Position title
Graduate Scientist

Excited by pushing the boundaries of Science, Engineering and Technology?

At Paragraf we have developed thin film semiconductor heterostructure devices using a proprietary process for producing single-atom thick, two-dimensional materials, including graphene, directly onto crystalline substrates such as silicon, silicon-carbide, sapphire and gallium-nitride. The contamination-free technology is scalable, and compatible with existing electronic device manufacturing production processes. Our technology is defining the next generation of electronics devices and we are looking for driven and enthusiastic individuals unafraid of challenging the currently known to deliver next generation, game changing products.

Right now we are looking for inquisitive, bright and driven degree level graduates to join our growing family at Paragraf. We currently have roles available in our solid-state devices research team where we use applied science to harness next generation two-dimensional and semiconductor materials to produce transformative products. If you have a background in physics, materials science, chemistry, or similar discipline and have an interest in cutting edge electronic device development paired with a passion for shaping the future of technology, then we’d be very happy to hear from you.

The positions are ideal for recent graduates looking to develop a career in industry; training and development will be provided to enable you to grow into the role rather than an expectation that you would be joining to fulfil a specific job specification from day one.

  • Become part of the solid-state device development team, integrating 2D materials into cutting edge electronic devices.
  • Contribute to the design, fabrication, and testing of graphene devices with an attitude of continual optimisation and innovation.
  • Conduct hands-on experiments and materials characterisation in a range of laboratory environments including cleanrooms.
  • Compile updates for technology and management review teams.
  • Assist in the documentation and implementation of new R&D practices, approaches and policies.
  • Prepare and present project updates for internal meetings.
  • Analyse, document and record results in accordance with company processes & procedures.
  • Help grow and develop the Paragraf family.
  • Strong, applied, hands-on experimental capabilities.
  • Background in physics, materials science, chemistry, chemical engineering, or similar discipline.
  • Highly proactive with a considered and organised approach to work and tasks.
  • Capability to grasp scientific concepts quickly and apply these to your own work.
  • Comfortable communicating clearly and concisely to a broad range of audiences.
  • Ability to reflect, learn from mistakes and respond positively to feedback.
  • Ability to handle several on-going tasks and prioritise to organise own workload.
  • Capability to work autonomously and make considered decisions.
  • A keen interest in turning science into real world technology breakthroughs.

Advantageous, although not necessary, skills:

  • Experience in semiconductor processing, micro or nanofabrication in a cleanroom environment.
  • Knowledge of photolithography and electron-beam lithography processes.
  • Semiconductor device electrical characterisation and data interpretation.
  • Experience of materials characterisation techniques, including Raman spectroscopy, AFM, Hall measurements, PL, SEM, XRD, XPS, and TEM.
  • Understanding of two-dimensional materials, technologies, devices, and applications.
  • Knowledge of thin film deposition techniques, such as CVD, ALD or PVD.
