A Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Mayo Clinic is a temporary position intended to provide training and education in research. Individuals will train in the research program of a Mayo Clinic principal investigator.
This laboratory focuses on developing novel microfluidic platforms and point-of-care devices for early diagnosis and therapeutic monitoring. Our vision is to integrate multiple technological paradigms (microfluidics, micro-sensors, optics etc.) and integrate with personal electronics, to bring early diagnosis and therapeutic response monitoring to bedsides and homes. Please find the PI Dr. Nicolas Chia's introduction from this link: https://www.mayo.edu/research/faculty/chia-nicholas-ph-d/bio-20087464?_ga=2.123084555.1018486890.1601942247-1969694478.1601942247
The role of the trainee will be to develop a digital microfluidic platform for 1) profiling immune markers for the frequent monitoring of patients' immune responses during therapies, and 2) for the rapid preparation of clinical sample for bacterial infection detection. The position is better suited for a trainee with earned doctorate degree in engineering and science (Biomedical, Chemical, Electrical, Mechanical Engineering, Biochemistry or equivalent). Candidates with experiences in developing microfluidic immunoassays, microfluidic sample preparation, optical integration are encouraged to apply by sending their CV through BMES jobboard or at the link below:
