KLA has always had a close relationship with physics and data.  Our optical and electron beam inspection and measurement tools use cutting edge physics models, both for hardware design and as part of their algorithms.  AI, including several traditional machine learning techniques and deep learning are routinely used to process this data to meet application requirements.

The AI & Modeling Center of Excellence, centered in KLA’s R&D facility in Ann Arbor, MI, was setup with the mission of advancing KLA’s traditional strengths in physics and data and providing implementation solutions for multiple KLA Inspection and Metrology products targeted at the semiconductor manufacturing industry.

As a part of this group, you will be part of a world class team of physicists, HPC system designers, machine learning and application engineers who build cutting edge solutions for modeling complex imaging techniques and semiconductor processes.  You will also work with a data scientists and AI infrastructure engineers whose mission is to build and scale machine learning based solutions for our semiconductor customers.

We are looking for engineers in a few different fields.  If you are passionate about Physics Modeling, High Performance Computing – HPC (including GPU), ML, Data, or Cloud technologies – this is the place for you!


An intern with the AI and Modeling Center of excellence will work in one or more of the following areas.  Interns will be technically supported and mentored thoughout their stay with KLA.

* Work with traditional machine learning and deep learning techinques to meet and improve results on KLA products.

* Experiment with new and novel techniques to improve results or reduce compute cost of various modeling techniques.

* Build tools for more efficient experimentation.

* Manage data used for training and experiementation of AI and physics modeling systems.

* Image processing.

* Speeding up physics models.

* Developing software tools and solutions for KLA products.
