Materials Development Group: Materials Engineer (MSE2)
Responsible for the design, fabrication and operation of gas-phase
CVD reactors for the synthesis of new nanomaterials.
The Materials Engineer will be responsible for development of new
reactor systems, including scale-up, and will be responsible for
development of new materials produced with these reactors.
In support of material development, the Materials Engineer will also
determine appropriate characterization methods for these materials,
conduct testing, and analyze results of this testing to determine
whether the synthetic objectives were met.
Expected to work closely with other members of the Materials
Development group to meet these objectives and to support the
Device Development group by developing new materials for
Ph.D. degree in Chemical Engineering, Materials Science, Mechanical
Engineering or similar appropriate technical discipline.
Must have 4 years of post-graduate industrial experience as an
engineer in a project-oriented environment.
Must have solid knowledge of gas handling systems, flow control,
vacuum systems, and related mechanical design.
Preference will be given to candidates with experience in any of the
following areas: design of CVD or PECVD reactors, gas-phase
synthesis of materials (thin films or particles), or aerosol technology.
Experience with LabView is highly desirable.
Experience with standard CAD software (AutoCAD, etc.) is preferred.
Some travel may be required.
Requires excellent communication skills, written and verbal.
Must demonstrate initiative, be detail-oriented and have strong follow-
Must display positive attitude and ability to quickly react to changing
business demands, aggressive deadlines, and demanding hours in a
