What you will do

Wet clean and surface functionalization processes are ubiquitous in the semiconductor industry. Wet processes (clean, etch, strip, etc.) are extensively used in Front, Middle, Back and far Back-end-of-line (3D), and even in wafer reclaim. IMECS’s programs (CMOS, Memory, beyond-CMOS, 3D systems) keep up in a constant innovation frenzy, bringing more and new challenges to the cleaning team. For example, Moore’s law CMOS scaling demands cleaning and drying processes of nanostructures without damage and with perfect selectivity to the exposed device’s materials. Such complex wet cleaning and drying processes involve the removal of particles and chemical impurities from semiconductor, dielectric and metal surfaces. To attain such requirements, a good understanding of cleaning processes and state-of-the-art wet processing hardware is a must.

Therefore, we are looking for a wet clean R&D Engineer to join our team.

  • You will focus on research and development to set up wet processes on the state of the art 300 mm tools. Your excellent R&D documentation is key for successful process development.
  • You will work in a dynamic multidisciplinary and multicultural environment together with imec researchers, hardware engineers, industry assignees, tool suppliers, device and process experts and scientists.

What we do for you

We offer you the opportunity to join one of the world’s premier research centers in nanotechnology at its headquarters in Leuven, Belgium. With your talent, passion and expertise, you’ll become part of a team that makes the impossible possible. Together, we shape the technology that will determine the society of tomorrow.

We are committed to being an inclusive employer and proud of our open, multicultural, and informal working environment with ample possibilities to take initiative and show responsibility. We commit to supporting and guiding you in this process; not only with words but also with tangible actions. Through imec.academy, 'our corporate university', we actively invest in your development to further your technical and personal growth.

We are aware that your valuable contribution makes imec a top player in its field. Your energy and commitment are therefore appreciated by means of a market appropriate salary with many fringe benefits.

Who you are

  • You obtained a Master in Science or Engineering and display strong engineering skills and mindset.
  • You have plus 5 years of experience in the semiconductor industry and experience in wet cleaning processing (this is a plus).
  • You have strong analytical skills and are motivated to look into the fundamentals of a problem (literature research).
  • You are working autonomously, well organized, with good attention to detail and set high standards of quality.
  • You can work within cross-disciplined technical teams.
  • You are a strong team player and also able to work without supervision.
  • Given the international character of imec, fluency in English is a must.
