Characterize the system's fluidic and mass transport properties using experiments and simulations
Demonstrate the ability of the established system in performing biochemical reactions
Communicate the results clearly to the team in weekly meetings and group presentations
Compose high-quality documentation and SOPs for the developed system

What You Will Need
Current BS, MS, or Ph.D. students in mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, or a related field, with an emphasis on fluidic/microfluidic systems building and testing (previous industry internship experience is a plus)
Strong understanding of the fundamentals of mass transport phenomena, including convection, diffusion, reaction, and their interactions
Demonstrated ability to build an automated fluidic system using hardware and software skills (flowcell experience is a plus)
Experience with fluorescence microscopy and image analysis (experience in flow analysis using fluorescent dye or particles is ideal)
Basic Programming skills (e.g., Java, Python, OpenCV, C, C++); experience in hardware control using APIs is a plus
Experience in using simulation software, such as COMSOL, to understand flow and mass transport in a fluidic system
Basic skills in CAD drawing (e.g., SolidWorks) and 3D printing
