Job Description

:

We are seeking an Intern Summer \- R&D Grad

On any given day, you may be called on to:

+ Support Sandia’s advanced semiconductor development programs, ranging from Sandia’s radiation hard CMOS to compound semiconductors
+ Develop novel device technologies in a microfabrication facility for a wide range of applications using plasma etch, photolithography, chemical vapor deposition and metal evaporation
+ Develop process device integration for devices based in silicon and compound semiconductors, and associated electrical test, characterization, and verification of manufactured devices
+ Partner with physical science researchers to understand and model advanced devices
+ Use models to improve and tailor device performances
+ Publish results in journal articles and present at conferences

It is expected that candidates will bring interesting technologies and ideas for development at both a die and wafer scale while also learning potentially new technologies such as superconductivity, piezoelectricity, ferroelectricity, and MEMS\. Candidates will be expected to publish in scientific journals as well as have the opportunity to attend scientific conferences\.

Required:

You bring the confidence and skills to be eligible for the job by meeting these minimum requirements:

Department Description:

Sandia National Laboratories: Microsystems Science and Technology Center

Our department develops and maintains core semiconductor processing capabilities and capacity that enable our customers to build differentiating Microsystems products\. Two unique facilities are co\-located within the 64,900 square foot MESAfab complex including: \(1\) a 11,900 square foot Class 1 Silicon Fab for 6\-inch silicon wafer processing and \(2\) a 14,900 square foot Class 10 and Class 100 MicroFab for compound semiconductor material processing and silicon wafer post\-processing\.

The Silicon Fab has processing expertise in both CMOS and MEMS technologies\. Over 150 equipment sets are maintained, supported and operated 24 hours per day, 5 days a week \(3 shifts\)\. Both processing and maintenance expertise are staffed on all 3 shifts\. We offer unique prototyping capabilities\. We are capable of producing full flow production lots with quick turnaround time as well as performing flexible process development\.

The MicroFab has expertise in compound semiconductor material processing\. All of the MicroFab equipment \(180 tools\) are maintained and supported by our in\-house maintenance and technical staff\. We are capable of producing highly customized, low\-volume production or prototyping devices and have flexible processing capabilities\.
