The Photonics Packaging Group at the Tyndall Institute invites applications for an exciting position as Senior Researcher in Biomedical Packaging. The position takes responsibility for overseeing and implementing research activities across a range of biomedical research projects. This includes the design, prototyping and testing of medical devices and sensors using photonics. Much of this research in performed in collaboration with national and international research partners, both academic and industry partners.
- Managing biomedical based research projects, in terms of initial project scoping and definition, project implementation and completion. This will include managing and supporting other (e.g. early career) researchers in the group to ensure they complete critical project tasks.
- Managing the design of biomedical demonstrators using design software such as optical design (e.g. Zemax) and mechanical design (e.g. Solidworks).
- Implementation of project designs using the advanced packaging and assembly equipment within the Photonic Packaging Group’s facilities at Tyndall.
- Support testing of biomedical demonstrators, including pre-testing prior to clinical trials by research partners.
- Preparation of technical reports for internal and external stakeholders (e.g. funding agencies).
- Support project dissemination and group outreach activities.
- Ensure all activities are compliant with the Tyndall Quality Management system.
- Ensure all activities are compliant with the required Health and Safety standards.
- Carry out any additional duties as may reasonably be required within the general scope and level of the post.
- PhD qualified with typically 5 years academic and/or industrial experience.
- Experience in photonic and electronic packaging.
- Ability to take photonic concepts from initial design through to full prototypes.
- Experience in the design of integrated photonic devices and packages, including optical and electrical design.
- Experience designing and developing photonic-based biomedical devices, especially in a research environment. This can include the development of photonic-based medical devices, bio-sensors or medical instruments.
- Track record of managing academic and/or industry research projects.
- Experience managing and supporting early career researchers and students.
- Experience presenting your research to a large technical audience.
- Excellent communication and technical report writing skills.
