Internship: Electronic Hardware Engineer2018-10-16T15:08:09-04:00


Electronic Hardware Engineer

We are seeking an electrical engineering student with a strong background in low power, low noise analog circuit design for developing next-generation body worn sensor technologies. The candidate will work directly with senior management in the hardware development team to evolve the existing product platform and translate advanced electronics research into commercial products. A cross disciplinary engineering perspective is fundamental, as electronic circuit designs must interface directly with skin-contact electrode materials as well as additional multi-sensing modalities, such as inertial measurement, force, and pressure distribution technologies. Candidates must have a proven track record of solving multi-disciplinary challenges and must exhibit a strong passion for engineering. The position will require exploratory activities to inform research projects, as well as mission-critical development for ongoing manufacturing efforts. Candidates will be involved with the full product life cycle, from requirement definition, design, development, verification, validation and final product release.

Primary Responsibilities

  • Assist in designing and building prototypes for research projects and new product concepts.
  • Assist engineering in performing verification and validation activities on new body worn sensors currently under development.
  • Perform functional tests on developing circuits and inform design modifications.
  • Assist in developing, documenting and validating manufacturing test fixtures for body-worn sensor products.
  • Assist the research team in data gathering experiments and data analysis and reporting.
  • Be willing to learn and assist with fine soldering skills.
  • Produce clear documentation on the work that has been performed
  • Debug mixed-signal circuit board assemblies using schematic and layout information

Required Qualifications

The candidate must:

  • Be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree in electrical, robotics, mechatronics, biomedical or similar engineering program
  • Be interested in developing analog circuit technologies
  • Have the capability to interpret analog and digital circuit schematics
  • Be familiar with typical EE lab bench equipment (oscilloscope, signal generators, digital multimeter)
  • Be comfortable working with 3D mechanical data & models
  • Be able to show independent problem-solving capability.

Preferred Qualifications

The ideal candidate should:

  • Have prior internship or co-op experience in industry
