As a Senior Mechanical Product Engineer you will design cutting edge commercial instrumentation using SolidWorks. You will have familiarity with getting components fabricated from either 3D model or 2D dimensioned drawings. You will be intimately familiar with GD&T. Ideally you will have good relationships with machine shops in the area and elsewhere. The successful candidate will be able to take the project from the concept stage through to completion. You will have strong familiarity with developing products using product lifecycle management (PLM) tools. In addition, you will be detail-oriented and passionate about process for making things run correctly and smoothly. You will also be hands-on in the lab and actively participate in assembling the complex mech - optoelectronic and microfluidic components into a functioning flow cytometer. This will require debugging skills and ability to run applications or scripts to control mechanical hardware, including motors and stages, and air and fluid lines.
