Description du poste

Job Description

Bringing a comprehensive background in microengineering, the individual will work both independently and collaboratively in a team to design and develop advanced implantable neurosensing and neuromodulation devices that collect real-time neural signals, transmit multichannel recordings and provide closed loop control signals for a range of human applications. The Lab Engineer will work in the Advanced Technology team dedicated to developing key components for future generations of neurotechnology devices.

In his/her position the Lab Engineer will:

  • Design, build and assemble prototypes of medical devices, containing biocompatible materials, adhesives and silicones
  • Assemble demonstrators and bench test setups with mechanical and electronic components
  • Deliver comprehensive and detailed documentation of the assembled prototypes in compliance with specifications and traceability requirements
  • Run test protocols to verify safety and mechanical performance of the devices and prototypes, in collaboration with mechanical and R&D engineers
  • Test new concepts with accelerated aging equipment, according to established protocols
  • Complete test reports for traceability and reproducibility of testing activities
  • Cooperate with electrical and software engineers to build tools and motorized/ automated setups 
  • Work with suppliers and sub-contractors to control and follow purchasing activities

The candidate should be flexible and open to providing innovative technical solutions for multiple neurotechnology applications in a cutting edge, multidisciplinary project-based environment. The candidate must also be able to work independently to identify innovative approaches to mechanical design solutions suitable for active implantable medical devices.

To apply, please send your CV and a covering letter to before July 31st, 2019.
