Join our team to revolutionize medicine.   The Center for Bioelectronic Medicine at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research is recruiting for multiple positions in the fields of neurophysiology, neural engineering, microfabrication, bioelectronics and biosensing, and neural decoding and data analytics.  

MICROFABRICATION LAB open position: Microfabrication and Sensors Technician

Duties & Responsibilities
The Microfabrication and Sensors Technician will fabricate neural implants and sensor systems, assist with research, and collaborate with Institute faculty, staff, fellows and students in the areas of microfabrication and sensor development. 

The successful candidate will:
•	Provide experimental and fabrication support to projects aimed at developing chronic implants for the brain and nerves and associated sensing systems
•	Fabricate flexible microdevices and sensor systems
•	Assist with experiments, organize and analyze data, and report experimental results
•	Assist with maintenance and procurement of equipment and supplies relating to microdevice fabrication

Basic Qualifications
•	College background in Bioengineering, Mechanical, Electrical, or Materials Engineering, Physical Sciences, Biomedical fields or a related field
•	Experimental background in at least one of the fields of microfabrication, sensors, or microfluidics
•	One or more years’ experience in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), biological microelectromechanical systems (BioMEMS) or micro- and nanofabrication or related experience desirable. Education may count towards experience.

Each successful candidate will work as part of a multidisciplinary team to determine the nature of neural control over molecular, cellular and organ functions of the body, the parts of the brain that regulate those nerves, and the signals that the brain receives to monitor cell and organ function. Projects will focus on determining which nerve fibers exert control, the types of signals those fibers use, and how these signals can be manipulated to treat diseases and conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, paralysis, Crohn’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes and even cancer.
