General Electric Research Engineer - Microsystems in Niskayuna, New York

Job Description Summary

The Microsystems team at GE Research is looking for candidates who are interested in the research and development of gas, biological, and physical sensor systems and integration of these sensors into industrial and consumer products. As a Research Engineer - Microsystems you will be working closely with a highly experienced multidisciplinary team to continue the development of sensing technologies for our wide range of customers. The primary focus of this position will be the design and testing of sensor subsystems such as (i) transducers, (ii) signal interrogators, and (iii) data analytics and applications of these sensor subsystems to deliver new performance characteristics in gas, biological, and physical sensor systems.

Job Description

Roles and Responsibilities

As a Research Engineer - Microsystems you will:

  • Design innovative approaches in transducers, signal interrogators, and data analytics for gas, biological, and physical sensors

  • Work with a multidisciplinary team of Scientists, Engineers, and Technicians creating new state of the art in Sensor Microsystems for low Size Weight and Power (SWaP) solutions

  • Communicate status updates with key stake holders within and outside GE Research

  • Collaborate with industrial, academic, and Governmental partners on system level sensing solutions

  • Work directly with customers to understand their needs and identify future opportunities

  • Build Sensor Microsystem solutions specific to our customer needs

  • Contribute to all aspects of industrial sensor microsystems research – including fundamental innovations, requirements definition, project planning, specifications, system design, and experimental validation

  • Identify, conduct, and interpret critical experiments to validate sensor microsystems concepts and present research findings to senior management

  • Develop, write, and present research plans and proposals internal to GE and to outside agencies and collaborators as appropriate

  • Present research results at conferences and publish in leading journals

  • Build and maintain a technical network including universities and government agencies

Required Qualifications

  • PhD degree in a relevant Engineering discipline or MS degree in a relevant Engineering Discipline with a minimum of 3 years of related experience in Sensor Microsystems

  • Demonstrated experience designing and testing gas, biological, or/and physical sensor structures and devices

  • Demonstrated ability to design key sensing components such as transducers and to combine them with needed sensing materials and signal interrogators or to apply direct spectroscopic measurements

  • Demonstrated experience in data analytics – univariate and multivariate – for sensor applications

  • Legal authorization to work in the U.S. is required. We will not sponsor individuals at the Masters level for employment visas, now or in the future, for this job opening.

  • Because of the specific categories of data handled by GE Research and the structure of our work environment, we are unable to accommodate employment of persons while they are considered nationals of embargoed countries subject to restriction under the US Export Administration Regulations (EAR), 15 CFR Section 746 et seq.

  • Must be willing to work out of an office located in Niskayuna, NY.

  • Must be 18 years or older.

  • You must submit your application for employment on the careers page at ($165509/ to be considered.

Desired Characteristics

  • Demonstrated design of sensors based on different transduction principles such as electrical, optical, mechanical, thermal

  • Demonstrated design of wired and wireless sensors

  • Demonstrated understanding of synergism between sensor design and associated data analytics (machine learning) of sensor outputs

  • Familiarization of manufacturing principles of designed sensor systems

  • Demonstrated ability to work in sensors laboratories and conduct critical experiments

  • Demonstrated ability to develop experimental methods for testing sensor system components and whole system

  • Demonstrated ability to work as part of an interdisciplinary team

  • Excellent presentation, speaking, organizational, and problem-solving skills, with attention to detail
