Located outside of Dallas, TX, this incredibly
advanced, privately-funded, high-technology company
doing molecular nanotechnology is seeking a Staff
Mechanical Engineer with 5+ years experience in
product development role.
This company's mission is to be the industry leader in
adaptable, affordable, molecularly precise
manufacturing at an incredibly small scale, otherwise
known as "Molecular Construction". While their
ultimate goal is to produce a molecular assembler
capable of creating a variety of materials using
precise atomic and molecular placement, the path to
building an assembler will afford them the opportunity
to produce an array of MEMS-, subMEMS-, and nanoscale
devices for a variety of industries.
To most efficiently approach a solution, the company
is divided into 3 groups:
* the "bottom-up" lab, composed of molecular chemists
trying to get atoms to bind to each other;
* the "top-down" lab, dedicated to using
microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) as the basic
cogs and wheels of the nano-assembler;
* the "advanced systems" group, dedicated to finding
the properties of individual atoms.
This is necessary so that the company will be able to
tell if it's using the right building blocks when it
does try to build something. Currently, the basic raw
materials the company is using are carbon nanotubes.
These are sheets of hexagonal atoms wrapped into the
shape of a cylinder. They have a diameter of
approximately 1/10,000 the size of a human hair, are
capable of carrying a very high current, and are about
100 times stronger than steel. They are also quite
expensive (costing around $1,000 per gram) and are
produced by universities and research institutions.
The company is making a significant investment in MEMS
as an enabling technology for the top-down approach to
They are seeking a Staff Mechanical Engineer.
* Diverse design and applications background,
preferably in Meso/Micro-scale Part Design
* Familiar with design for Swiss-machine tools, EDM,
with good knowledge of best domestic sources for niche
meso-scale machining
* Basic programming abilities (ideally motion control
implementation, Labview etc.)
* Knowledge of controls-systems theory, stage/motion
control dynamics for high-precision applications
* Good general knowledge of actuator design and sensor
* Very quick on mechanical engineering fundamentals,
design for machine shop operations, injection molding
* Good CAD skills (preferably 3D CAD software)
* Will have worked on customer-driven projects and
will have demonstrated quick-cycle-time in engineering
* Products that were adopted into the field or by the
customer/end-user are of particular importance
* BSME, MSME preferred, 5+ years experience in product
development role
The company offers excellent pay, benefits, stock
options, flexible scheduling and a family friendly
