Senior Research Engineer
The Penn State Electro-Optics Center (EOC) is a science and technology-based laboratory serving as a Defense Related Research Unit within The Pennsylvania State University. In this role the EOC is an integral part of one of the leading research universities in the nation and provides research, development, systems engineering and technology transfer for a wide range of Department of Defense and Industrial Sponsors. The EOC works very closely with the Penn State Materials Research Institute, the Penn State Applied Research Laboratory, numerous academic departments, DoD/Government Laboratories and Industry. The primary mission of the EOC is to develop and transition electronics and electro-optics technologies needed for the advancement of the nations defense capabilities.
Due to the expansion in programs for development of electronic materials, devices and sensors, there is a need for a Senior Research Engineer in the Penn State Electro-Optics Center Materials Group located in University Park (State College, PA). This position requires extensive experience in semiconductor device fabrication and characterization.
Qualifications: Candidates should possess and be able to apply advanced knowledge of semiconductor device design, fabrication and characterization to develop and transition RF, IR, and radiation detection technology. Candidates are expected to have a minimum of a MS degree (PhD preferred) in materials science, electrical engineering, physics, or a related field, with at least 15 years of experience in advanced semiconductor device fabrication and evaluation. Supervisory experience and expertise in semiconductor material characterization (SEM, Raman, XPS, XRD, TEM, Electrical characterization) are definite pluses.
Key Result Areas and Responsibilities:
Serve as the technical lead for applied research and development projects for a wide range of DoD and industrial sponsors. In addition, collaboration with academic faculty within Penn State and with other academic institutions for basic research projects is a key requirement.
Develop and lead experimental applied research programs for fabrication, testing, and analysis of a variety of devices including RF transistors, high voltage diodes, radiation detection sensors, and infrared sensors. Materials systems of interest currently include graphene, graphene-oxide, AlGaN/GaN, gadolinium oxide, boron nitride and molybdenum disulfide.
Lead efforts to improve transistor performance beyond state-of-the-art by carefully evaluating device parasitics via I/V, C/V, pulsed I/V, and RF characterization; and subsequently addressing parasitics through experimental research.
Lead efforts for the study and optimization of sensor performance including interfacing with nuclear engineering and infrared characterization staff. Support for characterization and fabrication of piezoelectric materials may also be required.
.Responsible for direct supervision of an experienced staff of fabrication and characterization technicians and will be required to work closely with graduate and undergraduate students.
This is a standing appointment within the EOC. Must be a U.S. Citizen to apply.
