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 IN WIRELESS SENSING AND ELECTROMAGNETICS, NANO-CYBERNETIC BIOTREK, Media Laboratory, Nano-Cybernetic Biotrek​ (NCB) Group, to join a research group whose aim is to develop extremely miniaturized micro-nano-devices using meta-materials that can non-invasively 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; transmitter/receiver systems; RF circuits; and implantable and wearable antennae for diverse applications in wireless power transfer, sensing, magnetic resonance imaging and biomedical applications.
