Internship - Software Engineering & IoT for Laboratory Automation

Laboratory automation approaches, and notably laboratory robotics, bestows multiple benefits through improvements in reproducibility, researcher efficiency, clinical translation, and safety [1]. Ultimately, combining them with machine learning tools to automatically optimize experimental design allows to speed up research and discovery [2]. The goal of this internship is to build software to support such ambitious goals.

We are looking for a resourceful and creative intern to join our Paris team for 6 months to support the integration, automation and autonomous control of several in-house and commercial laboratory devices to further the development of our platform. This role provides an opportunity to work in a fast-paced startup environment and contribute to solving complex problems that will have an impact in improving healthcare.

Key Responsibilities :

  • Write software to control in-house instrumentation for automated cell culture using a Raspberry Pi (GPIO/UART/I2C).

  • Implement a REST API to serve the device control operations to external users over the cloud.

  • Handle different device designs and configurations in a modular way using object-oriented programming.

  • Timely delivery of results to reach internal milestones and technology development goals.

  • Documentation of SOPs and protocols for internal users.

  • Preparation of reports and presentations about technical progress.

Requirements :

  • Enrolled in a Masters program in Robotics, Computer Science, or equivalent.

  • Hands-on skills in object-oriented programming  (e.g. Python, Java,  C++) with an emphasis on code robustness, readability and reusability.

  • Proven experience with all phases of the software development lifecycle.

  • Must work well in a multidisciplinary team environment.

  • Demonstrated  problem-solving skills and attention to detail.

  • Fluent in English, with excellent oral and written communication skills.

  • Current European work authorization.

Nice to have experience:

  • Familiarity with or interest in automated system development (e.g. RaspberryPi (preferred) or Arduino) and hardware-software interfacing (e.g. SPI, I2C and UART based on Python)

  • Prior experience with cloud computing (AWS, GCP or similar).

  • Prior experience with REST APIs.

  • Basic knowledge in electronic circuit design and digital signal processing.
