Senior / Principal Electronics Engineer

 

Candidate challenge

 

You will be part of the Go-2 project team in Eindhoven that designs, develops and implements a class III implantable medical device for electrical spinal cord stimulation with in- and on-body parts, featuring a closed loop control system.

The type of work will vary throughout the phases of the project.

• Design and development of body-worn electronics devices, from prototype to CE-marked product. The systems consist of micro-controllers, magnetic charging systems, Bluetooth RF communication, sensors, power and battery management etc.

• Co-operate with suppliers on design, development and manufacturing

• Support in testing of this equipment; set-up test tooling

• Work in multi-disciplinary team, focus on parts belonging to larger system and therefore being involved and part off integration testing, electrical characterization testing, design verification testing.

• Design the system to be tested under conditions defined in the IEC-60601 and prepare and guide the test activities in test houses.

• Multidisciplinary cooperate with e.g. mechanical engineers and regulatory for design of housing and environmental conditions

 

Candidate responsibilities

 

• Leading risk burn-down projects by setting up, prototyping and testing concept systems;

• Development and verification of electronic systems according IEC-60601 in cooperation with design houses;

• Characterization testing of electronics subsystems;

• Working with the Go-2 team to solve problems and identify improvements in electronics subsystems and full system;

• Requirements definition and management

• Risk analysis (FMEA)

• Supplier management

 

Candidate profile

 

You have a master’s degree or PhD in electronics, or equivalent engineering and relevant industry experience, preferably with active implantable medical devices.

• You are a generalist, with extensive experience in design processes and manufacturing of electronic devices;

• You are familiar with IEC-60601 compliance, requirements derived from it and testing accordingly.

• You have solid electronics design and system testing experience within a controlled process;

INTERNSHIP: CLINICAL SCIENTIST “ANATOMY, IMAGING AND PATIENT SPECIFIC

3D MODELING OF THE SPINE”

 

Candidate Challenge

 

One of the key elements of our neurostimulator is the development of a new electrode array for improved epidural stimulation of the spinal cord which will allow space- & timing specific stimulation of the afferent nerve roots in the spine. Your main objective will be to work within the RESTORE project team, a scientific EU consortium in which GTX is a partner. This RESTORE project aims to develop a patient specific 3D computer model to 1) simulate and optimize the electrode array design for development, 2.) to develop a pre-surgical planning tool. GTX is the project manager of this project, and is responsible to facilitate system integration and practical implementation of these new solutions. In addition, GTX’s task within the project is to make a personalized model of the spine to test electrode array, which strongly depends on acquiring solid anatomical and imaging (MRI and CT) input of the human lumbar spine. This input comes from literature, clinical testing and imaging analysis.

The main objectives and learning during the internship will be to:

1. Develop a database on spine anatomical variability based on literature, and MRI data.

2. Assist in development, implementation and analysis of a dedicated clinical MRI spine imaging protocol (collaboration with UMC Utrecht and the STIMO study.)

3. Work on segmentation of clinical imaging data to create 3D patient models

4. Investigate methods to evaluate changes in spine anatomy due to position change (lying, sitting, standing)

 

As this internship has a dynamic character, fully in line with the start-up spirit, the tasks within this internship can be broader, and you will have the opportunity to be involved also with other clinical scientific tasks that pop up during your internship period. The internship will be based at the office in Eindhoven. Minimal duration is 6 months.

 

 

Candidate Profile

 

 Background in (Technical) Medicine, Human-movement sciences, Bio (Mechanical)engineering and/or Neuroprosthetics.

 A strong interest in medical device development in an industrial environment

 Experience with clinical & scientific literature review and data collection

 A flexible team player

 Experience with MRI and CT image interpretation and processing are a plus

 Experience with programming in MATLAB, Python, SPSS or R (or similar) is a plus

 

If you interested to work in an enthusiastic and multi-disciplinary team that has the goal to make paralyzed people walk again, please send your CV + short motivation (max 300 words) to Maryse van ‘t Klooster (clinical scientist), maryse.van.t.klooster@gtxmedical.com, +31 40 288 2830.
