Job Description:


Making a Material Difference is at the core of our DNA. For more than 30 years, we have developed differentiated technologies and built expertise and know-how that has enabled world-changing devices such as LED lighting, data storage, advanced computing and mobile devices to reach industrial scale. We help customers overcome technical and cost barriers that make it possible to convert novel materials into high-yielding device performance at production volumes. Our customers produce the newest, fastest, smallest, and most efficient electronic components used in devices to help deliver a better world.

We serve the semiconductor and emerging high-growth markets. Our process equipment and technology are used to manufacture advanced semiconductors, LEDs, displays, photonics, VCSELs, power electronics, compound semiconductors, hard disk drives, MEMS and wireless chips.


Veeco's Somerset location is looking for a technically competent, motivated, and dynamic Senior Research Scientist to take on a highly visible technical leadership role for developing critical components in the MOCVD process chamber. This role will work with our team to conceptualize designs for MOCVD technology development.


* Develop and utilize computer models of MOCVD reactors and processes using commercial Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) packages to predict reactor performance during the design stage of next-generation product lines and for continuous improvement of the existing tools.
* Develop the technical roadmap for MOCVD components, work with cross-functional problem-solving teams using structured methods such as 8D, FMEA, and model-based problem solving.
* Develop specifications, direct design, develop prototypes, and support execution of functional tests to rapidly transfer technologies to production and manufacturing groups.
* Coordinate and supervise modeling efforts by consulting partners to meet the goals of development projects.
* Participate in performance analysis of critical components in the field and regularly interact with field teams and customers to identify and solve reliability challenges using structured problem-solving approaches.


Master's degree in Engineering (Chemical, Mechanical, Materials, Electrical) or Physics and 6 years of related experience or a PhD and 3 years of related experience is required. Experience in a Design, Modeling and Simulation environment for fluid flow, thermal analysis, chemistry applications and/or mechanical analysis is a must. Direct experience with commercial CFD and FEA (Both Structural and Thermal) software packages is required (ANSYS FLUENT and GAMBIT/ANSYS Meshing for CFD, ANSYS and ANSYS Workbench for FEA). Ability to travel 30% to Veeco's Somerset, NJ, office is required. Position may involve some international travel as well.

Knowledge, Skills and Abilities:

* Experience working with a capital equipment company preferred.
* Ability to deliver presentations and directly communicate with senior management and customers.
* In-depth experience with Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and in all aspects of applying CFD technology, including CAD clean up, pre-processing, mesh generation and refinement, solution convergence, and post-processing.
* Experience with chemistry analysis techniques (ex. ANSYS Chemkin, STR CVDSim) highly desirable.
* Experience with flow/thermal physics, species transport, and complex gas phase and surface reaction modeling.
* Proven ability to take calculated technical risks in product development planning, propose technical and design improvements and solutions, and put realistic risk retirement test plans in place.
* Knowledge of MOCVD or CVD processes and materials highly desirable.

Veeco is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. Applicants will be considered for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, protected veteran status, disability, or any other characteristics protected by applicable federal, state or local law.
