  • Program and debug fluidic instrumentation
  • Assemble and perform metrology on prototype consumables
  • Characterize flow profile, pressure, leakage, and material interaction for devices under test
  • Assemble, maintain and debug test setups
  • Analyze and present test results

REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS:

  • 1 to 2 years hands-on experience in an R&D laboratory or equivalent
  • Knowledge of basic fluid dynamics and principles
  • Experience with assembly and running of fluidic-based systems
  • Experience with experimental design and execution, including DOEs and root cause analysis
  • Demonstrated ability to work independently and collaboratively across disciplines
  • Experience with programming (MATLAB, LabView, C++, etc.) is preferred

PREFERRED EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND:
