Manager, Microelectronics Fabrication Laboratory
MIT Lincoln Laboratory
Lexington, MA, USA
Position: Full Time

Job Description
The Advanced Technology Division at MIT Lincoln Laboratory performs research and development on components and subsystem level technologies that enable new DoD systems and advance the state-of-the-art for U.S. industry. Division expertise covers a range of technologies including biology, chemistry, computer science, device physics, integrated circuit design and fabrication, lithography, materials, nanofabrication, optics, optoelectronics, packaging, photonics, quantum information systems and RF technology. The Division seeks to hire a Manager for the Microelectronics Laboratory, a 70,000 square foot facility with 8,100 sq-ft of Class 10 space and 10,000 sq-ft of Class 100 space. This is a multi-process facility for developing advanced technologies such as CCD/CMOS imagers, avalanche photodiode arrays, 90-nm low power FDSOI CMOS, 180-nm mixed signal FDSOI CMOS, 3D circuit integration, Nb-based superconducting circuits, MEMs and microfluidics. The work in the facility spans from the production of complex circuits for prototype system demonstrations to developing novel devices in emerging technology areas. Current research thrusts include: applying digital devices to traditionally analog activities, heterogeneously integrated material systems for microsystems, power efficient microelectronics, and superconducting quantum electronics. The facility has just been upgraded with a production-class sub-90-nm toolset for 200-mm-diameter wafers. An experienced technical leader is needed to manage the Microelectronics Laboratory. The position requires balancing the needs of tightly-controlled, high-reliability processes for circuits such as one-of-a-kind sensors for space-borne applications with the needs of researchers developing experimental devices with novel materials and processes. This position will emphasize low volume, high assurance fabrication of innovative ground based, airborne, and space based components and subsystems. Since 1951, when MIT Lincoln Laboratory was established to build the nation's first air defense system, the Laboratory has been applying advanced technology to problems critical to national security. In addition to an impressive record of technical innovation in communications, space survellance, advanced electronics, and air and missile defense, today the Laboratory is also leading the way in newer areas such as cyber security, integrated sensing and decision support, and homeland protection. Behind every Laboratory solution are researchers with exceptional technical abilities and imagination, developing systems from the initial concept stage, through simulation and analysis, to design and prototyping, and finally to real world demonstrations. Cross-disciplinary collaboration and the breadth of Lincoln Laboratory's research enables continuous technical growth for its scientists - and they also inspire unparalleled creativity. In the past two years, MIT Lincoln Laboratory has been awarded eight R&D 100 Awards that recognize the year's 100 most significant innovations in technology.

Due to the unique nature of our work, we require U.S. citizenship.

1. PhD in Electrical Engineering, Materials Science, Physics, or related field. In lieu of a PhD, a relevant Masterís degree with 10 + years of directly related experience will be considered. Strong understanding of semiconductor materials and modern silicon fabrication technologies is critical to success in this role, as is operations and management experience in a semiconductor fabrication facility. This position will draw upon leadership skills, strong written and oral communication skills, and a successful track record in a team environment. Selection criteria will include: 2. Demonstrated record of success in a management role focusing on silicon fabrication. Successful leadership of diverse teams of engineers, scientists and technicians will be a key criterion. 3. Experience in collaborating with development teams to deliver semiconductor products into critical systems, ideally including innovative research and product development. 4. Operations experience that includes measurable process and yield improvement documented with appropriate data. 5. Demonstrated ability to participate in developing new business areas will be valued.
