Software Engineer

Company Name:
MIT Lincoln Laboratory
Job Title: Software Engineer
Requisition Number: 5708
State: Massachusetts
City: Lexington
Description: The Bioengineering Systems and Technologies Group seeks to improve the performance of human-centered missions through prevention of injury and disease, improving sensing and identification of people and their environment, and speeding rehabilitation and recovery. This is accomplished through four broad technical areas: biomedical research, synthetic biology, bioinformatics and biometrics and forensics. Biomedical research includes advanced sensing, algorithms, modeling, prototyping and field testing of technologies to diagnose disease, predict outcomes, avoid injuries, and monitor and enhance human performance. The synthetic biology research is developing tools and techniques that will greatly speed the design, evaluation and assessment of genome-wide engineering approaches through highly integrated microfluidic devices. Bioinformatics is applied across the group to uncover signatures in high throughput genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic data sets. Biometrics and forensics research is developing technologies and systems for human identification, including rapid DNA analysis, standoff biometric sensing, scientific validation of forensic techniques, and integrated architecture analyses. This highly interdisciplinary group draws on skills from biology, biochemistry, biosignal processing, engineering, computer science, physics, and medical research areas. Primary government sponsors are in the Departments of Defense, Homeland Security and Justice, as well as the National Institutes of Health.
The Bioengineering Systems and Technology group works on a wide range of topics including numerous biological and medical applications. The group is in search of a creative individual to support the design, implementation, and testing of software for novel physiological sensors and systems. Target platforms include embedded systems, Windows, and Android.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
