Job Description

POSTDOCTORAL ASSOCIATE, WIRELESS BIOMEDICAL SENSING AND ANTENNAE, Program in Media Arts and Sciences, 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.
