We are seeking an Engineer to join our Research and Development group. In this role you will work on the development of instrumentation and consumables for new genomic tools. See recently released Sprint TM (http://nanostringsprint.com/). In particular, this position is focused on the development of hardware related to the recently announced Hyb & Seq TM technology (NGS), a novel single-molecule hybridization-based sequencing chemistry. The work is highly interdisciplinary and will involve working closely with scientists, fluidics engineers, software engineers, and external OEM manufacturers. The applicant will be expected to contribute to the development of instrument/consumable prototypes for feasibility and aid in the testing of these systems. Additionally, the applicant will be expected to work with OEM partners and assist in the development of the new systems up to and through commercialization and transfer to manufacturing. The applicant will be expected to have strong verbal and written communication skills and will be expected to manage communication with OEM partners.
