Software Engineering position at the University of Aveiro, Portugal

CICECO-Aveiro Institute of Materials, Portugal, has a Software Engineer opening within the scope of the M3DLoC pilot-line project. As one of the project consortium partners, we are developing a novel in-line imaging system to provide a high spatial resolution for inspection of parts in fabrication. The system is based on a scanning probe imaging. The task of the Software Engineer will be development and implementation of the control software, automation, and integration of the scanning probe imager into the processing line. This work will also require development and implementation of algorithms of signal and image acquisition and processing, as well as of interaction of various motion and measurement tools.

Requirements to the candidate: a BS/MS/PhD degree in Computer Science, Physics, Electrical Engineering, or in any closely related field, at least 5-year experience in software development for motion, test and measurement automation. Experience with scanning-probe measurements, low-level signal measurements, microwave measurements, and CAD design are desirable but not necessary. Excellent command in English is necessary for efficient interaction with the project consortium partners, which will be a significant part of the work. The contract will be initially for 12 months with a possibility of extension up to the completion of the project in December 2021 based on mutual interest. The salary is 44,600 Euro per annum before taxes.

Interested candidates should send a Resume to Dr. Alexander Tselev (atselev@ua.pt). The position is available now and will remain open until filled.

M3DLoC Project Open Day 2020 Workshop & Exhibition

The M3DLoC Project had its 1st Open Day Workshop & Exhibition on the 23rd January 2020, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Brussels, Belgium. The aim of this workshop was to bring together experts, developers and end-users, to discuss exciting new developments in the project and in the field of microfluidic biomedical devices, development of 3D printing equipment and use of nanomaterials such as graphene for 3D printing applications. The workshop was a unique occasion for networking, related EC project clustering and enhancement of exploitation opportunities.
Senior members coming from leading bio-medical organisations participated in the M3DLoC Open Day 2020 Workshop and Exhibition, such as: GSK, GE Healthcare (Whatman), Viscofan, Fluigent, Keralty among others.


M3DLoC Project Meeting – 22 January 2020, Brussels, Belgium.

The M3DLoC Project had its 24-month review meeting on the 22nd of January 2020, at the Research and Innovation Directorate in the European Commission in Brussels. 34 participants from the 18 Partner organisations, along with Project Officer, Dr George Kosikos, attended this meeting.

Partners gave an overview of the achieved results in each work package and showed their presentations for the Project Open Day the next day, for approval from the consortium.
