Description: My clients in Cambridgeshire are looking for a Device Physics Scientist - Sensor Systems.

This role is commutable from Saffron Walden, Royston, Cambridge, Bedford, St. Neots, Huntingdon.

The successful candidate will:
- develop organic electronics devices (OEDs) and integrated systems.
- improve the performance of component technologies such as light emitting diodes and photo diodes.
- develop fabrication processes with compatibility for integration.
- develop such components to be incorporated into prototype devices in order to effectively address a range of applications.
- generate ideas and further widen the application space of company technologies in the scope of sensor systems.

- Based on fundamental understanding of the mechanisms that govern device operation develop new device architectures and fabrication processes that exhibit enhanced device performance.
- Optimise device architectures to allow for successful integration of several printed components into functional prototypes being developed within the team.
- Design and execute experiments to correlate material and process parameters to device performances.
- Analyse results in order to understand the processes that limit performance with a focus on developing device structures to realise further enhancements.
- Contribute to the design and execution of prototypes comprising printed electronic components to demonstrate the available technology and its potential.
- Propose, implement and execute joint developments with other companies and academic institutions to further the development of printed electronics applications with the view of enhancing the company offering in the printed electronics area.
- Actively participate in activities to expand the company Intellectual Property (IP) portfolio by creating know how and patents.
- Help to improve the company profile in the printed electronics area as well as increasing knowledge in this field by participating in conferences, reading and, if appropriate, writing relevant literature.
- Develop and maintain an understanding of application and/or market needs and develop solutions that can address these needs.
- Generate and develop proposals for new or enhanced applications and synergistic technologies to enhance the commercial attractiveness of company technologies.

- Characterise devices using relevant test equipment and develop novel techniques and systems to improve understanding and capabilities.
- Characterise new materials in devices produced by company Chemists, external partners and collaborators using a wide range of standard and novel techniques.
- Fabricate devices in cleanroom and laboratory facilities following standard procedures and working practices. Devise new procedures where appropriate.
- Analyse results and draw conclusions discussing them with line manager, writing reports to maintain up to date findings.
- Keep careful records of all laboratory work to ensure control and traceability.
- Pro-actively compile accurate and detailed reports of experimental results and propose directions for further development.
- Identify new approaches and architectures for novel organic electronic devices that will expand the company IP portfolio and potentially contribute to future revenues. Generate and keep records of new Intellectual Property.
- Contribute to the building up of the working knowledge of competitors and application needs in order to direct technical developments.
- Attend regular group meetings and be prepared to discuss results and contribute fully to discussions.
- Liaise with other technical teams within the company to maintain awareness of developments and contribute as appropriate.
- Develop and maintain equipment for characterisation of the properties of OEDs.
- Maintain an awareness of the requirements for commercialisation of new technologies, including the complexity of processing and issues involved in production.
- Communicate effectively across the scientific disciplines within the company to promote internal discussion and move the technology forward.
- Prepare and deliver presentations when required.

- PhD or equivalent relevant experience in Physics, Physical Chemistry, Engineering, Materials Science or related subject.
- Demonstrable and solid knowledge of semiconductor physics is essential.

- Track record of technical expertise in semiconductor physics.
- Experience of the deposition and characterisation of thin films via surface analysis and electrical characterisation techniques and correlating film properties to device performance.
- Experience of working with hybrid systems comprising silicon components and/or printed materials such as conductors and insulators. Particular skills of relevance are: device fabrication and testing, interconnection fabrication and integrity testing, working on flexible/plastic substrates.
