Subject: Summer undergraduate research opportunity at MSAL

Description:
The MEMS Sensors and Actuators Laboratory (MSAL) at UMD is seeking
undergraduate students in computer science and other relevant science or
engineering majors for a research position with our MiND team through Summer
2015.

The research will focus on developing signal processing approaches
(multivariate statistics, PLSR, neural networks, ...) to integrate signals
from arrays of distinct sensors to achieve synergistic selectivity and
sensitivity. The position is part of the Microsystems development for
Neuropsychiatric Disorders (MiND) project, which is aimed at utilizing
micro-system technology, integrating microfluidics as well as biomaterials
and chemometrics, towards a real-time portable monitoring device (similar to
glucometers) for schizophrenia treatment with the highly effective but
currently underutilized drug clozapine.

Experience with statistical analysis and MATLAB or similar is required. As an
undergraduate researcher in our lab, you will be directly involved in
team-based, cross-disciplinary research, and gain valuable hands-on
experience. You will be mentored by a principal graduate student and other
members of the lab. You will be expected to commit at least ~20 hours/week
(full-time preferred) to this position.
