- Individual research responsibilities
- Define technical solutions to meet the process engineers’ specifications.
- Conduct flow, structural and thermal simulations of the deposition processes by means of commercial finite-element software.
- Realize CAD designs and write specification documents.
- Supervise the in-house or outsourced construction of structural parts of the deposition and characterization systems.
- Responsibilities as a team member
- Coordinate with the machinist, the electronic/electrical engineer, vacuum engineer, and other members of the HTS machines design team.
- Occasionally assist other groups (Fusion Engineering and/or Liquid Metals) if they have a peak in workload in the areas of mechanical design and modeling. Equivalently, work with mechanical engineers from other groups, if HTS has a peak in mechanical design and modeling activities.
- Bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering or related field.
- 3+ years of experience in machine design.
- 1+ years of experience in mechanical parts machining.
- 3+ years of experience with SolidWorks.
- 3+ years of experience with ANSYS, COMSOL or other finite element software.
- Written and oral communication skills. Ability to explain complicated concepts in a clear, concise manner.
- Ability and drive to engage with a team of scientists and engineers, understand complex descriptions and needs, and ability to translate them into technical requirements and “on time, on budget, on specs” designs.
- Organizational and problem-solving skills, attention to detail and will to learn.
- Ability to work independently as well as in a team.
- MSc degree in mechanical engineering or related field.
- Previous experience in the semiconductor and/or superconductor industry.
- Previous experience in designing physical and/or chemical deposition machines.
