ASML Thermal Engineer in Veldhoven, Netherlands


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 milliwatts, microkelvins and ultimately picometers of thermal expansion. All to get good optical performance in our lithography machines, that are used in semiconductor chip manufacturing.

Job Mission

Here practically all thermal engineering aspects are at play. Are you able to bridge the gap between detail and overview? Will you propose bright design solutions with impact on our next generation machines? Will you be able to balance a robust thermal design with other critical design parameters?

Job Description

As thermal engineer you help build high tech machines, and an average day may look like this:

You align with your team leader and colleagues from different disciplines on priorities and possible escalation support. You also discuss the next tough steps on the heat and flow analysis you have been building up for months. Later that day, after dressing up for the clean room you collect the latest measurement results from the test setup you programmed and designed to isolate the thermal effect under investigation. Don’t forget to prepare the presentation for the comparison between your theoretical analysis and the empirical results. You will need it to convince the stakeholders of your design-change proposal.

We have:

  • Some of the most high tech machines on earth to work with
  • A bustling and driven company culture
  • A team of some of the brightest minds to work with
  • Master degree in Engineering, (Applied) Physics, or similar
  • Nice if you have:
  • A specialization or PhD in thermal engineering
  • Solid understanding of System Control
  • Experience with Matlab, Ansys or similar simulation packages
  • Nice if you have:
  • Engineering/design experience
  • Experience in the semiconductor industry
  • Experience in Thermal Engineering
Personal skills
  • Keeping the overview, abstract thinking in conceptual models, have vision
  • Creativity, inventiveness
  • Drive and communication skills to work with a team
  • Being self-propelled
