You are here: Jobs / Project Associate (0,8-1 fte) @ PhotonDelta
Do you take the lead in driving multiple activities in a dynamic context into a successful delivery? Do you have experience and background of working in a multidisciplinary team and do you see the big picture, while attending to important details? And most importantly, are you ready for your next professional adventure? PhotonDelta needs your project management skills to further accelerate the photonic chip industry.
In April 2022, PhotonDelta’s proposal for the Dutch National Growth Fund was successfully awarded €1.1 billion. These funds are designated for the expansion of the ecosystem, industrialized production, and the development of application technology. Think of scaling production and research facilities, attracting and training talent and driving adoption of photonic chip technology.
This is where you come in! As a Project Associate, you’ll be responsible for the successful implementation of projects and activities across the core program pillars of PhotonDelta’s Internationalization team. You will be in close collaboration and coordination with colleagues in other departments, as well as with external stakeholders.
Your task is to get on track with ongoing projects and activities, co-define the scope of the project, create a solid project plan and guard progress in time towards deliverables. Delivering project deliverables smoothly and timely is one of your responsibilities. That may include organizing events, ensuring accurate reporting and documentation when relevant. You are also making draft project reports, keeping accurate minutes of meetings and follow-up on key agreements and outcomes. You will actively identify and manage risks in your project and report on progress to management.
Glad you asked (!).
Photonic technology detects, generates, transports and processes light. Current uses include lasers, sensors, and fiber-optic networks.
Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) combine two or more photonic functions into a single chip to create new, faster, and more energy efficient devices. PICs are highly effective at processing and transmitting data. They can also be integrated alongside traditional electronic chips and offer solutions for e.g., the expansion of 5G data networks and data centres, safer autonomous driving vehicles, and more efficient food production.
PhotonDelta was created by mandate of the Dutch government in December 2018 to accelerate the emerging Dutch integrated photonics industry. It was granted €240 million to execute the national plan for photonics (2018) and landed €1.1 billion in public and private investment to further grow the industry (2022).
With the PhotonDelta brand we represent an ecosystem of organizations that researches, designs, develops, and manufactures solutions with integrated photonics technology. Connecting pioneers in the field with investors, and viable markets, PhotonDelta helps to take the industry forward with funding, internationalisation, R&D roadmaps and marketing services.
