Sensor Engineer – part time or full time - New York University School of Medicine
November 8, 2019
New York, United States of America
Job Type


Our lab is integrating new sensors into the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data stream to enable flexible and self-navigating medical imaging protocols. This multi-sensor strategy will utilize data sampled at high rates to monitor body motion and vital signals to augment traditional MRI data, which can suffer from poor temporal resolution. Engineers will have the opportunity to explore and build sensor arrays using off-the-shelf devices (i.e. optical, infrared, ultrasonic, radar, and radiofrequency) that are controlled with prototyping platforms such as Arduino in a unique and dedicated test bay. Hardware development will be followed by machine learning based approaches to exploit the richness of the multi-parametric data to synthesize artifact-free images with unprecedented temporal resolution.

Desired qualifications for this position include

  • Bachelors or Masters degree in electrical engineering, computer science, signal communications, or related fields within biomedical engineering
  • Background in sensors, electronics, communication, and/or electromagnetic interference
  • Strong programming skills for hardware automation and data acquisition (Python, MATLAB, or other scripting languages)
  • Interest in future technology scoping and proof-of-concept investigations
  • Hands-on experience with lab (oscilloscope, spectrum analyzer, etc.) and fabrication (3D modeling, circuit board design, etc.) equipment
  • Self motivated, independent thinker with good problem solving ability
