Job Description
Lam Research is looking for a modeling engineer to perform computational fluid dynamics and plasma physics models. The candidate would be responsible for developing physically accurate models of Lam Research reactor chambers, electroplating reactors, plasma systems, magnetic fields, and related components. The modeling engineer would develop complex models with little guidance, have a deep understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of our hardware and processes, and use this understanding to provide insight to others and to help guide the design process. The ideal candidate exercises judgment within broadly defined practices and policies to choose appropriate techniques, validate model accuracy, determine appropriate actions, and communicate the results to relevant parties both verbally and in written form. The modeling engineer would find ways to extend our modeling capabilities and provide guidance to other modeling engineers. The candidate must be graduating with an MS or PhD with research concentration in plasma physics, ideally from a chemical or aerospace engineering department. The ideal candidate’s research experience would include plasma and fluids modeling. Excellent written and oral communication skills. Strong knowledge of modeling techniques. Ability to self manage and self motivate. Ability to work on functional or cross functional team. Excellent project management and scheduling skills. Travel: 0-5%. KNOWLEDGE: Having broad expertise or unique knowledge, uses skills to contribute to development of company objectives and principles and to achieve goals in creative and effective ways. JOB COMPLEXITY: Works on significant and unique issues where analysis of situations or data requires an evaluation of intangibles. Exercises independent judgment in methods, techniques and evaluation criteria for obtaining results. Contacts pertain to significant matters often involving coordination among groups. SUPERVISION: Acts independently to determine methods and procedures on new or special assignments. May supervise the activities of others. EXPERIENCE: The ideal candidate would have a PhD in a plasma science field (physics, chemical engineering, aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering).
