Broad bio-MEMS knowledge with practical microfabrication experience

This diverse and successful Cambridge company seeks a hands-on scientist / engineer with an excellent knowledge of MEMS and practical microfabrication. This role will involve a good proportion of time in the client’s microfabrication cleanroom, where you will use your creative insight to develop innovative ideas into solutions.

This is a great opportunity to work with a multidisciplinary team of scientists and engineers on a range of innovative projects in areas such as biomedical fluidics, optics, sensors and electronics.

Your CV will demonstrate the following:

  • An MEng/MSc and PhD in engineering, physics, biology, electronics or similar from a highly-ranked university
  • Good experience developing microfluidic / MEMS devices, either in post graduate research or industry
  • Experience within life sciences or biomedical research/industry
  • Comprehensive MEMS process knowledge in photolithography, bonding, embossing, wet/dry techniques
  • Experience working with glass, silicon and polymers
  • Fluency with common microfabrication processes and protocols, ideally working with multiple materials
  • Understanding of fabrication process safety and clean room environments will be a big plus

This is a superb opportunity to join the Life Science-focussed team within a well-respected company in the Cambridgeshire area, facing leading edge challenges with the chance to progress quickly within the company.
