Tailor for Wearable Electronics

The Job

Applications are invited for a part time position (16h/week) at the Center for Advanced Imaging Innovation and Research (CAI2R) operated by NYU School of Medicine at NYU Langone Health. The successful candidate will join a multidisciplinary team of researchers and physicians on an NIH-funded project to develop wearable detector electronics. The candidate will work in with the engineering team in our radiofrequency electronics lab to create gloves and other garments with embedded electronics. Salary is commensurate with experience. A one-year time commitment is preferred, but project-based contracts are also possible.

Expected Qualifications

The position is open to candidates with experience crafting customized garments and gloves in particular. Candidates with knowledge of different materials and designs for specialized applications such as medical or tactical garments are strongly encouraged to apply.
