Bio-MEMS Microfluidics Specialist Lab-on-a-Chip Device Fabrication
An exceptional role for a Bioengineering specialist with particular expertise in microfluidics and MEMS type lab-on-a-chip device fabrication, has arisen at an exciting technology development consultancy based near Cambridge. This is very much a hands-on R&D role and the Bio-MEMS Development Engineer will use their expertise & understanding of cleanroom based MEMS device nano-fabrication to participate in the development of ground-breaking medical devices and similar high-tech applications.
As Bio-MEMS Development Engineer / Bioengineer you will use your expertise in device fabrication methods such as PECVD, RIE/D-RIE, Photolithography, mask design and electroplating to develop concepts, technologies and products for global leaders in the Medical Devices marketplace. You will work on multiple scientific R&D projects alongside senior technical and commercial business colleagues to address client needs, creating bespoke devices through challenging development programmes. Whilst prior experience of Medical Device Development, although preferred, it is not essential -more important is the broad multi-discipline MEMS type device R&D skills and the ability, aptitude and passion to deliver scientific innovation and cutting edge solutions.
To be considered for the role of Development Engineer / Bioengineer you need the following:
A 2.1 (BSc/BEng/MEng/MPhys /MA) in Physics, Biology, Mechanical Engineering, Electronics, Materials Science etc and ideally an MSc, MRes, MPhil, PhD, DPhil or EngD) in Bioengineering / Biomedical Engineering / Biotechnology (or similar) from a leading university
A solid background in MEMS device development and fabrication, materials development and behaviour etc
Experience of applying engineering principles to biological systems.
Familiarity with advanced Cleanroom techniques and H&S procedures.
For senior applicants, some experience in leading projects
