A permanent opportunity has arisen with a start-up client in Galway who are looking to hire an experienced Senior Biomechanical R&D Engineer to join their team. This hire will be part of the team responsible for the development of their new cardiac medical device. The Senior R&D Engineer - Biomechanics will work from the company’s office in Galway and be able to travel occasionally.
The Senior R&D Engineer - Biomechanics will work closely with physicians, subject matter experts, researchers, and colleagues.
As Senior Biomechanical R&D Engineer, you will share the responsibility of realizing the full potential of the technology.
The successful candidate will have entrepreneurial spirit, the required persistence to succeed in a start-up organisation, and the ability to work in a highly dynamic environment.
Your key responsibility will be to research the impact of device design on anatomy and physiology by analysing the output from in vitro and in vivo models.
You will create numerical or physical engineering models that mimic these device behaviours so that design alternatives can be developed and tested.
You will network with universities, interact with customers and cooperate with SMEs to develop model.
Work to develop, design, document and perform test method validations.
Required Qualifications & Characteristics:
Must have at least 5 years industry experience in medical device development.
Must hold a recognised primary degree or masters in relevant engineering or scientific disciplines (e.g., Biomechanical or biomedical engineering, biomedical science, applied physics, mechanical engineering).
Knowledge of the potential impact medical devices have on anatomy and physiology while in use (e.g., bio-tribology) and how to model it.
Willingness to travel on occasion.
Experience with physical measurement equipment, sensors and simulated use testing of catheter-based, electro-pneumatic medical devices.
Experience using 3D CAD modelling software (e.g., Solidworks).
Programming skills in Matlab & Simulink.
Experience working to regulatory requirements of 21CFR820, MDR and ISO13485 and developing and executing Gauge R&R studies.
