Oxford Nanopore Technologies is developing a revolutionary technology for direct, electrical detection and analysis of single molecules. The platform is designed to offer substantial benefits in a variety of applications. Our lead application is DNA sequencing, but the platform is also adaptable for protein analysis for diagnostics and drug development, and identification of a range of other molecules for security & defense and environmental monitoring. The technology is modular and highly scalable, driven by electronics rather than optics.
Oxford Nanopore Technologies is seeking a nanofabrication expert to join the solid-state nanopore research group, based in Cambridge, MA. Candidates should have particular expertise in the hands-on design and fabrication of micro- or nano-scale sensors.
The role will involve the fabrication and refinement of the company’s existing research-phase solid-state nanopore sensor chips. As these fabrication processes mature, the role will also involve transitioning them to internal technicians and external contractors. The nanofabrication expert will also play a key role in the sensor design team, working with a device physics expert to develop next generation sensors.
The role will require working closely with the measurement team to identify and solve problems and improve performance. A willingness to build an understanding of how the fabricated devices operate in practice is essential.
