Description

  • All internship positions are designed to give college students an opportunity to apply techniques learned in an academic setting while obtaining new skills. This is a paid internship offering full-time hours during the summer months.All interns are required to conclude the program by giving a formal presentation on their work. Please note that no relocation assistance is provided for the internship program. 

Position Summary: 

  • Asuragen, a Bio-Techne brand (NASDAQ: TECH), is a molecular diagnostic product company based in Austin, TX, changing the way patients are treated in genetics and oncology. Asuragen’s diagnostic systems, composed of proprietary chemistry and software, deliver powerful answers using broadly installed instrument platforms. They are simple to adopt and expand the ability to serve patients. 
  •  Asuragen’s sister company, Exosome Diagnostics, is a global molecular diagnostics product and solutions company that specializes in harnessing the power of exosomes to revolutionize disease management and patient care through non-invasive liquid biopsies. Our industry-leading exosome enrichment and analysis technology platform offers a non-invasive, multiomic window into human disease, enabling breakthrough diagnostic solutions. Our product portfolio includes the first and only exosome-based diagnostic for prostate cancer, the Prostate IntelliScore (EPI) test.  
  • As an AI Research Engineer, you will collaborate with computational and wet-lab scientists across Asuragen and Exosome Diagnostics to advance our discovery platform by developing new AI-based capabilities to organize, learn, and present multiomics data to an end user. Building upon strong foundations in large-scale NGS data pipelines applied to discover novel disease signatures, you will work collaboratively and cross-functionally with R&D scientists to advance our AI-based multiomics capabilities using the latest developments in AI research.
