My lab works on the principle of a happy living, hard work, respect to elders, and contribution to the society and the country. Students interested in pursuing Ph.D. and M.Tech./M.E. projects in the area of microengineering, biomedical engineering, and electronic systems engineering are welcomed to contact me via E-mail. Please look at the IISc admission website for determining your eligibility.

Ph.D. Positions:

DESE is looking for bright candidates to join the Ph.D. program.

Microsystems, Sensors, and Biomedical Devices: 

The use of micro-and nanotechnology for biomedical applications is an upcoming research area with a potential for prognosis and early diagnosis of several diseases. Cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Amongst cancers, Breast and Cervical Cancer are the most common types of cancer in women. Early diagnosis, routine monitoring, and tracking of disease progression and drug response are the extremely important. We seek to understand and exploit novel ways of fabricating microengineering devices using glass, silicon, polymers and integrate with unusual classes of micro/nanomaterials for early diagnosis of cancer, disease progression, and evaluating the drug response. We are working on integrating biology/medicine with microtechnology, nanotechnology and additive manufacturing to develop innovative tools that can be used to solve unmet clinical problems. We are also working on developing smart sensors and technologies for biomedical robotics with an emphasis on developing smart catheters. Our efforts are multidisciplinary and combine expertise from different fields of technical study.


Basic understanding of microfabrication technology and aptitude towards design, simulation, and fabrication of micro-engineered devices for biomedical applications. Experience in Class 1000/10000 clean room and knowledge of design tools like SolidWorks, Catia, or Pro E, and an understanding of machine learning algorithms and techniques will be an advantage. A strong knowledge of programming languages is advantageous.

Current Openings:

Want to be a part of an exciting journey in Advanced Healthcare Technologies? Join us!

Two research staff positions (Mechatronics Engineer and Electronics Engineer) are available in the Biomedical and Electronic Engineering Systems Lab at the Department of Electronic Systems Engineering, Indian Institute of Science.

Mechatronics Engineer: Candidate should have experience in 3D modelling software such as SolidWorks/NXCAD/Fusion360 and working on projects involving prototype development boards such as Arduino/ESP32/STM, mechatronic system fabrication, and additive manufacturing.

Electronics Engineer: Candidate should have a strong background in firmware development for embedded systems and electronic circuit design and PCB design using Altium/Eagle/EasyEDA. Prior experience in working on projects involving prototype development boards such as Arduino/ESP32/STM will be an added advantage. 

Although professional working experience is not mandatory, candidates with a strong background demonstrated through prior project experience would be a given priority. 

The position provides an excellent working environment with leading scientists/clinicians in the country and an opportunity to work on cutting-edge healthcare technologies. Additionally, we train the project staff to work on cutting-edge technologies and provide them with a platform to invent and co-author peer-reviewed journal publications.

Salaries will be as per institute norms and include house rent allowance.

Application Deadline: May 10, 2023.

Screening of the applications will start on May 11, 2023.
