Research & development - Leuven | About a week ago
In the Material and Components Analysis (MCA) Department at imec we apply a variety of structural, chemical, topography and electronic measurement methods to support the needs of imec’s pilot fabrication facilities for advanced semiconductor device development. One of the teams within the MCA department is devoted to TEM (Transmission Electron Microscopy) inclusive of TEM sample preparation. The work is done in close collaboration with the TEM group in Fab Operations where inline automated full wafer capable TEM preparation tools are used. The focus for the Lab TEM team is on unique one-off samples and in-depth analysis with various TEM enabled analysis capabilities included but not limited to HR-TEM, EDX/EELS, strain measurement, and tomography.
As TEM specialist your task will be to support - in a rotating shift regime - the TEM service at imec by executing and interpreting TEM measurements. You will prepare TEM samples starting from single dies, using focused ion beam (FIB) resulting in a thin specimen, observe these in the transmission electron microscope, analyze critical dimensions features, materials defects, and determine chemical composition of stacks. You will generate a comprehensive report that allows the process teams to use these observations to advance their development work.
All these tasks will need to be done, after a period of training depending on your initial level of expertise, in an accurate and independent way, working to assure an optimal use of the equipment resources.
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.
