The Institute of Microengineering in the School of Engineering is soliciting applications for a faculty position at the level of tenure track Assistant Professor in Integrated Transducers.

We seek top-level applicants with research interests in the broad area of integrated and miniaturized transducers, including both theoretical and experimental aspects.

Particular topics of interest include the transducer design, its micro / nano-fabrication and integration (mechanical, optical, biochemical, magnetic) with the electronics towards scalable (possibly wearable and implantable) smart transducer systems.
