Job Title: Semiconductor Patterning Data Scientist

JobID: 12540-127357#13107134

Location: San Jose, CA, 95115, USA

Description: ## Introduction

Hermes Microvision, Inc. (HMI), an ASML company, is a leading supplier of advanced E-beam inspection and pattern verification systems used for advanced semiconductor devices. HMI has multiple years of e-beam application experience and leadership in semiconductor factories, focused on high resolution and voltage contrast imaging. As part of ASML, HMI will boost ASML’s holistic lithographic portfolio of (i) lithography exposure systems, (ii) computational lithography and (iii) metrology. Between these three cornerstones ASML offers application products for process window enhancement, control and detection. As part of our team, you will have the opportunity to go beyond yourself in developing more advanced techniques and pushing the boundaries of technology.

Pattern Fidelity Metrology enables the prediction and reduction of defects, as well as yield improvement through the combined use of ASML models, metrology data, and scanner control.

## Job Mission

We are seeking candidates to join a team of engineers developing new leading-edge products. _Pattern Fidelity Metrology_, or PFM, provides maps of pattern defects and out-of-spec patterns for every wafer processed in the Fab. PFM uses state-of-the-art electron-beam inspection systems (eP5) to verify locations where patterns are prediction to be out-of-spec. For prediction, PFM relies on a combination of full-chip computational lithography to identify patterns most sensitive to process variability, as well as wafer metrology data to map out process variations on every wafer.

The successful candidate will report to ASML Silicon Valley’s PFM Product Engineering manager and work with the team to solve the challenges associated with finding critical defects at the 10-nm node and below.

## Job Description

The data scientist function is to perform investigative studies and exploratory data analysis to gain deep understanding of the challenges from mathematical, physical and business perspective. Responsibilities include:

* Understand existing product features and data flow, dive into the underlying data, apply relevant engineering or statistical methods, and document and communicate results to the functional development team.
* Demonstrate and prototype methodology and algorithms to enable product development, as well as development of best practices for standard or customized applications.
* Design experiments and organize data from varied sources with the aim of generating actionable insights, including machine learning or statistics-based algorithms for prediction and optimization.
* Influence progress of relevant product development and provide expertise to development teams when needed, and thinking strategically about applications, gaps and technical-business tradeoffs.

## Education

* MS Or Ph.D. in a scientific or quantitative discipline

## Experience

* Experience programming in R, MATLAB or Python preferred
* Preferably 2 or more years of experience in semiconductor environment with a strong emphasis on lithography, defect inspection, electron-based metrology, data analysis, or semiconductor processing
* Insight into leading-edge chipmakers’ needs in terms of software, data analysis tools and control strategies
* Knowledge with machine learning techniques such as regression and classification, cluster analysis, and related optimization algorithms.
* Experience developing new methodologies and algorithms for product design
* Knowledge of data analysis techniques (probability, statistics, machine learning) with strong analytical skills. Ability to solve problems with a creative blend of analytical, mathematical and technical skills
* Solid data-oriented scripting and statistical programming, with experience in data exploration, manipulation and cleaning
* Effective visualization, and oral and written communication skills
* Must able to work independently and also effectively as a member of a team.
* Working knowledge of IC manufacturing, semiconductor process technology, and related fields
