NTNU NanoLab in Trondheim has two open permanent positions for senior engineers within nanocharacterisation and nanostructuring.
NTNU is the foremost technical university in Norway and located in Trondheim. NTNU NanoLab is a cleanroom of class 100-10.000 (ISO 5-7) equipped for nanostructuring and -characterisation by physical, chemical and biological methods. The cleanroom is part of Nano@NTNU, which is a strategic, cross disciplinary initiative at NTNU to promote and coordinate research in nanoscience, nanotechnology and functional materials.
The engineers of NTNU NanoLab are competence holders for the cleanroom and its instrumentation. We have an international, exciting and positive work environment with good opportunities for both professional and personal development. We are currently expanding our technical staff of seven people with new positions. Therefore, we are looking for one senior engineer to take responsibility for our process equipment for nanostructuring by physical methods, and one senior engineer to contribute in our nanocharacterisation area, as well as to an operator service covering both nanocharacterisation and micro- or nanofabrication techniques.
Our new thin film/dry etch engineer will mainly work in the nanostructuring area of the cleanroom with dry etching and thin film equipment, such as e-beam evaporators, sputters, CAIBE, ICP-RIE and PECVD. This includes troubleshooting, repair and maintenance of existing equipment, as well as procurement and installation of new equipment. Giving instrument training and support to users of the cleanroom will also be an important part of the position. In addition, the position will include administrative tasks and logistics, such as gas handling and orders. Furthermore, the new position will contribute to an operator service for nanostructuring and -characterisation, currently developed at NTNU NanoLab. Keywords: automation, mechatronics, mechanics, electronics, troubleshooting, maintenance, repair.
Our new characterisation engineer will mainly work in the nanocharacterisation area of the cleanroom, which is equipped with several SEMs, two dual-beam FIB instruments, an AFM, optical and stylus profilers, a Micro Raman instrument and several smaller characterisation instruments. The position will contribute to the operator service for nanostructuring and -characterisation currently under development at NTNU NanoLab. The position includes troubleshooting, repair and maintenance of existing characterisation equipment, as well as procurement and installation of new equipment. Our new engineer will give instrument training and user support in addition to administrative tasks and coordination of course activities in the cleanroom. Keywords: SEM, service, maintenance, microfabrication, nanofabrication, operator.
Norway, like other Scandinavian countries, has generous rules for both maternity and paternity leave. Professional daycare for children is easily available. Furthermore, Trondheim offers great opportunities for education(including international schools) and possibilities to enjoy nature, culture and family life http://trondheim.com/. Having a population of 180 000, Trondheim is a small city by international standards, and thus has low crimerates, little pollution, and easy access to a beautiful countryside.
