Microfabrication Consultant | TTP Group

Microfabrication Consultant


At the interface of microfabrication, physics and biochemistry, you will work as part of a team to develop next-generation microfluidic biosensors and MEMS transducers.

The Role

You will join a world-class multi-disciplinary team and become our expert in microfabrication processes. You will have access to TTP’s brand new microfabrication cleanroom, laser process lab and metrology suite. Project work is highly varied, but lab-on-a-chip biosensors for disease diagnosis and ultrasonic MEMS transducers for sensing and haptics are key areas for the Sensors and Devices group.

Scientists at TTP contribute at all stages of technology development including invention, theoretical analysis, design, prototyping, testing, and transfer to manufacture. Our scientists are all-rounders who can quickly grasp new ideas, solve our clients’ most challenging problems and communicate solutions clearly and with authority.

The role is not purely technical, and will evolve over time to include the prospection, sale and leadership of complex technology developments. Consultants develop practical experience in identifying markets and potential clients and spotting business opportunities enabled by technology advances. Sensors and Devices is a growing group and new members will have the opportunity to help define and develop the group’s expansion into new markets and technologies.

Qualifications and Training

  • A 1st class degree (or equivalent) from a leading university in physics, engineering or a related discipline.
  • A PhD with significant hands-on experience of microfabrication in a clean-room environment.

Skills and Experience

  • If you have worked on the development of a microfluidic device, especially a sensor, we would love to hear all about it.
  • You know your way around a differential equation and enjoy a quick back-of-the-envelope calculation.
  • Curiosity for new ideas – whether it’s a new technology, or how a multinational really makes money – drives you to dig deeper to gain real insight.
  • You enjoy the challenge of presenting the results of your work and showing a client why it matters to them.
  • Change is not scary. You jump at the chance to develop new skills, work on a problem you’ve never heard of before and to take on new responsibilities.
