Event: AVS Webinar: Negotiating Compensation: Tips to Build a Better Compensation Package
Location:  Virtual/Online
Contact:  Angela Klink
Web: https://avs.swoogo.com/webinar_plc0321


Career Consultant: Lisa Balbes, Balbes Consultants LLC
Panelists:
Andy Antonelli, Senior Director & Fellow, Onto Innovation, Inc.
Susan Sinnott, Department Head, Materials Science and Engineering, The Pennsylvania State University
Lee Howell, Vice-President – Process Equipment Division, Kurt J. Lesker Company

Receiving a job offer is a wonderful feeling, and the highlight of a long and often painful job search process. You may be tempted to accept the offer as is and be done with it. But no matter how generous the offer, there will always be something to discuss and negotiate.

This workshop will help identify what you can negotiate (much more than just salary), and how to conduct a positive, professional negotiation that leaves both parties happy. It will also provide tips on related topics such as when you are asked to provide your requirements first, and how to approach renegotiations once already in a position.

The session will begin with a presentation from a professional career consultant, followed by panelists who will talk about their own experiences and advice from both sides of the negotiating table.

Beta-Gallium Oxide is an emerging ultra-wide band gap semiconductor with a predicted critical breakdown field much higher than the commercial wide band gap semiconductors such as Gallium Nitride and Silicon Carbide. The key attractive feature is the availability of single crystal large area bulk substrates. This webinar will begin with the motivation for pursuing research on ultra-wide band gap semiconductors for applications in power electronics and high frequency electronics. State-of-the-art progress in bulk crystal growth, epitaxy and ion implantation will be reviewed. Strategies to maximize breakdown voltage in lateral Gallium Oxide MOSFETs, vertical diodes and transistors will be discussed. The main theme of the webinar will be to highlight and discuss the interrelationship between material properties, material processing and device performance. The future outlook for Gallium Oxide in achieving its theoretical potential, as well as the key challenges & limitations, will also be discussed.
