Departmental Overview The Marvell NanoLab, located in the CITRIS headquarters building, Sutardja Dai Hall , includes more than 15,000 sq feet of Class100 and Class1000 cleanroom.
The Marvell NanoLab is a shared research center providing more than 100 Principal Investigators and over 500 academic and industrial researchers a complete set of micro- and nano-fabrication tools.
This role involves professional engineering and engineering technician support as part of academic instructional lab and/or research projects and programs. Engineering activities include the design, construction, testing of experimental systems, operation of analytical systems, establishment of performance specifications, and documentation.
Responsibilities 30% Under general supervision, develop and present training materials for laboratory researchers to become qualified to safely and proficiently operate a broad range of micro/nano fabrication and metrology laboratory equipment, emphasis on lithography equipment and wet process stations. Examples of materials include operator procedures, start-up / shut down procedures, training / qualification procedures, written / video manuals, and verification / qualification tests. Work in teams as required. Meet with Principal Investigators (PI's), the NanoLab Director, research staff and researchers to resolve issues. Contribute to designs to develop and improve process and process reliability. Liaison with vendors for support services.
30% Under general supervision, develop test processes to monitor state of health of laboratory equipment. Though all NanoLab process engineers are expected to provide support in any technology area provided by the NanoLab, this position seeks to expand the staff expertise especially with lithography equipment including but not limited to contact aligners, wafer steppers, laser direct write, and electron beam lithography systems. Develop and define process specifications, process monitoring schedules, and process consumable inventory needs. Collect, analyze, and present process monitoring data to facilitate most effective use of laboratory equipment by researchers. Troubleshoot nanofabrication laboratory equipment process performance and problem reports filed by lab researchers. Assist in developing new process recipes. Become familiar with laboratory CMOS baseline process. Perform short loop process tests for baseline process.
25% Under general supervision, perform well-defined maintenance tasks of specific laboratory equipment. Under general supervision, participate in the oversight, restocking, distribution, and waste pick-up of wide range of process chemicals and laboratory supplies used by laboratory researchers. Supervision: This position may be responsible for supervision of up to two part time work study student workers depending upon work load. Supervisory tasks may be expanded due to operations growth to include a single R&D 1 engineer, visiting scholar, or other temporary academic appointee.
15% Understand and use the Mercury database to mark equipment status, enable tools, enter comments and problem reports, and add needed support documents (e.g. detailed web-based instruction manuals, CAD drawings). Write reports as needed. Assist in the development of, and follow standard operating procedures and best known methods for safety and to prevent injuries. Practice and comply with safe working practices to assure personal safety and safety to the lab environment for colleagues and researchers. Understand and work within guidelines to protect the environment.
Working knowledge of engineering principles and methods in order to independently perform professional design work of limited scope and complexity.
Working knowledge necessary to begin independent application of principles, practices and procedures in the completion of assignments.
Organizational abilities and decision-making to prioritize work assignments.
Effective written and verbal communication skills.
Ability to work in a collaborative manner, to assist in identifying any challenges or barriers.
Familiarity with broad range of micro/nanofabrication and semiconductor processing equipment.
Hands on experience with thin film measurement and characterization equipment.
Hands on experience with standard g-line and i-line photolithography equipment.
Hands on experience with deep UV lithography equipment.
Hands on experience with electron beam lithography equipment.
Bachelors degree in related area (Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Materials Science Engineering, Bioengineering, Physics, Applied Physics) or equivalent experience.
