The SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering held a job fair Thursday in Greece to recruit for 150 current and future jobs.
The Governor's Office and the state Labor Department collaborated with CNSE on the event, which supports the governor's innovation-driven economic development strategy.
Candidates are being recruited to work in CNSE's Photovoltaic Manufacturing and Technology Development Center. The facility will be doing cutting-edge work in solar technology.
"We're looking for people who are excited about the challenge of the next generation of technology, and you know, Rochester has a long and great history in that, so we want to be part of that future history here," said Dean Fuleihan, SUNY CNSE.
CNSE has opportunities for high-tech and more traditional career paths.
Salaries range from $35,000 to over $100,000, and are funded by the Research Foundation for SUNY.
