Primary Job Function:
As a member of the II-VI Platform Technology Development and Incubation, a II-VI CTO Group, the incumbent develops processes for laboratory, pilot and full-scale production processes, particularly, diamond growth & fabrication process along diamond-related MEMS device simulations/fabrications/characterizations, wafer polishing/bonding/coating/characterization, and equipment as well as developing innovative new approaches. In this role, the incumbent executes internal and contract R&D projects that develop lab, pilot, and emerging production processes. Leads projects with internal and external partners for the design and building of new material manufacturing equipment. Leads research tasks involving materials characterization with a group of advanced instrumentations. Serves as a corporate resource serving internal needs within area/s of expertise. Incumbent, having one or more of the educational backgrounds outlined below, is expected to develop strong capabilities in crystalline, energy-related, high performance, and value-added materials technology, and device-designs and fabrications over time with emphasis slanted towards the perspective of the particular background of the incumbent. The emphasis of this position is a combination of engineering, physics and chemistry disciplines with materials science and the ability to assimilate and apply knowledge from other engineering disciplines.
Minimum MS degree with 5 years' experience, Ph.D. preferred with 2 years' experience.
Two to five years' experience in high technology advanced materials development with experience in manufacturing process development, or highly achieved exceptional recent graduate. Direct experience with diamond and Semiconductor-Fab are preferred.
Hands-on experience in material processes development, equipment designs and constructions, data acquisition, automation, as well as in experimentation in a chemistry lab, a clean room, a semiconductor Fab, and an industrial manufacturing environment. Specific experiences in diamond, MEMS, RF devices, optoelectronic devices, crystal growths and fabrications, coatings, polishing, wafer-bonding, etc., will be a plus.
Crystal growth, slicing, thinning, lapping, polishing, cleaning, packaging, etc.
