IMR Members of Technical Staff Welcome Industry Colleagues

IMR Members of Technical Staff recently welcomed colleagues from Worthington Industries to three of Ohio State’s core materials research facilities.  During a recent busy afternoon,  Mark Brenner (at the Semiconductor Epitaxy and Analysis Laboratory – SEAL), Henk Colijn (at the Center for Electron Microscopy and Analysis – CEMAS) and Dr. John Carlin and other Nanotech West Laboratory staff provided tours of their facilities and spoke with colleagues from Worthington Industries to assist their efforts to understand end user markets.

In addition to managing labs, conducting research and collaborating with other scientists, our Members of Technical Staff often conduct custom facility tours for industry colleagues, visiting researchers, and Ohio State classes.

IMR Members of Technical Staff (MTS) are highly skilled technical experts, research engineers and scientists assigned to select research facilities on OSU’s Columbus campus as part of our research enhancement efforts.

Their primary function is to enable world-class research within our core, multi-user facilities.  Their responsibilities include maintaining facilities at peak operating conditions, coordinating between materials user facilities across campus, enabling facility access, providing training and generally being available to assist and, in certain cases, lead research programs.

IMR Members of Technical Staff are a major part of the fabric that enables cross-disciplinary research,  enabling access to researchers not only from Ohio State but also from outside the university.  In addition to dealing with all aspects of maintaining complex instrumentation, including scheduling, data management and financial responsibilities, MTS employees are encouraged to develop research programs and contracts depending upon their own level of expertise and education.
