  • Apply control theory to the design and verification of mechatronic and telerobotic systems.
  • Analyze complex electro-mechanical devices for dynamic safety and clinical risk.
  • Facilitate mechanical, hardware, and software integration of new products.
  • Address issues in production and also in the field. Perform analysis, evaluate risk, determine root causes, propose design improvements.
  • Document and pursue intellectual property.
  • Improve group workflow through building tools and teaching others.
  • Support and track system performance as it moves from design to manufacturing.

Skills, Experience, Education, & Training:

  • Minimum PhD (preferred) or MS in robotics-related field.
  • Minimum 5 years of experience in related field.
  • Demonstrate intuitive understanding of mechanical phenomena with ability to do rigorous modeling and analysis.
  • Demonstrate sound engineering judgment and technical skills in problem solving - from improving and optimizing performance levels to identifying issues and driving improvement.
  • Experience in hardware and software integration of complex electromechanical systems and/or serial-arm robot kinematics is preferred.
  • C/C++ and Matlab programming skills. Knowledge of Python is a plus.
