  • Mechatronics Research Engineer II Job available

    The Neural Engineering Center for Artificial Limbs (NECAL) at the
    Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) is looking for an ambitious
    Research Engineer II in mechatronics to be an integral team member of a new
    project to develop a robotic prosthetic limb. This project is led by Jon
    Sensinger, PhD, and our multidisciplinary team includes engineers,
    prosthetists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, neuroscientists,
    and physicians. NECAL has a worldwide reputation as a leader in innovated
    treatment of people with limb loss including the groundbreaking "Targeted
    Reinnervation" surgical technique.

    The successful applicant will design, fabricate, and tests components of
    mechatronic prosthetic limbs. The engineer will be responsible for the
    design of gears, linkages, and components to meet required efficiencies and
    safety factors, and will create CAD drawings, interact with appropriate
    manufactures and machine companies, and assemble / debugs components, as
    well as test components and create models to suggest future improvements.

    Interested applicants should have at least a Bachelors degree in mechanical
    engineering. Two years of experience in mechatronics are required, and
    familiarity with gear, linkage, composite structure design, and high/low
    precision tolerance design is preferred. The applicant must have experience
    with 3D CAD and FEA (SolidWorks preferred) and programming software (Matlab
    preferred). Other desired attributes include analytical abilities necessary
    to understand complex problems and to resolve these problems through the
    application of appropriate technologies, the ability to work independently
    and structure time to meet deadlines, and the ability to be flexible to
    changing design requirements and deliverables. The engineer should be able
    to work with hand tools, electronics tools, and machine tools to fabricate,
    adjust, modify, and repair devices as necessary.

    Since 1991, the RIC has been consistently ranked the best rehabilitation
    hospital in America by US News and World Report. RIC is recognized worldwide
    as being a leader in patient care, advocacy, research and educating health
    professionals in physical medicine and rehabilitation. RIC is well known for
    specialized services, including Prosthetics and Orthotics, Assistive
    Technology, and outstanding integrative therapy programs, which help
    individuals lead more independent and fulfilling lives.

    RIC houses the nation's largest rehabilitation research programs in the
    country. Research teams at RIC are involved in more than 200 projects, with
    a focus in rehabilitation robotics; motor learning and adaptation. We are
    partners with Northwestern University and Northwestern University Feinberg
    School of Medicine.
