Multiple positions available for students interested in MS/PhD as well as postdoc position in the new Nano-Cybernetic Biotrek (NCB) (http://www.mit.edu/~profsarkar/) research lab at MIT. NCB aims to fuse nanoelectronics, applied physics, and biology with two major research directions:
• develop novel nanoelectronic devices (such as Quantum Devices, Spintronics, Neuromorphic) employing ingenious device physics and smart nano-materials for achieving extreme energy efficiency and scalability;
• merge such next generation technologies with living-matter creating unique nanomachine-bio hybrid systems, with remote control and wireless communication abilities to achieve unprecedented possibilities for probing/sensing and modulating (for therapeutics) our brain and body.
1> OPENINGS FOR GRAD STUDENTS (deadline Dec 1st)
NCB is seeking students with strong background in either of the following:
• Electromagnetism, Antennae, RFID, wireless sensing, RF engineering, magnetic resonance
• magnetic materials and devices, magnetics, Spintronics
• Nanoelectronics, Electronic devices, solid state physics, electronic circuits, Neuromorphic devices
2> OPENING FOR POSTDOC IN WIRELESS SENSING
NCB has opening for postdoc in wireless sensing of chemical and biological signals. The postdoc will conduct research to design and develop wireless sensing technologies, transmitter/receiver systems, RF circuit, implantable and wearable antennae for diverse applications in wireless energy harvesting, sensing, magnetic resonance imaging and biomedical applications. Strong background in electromagnetism, antenna design and RF engineering is required.
