Applied Materials

The Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) Center of Excellence at Applied Material is seeking outstanding engineer in CFD Analysis for hardware and process development of Semiconductor manufacturing equipment.  We are looking for engineers with strong CFD modeling skills in fluid flow, reactive flows and thermal analysis, who is eager to use simulations to solve complex problems and test the hypotheses. Uses best practices and knowledge of internal or external business issues to improve products or services. Solves complex problems; takes a new perspective using existing solutions. Works independently, receives minimal guidance.

Required Qualifications and Skills

Masters (with 3-5 years of experience) in mechanical/chemical engineering
Must have in-depth knowledge of CFD, fluid dynamics, thermal (with radiation heat transfer) and mixing/reactive flows (mandatory)
Expert user of commercially available CFD analysis tools such as CFD-ACE+ and/or Fluent
Excellent communication skills, Knowledge in writing reports.
Knowledge of semiconductor manufacturing equipment and processes (especially CVD and ALD processes)
Work experience in semiconductor industry is plus
Key Responsibilities:

Develop CFD models to analyze the problems related to flow/mixing/reactive flow and thermal environment.
Interpret analysis results with respect to results obtained by lab testing procedures, converting these results into practical design suggestions
Works on difficult CAE problems to assist product development
Works on identifying product design and development problems where CAE analysis can accelerate development
Proactively validates/correlates results with real world data and makes model improvements as deemed necessary
Very good understanding of business unit processes and hardware; good knowledge of data analysis techniques to summarize CAE data
Generates high-level engineering test reports and presents CAE results/conclusions to the design/process engineering community
