We are looking for a

Physicist for New Tech team


Role Description

Nova is looking for a physicist in its Corporate CTO group with a broad acquaintance of multiple technologies, emphasizing experimental ultra-fast optics, the semiconductor process control and fabrication world, and the ability to lead disruptive new directions.

  • Nova provides insights into process control in the world’s most technologically advanced industry. We employ physics, math, algorithms, software and hardware expertise to redefine the limits of possible in semiconductors’ manufacturing.
  • We invite you to join our dreamers and winners! Brilliant high- aimers who see impossible as the starting point to exciting challenges, and work together in multidisciplinary global teams to find answers. 
  • We dive deep, into the nanometric and atomic levels, to extract unique insights and provide our customers and partners with crucial decision-making data. Each and every one of us helps redefine what people can achieve through technology. 

We simply do things differently. What about you?


Nova’s CTO group was established to create an influx of new technologies into our portfolio.

This capability expansion is critical for addressing the growing diversity of challenges and needs arising from the fast-developing semiconductor industry.

The new-tech physicist will use his understanding of the challenges and trends of the semiconductor ecosystem to conduct and lead concept and feasibility research (internally and with external partners) on emerging needs, identify new technologies, and help drive them in the organization.


What will make you succeed in the role?

  • Ph.D. (or M.Sc.) in Physics (or close engineering discipline).
  • Experimental ultra-fast optics experience (fs lasers, OPOs, pump-probe experiments)
  • Experience in the semiconductor industry and understanding the fab environment is an advantage.

The extra spice:

  • Ability to identify, comprehend, and analyze various technological paths based on diverse physical principles.
  • Hands-on capabilities: Design and construct complicated laboratory setups.
  • Disruptive Innovation thinking – daring to challenge the status quo. Strong problem-solving and troubleshooting capabilities and an ‘out-of-the-box’ approach.
  • Leadership skills - Ability to manage complex technological activities and projects (internally and with external vendors) in areas of large uncertainty in a multi-disciplinary global environment.
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills. Persuasive powers, ability to lead, motivate, and drive without authority (matrix).
