Open Position with Alcorix:
Research Scientist – Microfluidics and Biosensors


Alcorix Co. is a friendly team of scientists that enjoys dreaming up innovative solutions in the field of X-ray optics and nanofabrication, then turning those ideas into reality using our expertise in various fields and techniques of nanomanufacturing. The primary projects this candidate will be working on are a fluid cell for high-pressure environments for X-ray and e-beam analyses, and a brain implant probe for neurotransmitter detection, with electrochemical and microfluidic capabilities. These devices are expected to enable major discoveries in nanoscience and brain physiology, by allowing scientists to explore nanoscale material properties and processes, as well as advance biology and medicine. The applicant will be expected to contribute to these projects in as many of the following capacities as possible:

(1) Micro-/Nanofabrication of MEMS devices
(2) Microfluidics and micromechanics of membranes
(3) Electrochemistry
(4) Writing scientific publications and project reports
(5) Device testing in microfluidic membrane bulging experiments

In addition to contributing to the current prototypes development, the candidate will have the opportunity to lead his or her own projects, interact with customers in cutting-edge fields and get exposed to a variety of applications.

Desired Knowledge:

We are looking for a talented scientist with strong interpersonal skills and a passion for scientific discovery. The candidate should have a PhD in a relevant field such as physics, materials science, chemistry, mechanics, or engineering. MS level studies with relevant experience will also be considered. Additionally, the candidate should be self-motivated and able to work with minimal supervision if necessary. Specific skills in one or both of the following categories would be beneficial:

Microfabrication: Experience in a cleanroom environment using tools such as SEM, FIB, ALD, chemical etching, RIE, lithography, etc.

Simulation: Setting up and doing measurements on microfluidic and micromechanical devices

The candidates are supposed to grow steadily in experience and get promoted, while being supported to acquire and enhance their skills by working with experts in the fields. The company encourages the desire for acquiring entrepreneurship skills though programs such as iCorp and others.
