ASML manufactures complex lithography machines and is a technology leader and supplier to all leading chip manufacturers around the world. The steady progress of the worldís technological evolution through faster, smarter, more energy-efficient yet more affordable chips is to a large extent the result of technological breakthroughs at ASML. The people who work at ASML include some of the most creative minds in physics, mathematics, mechatronics, optics, mechanical engineering, software engineering, and computer science. ASML spends more than 1 billion Euros per year on R&D, so our people have the freedom and the resources to push boundaries of known technology.

The Research department at ASML is always looking for PhD students with outstanding curricular performances resulting in an honor or cum laude degree. We are looking for recently graduated PhD student in any technical direction (e.g. Physics, mechatronics, mathematics, computer science, optics, chemistry). It is important that you have been actively involved in extracurricular activities, thereby demonstrating significant leadership and networking skills. Your mission is to investigate new and breakthrough technologies that enable further development of the semiconductor industry, in particular the photo-lithography. You deliver proof of concepts and results from feasibility studies that can be implemented in future products.
