Di Carlo Microfluidics

The Chung lab has multiple openings for various positions. Stay tuned!

Postdoctoral Scholar Positions (starting on April or May 2016)

We are now accepting applications for a postdoctoral scholar opening for an inertial microfluidics research topic. Background in Lattice-Boltzman method for fluid-particle simulation, micro/nanofabrication, or/and Tissue Engineering is preferred.

Interested candidates should send a current CV, a summary of research experience, representative publications, and future research interests to Professor Aram Chung (chunga6@rpi.edu).

Ph.D. Student Positions

We normally accept one Ph.D. student per year. Please feel free contact Prof. Chung for students who have already been admitted to Ph.D. program at Rensselaer in the fields of Mechanical Engineering or Biomedical Engineering (other fields such as Aerospace and Nuclear Engineering will also be considered). We are particularly looking for students who are interested in exploring the uses of microfluidics for diagnosis and manufacturing (See the Research section for possible projects). Selected students will receive full financial support during their studies to conduct cutting-edge research. Interested parties should send an email to Professor Chung (chunga6@rpi.edu) and include their CV and a brief research interests.

For those who are NOT yet admiited are also welcome to contact Professor Chung but due to the volume of emails received there may be a delay in the response. Please send your C.V., background, any publications and research interests.

Masters and Undergraduate Student Positions

Motivated masters and undergraduate students who are interested in micro/nano-engienering and highly motivated in learning bio+optics+fluids are welcome to apply for research positions. No Lab experience is required but commitment and enthusiasm is strongly desired for undergraduate student positions. Send a short resume, and research experience/interest to chunga6@rpi.edu. Selected students will receive a partial financial support based on their experience and conduct research under the supervision of a graduate student/postdoctoral scholar in the lab.
