    New Position Announcement

    Research Engineer II

    Associates in Research&Technology work together on many program areas, but
    it is envisioned that one of these positions will initially primarily support
    specification, research and testing of Dynamic Stabilization concepts, and
    the other will primarily support specification, research and testing of
    Interspinous concepts. The Research Engineers in these positions will specify
    performance and design criteria for new devices and treatments, interpret test data
    from biomechanical, cadaveric, and animal studies, and analyze and verify
    design concepts. The successful Research Engineers will support spinal product
    development efforts across the company by formulating, specifying, conducting
    and managing benchtop testing as well as preclinical cadaveric and animal
    studies. They will also conceptualize spinal treatments for addressing future
    needs, and establish, initiate and manage feasibility studies.

    The Research Engineers will contribute to communication within the group,
    the company, and in the greater scientific and surgical community by writing
    reports and white papers, making technical presentations to Project Teams and
    writing/coauthoring manuscripts for peer-reviewed publication. The Engineers
    in these positions of technical authority will also participate in the
    training of the sales force and other associates, lead intellectual property
    development efforts, and participate in scientific conferences and standards
    specification activities.

    Research Engineer II: B.Sc. in an engineering-related field, preferably
    Mechanical or Materials plus 5 years, or M.Sc. plus 2 years of medical device
    industry experience.

    Qualified candidates should have a strong knowledge and experience base in
    research and development of medical devices, including benchtop, in vitro and
    in vivo experimental models, evaluation methods, and experimental protocols
    and product development and manufacturing processes. The ability to prioritize
    and manage multiple tasks/projects and excellent verbal and written
    communication skills to effectively interact with internal team members, vendors and
    external researchers and surgeon collaborators is essential. Experience and
    knowledge of spreadsheet software (Excel preferred) and basic statistics is
    essential. Previous peer-reviewed publications, advanced knowledge of
    orthopaedic materials, and CAD and FEA knowledge are very beneficial. Orthopaedics
    experience is strongly desired.
    Please submit a resume with 3 references for consideration:
