Clean Room and Laboratories Manager

Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering

Location:  Guildford
Salary:  £39,324 to £46,924 per annum
Post Type:  Full Time
Advert Placed:  Friday 17 February 2017
Closing Date:  Sunday 05 March 2017
Reference:  013317

The Advanced Technology Institute is recruiting a Clean Room and Laboratories Manager. This is a "hands-on" role requiring experience of design, processing and characterisation techniques relevant to microfabrication and the capacity to maintain, fault-find and repair the related equipment.

The postholder will have wide-ranging technical knowledge equipping them to support ATI laboratory users, the majority of whom are PhD students. The emphasis is on supporting the equipment and processes in the clean room. This is a research-scale clean room working on wafers up to 100mm and on a range of smaller samples to create a range of novel structures such as nanowire sensors, organic solar cells, and OLEDs. The clean room works closely with the adjacent centre for Graphene and related materials, in which the primary activity is the synthesis of novel carbon materials including graphene, nanotubes and diamond-like carbon coatings. Currently the role includes supporting a similar clean room at the National Physical Laboratory in Teddington.

The postholder will play a significant role in ensuring that all work follows safe working processes, and will be expected to be the primary contact for health and safety matters associated with the clean room and the related process gas installation.

Ideally the postholder will also bring experience of low-noise electrical measurement, microwave device characterisation, optical measurement, or development of software for control of instrumentation. Experience of working under a formal quality system is advantageous.

Informal enquires related to the post may be made to Dr Kostis Michelakis (k.michelakis@surrey.ac.uk) or Mr Tony Corless (t.corless@surrey.ac.uk).
