Post Doctoral Researcher, Electronic Engineering
Department : Electronic Engineering
Vacancy ID : 017501
Closing Date : 04-Sep-2022
The vacancy is for a one-year postdoctoral position in the area of microfluidics. The postdoc will be leading the building/optimising a microfluidics platform that be developed in parallel with the bCARS microscope. This microfluidics platform will feature a pump system feeding into a microfluidic slide using a hydrodynamic flow focusing structure to generate water-in-oil droplets with high-throughput, continuous-flow, and the capacity for ultralow-volume sorting of cells. Off-the-shelf or customised PDMS or glass chips will be used to create the water droplets in oil that are hydrodynamically focused at high flow rates. Should off-the-shelf solutions not meet the needs of the project, the postdoc will help design chips to meet the required specifications and we will outsource manufacture. The postdoc will be required to work closely with other team members building the bCARS microscope and will be involved in alignment of the laser system into the hydrodynamic channel to probe the flowing cells.
