Ultrasound/Acoustic Metrology Researcher

Are you looking for a new challenge as Ultrasound/ Acoustic Metrology Researcher at a fast growing and innovative high-tech company? Then this job could be of interest for you!

Job information

As an Ultrasound/Acoustic Metrology Researcher, you will be involved in the development of metrology concepts based on ultrasound/acoustic imaging and detection. By theoretical analysis and simulations (including wave propagation simulations in FEM and MATLAB), design and building working prototypes, you show how the Proof-of-Concept and address technical challenges of our customers.

You will also be involved in the research and development (R&D) of the next generation ultrasound imaging systems for metrology applications. Together with your colleagues you will analyze and predict customer needs, translate these to system requirements, create conceptual designs and build experimental setups to demonstrate key aspects, and realize and experimentally characterize prototypes. For this you will apply your experience and knowledge about the physics of wave interaction with matter, both in transmission and reflection, development of acoustic transducers, matching layers and acoustic clamps, signal processing and, if required, dedicated electronics design. You are also able to translate the customer needs in acoustic metrology.

Moreover, you perform research into high-resolution ultrasound/acoustic imaging devices and sensors and research in building experimental set-ups for proof-of-concept of acoustic metrology for the envisioned applications.

Job requirements

The Ultrasound/Acoustic Metrology Researcher we seek ideally has at least 5 years of experience as an ultrasound expert in a high-tech environment. Experience in the field of semiconductor equipment is a plus. Furthermore, you need to recognize yourself in the profile as described below.

You have:

  • A PhD in Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics, Physics or Electrical Engineering with an emphasis on acoustic/ultrasound simulations and experiments
  • A wide experience in acoustic metrology and imaging
  • Experience in building practical experimental set-ups based on acoustic metrology and imaging is highly preferred
  • An understanding of the semiconductor industry and the challenges this industry faces in the area of nano-metrology and nano-manufacturing
  • Experience in measurement analysis
  • Experience working in a multi-disciplinary engineering environment, with suppliers and codevelopers, to ensure timely realization of competitive, high precision, complex components and assemblies
  • Be able to quickly acquire technical knowledge from documentation and on-the-job training, and be capable of thoroughly investigating technical issues (analytically and hands-on in a lab or cleanroom environment)


You will be involved in designing, development, integration, marketing and service these advanced metrology machines, which enable our customers - the world’s leading chipmakers – to increase the production yields, and thus, functionality of their microchips, which in turn leads to smaller, more powerful consumer electronics. We aim to develop leading edge metrology systems, to be installed at the customer site, within specifications, on time, with quality exceeding the customer’s expectations.


Your personal development is our priority. At ENTER you will have the chance to develop yourself and to make your ambitions come true via a variety of projects at different customers.

Besides this we offer you:

  • Courses and trainings to grow your career via our ENTER Professional Development Program, including a personal coach.
  • Community and network with your technology professional colleagues
  • Events and master classes with interesting speakers and appealing companies ranging from start-ups to the industry leaders
  • Intensive support and guidance for international candidates (including Dutch lessons, tax-return and accommodation assistance)

Moreover, you can count on excellent job conditions, adapted to your personal situation and work-life balance.
