Job Opportunity with the Boston Retinal Implant Project
at the Cornell Nanofabrication Facility, Ithaca, NY
We are seeking a microfabrication engineer to join our growing
interdisciplinary team of clinicians, physiologists, and engineers
working together to develop a visual prosthesis. We hope to aid persons
who are blind with degenerative diseases of the retina, including
age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) and retinitis pigmentosa (RP).
The former is the leading cause of blindness in the developed world,
while the latter is the leading cause of inherited blindness.
Together they affect millions of people worldwide.
The successful candidate will preferably have experience
working in a university-based clean room environment and
have earned at least a Master's degree in a microfabrication-
related field. We are specifically interested in candidates
with expertise in one or more of the following areas:
- Biocompatible packaging methods
- Neural prosthetic devices and systems
- Micropatterning of biological compounds
- All phases of IC design, fabrication, and testing
Candidates must also have experience working effectively in
small group environments and be comfortable working with a
geographically distributed team. The location of the position
is at the Cornell Nanofabrication Facility (CNF) in Ithaca, NY.
The CNF is moving to a state-of-the-art clean room facility
located in Duffield Hall on the Cornell University campus
in Fall, 2003. Ithaca is a small city of approximately 30,000
people located in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York.
It has consistently been ranked as one of the best places to live
in the United States.
Salary will be commensurate with the candidate's experience and
will be administered through the US Veterans Health Administration,
a major supporter of the Project. Candidates must be eligible for
employment by the Federal government, an equal opportunity employer.
The anticipated starting date for this position is in Summer, 2003.
