Job Description

The RF Technology Group develops and demonstrates innovative radio-frequency (RF) technologies and integrated subsystems as solutions to emerging national security needs in radar, electronic warfare, signals intelligence and communications. To execute its RF research and development mission, the group is vertically integrated and develops antennas, transmit/receive modules, multichannel wideband receiver-exciters, high-throughput digital processing architectures, beamformers, active and passive RF circuits, new semiconductor devices and associated epitaxial material with subsequent device processing. Novel RF solutions are developed at the material and device level up through the full RF subsystem level, with an emphasis on highly integrated, small-form-factor RF subsystems. The group collaboratively interacts with research groups across the Laboratory to take projects from initial concept stage, through simulation and analysis, to design and prototyping, and finally to field demonstration.

The RF Technology group seeks an Assistant Staff to assist in the development and support of epitaxial crystal growth of wide bandgap semiconductor materials for next generation RF devices. Responsibilities include working as part of team under the direction of a lead material scientist to support chemical vapor deposition (CVD) growth processes including substrate preparation, process optimization and post-growth metrology. It is expected that a qualified candidate will have experience with in-situ metrology techniques and familiarity with reactor design necessary to make modifications and upgrades as warranted. Candidate should have experience operating CVD equipment in a commercial manufacturing environment. Additionally, it is highly desirable that the candidate will have experience in building a complete CVD reactor from the ground up.

Candidates should hold a BS in Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics, or related field or have 10+ years of relevant work experience. Hands-on experience developing, operating, and maintaining CVD systems is a must and experience with CAD tools such as SolidWorks is a plus.
