Superhero Synthetic Biology + Diagnostics Intern
Our near-term mission is to deliver a highly sensitive, disposable point-of-care and at-home COVID-19 test for $1, processed using a $100 handheld reader.
We are looking for a Synthetic Biology and Diagnostics Intern to help run on-chip CRISPR experiments (https://www.siphox.bio)
Your mission: To save the World!
Our mission: To deliver a highly sensitive, disposable point-of-care and at-home COVID-19 test.
Our superpowers: Chip-scale integration of opto-bio sensors.
Your superpowers: Fast learner, experience running assays in a research setting
CRISPR experience, Immunoassay, PCR experience, and diagnostics experience a big plus!
This is a very exciting, early-stage startup position. We are located near MIT in Cambridge, MA.

Grad students preferred but undergrads considered.
We multiplex RNA, antibody and antigen tests on a single silicon photonic chip. Our CRISPR-based RNA detection is amplified by plasmon resonance and silicon photonic resonator readout. Our goal is to match PCR sensitivity and specificity without preamplification of nucleic acids.
