Biochip Design Engineer: Analog Devices – Boston, MA

For the past 50 years, Analog Devices has been inventing innovative technologies that transform lives.   Get hands-on experience working with the brightest minds to solve complex problems that matter: from autonomous vehicles, drones, and factories to augmented reality to remote healthcare.  Enjoy a culture that values aligned goals, balanced work-life priorities, continuous learning throughout your career, and shared rewards.  At ADI, we invest in you and succeed together because we believe that happy, healthy, intellectually-challenged people drive our growth and market leadership.

ADI helps customers bridge the physical and digital worlds with unmatched technologies that solve real-life problems and make the world smarter, healthier, greener, and safer.  With over $5 billion in revenue, ADI specializes in high-performance analog, mixed-signal, power, and digital signal processing (DSP) integrated circuits that sense, measure, interpret, connect, power, secure and transform how the world experiences the world around them.

The Analog Garage mission is to identify and develop new technologies, capabilities, and business models critical to Analog Device’s future success.

In this role, you will develop microsystem and microfluidic chip elements for our next generation biochip platform.  You will apply your expertise in multi-physics design and simulation to develop innovative solutions to customer challenges in fluidic, optical, thermal, and electrical domains.  You will be responsible for taking your design from concept to prototype, and finally to high-volume manufacturing.


  • Finalize biochip design specifications by closely working with a highly skilled multidisciplinary team. Disciplines include biology, chemistry, packaging, analog, and digital electronics
  • Based on your multi-physics simulations, work with our biotech partners to make design trade-offs and ultimately achieve specification sign-off
  • Translate our biotech partner’s biochip requirements into a manufacturable physical design
  • With our test and lab staff, verify your 1st prototypes meet design specification and develop test hardware and software to test finished parts
  • Propose, evaluate, and complete purchase agreement for multi-physics simulation design suite
  • Work with manufacturing to bring your biochip design into high-volume manufacturing

Qualifications and desired traits:

  • Ph.D. in Biological, Biomedical, Mechanical, Materials, Physics or related engineering disciplines
  • Hands-on design and simulation experience with multi-physics software such as COMSOL; further experience with 3D CAD tools such as SolidWorks or AutoCAD an asset
  • Strong hands-on technical skills, but also maintains a research orientation (interested to keep up with scientific and industrial literature)
  • Background in molecular biology, microbiology, or a related discipline with previous wet-lab experience would be considered an asset, but not necessarily required

Education Level: Doctorate Degree
Travel Required: No
