Job Summary

The mission of our lab is to build self-contained microsystems that will combine and process natural signals (such as bio, chemical, optical and thermal signals) as well as electrical signals on a single chip platform by integrating new MEMS/nano structures with low power, wireless VLSI circuits and systems ( Our laboratory needs an electronics engineer to help us build prototypes for a variety of neurotechnology and biomedical instrumentation applications. Organization, communication, and enthusiasm for science are critical skills for this position. We intend for this position to be long-term with growth and advancement especially as fabrication and testing skills progress.


  • Operation of advanced packaging tools such as flip chip, dicing, metal coating, or other tools used in the development of advanced miniature electronic and optoelectronic systems.
  • Coordinate the fabrication of component parts.
  • Conduct performance and reliability testing of the electrical and/or optical properties of miniature assemblies.
  • Performs wire bonding and ball bonding on ASICs, neural probes, and other microsized devices to be used for research and development.
  • Soldering and solder reflow of custom parts and SMDs to PCBs and custom prototype boards.
  • Hand assembly of miniature electronic or optoelectronic systems using microscopes, microforceps, and vacuum tool applicators. Skillful application of adhesives having special optical, electrical, or thermal properties for various packages.
  • Keep laboratory supplies ready by inventorying stock; placing orders; verifying receipt.
  • Keep equipment operating by following operating instructions, troubleshooting breakdowns, and performing preventive maintenance.
