  • 5+ years of experimental background in multi-disciplinary optical systems and/or lasers.
  • Direct Technical management is an advantage.
  • Background in ultra-fast optics experience (fs lasers, OPOs, pump-probe experiments) is an advantage.
  • Experience in the semiconductor industry and understanding of the fab environment is an advantage.
  • Ability to identify, comprehend and analyze various technological paths, based on diverse physical principles.
  • Hands-on capabilities: Design and construct complicated laboratory setups.
  • Disruptive Innovation thinking – daring to challenge the status quo. Strong problem-solving and troubleshooting capabilities, and an ‘out-of-the-box’ approach.
  • Leadership skills - Ability to manage small teams responsible for complex technological activities and projects (internally and with external vendors) in areas of large uncertainty in a multi-disciplinary global environment.
