The Illinois Biological Foundry for Advanced Biomanufacturing (iBioFAB) team works to rapidly advance genetic engineering and synthetic biology through the use of automation techniques. The Illinois Biofoundry is a robotic system contained within a sterile enclosure and is capable of working with bacterial, fungal, and mammalian cell cultures. These types of platforms are extremely rare worldwide and the iBioFAB has established itself as a world leader in the new field of automated biology. Techniques developed here will be integrated into industrial processes within the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical industries.
The team has established members with strong backgrounds in biology, but is hoping to expand and further customize its automation capabilities by recruiting engineers and computer scientists. Interested parties can apply for our open positions listed on handshake or contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org . Only a few platforms similar to the iBioFAB exist worldwide and we are looking to recruit passionate engineers wanting to learn more about state-of-the-art genetic engineering.
