Microfluidics Engineering Intern
The Bosch Research and Technology Center North America with offices in Sunnyvale, California, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Cambridge, Massachusetts is part of the global Bosch Group (www.bosch.com), a company with over 70 billion euro revenue, 400,000 people worldwide, a very diverse product portfolio, and a history of over 125 years. The Research and Technology Center North America (RTC-NA) is committed to providing technologies and system solutions for various Bosch business fields primarily in the areas of Human Machine Interaction (HMI), Robotics, Energy Technologies, Internet Technologies, Circuit Design, Semiconductors and Wireless, and MEMS Advanced Design.
The bioelectronics team works to develop new technologies for the Bosch Healthcare Solutions business unit (www.bosch-healthcare.com). We work on cutting edge technologies in the field of molecular diagnostics and are seeking an engineer/scientist with strong experience in microfluidics to work closely with our team of engineers and scientists in Bioelectronics group to support development of new medical diagnostic platforms. The primary responsibilities will be designing and fabrication of microfluidics prototypes, engineering interfaces between microfluidics and electro-optical measurement setups, and conducting proof-of-principle experiments.
- Currently enrolled as a graduate student (Master's or PhD) in Bioengineering, Biomedical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or related field (Candidates within 1 year after their graduation date will also be considered).
- Must have experience with CAD design (SolidWorks is preferred) and Finite Element Analysis (COMSOL is preferred)
- Must have hands-on experience with prototyping techniques (machining, 3D printing, etc.) and understand requirements for scalable manufacturing processes (injection molding, etc.)
- Must have excellent experimental design, data analysis / visualization, and problem-solving skills
- Must have excellent written and oral communication skills
- Must be a strong team player who can work independently with minimum supervision
- Experience with PCB design for interfacing to electronics is highly desirable
- Experience with low noise electronics is a plus
- Experience in fluorecence microscopy especially for imaging biomolecules (DNA, proteins, ...) is a plus
- Experience in single-molecule sensing or electrophysiology (voltage/curent clamp) is a plus
By choice, we are committed to a diverse workforce - EOE/Protected Veteran/Disabled.
