Our international client, a world leading organisation in the IT/Software market, is now hiring a Nanofabrication Engineer (wafer processing for epitaxy).

Their research is focused on the development of new hybrid semiconductor-superconductor platforms to enable the application of Majorana bound states for topological quantum computing. Material science and fabrication are the foundation and the enablers of qubit devices. They deal with complex stacks of different materials combined at the nanoscale and require state-of-the art metrology and in-depth morphological, structural and compositional analysis. Fabrication of qubit devices is a challenging, multi-step process pushing the boundaries of nanotechnology and nano-patterning techniques. You can play a key role in the development of their ground-breaking approach to quantum computing by helping to realize high-throughput and highly reproducible pre-patterned substrates to ensure continuation of epitaxial growth activities, such as molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) for realization of quantum devices with quality and control well beyond the current state of the art.

They are searching for an excellent nano-fabrication engineer to contribute to the development, fabrication and scaling up the pre-patterned substrates for epitaxial growth of qubit devices.


Job Profile for Nanofabrication Engineer (wafer processing for epitaxy)

Responsibilities will include but not be limited to:

  • Define and execute routine substrate fabrication (nano-patterning) to support MBE growth activities
  • Develop high-yield, reproducible nano-patterning recipes for substrate preparation and advance substrate engineering processes
  • Prepare CAD drawings and schematics for mask designs as needed
  • Monitor, control, and qualify the developed processes
  • Coordinate with materials growers, device designers, cleanroom staff for an effective “substrate fabrication -> MBE growth reproducibility” feedback loop
  • Communicate with external suppliers of wafers; order and catalogue wafer stock
  • Submit machine shop orders for the custom fabrication of assemblies and parts to enhance throughput of substrate preparation
  • Knowledge and recipes transfer to internal and external partners
  • Integrate all fabrication data and defined metrics/procedures into program-wide database, as well as provide summary reports to the MBE team and post-fabrication, characterization, measurements teams for newly developed substrates
  • Use critical thinking to solve complex problems
  • Work in teams or independently as required
