We are looking for a new team-member for the R&D department at SageGlass. We focus on fundamental understanding of electrochromic devices, next generation process/product and process improvement. Our R&D team is dynamic, multi-functional and multi-cultural. We work closely not only with our manufacturing colleagues, who are based right next door, but also our Saint-Gobain R&D colleagues all over the world.
As a Senior Coating Research Engineer you would be responsible for leading and supporting research on current and next generation coating process and product, as well further built a fundamental understanding of electrochromic devices. Electrochromic devices are complex, as their functioning relies on the optical and electrochemical properties of the layers, and the processing conditions used to create the stack. Understanding the relationship between the sputtering process, materials properties and the final product performance will be your key focus to guide next generation processes and products. Experience with thin film process development, especially magnetron sputtering and characterization is strongly desired. Knowledge of materials science and device physics, preferably in the semiconductor or battery field, is desired. You will be expected to shape and manage projects, design and execute experiments on pilot and industrialized coaters, coordinate with manufacturing team, and analyze samples and results.
You would freely collaborate with your global colleagues and openly share ideas and results. If you feel drawn towards a dynamic work place and helping to bring a very new technology into the world, then Sage R&D might be the right place for you!
Plan, define, and execute a research program on advanced electro chromic materials for SAGE glass including:
Experimental work at SAGE
Establish adequate reporting of project advances and documentation of results.
Strong collaboration within R&D team required.
Own process improvement and new process development project and lead project team to meet the goal
Follow relevant scientific work to field of Electro chrome materials
Follow up any potential solutions in respect of freedom to use as well as assuring that relevant IP protection is obtained by SAGE for newly identified solutions.
A strong scientific leadership is required to fill this position. Especially, the deepened understanding of magnetron sputtering, thin film property in combination with electronic understanding of SAGE devices may permit to improve current manufacturing process and prepare a next generation process or more efficient electrochromic glazing responding to the improved requirements on aesthetics and performance.
