Applications are invited for the position of Facility Engineer and Operator.
The post is fixed-term for 2 years with a possible extension subject to funding.
In Q2/2020, the National Thin Film Vacuum Deposition Facility will go online in the Physics Department of the University of Oxford, serving the UK community with a world-class research tool to investigate the next generation of advanced functional materials and devices, from solar cells to light emitting diodes and transistors.
The successful candidate will support the commissioning of the facility and subsequently be responsible for the running of the facility and day-to-day operation of the cluster for researchers as well as potentially supervising a team of further technicians operating and maintaining the facility.
Applicants should possess a minimum of a Bachelor in Engineering or equivalent experience, and ideally a strong background in operating large scale vacuum deposition tools.
Candidates are expected to work on their own initiative and resolve issues independently; to have experience working with hazardous chemicals, including developing risk assessments and COSHH sheets; to show technical experience of maintaining and working on large pieces of equipment in a similar complexity to the mentioned vacuum deposition facility.
Please direct enquiries about the role to Moritz Riede (firstname.lastname@example.org).
You will be required to upload a supporting statement, CV and details of two referees as part of your online application.
