Albany, NY | Posted on October 15th, 2012

"The Nano Job Fair next month is welcome news for all job seekers in New York, especially as the State works to stimulate local economies and create jobs for our families," Governor Andrew M. Cuomo said. "With more than 300 positions available, the nanotechnology industry in the Capital Region offers many exciting opportunities for professionals of all backgrounds in this fast-growing field. I encourage New Yorkers to attend the job fair, no matter if you're looking to get back on your feet or planning to take the next step forward in your career."

"Led by the vision and investment of Governor Andrew Cuomo, New York is gaining worldwide recognition as the global capital of the emerging nanotechnology sector," said CNSE Senior Vice President and CEO Dr. Alain Kaloyeros. "The Nano Job Fair demonstrates the success of the Governor's innovation-driven economic strategy for a new New York, which is providing exciting and lucrative high-tech career opportunities that are open to all New Yorkers as part of this fast-growing 21st century industry."

A significant outreach effort is now underway to encourage women, veterans and minority candidates to participate in the Nano Job Fair, scheduled for 5:30 to 9 p.m. at CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex. Candidates will have a chance to learn about and apply for the job openings, and to participate in introductory interviews with representatives of CNSE.

A wide variety of technical, engineering and infrastructure support positions will be showcased at the Nano Job Fair, including engineering and process operator positions for CNSE's Global 450mm Consortium (G450C), Center for Semiconductor Research (CSR), and U.S. Photovoltaic Manufacturing Consortium (PVMC); facilities operations technicians, with skills in HVAC and nanoelectronics tool fit-up and maintenance; and environmental health and safety officers.

In addition, a number of opportunities are available in administrative, operational and support positions, in areas that include information technology, purchasing, and site services, with roles ranging from security officers to cleaning and maintenance personnel.

Annual salaries range from $35,000 to over $100,000 for the positions, which are funded through the Research Foundation for SUNY (RF), a private, nonprofit, educational corporation that administers sponsored program activity for the University at Albany. The RF offers exceptional benefits such as healthcare, dental, vision, pension plans, competitive pay, generous paid time off, tuition assistance, life insurance and long-term disability insurance.

Individuals interested in attending and interviewing at the job fair are encouraged to pre-register and upload their resumes online at cnse.albany.edu/Outreach/NANOvember/NanoJobFair.aspx.
