CMP Modeling Engineer
Hillsboro , Oregon
January 12, 2017
In this particular job you will apply your education to cutting edge research and development of physics-based numerical models for analysis of semiconductor processing equipment in order to maintain Intel's world-class lead in processing technology. The focus will be on the simulation of chemical mechanical planarization processes, liquid-phase fluid flow, solid mechanics, and heterogeneous chemistry.

You will work in an intellectual and supportive environment developing new, leading edge models, methodologies to predict interactions between physical processes, and thin film deposition and etch uniformity. In addition, you will be using our world-class high-performance computing center to develop cutting edge tools for improving cycle times of simulations using parallel programming and fast numerical solvers.

The responsibilities will include, but are not limited to the following:
• Analysis and model development for chemical mechanical planarization systems from feature- to reactor-scales.
• Development of software for numerical modeling of advanced semiconductor processes.
• Application of numerical modeling tools to simulation of semiconductor processing equipment with an emphasis on planarization and associated processes.
• Design and implementation of software tools and infrastructure components.
• Integration and application of a wide range of physical modeling tools representing a semiconductor processing technology flow.
• Development and application of parallel and multi-thread programming methods.
You must possess the below minimum qualifications to be initially considered for this position. Preferred qualifications are in addition to the minimum requirements and are considered a plus factor in identifying top candidates.

Minimum Qualifications:
• Must possess a Ph.D. degree in Aerospace Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering or a related field.
• Minimum of 2 years experience with numerical modeling of mechanical/chemical systems.
• Minimum of 1 year experience with solid mechanics, fluid dynamics, chemical kinetics, numerical analysis methods such as finite element method and finite volume method, meshing techniques, and semiconductor processing.
• Minimum of 1 year experience with programming, and training in parallel programming techniques.

Preferred Qualifications:
• Experience with numerical modeling of mechanical/chemical systems focused on planarization, solid mechanics, and fluid flow.
• Experience programming in C /C.

A little about us:
Our vision is simple and direct. If it computes, it does it best with Intel. We embrace all aspects of computing.
