Research Scientist/Engineer - Electronic Devices


KBR is seeking an electronic/photonic/manufacturing device engineer or research scientist to provide support to a program focusing on printing techniques for electronic and photonic device fabrication. The selected candidate will use additive manufacturing and conventional cleanroom processing techniques to fabricate and design electronic and RF components for a variety of applications such as basic electronic controls, RF antennas, photonics, etc. Additive manufacturing refers to inkjet printing, aerosol jet printing, extrusion printing (such as Nscrypt), and 3D printing such as polyjet or thermoplastics; conventional cleanroom processing techniques refers to photolithography for electronic device fabrication and its associated characterization. Expertise is not expected in all of these areas, but some familiarity is needed. The selected candidate will complete research tasks with minimum oversight and deliver completed prototypes, produce reports, and process documentation. Duties will include designing experiments to characterize printer performance, identifying appropriate materials to deposit either purchased commercially or manufactured in-house, and some device design and characterization of manufactured devices. Additional responsibilities will include:

1) designing and fabricating photonic and electronic devices, 2) becoming an expert at running and maintaining both the aerosol jet and ink jet printers, 3) specifying additional materials and equipment to purchase to support research, 4) contributing to reports and presentations of technical progress, and 5) authoring scientific papers and attending conferences.

This position is located at the Air Force Research Laboratory, Sensor Directorate, Wright Patterson AFB, OH.

Sign On bonus and/or relocation assistance may be available for qualified candidates.
