    • Experience in the design and fabrication of high-performance gamma-ray and X-ray semiconductor detectors, with room-temperature semiconductors being of special interest
    • Experience with the characterization of device structure with state-of-the-art electrical, optical, and -materials analysis tools
    • Experience performing detector performance measurements, using of signal preamplifiers, and working with amplifier multichannel analyzers
    • Participation in or management of cradle-to-grave (design planning to product release) development of semiconductor radiation detection systems
    • Knowledge of standard test and measurement methods, as well as specifications, for hard radiation detection products
    • Ideally, experience in product design, development, engineering, and/or testing at companies such as Kromek, Redlen, RapiScan, DigiRad, etc.
