People are the engine and driving force of innovations in our research lab. We always seek highly talented scientists from different disciplinary backgrounds (engineering (i.e., mechanical, electronic, biomedical, material), biomedicine, biology, and chemistry) with demonstrated expertise, and ability in working in a diverse, interdisciplinary environment.

Postdoctoral Position


The Smart Medical Devices and Systems (SMDS) Lab at the UConn Health has an opening for a postdoctoral fellow to develop low cost point of care diagnostic device/system. The postdoctoral fellow must have a strong experimental background and demonstrated expertise in at least two of the following fields: microfluidics, molecular diagnostics (i.e., PCR or isothermal amplification), point-of-care testing, infectious disease detection, or cancer early diagnostics.


Outstanding candidates are invited to submit a letter of application detailing their relevant background, providing the names and e-mail addresses of at least three references, a CV, and copies of relevant reprints and pre-prints. Send the application to chaliu@uchc.edu.


The UConn Health is an affirmative action employer, in addition to an EEO and M/F/V/PWD/PV employer.

Research Assistant Positions


We look for highly talented and self-motivated students (i.e., graduate students, undergraduate students, even high school students) interested in our interdisciplinary research projects. Previous experience in microfluidics, biosensor technology and BioMEMS devices is not required, but the demonstrated expertise in a particular field (i.e., mechanical design, molecular biology, analytical chemistry, clinical diagnostics, micro/nanofabrication, nanotechnology, circuit design, and program development) is important. We welcome inquiries about openings with a cover letter and curriculum vitae at chaliu@uchc.edu.
