We are looking for a new and motivated staff member (technical engineer) to take over technical responsibilities in our research group as an instrument maker, maintaining the existing SPM instrumentation and laboratories and supporting the construction of new and unique SPM microscopes. Your responsibilities will be a combination of the following: (i) designing and machining ultra-high vacuum equipment for cryogenic environments, (ii) designing and constructing custom electronics, (iii) developing and supporting programming for hardware control, and (iv) maintaining and supporting our research laboratories. You will also be responsible for discussing and exchanging your ideas and developments in routine staff meetings and technical meetings with other group members.
You will also be responsible for maintaining certain aspects of our labs, independently. You should be enthusiastic to work with motivated students and international scientists on the technical aspects of the instrumentation and you are willing to take over laboratory-related administrative responsibilities.
The Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) department at Radboud Universitys Institute for Molecules and Materials (IMM) is an interdisciplinary research department currently comprising 15 scientists and students who utilize SPM techniques to study quantum phenomena on the atomic scale, ranging from fundamental physics to chemistry. We approach our scientific goals using and developing cutting-edge SPM instrumentation that operates in ultra-high vacuum, at cryogenic temperatures, with ultra-low mechanical and electronic noise levels, as well as in magnetic fields up to 9T. We closely collaborate with our in-house TechnoCentre, which includes a state-of-the-art machine shop and electronics shop.
You will work at the SPM department in close collaboration with the scientific and technical staff members, who will provide you with training on SPM-related knowledge. You will be embedded in our team of scientists and students from around the world in a highly inspiring, innovative and creative work environment. Moreover, you will have the opportunity to interact with technical staff members of the various research groups at the IMM, which is an interdisciplinary environment with strong synergy. You will have access to and collaborate with our excellent mechanical and electronic workshop on campus. The staff has long-standing experience with machining and designing research equipment.
Radboud University has seven faculties, which together cover the full range of academic disciplines. Its teaching and research staff hail from more than fifty countries. With several brand new buildings and state-of-the-art facilities, the leafy modern campus in Nijmegen provides an open and welcoming environment with a personal touch, encouraging the sharing of knowledge among academics, across disciplines, and within and between research institutes.
