Tasks & Responsibilities

  • With a solid background in optical design,
    preferably in a lead role, this could be the start/continuation of your prosperous career.

  • In this role you’ll be responsible for optical designs,
    publications, networking and your own personal development. You have a thirst for (ground breaking) innovation and international collaborations. You thrive in a diverse and knowledge based environment and hold nothing back in sharing yours with others.

  • We’d like you to take responsibility and ownership over results
    and need you to push the boundaries of what is possible: if the existing approach is no longer sufficient, you will proactively take charge in order to maintain course.

  • For this, you have a pioneering spirit
    and are comfortable with the uncertainty that usually comes with complex scientific and engineering problems.

  • Your seniority will also show in the guidance given to our less senior colleagues
    and we expect you to delegate and monitor optical design tasks to them
