NY Creates is a leading research and development hub as well as a commercialization facilitator in advanced digital, analog, and power technologies.


Job Description:

This posting is to hire an experienced Process Integration Engineer working with a diverse suite of Silicon Photonics and Heterogeneous Integration (HI) technology offerings. 

This position will be focused on development activities for next generation silicon photonics technologies, including sensors, quantum photonics, chip carriers, interposers, and new material integration.

While much of this position's effort will revolve around fabricating devices using SUNY Poly's 300mm fab, the novel nature of this group's work requires hands-on simulation, design, processing, inspections, testing, and development.

Responsibilities for Development Engineer

Job responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Creation of new devices and technologies from conceptualization, to simulation, design, process development, integration, testing, and delivery of hardware.
  • Interacting with customers or development partners to understand the specific requirements of a project and to update on challenges, risks, and progress.
  • Coordinating with vendors such as the mask house, dicing/packaging, and any outsourced processes.
  • Integration support for the core AIM Photonics MPW program.
  • Writing reports, papers, and/or patents as appropriate.
  • Other reasonable duties as assigned.



  • M.S. degree in Chemical Engineering, Materials Science, Electrical Engineering, or equivalent Engineering and/or AND 6+ years relevant professional industry experience.


  • Ph.D in Chemical Engineering, Materials Science, Electrical Engineering, or equivalent Engineering and/or Science discipline AND 3+ years relevant professional industry experience


  • The successful individual must demonstrate excellent oral and written communication, interpersonal, and organizational skills.
  • Ability to work well under pressure, in a fast-paced environment, and be able to execute a variety of tasks on short notice is a must.
  • Candidate must exhibit the ability to work independently and as a part of a multifaceted team, as required. The needs of the organization can change quickly and therefore the person hired for this position should be flexible and able to learn new topics quickly.

This position is contingent on the satisfactory completion of a background check; this position may require annual background checks.


Experience in one or more of the following topics is highly desired:

  • Process development experience in multiple sectors (LTH, RIE, INS, MTL, CMP, PLT, WET, RTP, ION, EPI)
  • CMOS Process Integration experience; sustaining and/or developing processes in a 300mm wafer fabrication facility.
  • Process Integration experience non-CMOS technologies (MEMS, sensors, magnetics, photonics, etc)
  • Experience with 2.5D/3D integration and/or heterogeneous integration
  • Background in modeling or device physics of photonic devices, specifically silicon or III-V photonics
  • Familiarity with IC layout and verification tools (KLayout, Cadence, Mentor Graphics, Synopsys)
  • Demonstrated hands-on problem solver
