The team welcomes strong candidates at postdoctoral, graduate, and undergraduate levels. In January every year, we recruit new graduate students who start their program in Fall. Postdoc openings are dependent on potentially positive funding decisions we receive every April and October. You will receive a reply if your background is a fit with our projects.

To apply for a postdoctoral associate position (1. MEMS/microfluidics; 2. computer vision and control systems for micro-nano scale automation).

  1. MEMS/microfluidics: Strong experience in device design, microfabrication, and experimentation with cells; Strong skills in sensor development.
  2. Robotics/Mechatronics: Strong experience in computer vision (real-time image processing) and control systems; Strong software deveopment skills; Strong circuit development skills.
