Division: Photon Science Institute
Hours per week: Full Time
Contract Duration: Starting as soon as possible for up to 3 years in the first instance
The Photon Science Institute (PSI) is a multi-disciplinary research centre in which physicists, chemists, engineers and material scientists use light to enable science as well as to develop new ways of generating, manipulating and detecting it. We are based in a state-of-the-art, purpose-built facility and benefit from a comprehensive suite of laser sources covering a wide range of wavelengths, energies and pulse durations.
The PSI has recently commissioned an advanced system for fabrication of quantum devices and advanced materials using deterministic single ion implantation. The ‘Platform for Nanoscale Advanced Materials Engineering’ (P-NAME) integrates state-of-the-art FIB and electron beam technologies and has recently been commercialised as the ‘Q-One’ by Ionoptika Ltd. It is now established within the PSI following significant investment by the EPSRC, Henry Royce Institute and the UoM itself.
We are seeking a highly skilled and ambitious individual to manage and deliver internationally-leading research on the P-NAME in collaboration with users at the UoM, from UK academia and industry, and with international partners. Reporting to the Technical Services Manager, you will be responsible for ensuring the effective operation of the facility.
You will have a degree (or a relevant equivalent qualification) in a physical sciences or engineering discipline and a postgraduate degree (or equivalent), and/or significant practical experience, in using an ion-beam technology for material doping, material modification or analysis. A track record of working on complex, multi-disciplinary research projects with multiple partners in academia or industry is required, as is experience of preparing technical reports. You will be self-motivated, flexible and able to manage their own workload, work to deadlines, and to solve operational problems through the use of initiative and innovation. Experience of running a user facility is desirable.
As an equal opportunities employer we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of age, sex, gender (or gender identity), ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status. All appointments are made on merit.
Please note that we are unable to respond to enquiries, accept CVs or applications from Recruitment Agencies.
