Intel Job Requisition : JR0038037at

The Technology Development group's Thin Films division of Intel Corporation currently has openings for physical science and engineering Ph.D.s to support/direct R&D of advanced processing methods. Candidates hired for these positions will be responsible for developing the next generation of Intel's microprocessors.

The PTD Module & Integration Device Yield Engineer's role encompasses ownership of critical technology, enabling rapid miniaturization in the semiconductor industry and the mass production of integrated circuits. Engineers within the Portland Technology Development (PTD) organization at Intel participate in leading edge innovations in the development of the fabrication process and continue to overcome seemingly impossible barriers as tolerances and specifications for building best-in-class computing devices becomes increasingly rigorous.  Our world-class team consists of passionate, talented, accomplished scientists and engineers who hail from a diverse range of educational, cultural and technological backgrounds. We foster strong collaborations within large groups of process and design engineers as well as with equipment suppliers from all over the world. Our pursuit of increasingly efficient, powerful, tiny devices seek to enable smarter, connected economies toward the enrichment of people around the globe.  If you are considering a career which places you at the leading edge of technological innovation with the world's foremost semiconductor manufacturer, we encourage you to consider joining the team that is chartered with continuing to meet the challenge of Moore's Law in the 21st century. 

A key challenge in this pursuit of a superior microfabrication processes is the development of next generation optical and computational methods to enable precision measurements and finer control in increasingly complex device interfaces. Thus, in addition to candidates interested in the process development role detailed above, those with experience in optics and big-data manipulation are also encouraged to consider applying. In this role, you will be tasked specifically with developing new optical methods as well as designing advanced algorithms that enable state-of-the-art process control systems in semiconductor manufacturing. This emerging team actively collaborates with various process, yield, automation and module engineers within Intel to utilize the latest advances in artificial intelligence and deliver unprecedented robust control to Intel’s manufacturing process. 

Criteria for selection include for all candidates:

  • A strong academic record.
  • Demonstrated experimental and data analysis expertise.
  • Superior critical thinking skills. 
  • An ability to drive and to take responsibility for projects.
  • Experience using and maintaining scientific equipment is valued.
  • Semiconductor processing experience is not mandatory. 

Those candidates specifically interested in optics and big data applications will be selected according to the following desirable qualifications:

  • Strong fundamental understanding of light-matter interaction in the microscopic and atomic regime.
  • Data acquisition and analysis expertise in experimental research or, demonstrated real-world modeling and computational expertise in theoretical research.
  • Strong grasp of at-least one of the modern general all-purpose analytical programming languages such as Python, Matlab, SAS, JMP, R, C, C++, FORTRAN, etc.
  • Demonstrated coding evidence through Github or similar platform.
  • Experience in latest machine learning technologies, or
  • Experience in optical measurements, spectroscopy, signal processing, manipulation and analysis.

Openings are immediately available at Intel’s primary development facility (Ronler Acres) located ~10 miles west of Portland, OR.
