Characterization engineer

5-10 jaar

EpiGaN nv manufactures advanced semiconductor wafers for next-generation RF and Power electronics. After growth of III-Nitrides material by chemical processes, in-depth epiwafer characterization is required both for product qualification and for next-generation product development. Material characterization is preferably non-destructive and includes in particular, High resolution X-Ray measurements, contact-less electrical characterization, photoluminescence and surface defect analysis. EpiGaN is looking for a motivated and experienced engineer/physicist, with a strong background in semiconductor material analysis, to be responsible for the measurement tools, data analysis and measurements procedures. The candidate should be eager to work in a clean-room environment, installing new measurement tools and developing adequate new characterization methodologies.

You will be responsible for:


  • Definition, with the support of the operating team, of standard measurement strategies on epiwafer material for product qualification purpose
  • Set-up measurement routines, statistical analysis of the results and database integration
  • Development of more detailed measurements and related data analysis on advanced structures for R&D purpose;
  • Hardware support for characterization tools (HR-XD, Microscopy analysis, photoluminescence, contact-less electrical tools, surface defect analysis…)
  • Installation and start-up of new characterization tools and develop related tool operation/measurement procedures
  • Analysis, using appropriate software, of the measurement data from the different tools
  • Follow-up and update of measurement procedures, in collaboration with the quality manager
  • Continuously update and improve measurement methodologies to enable production ramp-up, increase yield and enlarge product portfolio;
  • You will be reporting to the COO.

Your Profile:

  • Master’s or PhD engineering degree in physics, chemistry, material science or electrical engineering (electronics)
  • More than 5 years working experience in the semiconductor industry
  • A solid background in general semiconductor technology
  • Hands-on experience with semiconductor characterization is mandatory
  • Background in material characterization techniques (X-Ray, contact-less electrical, microscopy, AFM, PL, SIMS, TEM…)
  • Project management experience
  • Good communication skills
  • Proven ability to work independently, while maintaining open communication
  • A systematic attitude, an open mind and team player
  • A good working knowledge of the English language
