Fixed-term (3-6 months)
Proteins are the key drivers of any organism. Our mission at HexagonFab is to unlock the secrets of proteins and their interactions. We want to create the tools that enable anyone to understand how a protein behaves, what its properties are and how it interacts with other molecules. Our tools help researchers to develop the medicine of the future, to find the best ways to produce novel biomolecules and to assure that medicine is always safe and efficacious.
We are a dynamic, interdisciplinary team working at the intersection of biology, nanotechnology and data science. We value a flat hierarchy, where everyone is encouraged to share their ideas and to follow their passion. We believe it is important to move fast, to make mistakes and then to try again. This approach has led us to the invention of our biosensor platform powered by a nanomaterial-based transistor that is the core of our technology. Join us to bring biology to the next level.
You will be part of our R&D team, supporting the development and optimization of HexagonFab’s sensor platform within our multidisciplinary team of chemists and engineers. As a hardware engineering intern, you will be involved in the design, building, and maintenance of the instrumentation that enables electrochemical measurements using our biosensing technology. This includes general hardware development (i.e., PCB design, electronics prototyping, mechanical assemblies, validation) as well as light software development (i.e., writing/maintaining firmware and software to collect data and control an automation rig). At the beginning of your internship, we will define a project together with you that you will work on independently. The position is based in Cambridge, UK.
16th of April 2021 or by arrangement
First stage via video or phone call, followed by a face-to-face interview with members of the team
