ASML provides chipmakers with hardware, software and services to mass produce patterns on silicon, helping to build the electronic devices that keep us informed, entertained and connected. We’re a dynamic team of 28,000 people from 120 different nationalities and counting. Headquartered in Europe’s tech hub, the Brainport Eindhoven region in the Netherlands, we have over 60 locations in 16 countries and annual net sales of €14.0 billion in 2020.
ASML is a leading manufacturer of lithography equipment. In the latest systems, light, plasma and chemicals interact at surfaces. Optimizing processes requires a profound understanding of materials science, surface chemistry, plasma-material interactions and of photon induced processes. Since ASML works at cutting edge technology, a lot of phenomena are very unique and have a first-of-a-kind character.
To strengthen the materials science competence, ASML Research is looking for a computational materials scientist who can add value to the understanding of materials degradation in the operating environment.
You will work in a multidisciplinary team of Chemists, Physicists, Materials Scientists, Electrical and Mechanical Engineers.
You will bring multi-scale simulations into the big picture by ideating and developing multi-scale modeling workflows which combine multiple models bridging time- and length-scales (DFT, MD, CFD, FEM, FD), identifying the existing conceptual and methodological gaps required to develop these workflows, and proposing innovative solutions to move forward.
You have demonstrated experience with modeling of impurities in materials and in particular hydrogen-related diffusion and mechanical phenomena. Furthermore, you play a key role in implementing and supporting a state-of-the-art infrastructure for materials development.
Based on high-level problem descriptions you define hypotheses on underlying mechanisms governing the behaviors observed from experimental measurements, set up elaborate models to verify the validity of such hypotheses, provide fundamental understanding and translate the results of the simulations into thermodynamic and kinetic equations that can be used to describe the behavior of the system at the material and component level, thereby suggesting design rules to improve product performance.
Your job requires hands-on simulation/modeling of actual systems and problems with required software tools.
On the other hand, you have to proactively extend an existing network of commercial and academic partners to a chemistry and materials modeling ecosystem that guarantees the access of ASML to state-of-the-art developments and techniques in the field.
Context of the position
The Research Materials Science and Chemistry group is part of the Research department of ASML. This group identifies and fills in technological gaps in the future roadmap of lithography and the lithography market. Our focus is on advanced material research and on the interaction of light (13.5 nm) with the gaseous background in our tools and on solid materials. We work in small teams and deliver solutions that can be transferred to Development and Engineering. We work together with external research institutes and universities.
This position may require access to controlled technology, as defined in the Export Administration Regulations (15 C.F.R. §730, et seq.). Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require ASML to proceed with candidates who are immediately eligible to access controlled technology.
ASML is an international company with Dutch roots. More information about working
