Electronic / Electrical Engineer -- Thin Film Deposition

Start on/after: June 15, 2022
For full consideration, apply by: May 31, 2022
If a potentially good or excellent match, we will contact you within 1 week from applying.

Renaissance Fusion is the first Magnetic Confinement Fusion company in the EU. We are building the first net-energy producing stellarator by combining proprietary innovations in modular design, the manufacturing of next-generation High-Temperature Superconducting (HTS) magnets, and liquid walls. We are forming a team of the brightest, most driven scientists and engineers to realize and commercialize our non-fusion HTS magnets within 2 years, and fusion magnets and integrated fusion solutions within 10 years.

Specifically, we are looking for a talented, energetic and creative electric and electronic engineer to design and lead the construction of electric and electronic systems for a Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) machine and a Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) machine. These systems will be used for the deposition of HTS materials.

Our team is young, agile, international and based in the exciting city of Grenoble, by the French Alps.

Responsibilities:

  • Individual research responsibilities
    • Define technical solution to meet process engineer’s specifications.
    • Design, construct and test the electronics of the deposition machines and, at a later stage, the diagnostics for film characterization and magnet testing.
    • Program industrial PLCs & HMIs.
    • Select control automation sensors, devices and components. Define and select electronic systems and instrumentation integration.
    • Wire instruments (power supplies, vacuum pumps etc.).
    • Develop new algorithms to control the machines’ control systems.
    • System troubleshooting.
  • Responsibilities as a team member
    • Integrate the electronic part with all other parts of the film-deposition machines.
    • Maintain the electric and electronic hardware of the deposition and characterization machines.
    • Work closely with the rest of the HTS team, especially the software engineer.
    • Write and update high-quality documentation of electric and electronic systems and components.

Qualifications -essential:

  • Bachelor’s and/or Master’s degree in electric, electronic or mechatronic engineering, or a related field.
  • 3+ years of professional experience in engineering control and electronic complex systems.
  • Experience with Labview, Python and Matlab Simulink.
  • Experience in programming PLCs, HMIS, GPIB ports, serial communication, Arduino boards etc.
  • Written and oral communication skills. Ability to explain complicated concepts in a clear, concise manner.
  • Ability and drive to engage with a team of scientists and engineers, understand complex descriptions and needs, and ability to translate them into technical requirements and “on time, on budget, on specs” designs.
  • Organizational and problem-solving skills, attention to detail and willingness to learn.
  • Ability to work independently as well as in a team.

Qualifications -desirable:

  • Previous experience in the semiconductor and/or superconductor industry.
  • Previous experience in designing physical and/or chemical deposition machines.

Application process:

  • Go to our Contact us form and
    1. Write at least 2-3 lines on why you are a good match for this position. Example: “I have all 8 essential qualifications listed in the job description (please explain). In fact, I do exceed some of them (please explain). In addition, I have 1 out of the 2 desirable qualifications (please explain) and I look forward to joining your team and working on this topic because…”
    2. Upload your cv AND 2-3 samples of your work (papers, presentations, reports, theses, drawings, etc.). After each upload, a new button will appear for further uploads. In case of difficulties, upload everything as a single zip file.
