A specialist in fiber optic components is sought to support the development of micro-optical devices to support research projects in neurophotonics, optogenetics, imaging and neurosurgery. The position is full time and is not related to a masters or doctoral project. The candidate will be based primarily at facilities of photonics Pavilion (on the campus of Laval University), but sometimes will travel to the center of Neurophotonics CRIUSMQ and Douglas Institute at McGill. His or her task will include manufacture of microdevices based on optical fibers, use a fusion splicer, use a CO2 laser or a polishing system for cutting, co-ordinate thin film deposition with staff COPL and finally put everything together into useful devices for research. The candidate has:
- optical engineering or technical training (physical, electrical or equivalent)
- practical expertise in manufacturing fiber optic devices (coupler, connector, splices) and optical characterization
- an alert mind to improve device production protocols and propose solutions
- the ability to produce large quantities of micro-optical devices to meet the needs of different research groups involved.
- the ability to deliver within deadlines as demonstrated by past experience
- the ability to be a team player
- interest in the biomedical application of optical technologies.
- good writing skills in English an asset
The salary will be dictated by the training and proficiency. Send your CV and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org and Daniel.Cote@crulrg.ulaval.ca.
