Nanofabrication Engineer

Modern Electron has an immediate opening for a nanofabrication engineer. A highly qualified nanofabrication engineer is needed to work on the product R&D team, and will be responsible for innovation and production of nanoscale devices using the company’s cutting edge technology and processes. Particular focus will be on designing fabrication process flows for 3D devices, process development, and technology transfer to small or medium-scale foundries. The successful candidate will work with a team of physicists, chemists, material scientists, electrical engineers, and technicians. This position will report to the CTO.
Modern Electron is a start-up company dedicated to generating cheap, modular, and reliable electricity. Expensive mechanical engines and turbines based on 19th-century technology still generate the majority of the power used worldwide. We seek to replace them with paper thin heat-to-electricity generators. >$20MM venture capital is committed to our vision. We have enormous potential for learning, impact, and growth in a small and collaborative team setting.

  • Cleanroom-based nano/microfabrication and/or MEMS fabrication experience
  • Expertise with optical lithography, stepper lithography, and mask design
  • Expertise in inorganic thin film deposition (evaporation, sputtering, chemical vapor deposition, atomic layer deposition, and high temperature oxidation) 
  • Expertise in wet and dry chemical etching (RIE, ICP)
  • Experience with metrology techniques such as scanning electron microscopy, profilometry, and ellipsometry
  • Experience with silicon-based micro-electro-mechanical-systems (MEMS) or nano-electro-mechanical-systems (NEMS)
  • Experience with packaging/back-end/interconnect techniques (e.g. wafer bonding, dicing, TSVs, etc.)
  • Experience with technology transfer to small- or medium-scale semiconductor foundries
MS in Materials Science, Physics, Chemistry, Electrical Engineering or related field
Demonstrated experience in nanoscale fabrication and analysis techniques
At least 8 years (Ph.D. + work) experience in semiconductor fabrication and analysis techniques
Experience with device characterization

We are an equal opportunity employer

Additional Titles: Process Integration Engineer; Fabrication Integration Engineer; Nanofabrication Engineer;  Process Engineer; Process Development Engineer; MEMS Engineer
