Current Openings

Biomedical Engineer I

Innovative Surface Technologies, Inc. (ISurTec) is looking for a highly motivated Biomedical Engineer I. This position will perform next-generation technology development in biomaterial coatings in our Research & Development Department. The coatings will utilize novel immobilization strategies and/or have novel applications in medical device, cell culture, tissue engineering, and diagnostics.

ISurTec develops coatings to control protein and cell adhesion and control friction and wettability on surfaces, allowing devices to gain and retain their functions longer. For example, when a medical device enters the body, a cascade of biological actions occurs at the surface. Our medical device coating products control the surface properties to minimize harm to the body and to the medical device from those biological interactions. In addition, we develop coatings for diagnostics, research and cell therapeutics production.


  • Conduct hands-on research developing, applying, and testing coatings for biomedical applications in medical device and cell culture
  • Characterization of biological responses to coatings
  • Develop automated or semiautomated methods to apply coatings to devices, tissue engineering scaffolds, and substrates
  • Assist with technical writing including grant applications, intellectual property, and documentation of research
  • Assist with technology development, play a lead role in development of pilot scale production methods, and can creatively develop novel technologies from the ground up.
