The Micro2 Laboratory (micro2.estmtl.ca), a research group working of the creation of advanced microsystems that will enable tomorrow’s breakthrough technologies that brings together researchers from École de technologie supérieure and Université du Québec à Montréal, is looking to hire a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to contribute to the advancement of an innovative microfabrication platform. This project is supported by AEPONYX (AEPONYX.com), a dynamic start-up aiming at integrating silicon photonics with microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) to enable the next generation of access and datacenter networks.
The applicant will be responsible to design, simulate, fabricate, and test novel integrated optical devices to improve and increase the functionality of the microfabrication platform. The applicant will prepare the computer aided design (CAD) files required to implement the devices and will participate in their fabrication. The fabrication will be done in cleanrooms available at academic institutions in the Montréal area. In addition, the applicant is expected to contribute to the supervision and training of the graduate and undergraduate students involved in the project and to the management of the laboratory equipment. Since this is a multidisciplinary research effort, the applicant will have to work in collaboration with experts in MEMS, packaging and optical communication, among others. The applicant will have to accurately document her/his contributions to the project to facilitate technological transfer to the research team and industrial collaborator. The applicant will have to prepare verbal and written communications to present his/her results to the industrial collaborator and the scientific community.
Required qualifications:
• PhD in Engineering Physics, Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics or Physics obtained within the last 5 years,
• Experience in the design and characterisation of integrated optical devices,
• Be able to write and speak in English effectively,
• Have strong organization and management skills,
• Self-motivated and independent,
• Willing to work collaboratively.
Desired qualifications:
• Experience in microfabrication,
• Knowledge of the Lumerical software suite,
• Understanding of optical telecommunication standards and testing,
• Ability to communicate in French.
The salary offered is $45,000 per year. The employment contract is for one year and is renewable for up to three years depending on project funding. The usual work load is 35 hours/week but might vary according to the milestones defined in the project. The position is available immediately and will remain open until January 2018 or a suitable candidate is hired. The position is based at École de technologie supérieure in Montréal, QC, Canada but the selected applicant will have to travel in the Montreal area to attend meetings and access research facilities. The work environment is bilingual (English & French). Technical discussions are often carried in English but some administrative requirements might have to be fulfilled in French. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority.
