  • Position Announcement - Biomedical Research Engineer

    Title: Biomedical Research Engineer

    Employer: The Institute for Mobility and Longevity

    Location: West Palm Beach, FL

    The Institute for Mobility and Longevity, is an international,
    not-for-profit organization located in Florida that improves mobility and
    quality of life through orthopaedic research, education and clinical
    excellence. Opportunities exist for two biomedical engineers to work with a
    diverse team of engineers, researchers and clinicians in the evaluation of
    orthopaedic implants and human motion. These positions exist in our research
    division within the Orthopaedic Research Laboratory and require considerable
    interaction with our human performance, materials testing and implant
    retrieval labs. Work responsibilities will necessitate substantial
    self-motivation and independent effort, as well as ongoing interaction with
    the Director of Research and Medical Director.

    Qualified candidates will have, at minimum, a Bachelor's degree in
    Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering or related field with
    emphasis in biomechanics and three years of work experience. Candidates with
    Master's degrees and less experience also will be considered. Candidates
    must have experience in musculoskeletal research or orthopaedic device
    evaluation. Responsibilities will include implementation of experimental
    design and measurement, development and execution of test protocols, and
    writing reports for publication. Knowledge of motion capture systems (Vicon
    or equivalent) and strong technical computing skills (ProE, GeoMagic,
    SolidWorks, Ansys, Abacus, or equivalent) is highly desirable. Knowledge of
    mechanical testing (Instron or equivalent hydraulic test frames; LabView or
    equivalent control software) and computer programming (MatLab or equivalent)
    is a plus.

    The Institute for Mobility and Longevity has recently expanded its research
    operations into a new 3,500 square foot facility at Good Samaritan Medical
    Center in West Palm Beach, Florida. Programs are focused on in vivo and in
    vitro evaluation of orthopaedic implants and human musculoskeletal
    biomechanics. We have collaborated with more than 30 international
    institutions with research encompassing fluoroscopic joint kinematics,
    implant retrieval analysis, gait analysis, sports biomechanics, mechanical
    testing, and implant design. Major analytical equipment consists of a
    scanning electron microscope with spectrometer, a 3D digital coordinate
    measuring stylus, a biaxial hydraulic press, a 10 camera motion capture
    system with dual force plates, wireless EMG, a fluoroscopic video
    radiographic unit, histological equipment, and light microscopes.

    The Institute for Mobility and Longevity offers competitive salary and
    benefits. All candidates must provide employment eligibility verification to
    work in the USA. The anticipated start date for this position is autumn

    Qualified applicants are requested to email resumes to with "research engineer" in the subject line.
