Over deze vacature

To develop print strategies, you work in a multidisciplinary team together with physicists, software engineers and chemists. You predict, analyse and optimize the print quality by building up knowledge of the specific characteristics of the inkjet printing process and its interaction with media.


You are a physicist with at least a master degree, but preferably a PhD in a relevant field. You have a good understanding of physical interactions on different time and length scales and a strong affinity to approach complex problems hands-on and to the point. Know-how of scripting in Matlab and or Python is preferred. Helped by the other team members, you are able to define an investigation program, and carry out the printing experiments independently to ensure your designs meet the requirements. Print results are presented and discussed with the team. Responsibilities:

  • Testing on both simple and advanced equipment
  • Propose and validate design rules for ink development
  • Propose and validate design rules for ink development
  • Design and perform experimental tests for picoliter droplet behaviour
  • Critically asses print quality artefacts via in-depth root cause analyses
  • Evaluate prints from both simple and advanced printing equipment
  • Discuss the results in an multi-disciplinary team to direct follow-up research
  • Prepare easy to understand summaries from big amounts of complex data
