PhD graduate with experience in nano- and micro-sized sensor fabrication, characterization and testing

AmiNIC is a Danish SME founded in 2015 on the invention of a methodology for measuring freshness and expiration dates of meat and fish. We are developing this into a handheld user-friendly sensor which, within seconds, can predicts the precise and correct shelf-life.

 AmiNIC is a research-intensive SME that collaborates closely with universities and RTOs on the development and validation of the method, but is now looking for competencies that can bring major advances to the innovation level of this technology.

For this we will need a highly-skilled candidate that, from prior knowledge and knowledge and competencies gained through the training activities included in the position, can significantly improve our Key Enabling Technology: a nanomechanical semiconductor sensing unit and post-validate the feasibility of the sensor as a whole and together with Danish Universities, benchmark this method for freshness and expiration date prediction against current methods; human sensory analysis.

Important Information:

The position is based on an EU-funding scheme (Innovation Associate Pilot) with the following requirements:

  • The candidate holds a PhD
  • The candidate comes from outside of Denmark or has lived in Denmark for no longer than 1 year (moving expenses, from current residence to the workplace in Sønderborg, Denmark, are payed by the employer).
  • The position is limited to 1 year: from the 1st of September 2020 till the 31st of August 2021, but may be prolonged in case the opportunity arises.

Responsibilities and tasks:

  • Tailoring the surface-composition and dimensions of the nano-mechanical sensing unit to fit our specific purpose; lab-investigations of suitable surface properties; computer simulations of the mechanical properties based on material composition and dimensions; fabrication and subsequent performance- and reliability tests.
  • Together with the development team; incorporate the sensing unit into the handheld device and test the performance of the device as a whole
  • Together with University of Aarhus and Copenhagen, benchmark the technology and collect, with the new and significantly improved device, several datasets for real meat and fish samples to be stores in database as prediction curves.
  • Attend 4 short trainings-sessions: a) Industrial innovation management training (Brussel, Belgium), b) Introduction in use of analysis and process equipment (place of employment, c) Training in design of micro- and nanomechanical semiconductor sensing units (Itzehoe, Germany), d) Training in use of cleanroom and fabrication of semiconductor devices (place of employment) (in total app. 5 weeks of traveling)

We are looking for a candidate who:

  • Has profound knowledge in material- and surface science and experience with semiconductor sensors
  • Is skilled in laboratory work, design of experiments and data processing
  • Is able to collaborate closely with the development and external partners with distinctly different areas of expertise
  • Is a team player and has good communicative skills
  • Is self-driven and has a creative approach to development
  • Sees the potential of the innovation and enjoy the process of iterative development of a game-changing, close to market product.

What we bring to the table:

The right candidate will, in this position acquire increased knowledge within surface and material science and characterization methods thereof; knowledge and skills within nano- and micro design and fabrication; simulation and reliability test of nano sensors; and methods for calibration of these as an integrated part of a sensor-device.

In addition, the candidate will obtain knowledge and skills within benchmarking of innovative and disruptive technological solutions. The candidate will be part of AmiNIC’s development team and work closely with, and supplement, our three mechatronics engineers who are responsible for electronics- and software development, mechanical design and functionalities of the handheld device.

The development team sits in offices at the Mads Clausen Institute University of Southern Denmark Campus in Sønderborg where we have access to high-tech equipment and facilities and expert help. Sønderborg offers a thriving social life. The candidate will be 100% employed by AmiNIC, but enrolled as a PostDoc at the University, supervised by Associate Professor; Roana Melina de Oliveira Hansen.

In AmiNIC we have an open and informal communication and structure. The employees are expected to be self-driven, independent and have a high degree innovation freedom. All good ideas are most welcome and we acknowledge that we are all experts in different fields and that progress is accomplished by combining these.
