The Center for Nanoscale Systems (CNS) at Harvard University seeks a multi-talented, enthusiastic individual to work within the Nanofabrication Group as a photolithography engineer. CNS is an open, shared-use facility that serves all of Harvard as well as external academic and industrial users. Working under the supervision of the Nanofabrication Facility Manager, this person will provide maintenance, training and research development in photolithography and chemical wet process for nanofabrication.
Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to: provide support and maintenance of multiple photolithography tools (mask aligners, steppers, UV exposure systems, resist coaters/developers, pattern design software and computers) with capabilities in i-line and DUV with line/space resolution of 1 um. This person will oversee and lead chemical wet processes development, training and troubleshooting for nanofabrication, including various resist processes, wet etching, sample cleaning, wet process technology expansion, and chemical management in the cleanroom. This individual will also be in charge of advanced patterning characterization with scanning electron microscopy (SEM) for feature patterning and multilayer alignment, as well teaming with members of the Nanofabrication Facility for film deposition projects. Other responsibilities are training new users, ensuring safety practices, authoring SOPs and related documents for the Nanofabrication Facility.
