Neuralink is looking for Materials Engineer Intern.


The Materials Intern will focus on testing materials using a range of characterization and accelerated aging techniques to improve device reliability and longevity. You will manage and execute experiments using characterization and testing platforms to determine the root-cause failure modes of medical devices. This will involve instruments such as dynamic mechanical analyzers, electrochemical probe stations, etc. You will also be involved with various cross-team efforts to build high-throughput testing equipment for evaluating yield and longevity. For example, use-case accelerated aging testing, mechanical fatigue, etc.

You will be contributing to the development of high density, reliable neural interfaces that are at the ground level of brain-computer-interfaces. This is a unique opportunity to work closely in a multi-disciplinary team and in an environment where you have direct impact on the next-gen product.

Job Requirements

  • Experience with the standard mechanical testing equipment (tensile tester, DMA, etc), user interfaces and familiarity with associated test standards (ASTM, etc)
  • Experience with mechanical design (Solidworks, etc)
  • Familiarity with the scientific principles involved in analyzing mechanical tests
  • 2+ years of hands-on experience with mechanical testing.

Preferred qualifications:

  • Experience with DMA, TMA, and/or other mechanical related testing equipment
  • Experience with instrument operational software in addition to hardware for mechanical testing equipment
  • Familiarity with failure analysis and mechanical modeling methods (i.e. FEA, COMSOL)
  • Experience troubleshooting lab instrumentation for mechanical, electrochemical analysis.
