Materials Engineering Scientist

Company: Entegris
Category: Professional Services


Type: Full Time

Entegris is seeking a Materials Engineering Scientist to join their growing team, in support of CMP Pad and Brush development. As a Materials Enginering Scientist, you will be responsible for developing innovative polymer materials and designs for Entegris’s Chemical Mechanical Polishing (CMP) Pad and Post CMP (PCMP) Cleaning Brush products. You will grow your fundamental understanding of product performance in target applications, and work in a cross functional environment with our business, customer interfacing, and commercialization teams to develop cutting-edge new products and solve polymer material and engineering problems. Your results and efforts will have a direct impact on advancing semiconductor technology, enabling a whole new generation of electronic devices. Responsibilities:

  • Develop new materials to meet the design intent for CMP Pad and PCMP Brush products. Learn about and identify the thermal-mechanical, structural, and chemical design rules of different CMP applications in order to improve the understanding of structure-property-CMP performance relationships with advanced knowledge of scientific principles, experimental design, and advanced characterizations.
  • Work closely with designers, other scientists, and engineers to develop unique pad/brush solutions. Apply ‘division of labor’ principle for achieving the requirements around Materials, Design Geometry, etc.Translate CMP requirements into Materials and Chemistry designs and develop material solutions accordingly
  • Partner with commercialization team to develop strategies to scale up the new designs and prototypes, from lab scale to prototyping scale, and to product scale to support internal testing, customer sampling and qualifications.
  • Develop Material’s Design Rules and build a knowledge base around such. Own the materials database, including Materials Design specifications for pads and brushes. Identify and develop Materials Design rules for Pads and Brushes for different CMP applications.
  • Become familiar with Materials Testing methods for Polymers; Develop internal testing capabilities and identify external partners. Apply advanced testing methods to build Pads and Brush Materials Relational Database.
  • Collaborate with internal supply chain material expert and occasionally with suppliers to design new raw materials, identify new sources, and optimize raw material for the scale-up of our product.
