Process Integration Engineer

Imec CMORE Technologies department offers companies to develop and fabricate customized specialty microsystems that cannot be produced in standard CMOS technology. The basis of our CMORE fab is an advanced 0.13µm CMOS platform that runs a 24/7 operation. To do this, we have added platforms for processing of various CMOS imagers – hyperspectral, backside illuminated, embedded CCD-, MEMS and NEMS, photonics, and microfluidics chips. We are able to tune our technology to the demands of the customer and develop the technology flow for both prototypes and low-volume production.

Job description

A Process Integration Engineer develops and implements silicon process technology for the manufacture of integrated silicon devices. The successful candidate will be responsible for device architecture, process flow implementation, process module development, electrical characterization, technology qualification for new silicon technologies, developments and transfers of existing silicon technologies to a mass manufacturing foundry partner.
Your primary tasks, duties and responsibilities will include:

  • Create technology process flows with process specifications.
  • Process module development and characterization.
  • Design statistical experiments and analyze results to optimize device architecture and/or process modules. 
  • Coordinate process unit and process module development. 
  • Drive process and device optimization. 
  • Facilitate process improvements and/or fixes for problems. 
  • Improve process quality and yield of technologies released for low volume manufacturing.


  • You have a Master’s or PhD degree in Electrical Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Materials Engineering or a related technical field.
  • As a Master you have a minimum of 5 years of relevant experience. As a PhD you have a minimum of 3 years of relevant experience. 
  • You have a relevant experience of 3 – 5 years as a semiconductor process engineer. Experience in a volume manufacturing environment and in process integration is preferred.
  • You have experience in wafer fabrication.
  • You understand the basics of semiconductor device physics, for example: CMOS, DMOS and Bipolar devices.
  • Good understanding of or experience in non-CMOS technologies like photonics, MEMS and CMOS image sensors is a definite advantage.
  • You are experienced with measurement and evaluation of electrical test structures and correlation to process parameters.
  • You are able to utilize DOE and statistical analysis. Knowledge of “JMP” is an asset.
  • You show good communication and reporting skills as you will be required to interface with internal and external customers. 
  • You are able to take initiative and work independently, while being part of a team. 
  • You show proven problem solving skills.
  • Since you will be working in a highly international environment and will be maintaining a good contact with colleagues and co-workers from all over the world, fluency in English is essential.
