Applied Materials

Position  : Systems Engineer

Position Outline

  • Modeling of control systems for semiconductor tools
  • Build physical models coupled with experimental data
    Job Description

  • Construct lumped parameter models of multi-physics dynamic systems, specifically involving servo mechanisms, fluid flow, thermal, electrical networks (RLC and transistor circuits), etc.
  • Decompose system into functional sub-systems, develop physics-based and data-driven dynamic plant models.
  • Work on the thermal, flow, plasma, electrical and controls aspects of the system; Build complex system level models.
  • Work with the cross-functional teams to deliver high fidelity model-based controls.
  • Develop and execute test plans that generate data to calibrate and validate the models.
  • Generate and present high-quality technical reports and interface documents to internal stake holders.

    Required Competencies

  • MS/PhD in physical science, engineering or applied mathematics discipline. Ph.D. highly desirable. (ME, ChemE, EE/EC, or related field)
  • More than 5 years of experience in dynamic modeling and simulation skills using systems simulation software such as Matlab/Simulink, Simscape, AMESim, Modelica/Dymola, Easy5.
  • Knowledge of high-level scripting languages such as Matlab, Python etc.
  • Knowledge of transport phenomena, plasma physics, reaction kinetics and vacuum physics.
  • Drive projects independently and multi-tasking without losing effectiveness.
  • Excellent communication skills.

    Desired Competencies

  • Hands-on experimentation experience is desirable.
  • Familiarity with time and frequency domain techniques to analyze signals and systems.
  • SISO and MIMO control system design techniques. Experience with classical loop shaping techniques, feedback and feed forward design. Optimal control and general familiarity with optimization techniques.
  • Exposure to adaptive control techniques.
  • Understanding finite precision effects and other issues dealing with implementing control systems.
