Applied Materials Electrical Engineer IV - (E4) in Gloucester, Massachusetts

This position in Electrical Engineering will support a development team in the design and analysis of high voltage, RF, and EM fields based devices, circuits and power supplies for use in semiconductor wafer fabrication equipment.

This position will collaborate with design teams to specify and design the following design areas: electrostatic devices, electrostatic chucks, power supplies, high voltage connectors, automated test equipment and vacuum feedthroughs.

The candidate should be familiar with characterizing the impedance of a high voltage system consisting of cables, interconnect, feedthroughs, and electrodes. This includes a good understanding of how dielectric properties of materials and physical dimensions determine the capacitance of a device. In addition, the candidate should be able to develop the system electrical requirements that ensures reliable performance while meeting safety requirements.

The candidate should be familiar with test equipment for analyzing system electrical parameters such as impedance, surface resistance, and measuring real time I/V waveforms. The candidate should also be familiar with time domain and frequency domain signal analysis to characterize a system that is functioning properly.


Education: BS in Electrical Engineering

Experience: Minimum 10 years’ experience designing and developing high voltage electrical systems for scientific instruments or industrial process machines.

  • Design and characterization of high voltage systems.

  • Testing and measuring electrostatic fields

  • Measuring real time signals, and correlating frequency domain analysis to system performance

  • Electrical characterization of dielectrics, ceramics, metals, coatings, surface resistance

  • Design of capacitance based sensors like manometers, or force gauges is a plus.

  • Design of electrostatic chucks, or electrostatic actuators is a plus.

  • Design of electrical systems for industrial process equipment, vacuum process equipment, or semiconductor equipment is a plus
