Position Details

Recruitment/Posting Title Postdoctoral Associate

Department Engn - Mech & Aerospace Engn

Salary Commensurate With Experience

Posting Summary

The position is fully funded by a recent award from the NIH. The successful candidate will work under the guidance Dr. Edward P. DeMauro (PI).

We are looking for a talented postdoctoral researcher to lead efforts in designing, testing, and translating a novel device for rapidly sensing of SARS-CoV-2 or other viruses from patients’ exhaled breath. The end goal of this project is the creation of a fully functional physical prototype. The device will utilize a novel, patented, liquid-based filtration technique to capture particles and/or sputum for rapid assessment of viral load. At its core, the mechanical challenge is fundamentally a multiphase fluid flow problem, encompassing concepts associated with: (1) inlet nozzle design and optimization; (2) multiphase gas-liquid interactions and transport; (3) filtration design and testing. The successful candidate will be part of a multidisciplinary team, required to interact with colleagues from the Rutgers University Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering to ensure a useful, practical final product. For this project, we are looking for a self-motivated, independent individual who can produce on a tight schedule with minimal supervision. Previous experience with design, machining, and experimental setup/troubleshooting are highly desired.
