SiPhox Health is pioneering a revolutionary home testing platform for biomarkers associated with inflammation, hormones, and metabolic/cardiovascular health. With 6 out of 10 Americans affected by chronic disease, our mission is to enable new direct-to-consumer health and wellness paradigms to address this crisis. Our chip-based solution integrates biochemistry with cutting-edge photonics, electronics, and microfluidics.

We are seeking a photonics intern to join our R&D team for a minimum of 3 months. This role offers the opportunity to contribute to our hardware development while gaining hands-on experience in a dynamic medtech startup.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Conduct detailed optical measurements and functional biosensing experiments to characterize the performance of photonic devices
  • Build and refine experimental setups for effective light coupling into optical chips
  • Analyze data from wafer and chip characterization to assess and enhance device performance
  • Document results and present findings and insights clearly to the team

Qualifications and Skills:

  • B.S., M.S. or PhD. in Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics, Optics, or a related field
  • Hands-on experience with integrated optics
  • Proficiency with photonic characterization tools such as lasers, photodetectors, and data acquisition systems
  • Programming experience in Python
  • Experience with biosensors is a plus

Additional Information:

  • Opportunity to work in a fast-paced and innovative environment
  • Potential for growth and full-time opportunities post-internship

If you are a motivated individual with a passion for photonics and a desire to make a tangible impact on healthcare, we would love to hear from you!
