Under the general supervision of the Technical Director of the Nano 3 facility, and operating under the work direction of Senior Engineers, the incumbent will use skills as a seasoned, experienced engineering professional to develop Nano3 micro/nano fabrication processes and analytical methods. The particular processes for micro/nano fabrication can vary widely depending on the applications, materials, and user specific factors, and the materials analytical scope ranges from biological to inorganic materials.
Processes may include: photolithography, thin film deposition, etching, metrology, electroforming, hot-embossing, polymer casting, thermal processing, and providing micro/nano fabrication services to end users utilizing existing and future facility equipment. The Process Engineer possesses broad and thorough knowledge of fabrication techniques to develop processes and analysis approaches to accommodate the needs for different user groups and research projects. Assists in the development of innovative nanotechnologies. Also independently provide introductory training classes in the areas of general micro/nano/microfluidic device fabrication, as well as safety orientations for new facility users.
Also performs general administrative functions to assist the overall facility operation, including management of consumables. Independently design process conditions and experiments related to process development/verification, assist in minor equipment modifications, identify novel device processing methods and develop them for an independent user base, and serve as primary facility liaison in the transfer of fabrication technologies to a large community comprised or internal and external users of a diverse background.
In addition, assist in the development of facility goals. Assignments typically require concentration in a field of application where subject matter knowledge relevant to research objectives and methodology is of great value in understanding and establishing engineering design criteria. Demonstrate good judgment in selecting methods and techniques for obtaining solutions.
Graduation from college with major work in engineering and three (3) years of engineering experience (including one (1) year of responsible design work); or an equivalent combination of additional education and experience.
Thorough knowledge and experience with engineering principles and methods to independently perform the full range of engineering professional design work. Thorough knowledge necessary to apply principles, practices and procedures in the completion of assignments.
Demonstrated working knowledge of the fundamentals of materials science.
Proven experience with several of the following fabrication technologies: Photolithography, Resist processing, Wet etching, Dry etching (reactive ion etching, inductively couple plasma etching), Chemical vapor deposition, Sputtering, Electron-beam evaporation. Materials analysis techniques: Scanning electron microscopy, Scanning probe microscopy, Contact profilometry, 3-D optical profilometry, Film stress measurement.
Experience with relevant processing and analysis techniques, such as Photolithography, Resist processing, Wet-etching, Dry-etching (reactive ion etching, inductively couple plasma etching), Chemical vapor deposition, Sputtering, Electron-beam evaporation, Electro-forming, Bonding, Micromachining, Chemical Processing.
Proficient computer skills (i.e. Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) to perform teaching tasks, generate user record and financial data, and to communicate with users. Ability to create professional reports, lab manuals, instruction manuals, graphs, charts, and spreadsheets.
Excellent analytical and judgment skills to independently conduct analyses and develop appropriate recommendations.
Effective written and verbal communication and presentation skills. Skill in communicating clearly, effectively, tactfully, and patiently in person, on phone and written to diverse population, one on one or small groups. Ability to lead and influence others.
Demonstrated ability to clearly communicate abstract ideas associated with highly technical fields including chemistry, electrical engineering, materials, and physics.
