Together, we generate over 300 peer-reviewed publications annually and, with a network of over 200 industry partners and customers worldwide, we are focused on delivering real impact from our excellent research.
Tyndall is home to a high-tech national research infrastructure unique in Ireland and is a national research asset. Hosting the only full CMOS, MEMS and III-V Wafer Semiconductor fabrication facilities and services in Ireland, Tyndall is capable of creating opportunities and prototyping new products for its target industries.
The MEMS Group at Tyndall invites applications for an exciting position as Senior Researcher to drive Tyndall’s MEMS components and smart systems (MEMSYS) technology development programme under the Europractice NEXTS project. Within NEXTS, Tyndall will establish new MEMS device processes, wafer-level MEMS packaging, stand-alone back-end MEMS packaging services, system integration and co-design of MEMS-based smart systems. Example of technologies targeted by this development are: piezoelectric MEMS, micromagnetics-on-silicon, and micro and nano electrodes, among others. With this in mind, Tyndall aims at forming links with international partners, to manage MEMS training activities, and to promote NEXTS MEMS services throughout Europe. Users of these MEMS services and training activities will come from both academic and industrial backgrounds.
