Job offer: Engineer Position in Near field Microscopy and Instrumentation

In the frame of a H2020 (end-2017 to end-2020) large project gathering 8 European partners, we have a research engineer position having an expertise on near field microscopy (AFM, STM, …) based techniques and instrumentations.

The job consists to contribute to the development of a new Scanning Microwave Microscope (SMM= AFM + Microwave instrumentations) and associated control systems (Nanonis controller, vector network analyzer…). The recruited person will also participate to campaign of SMM imaging of thin film advanced materials and nanodevices for photovoltaic applications

This activity is located in the nanocharacterization center (1100m2 of new clean room spaces) of the IEMN (jointed CNRS-University of Lille Academic Institute).

• The duration of this position is of 18 Months extensible to 24 Months.
• This job will be available on beginning of December 2017.
