The optical systems group at Illumina performs research and development on advanced optical technologies to push the limits of DNA sequencing. The resulting machines find application in medical diagnostics and cutting edge genetic research.
In a 12-week internship, the intern will contribute to this research pipeline via the testing and screening of novel optical technologies, through research, designing, and building optical breadboard systems. These technologies integrate with sophisticated biochemical systems, requiring complex problem solving at the interface of physics, engineering, and biochemistry.
Applications are being accepted up to 16th December 2018, with assessment days scheduled last 2 weeks of January 2019.
