What will you be doing?

In your role as Metrology 4 Semicon Program Manager you operate at the interface between content, strategy, organisation and business development.

You monitor the relationship between the various projects and make them transparent to stakeholders, ensuring that the individual projects contribute strategically to the Semicon Equipment roadmap. Here you are in close contact with the Market Director and the Principal and Senior Scientists.

You are a sounding board to the Business Developers and you have an initiating role in the development of new projects (both contract research and public-private partnerships) based on the knowledge position or competitive technologies and you support other project leaders in this field in the acquisition and management of projects. You have an overview of the projects in question and carry out some of these projects yourself as a Senior Project Manager.

What do we require of you?

You are a Senior Project Manager. You advise and support other project leaders. You are politically sensitive, organisation-conscious and communicative. In addition, you can cope well with the uncertainty associated with the complex scientific and engineering issues we are working on at TNO. You know how to create space for the (Principal) Scientists to develop themselves and their field of expertise, while at the same time giving priority to the results required for the projects.

To fulfil the role of Metrology 4 Semicon Program Manager optimally, you can identify with the following job profile: 
  • You have a master's degree or PhD in a technical discipline, ideally mechanical, physical or electrical engineering.
  • You have at least 10 years' experience in a high-tech environment, partly as a manager.
  • You have relevant experience in developing complex optomechatronic systems and delivery to customers, preferably with metrology.
  • You have experience with Program Management, Project Management and Project Development. You have preferably also completed training or courses in Project Management.
  • You have a large network in the international semiconductor industry and have an affinity with the commercialisation of knowledge or products.
  • You have experience in developing a strategy at programme level.

What can you expect of your work situation?

TNO is an independent research organisation whose expertise and research make an important contribution to the competitiveness of companies and organisations, to the economy and to the quality of society as a whole. With a workforce of around 3,500, we work for a wide range of clients: government agencies, SMEs, large companies, service providers and social organisations. Together we work on new knowledge, better products and clear advice on policy and processes. Everything we do is about having an impact. Our product and process innovations and our advice only make sense if they help the client improve their competitive position; if they allow the government to make its policy more effective; and if they truly help people and organisations move forward. In the field of semiconductor technology, TNO collaborates with global leaders in machine development and chip manufacturing.
