  • The main objective of this position will be a member of the engineering team that develops a new point of care analyzer as part of a new product development project within R&D
  • This role is focused on systems integration – requiring understanding of the functional interfaces in the system as well as the ability to build and execute test protocols to ensure system functionality
  • This position will typically be part of a cross functional R&D team that has staff with multiple engineering and science disciplines, collaborating to accomplish complex system objectives.


Responsibilities of the position may include:

-                      Analyze instrument performance using a variety of commercial and custom tools.

-                      Work with Instrument Software (Labview or C++/C#/Java etc.) in the creation of experimental builds to support the systems group in integration testing.

-                      Design, plan and execute laboratory experiments to evaluate feasibility of concepts.

-                      Solve complex technical issues by troubleshooting, determining root cause, and then proposing design modifications.

-                      Assist in development of system level control algorithms for optimized operation of the instrument.

-                      Write, perform or oversee verification and validation plans and protocols to effectively test designs against requirements and customer needs.

-                      Review test data against established pass criteria.

-                      Write clear, data-driven technical summaries and test reports.


            Undergraduate degree in Physical Science or Engineering (biomedical engineering, chemistry, physics, preferred fields). Ideally with a Minor in Computer Science or related field.


            0-5 years in biomedical/medical R & D (industrial or academic)

Specific skills

            Understanding of systems architecture and design

            Knowledge of Programming tools/IDEs and languages such as VB, C/C++/C#, Java etc.

            Labview experience

            Experience with Data Analysis tools such as Matlab

            Experimental experience is preferred.

            Good interpersonal skills

The successful candidate will have a good understanding of engineering fundamentals.   He/she will be able to perform systems thinking (big picture view).
