Canadian Bank Note Company, Limited: Nanoelectronics Physicist: Molecular Electronic Devices

Canadian Bank Note Company, Limited

This is a Full-time position in Ottawa, ON posted March 2, 2021.

We are CBN, Canadian Bank Note Company, Limited.

Headquartered in Ottawa, Ontario, with primary manufacturing operations based in Canada.

CBN employs over 1,500 people worldwide.

CBN was established in 1897 to supply security-printed products to the Canadian government, which it has done continuously ever since.

The supply of Canadian currency, passports, and postage stamps are three important activities entrusted to the Company and as a result the company is recognized as part of Canada’s critical infrastructure.

CBN has expanded from this base to the supply of the same and similar products to other countries and today more than half of CBN’s sales originate outside of Canada.CBN creates secure documents with original designs that include a comprehensive set of intricate security features, making them extremely difficult to counterfeit.

Our scientists and production team have previously developed and deployed leading innovations in substrates, inks, coatings and more.

With this proven history of technical leadership, CBN has the resources and insight to develop this new, more broadly applicable technology.We are developing a new manufacturing technology that is automated, of high precision, and heavily parallelized.We will use it to make counterfeit-proof banknotes, passports, and drivers licenses.Thistechnology has broader applicability to secure documents of all types, as well as to computers, medical uses, and environmental remediation.To support this effort, we are hiring a team of subject matter expert scientists and engineers.Nanoelectronics Physicist:Molecular Electronic Devices (MED)Exceptional candidates will provide a record of achievement demonstrating deep expertise and experience in the physics and chemistry/materials science of the design and operation of molecular wires and switches.In particular, we seek a recognized expert with hands-on experimental and theoretical experience to develop novel molecular electronic devices based on graphene and carbon nanotubes—this in collaboration with a world-class team of scientists and engineers, with world-class hardware and computational tools.The position also requires expertise in physics-based modeling of these molecular structures, wires, and devices using Density Functional Theory and Semi-Empirical modeling tools.The ability to write original code for molecular electronic device design and analysis would be a major plus.The candidate’s resume should describe any original and seminal contributions made to the field, in theory and experiment.This individual will also be required to develop experiments and assist with the fabrication and testing of devices to measure properties and performance, and will have experience in this regard.The resume should provide clear examples and cite publications demonstrating relevant accomplishments, delineating the candidate’s unique contributions vs.
