Wootzano Limited, a Scottish company in Edinburgh with its manufacturing base in Sedgefield, County Durham, was created to improve the way medicine is administered. This gave rise to the Nanject (previously known as Nanopatch) project which originated from an undergraduate thesis, aiming to create a pharmaceutical patch that can deliver drugs replacing traditional needles or syringes with nanoneedles. Today, Wootzano has a novel patent-pending technology for use in flexible electronics, robotics, electronic skin, medical devices, chemical/bio-sensing and drug delivery systems.


Wootzano is looking for a motivated Graduate Engineer to work on developing a novel electronic skin our company has been commercialising. The electronic skin has already gained immense momentum from various companies and has been focussed towards the robotic end effector market. The role will be supported for the first 12 months by Teesside University who will provide mentoring support from experienced academics in the field.


The candidate will be working within the cleanrooms and various R&D labs to formulate devise experiments. These experiments range from the synthesis of nanostructures to increasing the stretchability of our sensors by over 200%. The candidate will also get an opportunity to work within sample production facilities and will be part of the ambitious scaling up process during the manufacturing of our novel electronic skin.



What are we looking for?



The ideal candidate should be creative and keen to apply their existing software development skills to an emerging field of technology. They should enjoy improving their skills and working within a friendly and dynamic team. The candidate should also be able to think out of the box and must have prior research experience.

·       Strong technical, analytical, problem-solving skills

·       Independent working ability

·       Knowledge of working with elastomers


Desirable skills

The role is full time working mainly at the Sedgefield location but may occasionally be asked to travel to clients on-site address or Wootzano’s main office in Edinburgh, Scotland (reasonable travel subsistence costs will be paid for by Wootzano).
