Location: Taichung, TXG, TW

Company: Micron


Req. ID: 99862 

Position Description

As a Senior Engineer in Micron’s Advanced Packaging Technology Development group at Taiwan Taichung, you will work in industry-leading semiconductor process technology related to new memory devices and technologies. In this position you will develop and optimize Chemical Mechanical Planarization (CMP) process needed for advanced memory stack integration flows. You will take ideas from conception through process development and implementation. You will be working alongside with Equipment Engineers, Process Development Engineers and Process Integration Engineers to focus and accelerate development of technology that will lead to a commercially successful high density memory.

General Responsibilities:

  • To develop new consumable and evaluate new hardware for Chemical Mechanical Planarization (CMP)
  • To design, optimize and characterize CMP process needed for successful integration
  • Organize well designed experiments to understand the interaction between process and hardware parameters and use this knowledge to optimize for best performance
  • To suggest and evaluate innovative CMP solutions with higher process margins
  • To work with various integration/structural impacts and constraints to enable functional device
  • To derive insightful inferences from the analysis of physical and electrical data and utilize the understanding to modify CMP processes to meet the device requirements  


  • Hands on experience with CMP polishing equipment which includes familiarity with equipment operation, optical metrology, profilometry, common polishing slurries, and polishing pads.
  • In-depth understanding of polishing mechanisms for dielectric and conductive CMP
  • Be a critical thinker and a team player and be able to handle constructive criticism from other team members and leverage input to drive projects forward.
  • Knowledge of material properties and characterization techniques
  • Possess a high degree of self-motivation, goal orientation and the ability to aggressively focus on solving problems and to learn new skills
  • Have the ability to plan and execute well-designed experiments and report results concisely.
  • Demonstrate dependability and willingness to take on responsibilities.
  • Expertise in new process/tool technology assessment
  • Ability to work on multiple projects and work through cross-disciplinary and cross-organizational logistical issues.
  • Strong communication and reporting skills both written and verbal.
  • Strong aptitude for research and development with interest and capability to create production worthy technologies
  • Proactive approach to problem/project management and good problem solving skills
  • The ability to work independently under minimal supervision.
  • The ability to work effectively across different organizations within Micron.
  • The ability to effectively organize, prioritize, and manage time and projects. 

Education and Experience:

PhD or MS with previous industry experience in Chemical Mechanical planarization.  Education background in Chemical, Mechanical, Electrical or Electronics Engineering or Material Science or Chemistry or related field of study is acceptable.
