Microfluidics Designer Life Science Technologies

You will work on next-generation technologies for diagnostics.

What you will do

  • You will design novel microfluidic devices for life sciences applications. This includes: perform simulation, modeling and analytical evaluation of device performance using tools such as COMSOL, ANSYS, Matlab or other equivalent software packages. You also provide input for integration, system, assay and manufacturing teams. You adapt designs based on overall system constraints. You evaluate device robustness and design fault-tolerant microfluidic systems.
  • Manage time effectively is important: you work according to aggressive project schedules. You respect the agreed customer timelines and report on progress. You quickly adapt to new project requirements.
  • You will work closely with an interdisciplinary team of engineers and biologists.
