Job Summary

The University of Pittsburgh NanoScale Fabrication and Characterization Facility is seeking a Lab Assistant for 3D design optimization for our new state-of-the-art Nanoscribe Professional system.
The Nanoscribe Professional GT is a 3D laser-based system that is capable of maskless lithography and extremely fine 3D printing. It combines two writing modes in one device: an ultra-precise piezo mode for arbitrary 3D trajectories (fixed-beam moving-sample) and the high-speed galvo mode (moving-beam fixed-sample) for fastest structuring in a layer-by-layer fashion. In combination with the software package, the system is embedded best along the 3D printing workflow and offers a high degree of automation for direct manufacturing.
The main duties of Lab Assistant will include working with NFCF staff and different Pitt research groups on designing 3D devices and structures in Solidworks and AutoDesk software. Lab Assistant will need to work in the cleanroom on Nanoscribe system and other fabrication equipment in the cleanroom.
