Arizona State University's Biodesign Institute is looking for you to fill a key need to expand the pace and scope of electrical measurements in a research project aimed at developing single-molecule electronic sequencing of DNA. As the Research Technologist, you will set up, operate, and maintain a semi-automated probe station for characterization of nanofabricated wafers of experimental solid-state devices. You will also run experiments using bioelectronic devices, requiring wire bonding, microfluidics, low-noise measurements and wet-chemistry. Under the direction of, and with training by, members of the scientific team, you will develop procedures to enable high-throughput measurements of electronic signals collected from single molecules, operating custom electronics, and a high-throughput analog-to-digital data acquisition system.
We are looking for you to fill either an Assistant, Associate, or full Research Technologist role, but are willing to hire as a Research Specialist or Research Specialist Sr. if your experience better aligns with the qualification of the Research Specialist job family.
We will begin reviewing applications March 4, 2021 and will continue to review incoming applications on a biweekly basis until the position is filled.
As a Research Technologist, you will:
