The Linnes lab has grown at an unprecedented rate: from no students in when the lab started in January 2015 to 4 graduates and 2 undergraduates in August 2015. We are near maximum capacity! However, incoming candidates with their own sources of research funding will always be considered. Please send email inquiries below.
Graduate students are mainly recruited through the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering Graduate Program and the Interdisciplinary Biomedical Sciences Program at Purdue University. We also work closely with collaborators in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Analytical Chemistry, and our clinical partners throughout the world. Ideal candidates will have an interest in global health technologies, wearable and point-of-care diagnostics, and experience with molecular and microbiology, BioMEMS and biosensors, diagnostics, paper/microfluidics, and/or instrumentation design.
We currently have potential availability for 1-2 additional undergraduate students with a desire to work in the laboratory for multiple semesters, at 10+ hours/week, and are who willing work for research credit. Acceptance into the lab will also depend on scheduling and availability of graduate mentors for undergraduate student projects.
