Process specialist/process engineer in Nanofabrication to the Niels Bohr Institute
The clean room facility at the Niels Bohr Institute seeks an innovative candidate for a technical position as process specialist/process engineer in Nanofabrication for a fixed-term position.
The focus of the research and innovation is mainly driven by The Center for Quantum Devices (Q-Dev) www.qdev.dk a basic research center supported by the Danish National Research Foundation, involving coordinated activity in materials growth, processing, characterization, and nanoscale fabrication.
The candidate will join the department’s existing team of lab technicians and engineers. The tasks within the position are among others to develop processes in close collaboration with researchers and students allowing the fabrication of novel nanostructures for basic and applied research in electronics and other nanodevice applications. This will require the integration of multiple tools and methods, as well as the development of new nanofabrication methods.
The candidate is expected to contribute within the following areas:
- Supervise and train researchers, postdocs and students and other technical staff.
- Developing state of the art processes within areas such as Electron Beam Lithography, UV-Lithography, Physical Vapor Deposition, and Atomic Layer Deposition
- Manage technical collaborations with research teams for the development of the nanofabrication facility
- Maintain and trouble-shoot research equipment in collaboration with technical staff and run regular calibration procedures on the tools
- Share responsibilities for tools and processes with other members of the technical staff
We are looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic candidate with the following competencies and experience:
- Candidates should have a MSc or PhD degree in Electrical engineering or Physics or an equivalent relevant degree.
- An in-depth understanding of laboratory safety, and experience with hazardous tools and materials associated with nanofabrication facilities is required.
- Thorough knowledge about nanofabrication procedures with emphasis on electron beam lithography preferably using Elionix and Raith tools and skills necessary to design the entire fabrication process.
- Experience with device and materials characterization/imaging tools such as scanning probe and electron microscopy.
- Have knowledge about a broad spectrum of nanofabrication methods, semiconductor physics, electronics, physics, mechanical and electrical engineering.
- Have clean room experience.
Deadline for applications is 14 December 2020, 23.59 GMT +1.
The Niels Bohr Institute is part of the faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen, and the institute has 6 different addresses in Copenhagen
B15-21 Blegdamsvej: The original institute for physics has 4 teams of scientists besides the management, the administration and technical support. Particle physics, quantum physics, eScience, biophysics and theoretical cosmology.
Niels Bohr Building, Jagtvej 128: Researchers in Astrophysics from DARK, DAWN and the Condensed Matter Physics group.
Tagensvej 16: Here you will find the Physics of Ice Climate and Earth section.
The H. C. Ørsteds Institute at Universitetsparken 5: At this address you will find the nanophysics group and the Center for Quantum Devices.
Geological Museum, Øster Voldgade 5 - 7: At this address you will find the Astrophysics & Planetary Science group.
Building 24 and 25
2100 København Ø.
The scientific employees conduct research, and they also educate the students in astronomy, geophysics, nanoscience and basic physics. Moreover, the institute has a presentation of the research areas and the research results.
The scientists are organised in 10 teams/sections, and in connection with these teams the Niels Bohr Institute has 10 centres. A centre receives an external grant, and so it is possible to employ people for long periods of time.
The Niels Bohr Institute has established "the Niels Bohr International Academy". This academy receives a grant of DKK 10 millions from the Danish state. The purpose of the academy is to attract leading researchers for short - or long periods of time in order to promote and enhance research. "The Niels Bohr International Academy" has i.a. the "Summer Institute" with a strong programme.
In addition, the Niels Bohr Institute has 35 engineers and technicians to assist the scientists with experiments etc. They also maintain the technical infrastructure of the institute. Furthermore, the institute has 35 employeed within the areas of administration, communication, and library.
