Job Description

The Advanced Imager Technology Group performs research and development of imager devices and subsystem-level technology for the DoD and scientific community. The imager efforts include advanced silicon and compound semiconductor based focal-plane technologies for applications such as ground- and space-based surveillance, adaptive optics, and astronomy. These focal planes address special requirements, for example, large-format gigapixel arrays, very high-speed imagers (100 ps exposures), time-of-arrival detectors (LADAR receiver), and low-light-level imaging applications. World-class charge-coupled device (CCD) imagers, fabricated by this Group, have been used in a variety of high-end scientific applications, for example, focal planes for the Chandra X-ray telescope and other preeminent astronomical observatories. The Group's efforts span the range of device and materials development, integrated circuit design and fabrication, custom packaging, detector hybridization, and the development of control and readout electronics for system-level demonstrations.

The Advanced Imager Technology Group is seeking to hire a specialist with responsibilities in the packaging of compound semiconductor devices. Specifically, the work will focus on aligning and attaching various semiconductor and optical materials such as InP, GaAs, and GaP with sub-micron accuracy. This is a hands-on fabrication position that will involve development and operation of manual and semi-automated equipment for packaging.

Requirements: Graduation from a two year technical school or Bachelor’s degree, and 5-10 years of experience with packaging various semiconductor and optical materials, particularly using epoxy and solder techniques. Must be capable of following standard operating procedures (SOPs), have strong data analysis skills, and demonstrated written and oral communication skills. Must be able to work independently and in a team environment. Basic computer skills and experience with Microsoft Office applications are required. Experience with the development of measurement systems including the generation of data acquisition software (e.g., Matlab) is preferred.

U.S. Citizenship is required. MIT Lincoln Laboratory is an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment and will not be discriminated against on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, veteran status, disability status, or genetic information.
