MIT Lincoln Laboratory
JOB DESCRIPTIONThe Chemical, Microsystem, and Nanoscale Technologies Group combines chemistry, optics, photonics, microfluidics, and nanofabrication disciplines, enabling the development of new technologies in the areas of chemical-biological defense, diagnostic and forensic analysis, and sensors and signal processors. The work includes the design, development, and testing of chemical sensors for trace explosive and toxic chemical detection (both point and standoff); multifunctional microsystems combining sensing, actuation, and energy sources; and the design, fabrication, and demonstration of metamaterials, plasmonic and nanophotonic devices, and microfluidic components.
The candidate will be part of a fast paced and multidisciplinary research team engaged in several projects related to microfluidics with applications in the biomedical, optofluidic and microhydraulic areas. Expertise in microfluidic device fabrication, as well as mechanical and fluidic computational design, is desired. Experience with the design and implementation of microfluidic hardware and control software is a plus.
The ideal candidate will possess a Ph. D. in mechanical engineering, bioengineering, electrical engineering or related field, demonstrating highly developed technical skills as well as the ability to initiate and conduct the design, fabrication, and analysis of microfluidic microsystems and their integration with associated control systems. Candidate will also have effective organizational, analytical, and problem solving skills and the ability to cooperate with peers in a team environment.
Note: This is a full time, two-year appointment.
