Job Code: MPI-Halle-Div-NanoD
Job offer from May 18, 2020
The Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics (MPI-MSP), Halle, Germany, Department NISE, Director Prof. Stuart S.P. Parkin, is searching for a Nano-Device Engineer (m/f/d) to develop and fabricate novel nano-devices for Spintronic and Cognitive technologies. The successful candidate will develop and optimize processes to fabricate nano-devices such as Racetrack memories, and Magnetic Tunnel Junctions for various applications.
The MPI-MSP is a world-leading institute that explores novel materials and devices, and systems of devices, to allow for innovative technologies, particularly those that could enable highly energy-efficient, computing and memory-storage technologies. These include bio-inspired materials and thinking systems, and materials and devices that can support quantum technologies. The Institute has been entirely rebuilt with modernized offices, meeting rooms, and laboratories, a state-of-the art cleanroom, and an RBS facility, that are designed to encourage interactions and interdisciplinary research.
- Development and fabrication of complex nano-devices with high-yield and reproducibility
- Monitor, control, and qualify the developed processes
- Coordination of an effective device fabrication/ device performance feedback loop
- Operate and contribute to the maintenance of systems in the cleanroom
- Constant self-improvement in order to keep abreast of the latest developments in building nanoscopic devices
- Master's or Ph.D. degree in Physics, Materials Science, or Engineering or equivalent with 4-5 years of experience in nano-device fabrication and testing
- Proficiency in nano-device fabrication that requires multiple lithography and fabrication steps
- Experience working in a cleanroom environment
- Understanding of nanofabrication engineering principles and process development with an emphasis on thin film (< 10nm) deposition and dry/wet chemical etching
- Experience in CMP is an asset
- Ability to quickly integrate and work in a multi-disciplinary, international team and effectively collaborate and communicate to meet the deadlines and deliver against program goals
- Excellent communication skills with fluency in English
- A state-of the art clean room with RAITH PIONEER Two and JEOL JBX-8100F EBL tools, maskless optical laser writers (MLA 150 and uMLA), and a heated probe lithography tool, as well as advanced ion-milling systems, PECVD, RIE, ALD, e-beam and magnetron sputtering deposition systems, CMP, Ga and plasma focused ion milling that make possible the fabrication of complex 3D nanodevices and systems.
- A world-leading institute with state-of-the-art capabilities for exploratory thin film materials and device research
- A stimulating international working environment with great cultural diversity
- Remuneration and social benefits depending on education and prior experience according to TVöD
- Fixed term contract, initially for 2 years with the perspective of extension
- In English can be uploaded as a single pdf file at our application website with reference to MPI-Halle-Div-NanoD until June 30, 2020. Please supply the name and email of at least one reference.
- The Max-Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals.
- Furthermore, the Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.
