Position Summary:

The individual will contribute in the development of existing and new medical technologies and applications.

Duties and Responsibilities:

·  Define and guide development of elegant mechanical designs that meet requirements for product performance, cost, reliability, and manufacturability.

·  Develop designs for all phases of product development from proof-of-concept through manufacturing.

·  Drive design verification by testing design performance in the lab and design validation by developing fast-turn clinical prototypes for use in the research clinic.

·  Contribute regularly to technical design reviews, project scheduling, and development of new product concepts and applications.

·  Use FEA simulation tools to model mechanical assemblies and guide design development.

·  Other duties as assigned.

Position Requirements:

·  B.S. in Mechanical engineering with 5+ years related mechanical design experience for capital equipment, laser, or medical devices. Graduate degree a plus.

·  Experienced in design of opto-mechanical assemblies. Experience designing mechanical actuation assemblies such as laser beam scanning systems, translation and rotation stages is a plus. Knowledge of strain-free mounting techniques for optics using adhesives is a plus.

·  Strong understanding of GD&T principles and ability to evaluate and apply them to precision mechanical designs.

·  Proven 10+ years of CAD design experience. SolidWorks preferred.

·  Extensive knowledge of leading manufacturing technologies including plastic injection molding, sheet metal manufacturing, and high precision machining.

·  Proven communication skills and ability to make design recommendations based on cross-functional inputs (Engineering, Clinical, Manufacturing, Quality, and Regulatory).

·  Ability to apply FEA simulation tools to develop designs by correlating simulation results with empirical test data.

·  Basic working knowledge, electronics, optics, and numerical data analysis (Excel, Matlab, or equivalent). Data acquisition skills such as LabView is a plus.

·  Familiarity with FDA Quality Systems Regulations/Design Control requirements and their application to projects from design inception to manufacturing release.

·  Knowledge and experience with IEC 60601 compliance standards and ISO14971 Risk Management requirements and techniques.
