POSTDOCTORAL ASSOCIATE, WIRELESS BIOMEDICAL SENSING AND ANTENNAE, Program in Media Arts and Sciences, to join the Nano-Cybernetic Biotrek (NCB) (https://web.mit.edu/deblina-sarkar/) research group. The group’s aim is to develop extremely miniaturized micro-nano-devices using meta-materials that can noninvasively and remotely/wirelessly monitor and modulate our biological system. The device will harvest energy from external applied fields for its functioning and also modulate the external fields for communicating sensed data. Responsibilities include conducting research to design and develop wireless sensing technologies, implantable and wearable antennae, transmitter/receiver systems, RF circuit, for diverse applications in wireless power transfer, sensing, magnetic resonance imaging and biomedical applications. Additional information about the position is available at https://web.mit.edu/deblina-sarkar/positionsavailable.html. A full job description is available at https://www.media.mit.edu/about/ job -opportunities/ (https://www.media.mit.edu/about/job-opportunities/) .
REQUIRED: a Ph.D. in electrical/electronic engineering, mechanical engineering, physics, materials science, bioengineering, or another relevant field; strong background in electromagnetism, antennae design, RF circuit design, RFID design, RF engineering, and wireless communication; experience with wireless sensing, energy harvesting, magnetic resonance imaging, magnetics etc.; and experience with simulators for wireless sensing and antennae design. PREFERRED: experience with nanofabrication, a background in solid state physics and electronic devices, and experience with in-vivo animal work.
