The Bioelectronics Systems Lab (http://www.bioee.ee.columbia.edu) at The Fu Foundation School of Engineering & Applied Science of Columbia University in the City of New York invites applications for an Associate Research Scientist to work on a single-molecule bioelectronics research. Reporting to the Lab Director, the Associate Research Scientist will be responsible for assisting with integrated circuits design, PCB design, and working with graduate students and postdocs.
The Associate Research Scientist should be able to work independently, troubleshoot, and resolve problems involving both equipment and processes in Columbia's cleanroom facilities. The engineer should be able to learn about unfamiliar topics quickly and independently. The fabrication engineer should be able to communicate clearly with lab users, other team members, other departments of the university, and with vendors as needed.
The Associate Research Scientist will also assist with general lab management responsibilities for maintaining safe and effective working environment within the Bioelectronics Systems Lab, in compliance with all University and government requirements and regulations as directed by the university Environmental, Health, and Safety (EH&S) department. That includes but not limited to safe handling of chemicals and gas cylinders, implementing and maintaining safety training and safe manner of work in the laboratory.
A PhD degree in Physics, Electrical Engineering, or Bioengineering is required. Must have a strong understanding of biophysics and electronics, including at a minimum PCB design, but preferably also integrated circuits design. A minimum of 2 years of working experience as an engineer or other related educational experience is required.
