Salary: £34,304 to £40,927 p.a.
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 6th January 2022

Are you interested in working as a highly trained micro-fabrication specialist? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s largest University Cleanrooms? Are you interested in working with academics, SMEs and industry?

We seek an Experimental Officer, specialising in cleanroom fabrication techniques, to join our highly skilled team in the new, £10M Leeds Nanotechnology Cleanroom (www.cleanroom.leeds.ac.uk). The position is a 3-year fixed term in the first instance, but likely to be extended, subject to funding.

Your primary responsibilities will be to support £2.6M of EPSRC-funded dry-etch and deposition systems, including a reactive ion etcher (RIE), inductively-coupled (ICP-) RIE, deep-silicon ICP-RIE, and a high-density plasm-enhanced chemical vapour deposition system. Your role will include developing standard operating procedures and offering user training, alongside operating and maintaining the equipment. You will also be responsible for promoting their capabilities (in the wider context of the cleanroom) at conferences and trade fairs, engaging with external academics and SMEs, and for developing new collaborations and opportunities.

You will join an active research facility that currently supports >30 internal users, 12 SMEs and 25 external academics, based both in the UK and internationally. As part of your personal development, you will have the opportunity to be trained on £15M of other cleanroom equipment and associated processes, to allow you to develop and support whole process-chains.

You will have at least a degree in physics, engineering or a related discipline, and either a PhD or industrial experience, preferably with skills in cleanroom processing / microfabrication.  You must have excellent interpersonal skills, a proactive approach to problem solving, and be comfortable interacting day-to-day with academics, students and commercial partners of all career stages.
