Experimental engineer for nanopore devices

For our work in new devices based on solid state nanopores, we are looking for an enthusiastic employee eager to shape tomorrow s health care technologies.

What you will do

Within imec s Life Science Technologies department, our group s research activities focus on the development of novel tools for health care applications. Current projects vary from lab-on-a-chip systems to photonic sensing and imaging devices and molecular analysis tools based on solid state nanopores. Such technologies require a multidisciplinary approach within a team that has expertise in engineering, molecular biology, cell biology and surface chemistry.

For our work in new devices based on solid state nanopores, we are looking for an enthusiastic employee eager to shape tomorrow s health care technologies. We aim at research and development at the highest international level and with relevance for the biomedical and pharmaceutical industry.

One of the emerging platforms is based on a combination of solid state nanopores with state-of-the-art field-effect-transistors, enabling massively parallelized readout of nanopore devices, which are designed for single molecular sensing. We expect this technology will have a direct impact on point of care biomedical research, diagnostics, and precision medicine.

As the successful candidate:

  • You will provide experimental support to enable maturing the nanopore technology development within an internal imec project. Focus of activities would be on building experimental setups, developing measurement and analysis protocols, characterisation and support in the design of novel imec fabricated devices. The wafer-level fabrication and basic device characterization will be carried out in imec s semiconductor pilot line and established device testing labs.
  • You will closely interact with both device physicists and designers and process integration engineers for device development, as well as biophysics and biochemistry researchers for molecular assay development.
  • You will carry out your work in imec s life lab, where you will work together with an international, multidisciplinary team.
  • You will need to participate in regular project and team meetings.
