ELECTRONICS ENGINEER/PROGRAM MANAGER

ELECTRONICS ENGINEER/PROGRAM MANAGER

Army Research Office

Research Triangle Park, NC, United States

The Electronics Division of the Army Research Office
(ARO) in Research Triangle Park, NC, is actively looking to fill a positon of
Electronics Engineer/Program Manager to lead an innovative, high pay-off, basic
research program in BioTronics (a new area of bio-electronics research that
focuses on electrical, electronic, and vibrational interactions with the
biological processes within a single cell and between organelles).

The ideal candidate would have a Ph.D. in electronics,
electrical engineering, biology, or similar scientific discipline, and have
direct research experience in electrical engineering and/or cellular /
sub-cellular phenomena and processes. The applicant should have technical
expertise in the areas of discovery and manipulation of phenomena at the
convergence of many types of energies (e.g., electrostatic, mechanical, and
chemical terms), and at the intersection of electronics and biology broadly. Highly
Desired: expertise in unique control and experimentation methodologies that are
orthogonal to existing biochemical or genetic approaches, the dynamics of
charged and polarized cellular components, and understanding and control of
inter- and intra-cellular phenomena at the micro- and nano-scale. The
individual must be an effective communicator, able to provide informed advice; adaptable,
and able to collaborate with world class scientists in academia, government,
and industry.

The duties involve identification of new
scientific opportunities (focus areas) that shape basic research investments in
the area of BioTronics, formulation of research programs based on these focus
areas, management of the programs primarily through grants/contracts that
support broad engagement with the extramural research community (e.g. universities)
and transition of that knowledge to the Army. The research breakthroughs
derived as a result of the program manager’s efforts would ultimately lead to
the development and forecast of critical new technologies and future capabilities
for the Army. The program manager will be expected to maintain on-going
awareness of recent developments in the field of bio-electronics, as well as conduct workshops and studies to identify new emerging opportunities for
future investments.
