Three Master of Science positions are available in the Microfluidic Laboratory at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, York University, Toronto, ON, Canada. We are seeking hard working, energetic and motivated students to start working immediately on cutting edge areas of research in Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering disciplines. Students in Mechanical, Electrical, Chemical and Biomedical engineering as well as applied physics are encouraged to apply.
Areas of research include developing MEMS and Lab on Chip (LOC) platforms for behavioral and neuronal investigation of micro-organisms and small animal models (nematodes, fruit fly); point of care diagnostics of infectious diseases such as Tuberculosis, Hepatitis, etc.; and fundamental investigation of LOC application in extreme environments such as space, deep see, etc.
The students will be entering a multidisciplinary laboratory environment that performs research in the bordering areas of engineering (mechanical, chemical, space and electrical) and science (physics, biology and chemistry). It is highly recommended that ONLY serious students to join York Mechanical Engineering and who are interested in multidisciplinary research apply for these positions.
Students are required to apply and be admitted to the graduate study programs at York University and will be supported by Teaching Assistantship, internal scholarships and Research Assistantship which all together will cover their tuition and living expenses in Toronto.
If interested, please email a short letter of interest (describe your achievements and strengths in research based on existing evidence such as publication, volunteering work, etc.), your undergraduate transcript copy, extended CV and two reference letters (submitted directly from your referee) to Dr. Pouya Rezai.
