Material Science R&D Engineer
As R&D Engineer you will develop sol-gel and associated coating processes allowing the elaboration of mesoporous thin films with an extended range of porosity and chemical composition. You will also work at the integration of the resulting films into functional systems dedicated to applications in the field of sensing, photovoltaics or for coatings with unique properties. This will include the following responsibilities:
- Design and fabrication of functionalized inorganic/hybrid mesoporous thin films
- Integrate mesoporous devices in advanced systems and evaluate resulting performances
- Develop IP portfolio
- Manage project and project team
- Contribute to the acquisition of industrial and research projects
You are a motivated Engineer with PhD degree in Chemistry, Material Sciences or equivalent. You have excellent problem solving abilities and enjoy experimental research (design and lab work). You have 3-5 years of R&D experience in applied research preferably in an industrial environment. You have a strong expertise in surface science, sol-gel chemistry and coating process, including analytical technique for films/materials characterization. You have a proven experience in developing technological platforms and nanomaterials based innovative solutions. Technical skills in (optical) sensing is an advantage. You are curious, creative and possess technical leadership skills that help you to generate new ideas and concept. You are keen to work in an interdisciplinary team and you have excellent support and communication skills allowing you to interact with colleagues, industrial customers as well as university partners.
