Are you passionate about transmission electron microscopy (TEM)? Micron has an outstanding TEM lab under Technology Development (TD) at its headquarters in Boise, Idaho. We have the most advanced TEMs available in the electron microscope field and state-of-art focused ion beam (FIB) machines for preparing TEM specimens. As a TEM Engineer in Micron's Analytical TEM lab, you will work with Technology Development research groups to develop new processes and materials and work with Fab engineers to expedite procedures for product transfers and improve yield. The successful applicant for this position will be placed at the corresponding Engineer level based on previous experience in analytical TEM work and education.
Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to :
Perform daily TEM analysis, including microstructure and chemical analysis using electron diffraction, EDS, and EELS to support the activities in Micron R&D and manufacturing
Give detailed pass down to the people in the next shift to make a smooth shift transition
Make contributions to optimize the existing Lab procedures
Work closely with process development teams to solve problems in the new part/module development
Develop/adopt advanced TEM techniques with an emphasis on PED, 4D-STEM, and advanced EELS techniques for the utilization in semiconductor process
Develop/adopt solutions to enhance the efficiency of data acquisition and data processing in TEM
Strong hands-on experience in TEM imaging and analysis, particularly in electron optics, advanced EELS analysis, PED, and holography.
Strong TEM application experience in new imaging and analytical techniques developments.
Proven tracking record in the field of electron optics and EELS analysis.
Ability to work independently or in teams, as needed.
Excellent knowledge in thermodynamics, kinetics, crystallography, electron optics, and EELS.
Experience in creative problem solving and innovative solutions.
Positive and ambitious attitude with adequate oral and written communications.
Ph.D. degree in Materials Science, Physics, or a semiconductor-related field.
