My client, a major medical device manufacturer, has an excellent new
opportunity available. Please read the description below to see if this matches
your skills and experience.

POSITION AVAILABLE: Senior Research Engineer, Finite Element Analysis

Principal Job Functions:
This engineer will specialize in the use of computer simulation tools, such
as Finite Element Analysis (FEA), to solve challenging R&D problems. The
individual assumes responsibility for all phases of an analysis project, from
initial requestor contact to final report. This person reports to a Principal
Engineer in the Structural Design and Analysis Group, but is expected to handle
responsibilities with little or no supervision. Additional responsibilities
include the following:
1. Work closely with requestors to develop an analysis protocol, and
maintain close communication throughout the course of a project in order to
adjust the project scope and objectives as required.
2. Perform all phases of product simulation, and summarize the
process and results in a formal written report.
3. Act as internal consultant/teacher on product simulation related
issues. Help to increase awareness and understanding of the capabilities and
limitations of simulation tools.
4. Assist in the maintenance and upgrading or addition of computer
hardware and simulation software.
5. Maintain communication with vendors, suppliers, test laboratory
engineers, outside consultants and outside researchers on matters pertaining to
job duties and other business related issues.
6. Monitor technical and medical literature for advances relative to
job function.
7. Maintain a level of expertise consistent with current best
practices through continuing education.
Minimum qualifications include an M.S. degree in Engineering or
Science from an accredited curriculum in Mechanical Engineering, Engineering
Mechanics, or related discipline. Knowledge of orthopaedic implants and
orthopaedic biomechanics is preferred.
Working knowledge of the principles of solid mechanics and the
application of simulation techniques such as FEA to solid mechanics analysis is
required. Knowledge of fatigue, fracture mechanics and material science
(particularly mechanical behavior of engineering materials) are desirable.
Candidate must possess problem-solving capabilities, to be able to
perform failure analysis, develop testing methodologies, and execute
materials characterization studies.
Candidate must have superior communication, technical writing, and
PC skills and be comfortable making technical presentations. Experience
with FEA software packages ABAQUS (standard and explicit), ANSYS and PATRAN is
preferred. General business software and experience with CAD software (e.g
Unigraphics) or other geometry manipulation software (e.g. MIMICS, Geomagic
Studio) are desired.
Knowledge of project management techniques (possibly including the
use of project management software) is desirable.
Five years experience in an industrial/manufacturing environment.
There will be a moderate amount of business travel requiring
absences from home.
Excellent comprehensive compensation package is provided for qualified
candidate within a very successful, rapidly growing organization.
