevent delamination events. That includes running test materials, assessing new adhesion measurement technique. In addition, you will take up material development requests on industrial PVD cluster tools in which delamination is an important aspect to manage.   

You will: 

  • Be responsible for the maintenance, documentation and continuous development of a material database of surface/interface adhesion. 
  • Be the main point of contact for the FAB, and integration/program teams, for both preventative actions and failure analysis, including design of experiments.  
  • Be the technical lead, in collaboration with the reliability department, to assess and test experimental methods for measurement of material adhesion to feed the database. 
  • Be the owner of one, or more, material deposition processes and their optimization/development.   
  • Be a key contributor to innovation, both within and outside of the scope of your role. Growth is a key part of the job! 

What we do for you

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 committed to being an inclusive employer and 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 market appropriate salary with many fringe benefits. 

Who you are

  • You have a PhD or MSc degree in physics, applied physics, material science, or a closely related discipline. 
  • Proven thin film deposition expertise, in particular physical vapor deposition, is a must. 
  • Demonstrated expertise in and knowledge of thin film measurement techniques. 
  • A few years (3+) of experience in an industrial semiconductor R&D environment is a significant plus. 
  • Hands-on, enthusiastic, and “always improving” mentality. 
  • We appreciate your open mind and multi-disciplinary attitude. 
  • Given the international character of imec, good knowledge of (spoken and written) English is a must.
