2024 Spring-Summer Co-op Positions
Nanoscale Biological Separations Co-op
This co-op position will be focused on the separation and purification of nanoparticles, including extracellular vesicles, from human stem cells, vascular endothelial cells, and bacterial cells. The co-op student will work with nanoparticle characterization and separation tools, including novel nanopocket membranes being developed in the Gaborski NanoBio Materials Laboratory. The co-op student will work closely with a senior Ph.D. student and Ph.D. scientist in the laboratory as well as scientists at two industrial partners.
Blood-Brain Barrier Co-op
This co-op position will be focused on studying the barrier integrity of the blood-brain barrier in a tissue-on-a-chip system using primary human cells and adult induced pluripotent stem cells. The co-op student will be involved in cell culture, fluorescence microscopy and the study of transport of extracellular vesicles across the cellular barriers. They will work closely with a senior Ph.D. student in the laboratory as well as collaborators around the world.
The ideal candidates:
- Have relevant prior experience from an industrial co-op, academic research, or an advanced laboratory-based technical elective.
- Are available to start part-time immediately to begin training and learning techniques related to these research positions.
