Communicate with an interdisciplinary team to compile and track system integration problems and upgrade requests.
Using script language to program liquid handlers and other lab automation instruments automate proprietary assay protocols and verify the performance of the automated systems.
Help support and improve existing high throughput laboratory automation systems.
Guided by senior scientists/engineers, develop test methodology, plan and test instrumentation prototypes to evaluate their performances.
Under the general guidance of senior supervisor, design and perform experiments to identify and trouble shoot prototypes and lab automation systems.
Report trouble shooting findings to the instrument development team and help to develop solutions to address root causes.
Requirements include:

M.S. degree with relevant experience or B.S. plus 5+ years of relevant industrial experience.
Experience in programming, testing of bioinstrumentation and/or lab automation systems.
Demonstrated ability to understand and successfully work across multiple disciplines such as engineering, software and assay development teams.
