Job Summary Micro- and nano- fabrication and related tasks in a cleanroom environment for prototype MEMS/NEMS and nanophotonic devices based on silicon and other materials. The successful job candidate will frequently interact with the device research/design team composed of PI, staff, post-doctoral scholars, and students. The fabrication engineer is expected to work independently and fully document work and report progress (~weekly) to the PI and team.
Job Duties The job tasks will comprise a complete spectrum of micro- and nano-fabrication tasks in a state-of-the-art cleanroom facility (Caltech's Kavli Nanoscience Institute): including CAD mask design (using design specs provided by team), electron beam pattern generation and lithography, optical lithography, plasma etching and deposition, materials deposition, and other related nano- and micro-fabrication techniques. - Process flow validation and optimization: use of optical microscope, scanning electron microscope, profilometer, parameter analyzer, and related tools to evaluate device characteristics and to iteratively improve device performance and fabrication yield - Must be able to lift at least 20 pounds, but heavy or continual lifting not expected - May infrequently travel for a project, but not on a regular or consistent basis
Basic Qualifications - B.S. or higher degree is required in either electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, physics, or a related discipline in the physical or engineering sciences -Three years of recent, hands-on micro- or nano-fabrication experience in a state-of-the-art cleanroom facility is necessary
Preferred Qualifications - Extensive prior experience in nano- and micro-fabrication highly desired - Research laboratory experience in the physical or engineering sciences also highly desirable
Required Documents - Resume - CV - Unofficial Transcripts - 5 reference letters required - Cover letter is optional
