Northrop Grumman | Linthicum MD 21090 USA | Full Time | Posted: 06/21/2019

Job Descriptiontop

An exciting opportunity currently exists for a Superconducting Device Modeling and Simulation Engineer to join our team. NGC's team develops, designs, tests, and characterizes superconducting circuits and modules for cutting-edge defense and commercial applications. This position is located in Linthicum, MD.

As a Superconducting Device Modeling and Simulation Engineer you will be responsible for supporting senior engineering staff to develop various process and device and package models using Multi-physics tools and finite elemental analysis to enable predictive analysis of superconducting devices and die packaging components including materials, thin films, multi-chip modules, interposers and bump bonds.

Responsibilities include:

(1) Use multi-physics tools or finite elemental analysis to analyze and understand the detailed performance of various devices, device elements, die packages and package components.

(2) Develop device model formulations and model extraction algorithms for structural elements.

(3) Develop physics-based models for test structures.

(4) Define and execute device element characterization test plans.

(5) Develop understanding of model limitations and opportunities for improvement.

(6) Work closely with SCE design team to troubleshoot test circuit level performance issues.

(7) Evaluation of anticipated and characterized reliability.

This requisition may be filled at a higher grade based on qualifications listed below.

This requisition may be filled with a Principal or Sr. Principal.

Basic Qualifications for Principal:
- Bachelors in Applied Physics, Electrical Engineering, Materials Science or related disciplinewith 5 yrs of professional experience in device physics, device engineering, multi-physics simulation or finite element analysis. (MS degree w/3yrs or PhD w/ 0years)
