Research assistant opening:

Leverage microscale fluid physics for high throughput experiments.

Position description:
Many pressing questions in science involve large numbers of components interacting in complex ways to give systems-level properties. Answering questions like these will require numbers of experiments commensurate with the complexity of the systems being studied. The Cira lab is developing technologies to enable new scales of experimental throughput and using them to untangle complex systems.

If you like making things, have a careful eye for details, and love science and engineering this position is for you!

Desired proficiencies include: fabrication (CNC, laser cutting, 3D printing), problem solving, experimental design and execution, ability to work independently and on a team, ability to conduct experiments and document results.
Helpful but not mandatory: microfabrication, surface chemistry, surface engineering, and capillarity and wetting.

Salary is competitive, and the Rowland Institute is located at the center of the Boston/Cambridge area.
