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 present at the Advanced Materials for Additive Manufacturing (AMAM) meeting – Cambridge, UK

M3DLoC was present at the Advanced Materials for Additive Manufacturing –AMAM– consortium meeting (joined to the Nano-Carbon Enhanced Materials –NCEM- consortium meeting) on the 10th and 11th July 2019 at Wolfson College, Cambridge.

This consortium is run by Cambridge Nanomaterials Technology Ltd, one of the M3DLoC partners who is in charge of Exploitation and Dissemination. The aim of this consortium is to provide their members a unique insight into use of advanced materials in additive manufacturing, development of additive manufacturing technologies for various applications, and to facilitate the commercial uptake and bring together potential users with a shared interest to address commercialisation challenges.

Project Coordinator, Professor Costas A. Charitidis from NTUA and Dr Elias P. Koumoulos from IRES gave talks at this meeting. The M3DLoC poster and leaflets were also at display during the event.

 

M3DLoC Project Meeting –4-5 July 2019, Limerick, Ireland.

University of Limerick (UL) hosted the M18 meeting of the M3DLoC project on the 4th and 5th July, with delegates from all 18 partners organisations attending. This was an opportunity for the M3DLoC partners to meet the new Project Officer (Dr George Kosikos) and Project Monitor (Dr Maddalena Rostagno).
