Employment

Nanofabrication Specialist

Position Summary

The Princeton University Physics department is seeking an electron beam lithography technician to support quantum device development and research.  This is a one year term position with the possibility of renewal.
The core responsibilities of this position require the successful applicant to:

  • Work in a clean room environment.
  • Develop and maintain fabrication processes for semiconductor/superconductor quantum devices.
  • Stabilize existing sample fabrication processes and develop more sophisticated sample fabrication capabilities based on the existing tool set.

Essential Qualifications

  • Experienced in multi-layer electron beam lithography (Elionix preferred), metal deposition, and liftoff processes.
  • Ability to work in a large research group with graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
  • Ability to generate monthly progress reports and process stability checks.
  • Experience with optical lithography using both stepper and mask aligners, thin film deposition of metal/dielectrics with physical vapor deposition, electron beam evaporation, thermal evaporation, and sputter deposition.
  • Experience with reactive ion etching and wet etching of metal/dielectrics and related electrochemistry.
  • Experience with multilayer mask design and CAD tools and characterization tools such as scanning electron microscope, atomic force microscope, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and SIMS analysis.
  • BA/BS in electrical engineering, physics, materials engineering or related field or equivalent practical experience.
  • Willingness to work with solvents and acids, including hydrofluoric acid.
  • Ability to lift 40 pounds and stand for two hours.
  • The final candidate will be required to complete a background check successfully.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Experience with process development, fabrication troubleshooting and statistical process control.
  • Familiar with material processing for cryogenic superconducting devices (detector arrays, etc.)
  • MS/PhD in electrical engineering, physics, materials engineering or related field or equivalent practical experience.
