Microfluidics Engineer

Engender Technologies Limited, Auckland, New Zealand
Employer Description

Engender Technologies Limited is a New Zealand company that has developed a new technology to separate X- and Y-bearing bull sperm cells. The technology is a sort-on-a-chip approach with integrated microfluidic and photonic components. It is expected to be low cost and cause minimal discernable damage to the cells. Sex sorting is expected to sustainably accelerate genetic gain and improve cost efficiencies in large animal reproduction.

Job Description

Join a multidisciplinary team of engineers/physicists/biologists developing a new microfluidics and photonics based cell sorting technology.

We are looking for someone to help design and develop our proprietary microfluidic cell sorting chips.

The job will involve:

  • Design, fabrication and testing of microfluidic chips
  • Analysis/calculation/optimisation of hydrodynamic force effects as a function of microfluidic chip geometry.
  • Incorporation of microfluidic and photonic advances
