Seeking a highly talented engineer to develop innovative solutions that address current and future health care needs in the area of infectious disease diagnostics. The associate will work as a member of a multidisciplinary team that is developing technologies to address the global infectious disease diagnostics market. The associate will develop, build and test microfluidic devices and related components for biological sample purification. The associate will evaluate designs for manufacturability and contribute to the transition from prototype to validation devices and assembly procedures. Responsibilities will also include development of test methods and fixtures to characterize systems to determine release criteria and support validation. This position is a one year temporary position.
The candidate will have an advanced set of skills and knowledge in device design for manufacturability, fabrication, and characterization, and should be able to plan and conduct scientific experiments and effectively analyze, interpret, and present experimental results with minimal oversight. The candidate should also be able to adapt to changing requirements that can arise in a dynamic work environment and will be expected to contribute intellectually in areas not directly related to his or her field.
