University of Glasgow

Location: Glasgow
Salary: £38,474 to £63,059
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 28th March 2023
Expires: 11th April 2023

Research Associate/ Fellow - Design, Test, Fabrication and Systems Engineer(s) (multiple areas) (Grade 7/8, £38,474 - £43,155, £47,074 – £54,421)

Technical Project Manager (Grade 8, £47,074 – £54,421)

IA Hub Programme and Development Manager (Grade 9, £56,048 - £63,059)

New University of Glasgow (UofG) roles for Pilot Accelerator for National Institute for Quantum Integration.  

The Pilot Accelerator for a National Institute for Quantum Integration is one of six ambitious new projects linked to the University of Glasgow that are set to receive funding through a major new investment from the UK Government Department for Science, Innovation and Technology. 

A total of 11 projects in and around the city will receive support from the Glasgow City Region’s share of £100 million Levelling Up money, to further accelerate the Region’s booming innovation economy. 

Huge growth is predicted for the photonics and quantum markets in coming decades. The Pilot Accelerator for a National Institute for Quantum Integration project aims to build an engineering capability, led by the University of Glasgow’s James Watt Nanofabrication Centre (JWNC), that will aid the growth of the Scottish photonics and quantum cluster. It will appoint design, test, fabrication and systems engineers to build on the embedded expertise and skill of the JWNC and senior University of Glasgow researchers, enabling industry to deliver innovative products that open up new markets.  

Ultimately, it will act as a model for the University’s proposed National Institute of Quantum Integration (NiQi). NiQi would act as a front door for global industry to engage with UK quantum expertise and position Glasgow as a world leader in quantum technology, serving as a beacon for further inward investment into the region.  

For this new centre, the James Watt School of Engineering is looking to recruit Design, Test, Fabrication and Systems Engineers, a Technical Project Manager and a Programme and Development Manager.  This team will work alongside senior UofG academics and use the world class facilities of the University’s JWNC to deliver industry defined nanofabrication component and component integration projects in emerging quantum technology applications.  These proof of concept prototypes will de-risk onward commercial investments and shorten time to market.  

For the Design, Test, Fabrication and Systems Engineer roles, academic research or industrial experience is required in either design, systems engineering, fabrication, or test and characterisation, in one or more areas such as: semiconductor lasers; photonic integrated circuits; superconducting quantum devices/circuits; MEMS; wafer bonding; advanced packaging;  heterogeneous integration; or other relevant area(s) within the field of nanofabrication.  

Informal enquiries about the roles are welcomed, and should be addressed to Professor John Marsh (John.Marsh@glasgow.ac.uk
