Draper Laboratory is adding four new jobs to its Tampa lab at the University of South Florida.

The new positions are for two principal investigators (optical/imaging), a mechanical engineer and an electrical engineer.

The principal investigators will be responsible for leading a research program on developing photonics, plasmonics and imaging technology for medical and biological applications.

Applicants interested in the principal investigator position should have a doctorate in electrical or mechanical engineering, physics, materials science or a similar field.

They should also have experience in photonics, general optics and metamaterials applied to medical and biological problems. The applicant must also be familiar with the micro-electro-mechanical systems process and optics and photonics basics. 

Also required for the principal investigator position is seven to 10 years of experience.

Applicants for the principal investigator are required to have strong written, oral and interpersonal skills, be able to work in a team and be flexible to changing technologies and priorities.

Having experiences with grantsmanship is also a plus.

The mechanical engineer position and the electrical engineer position involve design, analysis and testing of biochemical systems and devices.

To apply for the mechanical engineer position, applicants must have a BS degree in mechanical engineering or engineering mechanics and have more than three years of relevant work experience.

Applicants must have a BS degree in electrical engineering and have more than three years work experience for the electrical engineering position.

Draper Laboratory expanded to Tampa in November 2008 and now has 15 employees. Plans call for a total of 30 employees by next year working at the USF campus in Tampa.
