Working at MIT offers opportunities, an environment, a culture and benefits that just aren’t found together anywhere else. If you’re curious, motivated, want to be part of a unique community, and help shape the future then take a look at this opportunity.

POSTDOCTORAL ASSOCIATE, WIRELESS BIOMEDICAL SENSING AND ANTENNAE, Media Lab, to join the Nano-Cybernetic Biotrek (NCB) 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.
