Just in case anyone out there has or is a promising candidate, I wanted to point out that Rice University is looking for a new clean room facilities manager. (This is not a soft money position.) Here is the text of the advertisement:
Rice University is seeking a technical manager to oversee the operations of its clean room user facility and associated characterization equipment. This Class 100/1000 facility contains a suite of instruments, including a photolithography mask maker, a contact mask aligner, an e-beam evaporator, an RIE/PECVD system, and a collection of characterization tools. The manager’s responsibilities include oversight of this facility, training of undergraduate and graduate students and other users, and maintenance and upkeep of the equipment. Applicants must have a BS degree in a science or engineering discipline (PhD preferred but not required), and extensive experience with several of the relevant instruments or a related technical degree or diploma with an additional 2 years of the related experience (for a total of 7 years of related experience working with clean room instruments). Salary will commensurate with experience. The need to fill this position is immediate, and resumes will be examined as they arrive. Please visit http://cohesion.rice.edu/campusservices/humanresources/riceworks.cfm to apply for this listing. Rice University is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer.
