The position is a part-time secondment from his current position of Senior Lecturer in Microengineering at the University of Wales, Bangor where he leads the microengineering and lab-on-a-chip research activities and runs the university's MSc course in Nanotechnology and Microfabrication. Julian has been active in the area of microengineering and microfabrication for the past 20 years and is a founder of the UK Laser Micromachining Centre. His secondment is part of the centre's ongoing aims to provide world class laser micromachining services though it's in-house facilities and experienced and knowledgeable staff.
