Advances in droplet-based microfluidics have been instrumental in developing cutting-edge analysis technologies such as single-cell sequencing and single-cell isolation. For virtually all applications, achieving high throughput is key. We are looking for someone to help us set-up and test an innovative system for high-throughput droplet sorting. The work is predominantly experimental and will consist in interacting with researchers from different departments to perform the required preliminary tests, understand the concept behind the operation of the device (electric actuation, droplet formation and sorting, dielectrophoresis) and highlight aspects that can benefit from improvement in future iterations.
