UK: Research Scientist – Nanotechnology

Consultant Name : Alex Hannigan-Train
Job : Research Scientist – Nanotechnology
Job Ref : 10705
Location : Newhaven East Sussex
Salary : 25000-45000
Description :
A new role for a Physical Scientist (Physicist or Materials Scientist or similar) with a background in developing nanomaterials (ideally carbon nanotubes) using CVD/PVD growth techniques is required to join an award-winning Nanotechnology Company who are pushing the bounds of science to developing novel nano-materials for exciting semiconductor, membrane and aerospace applications.As a Research Scientist you would be a member if a talented R&D team working on the development of the next generation of Nanomaterials for some very exciting applications. You will use you extensive knowledge of nanomaterial growth and catalysis techniques coupled with your understanding of thin film metrology and nanostructure analytical techniques to further the known knowledge to better improve existing and develop new products.To be considered for the vacancy of Research Scientist you need:

  • A Masters Degree(MRes/MSci, MPhys/MPhil) in Physics/Materials Science/ Electronic Engineering or similar

Highly Desirable:

  • A PhD, EngD Or DPhil (Doctorate) in Physics/Materials Science/ Electronic Engineering or similar

Prior experience of developing CNT/Graphene process development and materials characterisation including:

  • experience in CNT technology; growth, morphology and structure, previous experience on horizontal and vertical aligned SWCNT is essential.
  • PVD deposition and chemical formulation of catalysts used in CNT growth
  • Solution and vapour phase catalysts preparation and deposition
  • Thin film material structure analysis
  • Optical characterization techniques such as Raman, absorption and reflection spectroscopy etc…
  • Solid understanding of growth mechanisms and reaction drivers
  • Knowledge of general vacuum technology i.e. pumps, power supplies etc
