As posted by the hiring company

Job Overview:

Our vision is to transform how the world uses information to enrich life for all. Join an inclusive team passionate about one thing: using their expertise in the relentless pursuit of innovation for customers and partners. The solutions we build help make everything from virtual reality experiences to breakthroughs in neural networks possible. We do it all while committing to integrity, sustainability, and giving back to our communities. Because doing so can fuel the very innovation we are pursuing.

As an EUV Lithography process development engineer at Micron Technology in Boise, Idaho, you will evaluate and implement EUV Lithography on next-generation memory parts. You will collaborate with our team of process engineers to understand roadmap requirements for next-generation memory and how new technologies intercept our roadmap.

You will help drive our EUV process development and partner with manufacturing teams to ensure they will be ready to implement EUV in manufacturing. Our team collaborates with other technology development and manufacturing sites worldwide and leads alignment projects to ensure all fabs are matched on the best processes.

Responsibilities and Duties include, but not limited to:

  • Develop EUV modules at our technology development (TD) site. This includes setting up lithography processes and working with other process areas and process integration to meet manufacturing requirements.
  • Manage EUV lithography processes in our pilot line. Wafers must be processed accurately without delays. Regularly review module performance and SPC charts to keep the line running well and adjust for any changes in the module.
  • Work closely with defect inspection teams and our mask shop to develop appropriate inspection strategies for EUV masks.
  • Collaborate with manufacturing sites to align on equipment and materials requirements, and to make sure EUV processes are aligned for transfer.
  • Participate in pathfinding activities to understand how EUV lithography fits into Micron’s roadmaps and help develop a plan to implement high NA EUV at the right time.
  • Collaborate with groups across different departments, sites, and geographies. Maintain global alignment on photo materials and process conditions.

Qualifications and Skills:

  • Degree/Major: M.S. or Ph.D. in Engineering, Chemistry, Physics, or study relevant to Photolithography; or a B.S. in Engineering, Chemistry, or Physics with 5 years’ semiconductor process related experience with emphasis on Photolithography will be considered.
  • Hands-on experience with cleanroom equipment, including familiarity with lithography equipment and processing, and related metrology.
  • Understanding of EUV lithography, including differences between EUV lithography and deep ultraviolet (DUV) lithography.
  • Knowledge and an understanding of 193nm immersion multiple patterning processes, including Litho-etch-litho-etch (LELE) and Self-aligned quadruple patterning (SAQP).
  • Knowledge of optics for photolithography or experience with photolithography simulation software such as Prolith or S-Litho is helpful.
  • Coursework or proven experience showing strong statistical analysis skills, including design of experiments and data analysis. Experience with JMP, Python, or other statistical analysis software is helpful
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills. Ability to write and present clear and concise executive summaries for Micron and supplier management teams.
  • Flexibility to work occasional weekends and evenings as needed.
