Micron Technology’s vision is to transform how the world uses information to enrich life and our dedication to people, innovation, tenacity, teamwork, and customer focus allows us to fulfill our mission to be a global leader in memory and storage solutions. This means conducting business with integrity, accountability, and professionalism while supporting our global community.


As a Process Development Engineering Intern in Micron's R&D/Technology Development group, you will work on world-class, state-of-the-art semiconductor processes available in few locations in the entire world.   Our leading-edge technology makes features less than 10nm.  You will contribute and learn about process module development for memory devices, in addition to other process and process integration related activities! You will work with Micron engineers, technology partners and vendors to develop unit processes that meet device requirements for next-generation semiconductors, integrate processes as part of our team, and ultimately provide technology that transfers to Micron’s worldwide manufacturing network. Our process development teams work in the fields of Optical lithography, Plasma Etching, Wet Chemical Processing, Thin Film and Metal depositions, and Chemical-Mechanical Planarization.   


As part of this team, Micron is looking for engineers with skills in Data Science.  Our modern semiconductor fab can produce billions of bits of data.  With individually addressable yield data, Optical Emission Spectra, MEMS Microbalance weight data, In-line RGA, On-board Scatterometry, On-Board Imaging, and many others IoT sources, the possibilities to integrate Engineering + Data Science are endless.


This position is being offered in Boise, ID.


Responsibilities and Duties:

  • Work with engineering teams to develop new processes to meet Moore’s Law of Scaling cadence, meet structural and device requirements, and solve integrated yield problems
  • Document and communicate plans, status, and results of R&D projects in written reports and presentations, including the analysis and interpretation of data, and recommendations for future work.
  • Work collaboratively with other Micron engineers and equipment vendors to improve and test new equipment, new chemicals, new process analysis software, and drive process improvements
