A market leading developer of optical frequency conversion products selling into both, R&D, and OEM customers is now seeking a Research Engineer to join their Southampton facility.
This is a hands on role, working in an applied research and product development environment developing new devices which can then be produced commercially.
Working with funding grants received from bodies such as Innovate UK, DASA, and ESA, you will be responsible for reporting on and delivering milestones to stakeholders.
In addition you will assist with optical design and characterisation of the devices during development, and also work with packaging and processing partners.
You will also be involved with processes such as dicing, polishing, poling of wafers and chips. Training can be given in this area if required.
Ideally you will hold a minimum of a Bachelors’ Degree or Masters’ in a relevant Physics / Mechanical / Electrical / Electronics / Engineering discipline.
In addition to academic qualifications, the successful Research Engineer must have experience working with Non-Linear Materials, Photonic Devices, measurement and characterisation. Ideally you will have gained such experience within optical device R&D or manufacturing.
It is also expected that you will have worked with and be familiar with grant funding e.g. EPSRC, DASA, Innovate UK, ESA.
Further you should also be able to manipulate small/delicate optical components without damage (mm scale).
Candidates will ideally be eligible to live and work in the UK. Copies of Passport and Visa will be requested for verification.
