IBM summer internship - summer 2015

IBM GP8V Summer CO-OP Opportunity

The project involves developing micro Raman procedures for analysis of semiconductors and semiconductor manufacturing processes. Some of the methods that need to be developed are thin film analysis (Strained silicon, Silicon Dioxide, Silicon Nitride, BPSG, etc.) and mask defect analysis. Raman methods used to monitor polyimide and photoresist curing, and other semiconductor manufacturing processes need to be investigated. The applicant will also make a Raman spectral library of different chemicals and materials used at the Burlington manufacturing facility. The candidate should be pursuing a degree in chemistry, physics, or material science and will perform their investigation under the supervision of a chemist(s) at the Burlington Fab.
For some additional information on our company: we are presently part of IBM but may be transitioning to Global Foundries ownership during the course of the internship. Our facility is a semiconductor fabrication facility under the division of Microelectronics and produces chips found in many cell phones including silicon germanium and silicon-on-insulator chips. We are located in Burlington, Vermont. Some additional information on our division is included below.

If interested in the intern position, please send a resume or any questions to or

Charged Magazine Meeting 1/22

- Are you tired of all of the trivial junk out there on there internet?
- Do you wish that scientists, engineers and mathematicians explained what they studied in a way you actually WANTED to read?
- Do you love science, technology, engineering and math but are also a creative person who likes to think about music, entertainment, politics, fashion, literature or art?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions and want to be a part of a creative science writing community, read on....

CHARGED ( is an "anything goes" online magazine about how science and studying science (and math and engineering) affects people. We are currently looking for volunteer students, faculty, and (and non-GT people!) from ALL MAJORS AND DEPARTMENTS who want to contribute to writing, editing, promoting and maintaining this site.  Articles and posts can be about anything related to science, math and engineering as long as they are NOT BORING.  If you are ready to to contribute to an edgy, irreverent version of what makes all Techies tick, come to the organizational meeting 

JANUARY 22 at 11am in room 323 CULC
