Citys（岗位城市）: Redmond, WA
We are looking for a skilled and motivated Human Factors Research Scientist to join our multidisciplinary research team, whose mission is to advance the state of wearable interaction devices. We are specifically looking for a candidate with experience guiding R&D projects towards productization and who can work with a team of other researchers in a wide range of fields including haptics, psychophysics, soft robotics, textiles, elastomers, and more! More broadly, the chosen candidate will work with a diverse and highly interdisciplinary team of researchers and engineers and will have access to cutting edge technology, resources, and testing facilities.
Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering, Human Factors, Applied Psychology, other related technical field or equivalent experience.
5+ years of cross-functional research or product development experience with demonstration of enabling novel technologies.
Experience with creating comfort and wearability assessment infrastructure (tools and methods) to accelerate hardware design space understanding.
Experience with designing research and assessment roadmaps to drive improvements in comfort and wearability.
Identify gaps, develop research plans, and instigate new research projects that define and track the relevant metrics for improving the wearability of smart devices.
Autonomously drive and influence smart device architecture through the creation of research prototypes that demonstrate the tradeoffs between user needs, device wearability, and device performance.
Partner with research, hardware engineering, and design teams to evaluate materials, components, systems, and sub-systems against the requirements for wearable devices.
Experience leading research roadmaps that proactively explore hardware design constraints/requirements.
Experience working on wrist wearables.
Experience collecting and analyzing self-reported, physiological, and behavioral data.
