Over deze vacature

If you are a successful FEM analyst and you want to take the next career step, this is an exciting opportunity for you – a chance to demonstrate how your conceptual thinking can contribute to truly innovative mechanical designs.

As an ASML FEM Analyst your activities will focus on FEM calculations, but within a world-leading organization this position offers much more scope to express and develop your talents. At ASML, FEM analysis is being used to contribute more than just mathematical predictions – your expertise combined with a flair for creative problem solving will generate ideas for use at the very forefront of the design process.

In addition, the result of your activities should be communicated to the members of the design teams. FEM modelling and analysis will be used to a large extend during your daily work.

Main responsibilities:

  • Perform (conceptual) FEM analysis. Validation of models by tests (pre/post test analysis)
  • Advice design engineer and architects
