About this vacancy

Thermal energy is everywhere around us, and goes everywhere. On one hand, we put hundreds of kilowatts into our machines to get things moving and illuminated, whereas on the other hand we are concerned about mill watts, micro kelvins and ultimately Pico meters of thermal expansion. All to get good optical performance in our lithography machines, that are used in semiconductor chip manufacturing.

Here practically all thermal engineering aspects are at play. Are you able to keep the overview in this dynamic and demanding environment? Will you steer the team towards design solutions with impact on our next generation machines? Will you be able to balance a robust thermal system design with all critical design parameters?

Job description

As a Thermal Engineer you help build high-tech machines, and an average day may look like this:

  • You align with your project leader and colleagues from different disciplines on priorities, task division and the long term plan. You also discuss the next tough steps on the Thermal Design Overview you have been building up for months;
  • Later that day, you gather with the analysts in your team to get a better understanding of their thermal test results. Don’t forget to prepare the presentation for the business case: you will need it to convince the stakeholders of your design-change proposal.
