This is a research project on novel sapphire-based high-speed nanopore sensing we are developing for detection of a variety of biomolecules. We will analyze simple DNA and protein molecules to characterize the nanopore sensor performance. This technology will be used for infectious disease detection (including COVID-19), cancer biomarker (DNA methylation) detection, and DNA memory.
Previous experience in data analysis, use of data-analyzing software ( Matlab, Origin, etc)
GPA of 3.5 or higher
We expect to hire multiple FURI and master students on this project.
We expect to continue the project with REU funds to continuously support FURI students.
By the end of Dec 2020, we will consider to provide the most exceptional master student a research assistant-ship (25% FTE, 10 hours per week, with tuition, stipend and benefit support) starting in Jan 2021. Please email Dr. Wang (email@example.com)
