The postdoc can join immediately, while students are expected to join MSU in the Fall of 2024.Researchers with any related engineering(electrical/mechanical/biomedical/chemical/materials engineering), science(biology/physics/chemistry), or medicine backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
Minimum English requirements for PhD applications: TOEFL: 80, IELTS: 6.5.
About the Lab
Lab Website: https://www.labli.net/
The LI Lab aims to engineer biologically interfaced machines, specifically miniaturized sensors, and robots, which can seamlessly integrate and precisely interact with the biological systems, towards precision, ubiquitous, and affordable healthcare infrastructure. We are particularly interested in fundamental sciences leading to new sensing and actuation principles, by exploring the spaces between traditionally different fields. We also seek to develop scalable manufacturing methods to translate these inventions into ubiquitous diagnostics and therapeutics. Examples of our work include soft bioelectronic neural interfaces for sensing neurotransmitters and hormones, microscale robots for targeted medicine delivery, and soft robots for safer human-machine interaction.
