Job Description:

The Senior Engineer will play a leading role in the development of next-generation brain-interfacing implantable devices. The incumbent will join an interdisciplinary team led by an industry-seasoned medical device engineer, Dr. Peng Cong, launching a new technology development group at UCSF in collaboration with neurosurgeon and neuroscience researcher Dr. Edward Chang. Primary responsibilities include the provision of mechanical design and materials expertise while working with cross-functional teams to define mechanical specifications based on system-level requirements and tradeoffs. In this role, the Engineer will design mechanical aspects of leads, packaging, and/or surgical tools for neuromodulation devices. The scope will extend to prototyping of mechanical designs, including integration with a variety of electronic components, using in-house tools or through engagements with vendors.--Work within this position will include the creation, control and storage of engineering drawings (CAD, SLDWKs, ProE, etc.); mechanical design verification per medical device standards; and performing failure analysis of mechanical aspects of device designs during evaluation.
PhD in Mechanical Engineering and professional lead-level experience on medical device/ implant projects strongly preferred.
The projects under development will include neuromodulatory device technology to address severe neurological disorders, with design directly informed by ongoing advanced clinical studies at UCSF. The incumbent will join and contribute to a lively and engaged research community at UCSF and UC Berkeley focused on the development of safe brain-interfacing interventions for a range of major clinical challenges, including neuropsychiatric disorders, epilepsy, movement disorders, stroke/paralysis and impaired communication/locked-in syndrome.
The Department of Neurological Surgery at UCSF School of Medicine is home to leading physicians and scientists dedicated to treating patients with surgically addressable neurological disorders including epilepsy, Parkinson---s disease, pain, spinal cord injury, tumors and brain trauma. The department integrates vibrant clinical, research and training programs. The Engineer will work under the supervision of Dr. Cong and in close collaboration with Dr. Chang and his laboratory. Dr. Chang---s research encompasses programs in multiple areas of leading-edge neurological science, undertaken by a large team including physician-scientists, postdoctoral scholars, graduate students, engineers, and clinical research coordinators.--Projects are further enabled by a team of experienced professional researchers and project management personnel.--
