Wearable and At-Home protein monitoring with silicon photonic chips
We are looking for a Bio-Automation Intern to help us develop our multiplexed at-home diagnostics tool!
SiPhox, a Khosla Ventures, and Y-Combinator backed startup, is building a next-generation diagnostics platform that provides the power of large laboratory instruments in a handheld device that accepts disposable cartridges. Each cartridge can multiplex many biomarkers on a single $0.50 silicon photonic chip and provides a highly sensitive readout of immunoassays and molecular diagnostics. The sensor chips are made in standard silicon chip foundry processes and can be easily scaled to provide a billion tests per week. SiPhox is based in the Boston area.
We are looking for an automation engineer with strong software and robotics/automation skills to assist with the ongoing development of bio-automation for our R&D team. (A plus if you have a background in both biology and engineering.)
What to Expect:
We are developing a new paradigm for consumer health tech wearables by replacing a 100lb optical instrument with an area of silicon smaller than a postage stamp.
