The Division of Solid State Physics runs NanoLund´s core the world-class semiconductor nanofabrication facility Lund Nano Lab (LNL) that is part of Myfab -the national infrastructure for micro and nano fabrication. LNL turns over approx. 30 MSEK annually, consists of circa 600 sq. m of clean room with about 80 installed tools, including epitaxial systems, patterning and processing equipment and characterization instruments, and has over 150 users from academia and industry. LNL is currently planning for building a new cleanroom at Science Village Scandinavia to double its capacity. The LNL team includes 11 highly qualified scientists, engineers and technicians.

  • Demonstrated ability to troubleshoot gas and cooling systems to component level
  • Knowledge of basic vacuum principles and basic vacuum components, including vacuum pumps/gauges/valves
  • Proficiency in English including the ability to write technical documentation
  • Excellent communication skills

Further, these additional qualifications and experience would be beneficial:

  • Knowledge of Swedish regulations in regards to gas installations
  • Experience with compressed gases widely used in the semiconductor industry and knowledge of installation and maintenance of same
  • Extensive knowledge of gas and cooling related equipment - fittings/valves/regulators/MFCs etc.
  • Excellent understanding of the safety hazards associated with exchange/installation/storage/usage of process gases
  • Working knowledge of tubing/threads/fittings commonly used in gas and cooling equipment and familiarity with product ranges from most common suppliers
  • Hands-on experience with vacuum systems (high/ultra-high/plasma systems) – troubleshooting/installation/maintenance
  • Experience with chemical vapor deposition (CVD) equipment
  • Experience/training with Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus equipment
  • Ability to perform basic troubleshooting on electrical/electronic systems e.g. power supplies/control loops/communication systems
  • Ability to operate basic electrical/electronic test equipment

We expect you to be self-motivated and service-minded and have an ability to prioritize and handle multiple demands. In the selection of the successful candidate, much emphasis will be placed on interpersonal skills and the ability to work well within a team. We also expect that a non-Swedish speaking person within two years will have acquired sufficient knowledge of Swedish for the job.

With this recruitment, we hope to stimulate our environment with fresh influences and explicitly welcome applications from national and international companies, institutes or university laboratories.
