Position: Nanofabrication Engineer, Two Pore Guys, Inc., Santa Cruz, CA.

Description: The candidate will work in a team to design and produce solid-state nanopore devices, from the initial development of prototypes, to high-volume production. Auxiliary tasks include designing and running biomolecule translocation experiments and analyzing data. The successful candidate has an intuitive understanding of micro-fluidic design and nanofabrication processes, stability, signal-to-noise ratio, and chemical compatibility.
Responsibilities for this position include:

  • Design, implement and validate existing and new architectures of nanopore devices.
  • Develop nanopore production processes for cleaning, bonding, assembly/alignment, package sealing and test.
  • Identifies external foundries for fabrication.
  • Research design techniques through technical publications and seminars.

Qualifications:

  • Ph. D in Physics or Electrical Engineering, OR BS with five years of working experience, OR MS with two years of working experience.
  • Experience in designing and running nanopore experiments.
  • Experience in nanofabrication, including LPCVD, PECVD, photolithography, dry and wet etching, ellipsometry, profilometry, and dicing saw.
  • Experience in material characterization techniques, including FIB, TEM, and SEM.
  • Experience in silicon micro-machining, and wafer scale processing and assembly technology.
  • Experience in micro-fluidic design using solidworks or similar software.

Position: Program Manager, Education and Outreach, National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure, Stanford University

Stanford’s shared nanofacilities offer a comprehensive array of advanced nanofabrication and nanocharacterization tools.  Over 1,000 researchers make use of the shared facilities each year in order to further their research programs.  The NNCI Site at Stanford University is a consortium of shared facilities and is supported by the NSF under the (NNCI) program.  The goal of the NNCI Site @ Stanford University is to provide open, cost-effective access to state-of-the-art nanofabrication and nanocharacterization facilities for scientists and engineers from academia, small and large companies, and government laboratories.

The Program Manager will work to develop, implement and administer educational and outreach programs in support of the NNCI Site.  Many of the programs focus on research-level education and extend much beyond K-12 focus.  The Program Manager will work with the faculty, staff, students and external researchers to identify the set of knowledge and operating procedures that users must acquire to become proficient users of nanofabrication and nanocharacterization tools at the NNCI Site at Stanford and find or create appropriate videos, simulations, and other online resources. Other programs focus on technical notes, process recipes and workshops for teachers and other audiences. The Program Manager reports to the Associate Director of the Stanford Nano Shared Facilities.

The Research and Development Scientist and Engineer (RDSE) will be the primary technical liaison to a growing external user base.  As a representative of the NNCI Site @ Stanford to external users, he/she will advise external users on feasibility of capabilities, provide background information about a nanofabrication or nanocharacterization techniques, explain how to operate a particular instrument, or run samples and processes for researchers.  The RDSE will be responsible for the external user experience of the NNCI Site @ Stanford and will work with local staff and faculty in order to grow the external user base. The RDSE reports to the Associate Director of the Stanford Nano Shared Facilities and works closely with faculty, staff, students and external researchers.
