miDiagnostics is developing a new generation of disposable tests that require only drops of blood and allow detection of cells, proteins, nucleic acids, and/or small molecules. Our core technology is a novel silicon-based nanofluidic processor that automatically processes the blood sample without the need of pumps. miDiagnostics’ ambition is to remove the need for complex and costly instrumentation, enabling medical decisions to be taken at the point of need or remote areas with a high level of comfort to both patients and caregivers.
miDiagnostics is looking for an experienced, talented and versatile process development engineer responsible for the development and optimization of silicon-chip back-end processes in the production flow of a medical diagnostics device prototype. The processes will be focused around surface modifications of Si: (plasma) cleaning and thin organic film depositions (CVD). You will be responsible to develop and optimize the processes.
- Develop, qualify and implement surface modifying processes starting from feasibility through optimization and validation to transfer to production
- Develop and execute design and process validation activities including Installation Qualifications (IQ), Operational Qualifications (OQ), Performance Qualifications (PQ)
- protocols, testing and reports
- Identify and troubleshoot process-related issues
