GW’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) provides leading edge programs in electrical and computer engineering in order to provide leadership in a rapidly evolving global information society in the service of humanity and to advance the state of knowledge in our disciplines by actively pursuing scholarly research for publication and dissemination.

ECE Research Associate works primarily in the cleanroom facilities at the US Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, DC. The focus of the research centers on developing and executing a reliable and effective process flow which enables transfer printing of microscale chiplets, and developing a separate process flow to fabricate solar cells on the subsequent microscale structures.

The Research Associate duties include:
Designing masks for standard photolithography processes.
Standard cleanroom procedures such as wet and dry chemical etching; dielectric and metal deposition; inspection techniques such as Nomarski imaging, scanning electron microscopy and profilometry.
Developing an epitaxial lift-off process for reproducible transfer printing of microscale chiplets of III-V semiconductors.
Data analysis, including transfer length method measurements, dark current-voltage and light current-voltage measurements, in order to improve and optimize device process flows.
Participate in regular technical meetings to share and discuss recent results, challenges and successes to the technical team. Must be able to communicate complex scientific findings in a clear, concise and accurate manner.
Performs other work related duties as assigned. The omission of specific duties does not preclude the supervisor from assigning duties that are logically related to the position.

Require’s a master’s degree and 1 year of experience in the field or in a related area.
