Vincent Schade, PhD
Portland Technology Development
The Portland Technology Development (PTD) group of Intel Corporation currently has openings for PhDs to support/direct R&D of advanced processing methods. Candidates hired for these positions will be responsible for developing the next generation of Intel’s microprocessors.
Ph.D. candidates in Chemical Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or related fields are encouraged to apply. Criteria for selection include: a strong academic record, demonstrated experimental and data analysis expertise, superior critical thinking skills, an ability to drive and take responsibility for projects and a solid peer-reviewed publication record. Experience using and maintaining scientific equipment is preferred. Semiconductor processing experience is not mandatory.
Openings are immediately available at Intel’s primary development facility (Ronler Acres) located ~10 miles west of Portland, OR. Please see a more detailed job description included below.
Interested candidates should email resumes to email@example.com (please include PhD GPA and list of journal-publications in resume)
PTD Module Engineers are responsible for leading scientific research and enabling manufacture of innovative device architectures coupled with the realization of these architectures. Responsibilities include designing, executing and analyzing experiments necessary to meet engineering specifications for their process. A Module Engineer participates in the development of intellectual property and the development of the equipment necessary to exploit understanding gained in research (in collaboration with equipment suppliers.) The Engineer must work effectively with the equipment supplier to identify shortcomings, propose and evaluate hardware modification to mitigate issues and operate the manufacturing line in order to integrate the many individual steps necessary for the manufacture of complex microprocessors. Module Engineers are also responsible for overseeing in-situ ramp to manufacturing volumes to demonstrate that the technology meets requirements while simultaneously transferring the technology to counterparts in manufacturing via ‘Copy Exactly!’ methodology. Module ownership includes the install and qualification of manufacturing capacity at the development site and audit installation/qualification and supervision of first full loop at the production site. Must hold a PhD.
You must possess a minimum of a Ph.D. degree majoring in Physics, Material Science, Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemistry, or a related field.
Criteria for selection include: a strong academic record, demonstrated experimental and data analysis expertise, superior critical thinking skills, excellent written and verbal communication skills, creativity and flexibility to thrive under changing priorities, strong teamwork skills, an ability to drive and take responsibility for projects and a solid peer-reviewed publication record. Experience using and maintaining scientific equipment is preferred. Semiconductor processing experience is not mandatory.
