MIT Lincoln Laboratory Electrical Test and Analysis Engineer in Lexington, Massachusetts

Advanced Materials and Microsystems Group is a multidisciplinary group that works at the convergence of materials science and micro- and nanoscale engineering to develop microsystems with novel functionality. We develop materials, microfabrication processes, and multifunctional microsystems, with the aim to leverage properties at the small scale in everything we do. Our activities range from forming metamaterials and phase-change materials, to integrating optoelectronic devices in unusual form factors such as fibers and fabrics, to developing microfluidic devices based on electrowetting, to creating new materials and new processes for 3D printing. Our application space is equally broad: it encompasses low-cost picosatellites fabricated in a silicon foundry, advanced fibers that can sense and communicate and be woven into clothing, energy-efficient microhydraulic actuators for micro-robotics, optofluidics for enhanced eyewear, and energy storage and energy harvesting components. Our high-impact work is enabled by the Microelectronics Laboratory, the Defense Fabric Discovery Center, and other cleanroom facilities at the Laboratory.

Position Description

The group is seeking a seeking an Electrical Test and Analysis engineer to support the development of specialized silicon CMOS, beyond-CMOS technologies and related microsystems. This individual will be expected to (1) will develop and debug test content, (2) develop data analysis methodologies to determine root cause of failure modes and yield limiters, and (3) will work with a team of process engineers, process integrators, yield and failure analysts to establish future generations of MIT Lincoln Laboratory special-purpose device technologies. In addition to technical skills, the group seeks a well-rounded candidate that has exceptional communication and presentation skills, can work independently, and the ability to be impactful across a wide range of technical challenges in a multidisciplinary environment.


The successful candidate will have many of the following skills or experiences:

  • Thorough understanding of electrical test equipment test automation
