Over de functie

Research Experimentalist at TNO in Delft
For over a decade, we have been supporting the leading manufacturers of semiconductor equipment around the world with our knowledge
of contamination control. Contamination control consists of the prevention, analysis and mitigation of contaminants or potential
defects at nanoscale. Our work focuses on molecular contaminants, submicron particles and its impact in complex systems. 
Experimental work is performed in our Van Leeuwenhoek Laboratory, which houses a wide range of facilities: in-house built 
ultraclean vacuum equipment, EUV exposure facilities, XPS surface analysis, SEM, equipment for nanoparticle detection and much more.

One of our main goals is to support our partners worldwide and enable the introduction of EUV lithography for high-volume 
manufacturing. The recently realised EUV Beam Line 2 (EBL2) forms one of the key systems for our research.

As an experimentalist you will work in a multi-disciplinary and competitive environment where you will perform experiments with
unique, state-of-the-art and customized vacuum systems. Based on your experiments TNO investigates and analyses the 
environmental (gasses and harsh radiation) effects on new developed coatings and materials. 
TNO works closely together with companies in the semiconductor industry such as ASML and Carl Zeiss. In our projects, you will be
one of our experimentalists, and work closely together with colleague experimentalists, surface analysts and scientists.

The Semiconductor Industry is a fast-moving market, which requires constant communication, flexibility and adaptability. 
This is reflected in our teams: fast-changing project goals demand a high degree of flexibility from team members. Good team-working
skills and the ability to operate well during demanding discussions are thus vital for achieving project goals. 
To be able to fulfil the role of experimentalist and operator it's important that you recognize yourself in this profile.


You have:
- a BSc, preferably experimental physics, surface-, plasma- or material physics.
- experience with working in clean rooms.
- experience and/or affinity in working with vacuum systems and/or plasma systems.

You are:
- accurate;
- flexible and resilient.
- You are willing to work outside office hours and in weekends.
- You have good interpersonal skills, which you can apply when interacting with clients.


We will boost your career through personal and technical growth. We’ll support you by offering a personal coach and the possibility to follow courses and training via our highly recommended
Yacht Academy. We’ll offer interesting benefits and a market conform salary. You’ll become member of the team of professionals who share your education, ambitions and your competencies. 
This will enable you to interact with your colleagues from Yacht in your own technology language! You’ll become a member of the yacht network, which stretches the high tech industry. 
You will be challenged by your peers. As a result you’ll be able to keep your knowledge and skills up-to-date!



Yacht is a contractor for highly educated professionals (BSc, MSc, or PhD) who’ll work on site and innovate together with our customers to find smart solutions. 
Being part of the world wide Randstad Group we have an extensive network of clients and professionals.
