Located in Malibu, California, HRL has been on the leading edge of technology, conducting pioneering research and advancing the state of the art.

Bachelor or Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering, Materials Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Physics, Chemistry or related fields, OR equivalent experience.

This exciting role joins a team of scientists and engineers pushing the state of the art in the processing of silicon and III-V semiconductor materials. You will be developing new fabrication processes and implementing existing processes in IC fabrication, micromachining, and wafer-level integration. Job functions will include hands-on wafer fabrication in a clean room environment based on existing written processes, developing new processes and procedures, designing, planning and performing experiments, recording and analyzing data, troubleshooting and making decisions based on observations, presenting results, and communicating future processing improvements to HRL project managers. You will be responsible for assessing and driving yield improvements, cycle time, and forecasting fabrication lot schedules in conjunction with program managers. This role will focus on research, development and production in the technology fields of MEMS, infrared focal plane arrays, electro-optical, and other sensors, actuators and transducers.

We value your 3 or more years of experience with microelectronics semiconductor fabrication (DRIE, RIE, lithography, ALD, PECVD, plating and wet chemistry, metal and dielectric deposition, chemical-mechanical-polishing, wafer bonding, die attach, etc) and metrology (optical microscope inspection, SEM, profilometry, etc). Familiarity with CAD mask layout design is a plus. Familiarity with design of experiments and JMP software is a plus.

Processes associated with semiconductor IC fabrication is required, relating to semiconductor front end (FEOL) or back end of line (BEOL) processing; Familiarity with microelectronics packaging and chip/wafer level integration processes is beneficial.
