You will add value to our products by unraveling the complex interactions of materials and processes that occur during high speed inkjet printing and distinguish between suppositions and facts.
What will be your job like as Experimental Physicist ?
Within Canon Production Printing we use simulation and modelling as a major tool for the development of new products. The prerequisite for such approach is the availability of validated models that can be used to answer the questions that arise during product design and development. The colleagues in the System Level Modelling Department create, combine and/or acquire new models to extend the scope of topics where the model-based approach can be used.
In some cases these models combine several specialistic topics from different disciplines (physics, mechanics, material science, chemistry, …). In other cases, advanced data science techniques are used to construct a model. For all model developments experimental validation is an essential step.
Currently in the SLM team a vacancy exists for an experimental physicist that focusses on the validation of models and methods to determine specific input parameters for the models.
In this role you will collaborate with both our multidisciplinary team of developers of the models and the product developers that use these models. You will design and implement methods for experimental validation and you will also be involved in the design and implementation of measurement methods to obtain the input parameters for the models. Your focus on the experimental support of the model development complies with your ambition to realize new and improved high-tech products based on understanding of the basic mechanisms and relations.
Create and use an infrastructure of experimental setups for validation of specific aspects of simulation models and measurement of input parameters
Cooperation with internal and external partners to optimize the effectiveness and quality of this infrastructure
Communication of results to product developers and other stakeholders within our R&D
Furthermore you meet the following criteria:
Experimental physicist (MSc or PhD level) with demonstrated experience in modelling your own work
Experience with a wide variety of experimental techniques and tools
Familiarity with methods for statistical data analysis
Familiarity with the basics of chemistry and mechanical engineering
Proficient in using software packages like Python, Matlab, FEM packages, …
Awareness of modern data science techniques and/or machine learning is a pre
Sound balance between thorough quality and progress
Team player with good communication skills (Dutch, English and possibly German)
Experience in collaborations with external partners
Permissioned to work in the Netherlands
What can we offer?
We offer you a job in an open and creative environment within an international organization, where you work with other designers and developers on usability and interaction for products and devices. Your contribution is essential for building an appealing user experience and you work on a variety of projects within product development.
And there is more….
Besides a challenging working environment, scope for personal and professional development you will receive an interesting package of employment conditions:
a salary in line with current market standards
38 days leave
travel allowance to and from work
a laptop and a smartphone
standard year-end bonus of 1 month's salary and holiday pay
extensive schooling and development opportunities
