Process Engineer

We are looking for a Backend Process Engineer to join an innovative scientific organisation, working on next generation OPV technology which is set to be used in a range of different emerging markets. The position will give you the chance to shape current and future production process which will have a real impact on the development of production methods in years to come. This is a great role for an ambitious engineer who is keen to make a real difference in a lab based environment working with a mix of engineers and scientists. The position will play a pivotal role in putting in place steps in the medium/high volume manufacturing process.

Other day to day responsibilities will include:

-              Working on encapsulation, connectorisation, dicing, testing and packaging..

-              Working as a hands on engineer on a range of production/processes issues including equipment design and specification, process optimization and module performance testing.
