The Intel Research and Development group is reinventing the digital world every day. In everything we do, we are looking for those breakthrough product experiences. And then we look for ways to do it smaller, faster, and better. Our discoveries make new things possible in PCs, TVs, cars, handhelds—virtually anywhere computing capabilities are in demand. This is where you can make a difference.
From creating a single-chip cloud computer and exploring disruptive technologies to looking for ways to make systems architecture more energy- and packaging-efficient, our R&D professionals are always being challenged. As part of the Intel R&D team, you'll explore how our customers interact with technology, what they love about it, and how to make off-the-wall ideas usable reality. Whether you're applying new materials, emerging technologies, or customer insights, your innovations will be what transforms the computing capabilities of tomorrow.
Intel Labs has created an experimental SCC containing the most Intel® architecture cores ever integrated on a silicon CPU chip—48 cores!
Intel has collaborated with industry, academic, and government partners to develop a silicon-based avalanche photodetector (APD).
Intel researchers are advancing a multi-chip "system in package" (SIP) technique to address demand for thinner, lighter, and feature-packed mobile devices.
Successful research and design engineers at Intel typically have bachelor's or advanced degrees in chemical, computer science, electrical, or mechanical engineering, chemistry, material science, or physics.
We look for individuals with strong software and CAD development skills that have demonstrated innovation in the fields of optics, lithography, device physics, novel materials, plasma physics, thermomechanics, computational geometry, layout optimization, process technology, and device modeling.
We also value experience with multithreading and parallel processing, design synthesis, high-level functional models, and product validation and test, as well as excellent knowledge of semiconductor process technology and wafer fabrication, devising and conducting experiments, and defining road maps for new technology processes.

"I love solving puzzles and proving those who say 'that can’t be done' are wrong. At Intel, the problems I work on don't have clear solutions. So it's easy for me to get up each morning and come to work because I'm motivated to find a solution and demonstrate to others that 'this can be done." ― Shawna, Process Technology Development Engineer, Chandler, AZ, USA
"Being around the brightest people making mind-boggling products, and with everyone so friendly in and outside of work, is just amazing. My group goes to lunch together frequently, and a strong college grad group meets for happy hours, camping, intramural sports—you name it! A truly unique culture that makes Intel a great place to work." ― Greg, Operations Research Engineer, Chandler, AZ, USA
