Governor Andrew M. Cuomo said, "The rapid growth of New York's world-class nanotechnology industry is creating new opportunities to build our high-tech economy and to establish exciting careers for young people and families throughout the State. With more than 300 new positions available at the globally recognized College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, the Nano Job Fair provides a pathway for 21st century jobs in New York's expanding technology sector, and I encourage anyone interested to participate in this important event."

New York State Labor Commissioner Peter M. Rivera said, "The Department of Labor is pleased to work in partnership with the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering to help connect New Yorkers with high-tech careers in the fast-growing nanotechnology industry. The Nano Job Fair offers a prime example of the high-quality jobs available in the State's emerging technology sector, as well as our commitment to giving residents access to new opportunities in the fields will define our future workforce."

CNSE Senior Vice President and CEO Dr. Alain Kaloyeros said, "Led by the pioneering vision and strategy of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, the expansion of New York's innovation economy is providing exciting careers that exemplify the New New York. We are pleased to work in partnership with the Governor and State Department of Labor to ensure that all New Yorkers have the chance to pursue new opportunities at CNSE as part of the state's world-class nanotechnology industry."

The Nano Job Fair, which will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., will provide candidates with an opportunity to learn more about the job openings at CNSE, complete and submit applications, and participate in introductory interviews with CNSE representatives.

A significant outreach effort is being made to encourage women, veterans and minority candidates to participate in the Nano Job Fair, which will showcase a variety of technical, engineering and infrastructure support positions, including engineering and process operators; facilities operations technicians, with skills in HVAC and nanoelectronics tool fit-up and maintenance; and environmental health and safety officers.

Additionally, candidates are being sought for positions in administrative, operational and support roles, ranging from information technology and purchasing to site services, with openings that include security officers, 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 participating in the job fair are encouraged to pre-register and upload their resumes online at www.cnse.albany.edu/Outreach/NanoJobFair.aspx.
