The Conformable Decoders research group focuses on the fabrication of mechanically-adaptive, piezoelectric micro-/nano- systems where all the activities are performed in the cleanroom facility. The group seeks to advance flexible/stretchable, piezoelectric sensors and actuators technologies that promise to be used on any curvy regions of animal/human body.
The postdoctoral associate will:
Initial appointment will be for one year, with the possibility of extension based on funding and the direction of the research.
• PhD in materials science, physics, electrical engineering, biomedical engineering or in relevant field;
• Experience in cleanroom processes and microfabrication methods and in skin and muscle tissue engineering technologies and methods;
• Experience with ultrasound transducers technologies;
• Experience with common lab protocols such as chemical etching, dry etching, insulator depositions, photolithography, generation of polymer templates, defining polymer molds, generation of lithography masks;
• Ability to contribute in a multidisciplinary group of students and researchers;
• Strong interpersonal skills and ability to work independently as well as in a highly collaborative team environment;
• Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
