We are a group of experimentalists dedicated to solving problems at the interface of engineering, soft matter, and biology! The tool we use is microfluidics. Applications of our work include biochemical sensing and diagnostics, water and energy sustainability.

Open Position. We are seeking a joint NIST-Stanford postdoctoral fellow to help develop millimeter-scale cryofluidic systems for working with and handling functional biomaterials (i.e., cells, cultures, environmental samples). Ideal candidate should be able to work independently, and also with a diverse team of scientists, engineers, and designers to rapidly prototype and iterate on the design and testing of integrated systems (i.e., build a 'box', test a 'box', debug and repeat). Expertise and prior experience in working with fluids in low temperature systems (e.g.,-80C) and interfacing low temperature fluidic systems to other mechanical and electronic systems strongly desired. US citizenship required.

Please contact Sindy Tang (Mechanical Engineering, sindy@stanford.edu) and Drew Endy (Bioengineering, endy@stanford.edu) if available and interested along with 1) your CV, 2) a statement describing why you are interested and qualified for the position, and 3) a list of names and contact information of references.
