Mekonos is proud to be a equal opportunity workplace. Please send us your resume to: steven[at]mekonos[dot]com
Nano-fabrication Process Engineer
The Engineer (MS/PhD in electrical/mechanical engineering/materials science/physics) will work to assemble nano-needles onto our actuator chips, manufacture silicon, glass and PDMS based chips, device fabrication recipes for scaling-up purpose as well as their characterisation and metrology at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Stanford Nanofabrication Facility (SNF), Stanford Nano Shared Facilities (SNSF) and/or UC Berkeley Marvell Nanofabrication Lab. You will also need to co-ordinate with cleanroom foundries and their staff to review the design, get additional chips manufactured and so on. You will need to have experience with micro- and nano-fabrication including CVD/PECVD depostion, RIE/ICP etching, ALD deposition, e-beam/photo lithography, scanning electron and/or atomic force microscopy, and other fabrication techniques. In-depth knowledge of wafer-level fab physics, materials, processes, equipment, and test protocols will be an added advantage.
Biochemistry and Cell Biology Scientist
Mekonos is seeking a scientist (MS/PhD in cell biology/molecular biology/biochemistry/biomedical engineering) to use our chips for different cell manipulation experiments. Experience/expertise with primary cell cultures (preferably immune B and T cells), developing cell based assays, targeted genome editing platforms (preferably CRISPR-Car systems), handling single cells, acquiring and analyzing flow cytometry data using packages such as FlowJo, handling statistical and analyses softwares such as Microsoft Excel, R, GraphPad Prism and/or similar software packages would be a requirement. You may also have some experience with preparation of DNA and RNA sequencing libraries, nucleic acid sample quantification methods such as Qubit, qPCR etc., protein and gene expression and operation of lab robotics such as Hamilton, Beckman, Agilent or similar.
Control Systems Engineer
As a CS Engineer (BS/MS/PhD in mechatronics/electrical/computer/mechanical engineering/computer science/robotics), you will create the software interface to connect the microscopic imaging with the chips for seamless integration. Experience/expertise in past robotics projects (micro/macro scale), electromechanical or mechatronic systems, programming skills in C, C++, MATLAB and/or LabView, working on estimation, control, and/or planning algorithms for robotic systems, working with embedded software, accelerometers, gyroscopes, and/or other sensors, working with cameras and computer vision (feature tracking and localization using vision) and working with networking, communications and wireless (e.g. ZigBee, WiFi). You will also need to regularly co-ordinate with the cell biology scientist for implementation of the control software.
All of these positions require critical thinking and problem solving capabilities, outstanding oral and written communication skills, ability to work independently, being flexible and able to respond quickly to changing priorities and communicating results in conferences and peer-reviewed journals.
