Postdoctoral Research Associate - Panat Lab - Mechanical Engineering
Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
 
 
Apply
 
Date Posted 01/06/2022
Category
Postdoctoral-Engineering
Employment Type FullTime
Application Deadline Open until filled
 
 
 
 
 

In Carnegie Mellon University's Department of Mechanical Engineering (MechE), faculty members, researchers, and students are revolutionizing focus areas in advanced manufacturing, bioengineering, computational engineering, energy and the environment, product design, and robotics. In addition, they are using their expertise in interdisciplinary research centers across the university.

We are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate to join the Rahul Panat Lab at Mechanical Engineering. In this role, you will carry out advanced independent and/or directed research to achieve the objectives of the research project. This position will require an in depth knowledge of a specialized field, process, subject area and may involve coordinating and implementing complex research plans, the development of methods of research, testing and data collection, analysis and evaluation, and writing reports which contain descriptive, analytical and evaluative content. You will acquire the professional skills needed to pursue a career path of your choosing.

The postdoctoral research associate will work on an NIH sponsored project in the Panat lab. The project involves the use of Aerosol Jet 3D printing to build the next generation electrical and electrochemical sensors. You will carry out research in the area of metal nanoparticle and polymer printing to develop neural probes and will collaborate with the Yttri lab at CMU as necessary to test the electrical sensors. Familiarity with sensors is essential and characterization tools such as SEM, FIB, and TEM is helpful. Most importantly, you should have strong passion to explore new engineering problems and their scientific solutions.

The Panat lab works on micro-scale additive manufacturing and its applications to biomedical devices and energy materials. It works on high performance biosensors, biomonitoring devices, and brain-computer interfaces. The process development side focuses on using fundamentals of mechanics to enable new manufacturing processes that lead to structures with enhanced functionality. The application side focuses on bringing the advances in microfabrication to the field of biomedical engineering in order to create devices that can benefit the public health. He recently developed the fastest known COVID-19 antibody test with high sensitivity due to a unique, 3D printing technology and an electrochemical reaction.

Core responsibilities include:

  • Strong aptitude and demonstrated accomplishment in micro or nanoscale manufacturing research and/or biomedical device research. An understanding of structure-property relations for metallic materials

  • Strong publication record in relevant journals and excellent verbal and written English communication skills along with an ability to work effectively with others

  • Ability to work well in a self-paced, independent manner, while working well in cooperation with team members and partners and must be committed to meeting research project deadlines

  • Responsible for conducting research on nanoparticle and polymer 3D printing of electrical and electrochemical sensors

  • Carry out fabrication, modeling, and testing of the devices

  • Explore the relationship between manufacturing, device microstructure, and the device mechanical, electrical/electrochemical, and optical properties, and its performance in biological environments

  • Supervise and evaluate technical work of others in the group such as graduate students

  • Prepare verbal presentations and manuscripts

  • Other duties as assigned

You should have strong attention to detail, excellent customer service, a team-oriented approach. Resourcefulness, excellence, and passion are vital qualities within Mechanical Engineering. Inclusion, collaboration and cultural sensitivity are valued proficiencies at CMU. Therefore, we are in search of a team member who is able to optimally interact with a varied population of internal and external partners at a high level of integrity. We are looking for someone who shares our values and who will support the mission of the university through their work.

Qualifications:

  • Doctorate degree required in mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, nanotechnology, chemical engineering, or physics

  • Experience in mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, and nanotechnology
