If you have experience in the following areas and are interested in playing a
role in developing next-generation surgical robots, then please contact us
about this position!

Hands-on experience analyzing, developing, testing and tuning feedback
control systems for dynamic multi-degree-of-freedom serial-link
Hands-on experience with manipulator kinematic analysis and dynamic systems
Hands-on experience with redundantly-actuated mechanisms and methods for
optimizing the workspace and dynamics of such mechanisms.
As a System Analyst, you will be responsible for the analysis of new
instrument designs, characterization of prototypes and performance tuning of
the motor and drive train that actuates the instruments and the detailed
implementation of control algorithms and safety systems for new surgical
instruments. This responsibility includes integration and evaluation of
fully functional prototypes including formal product testing.  You will also
provide analytic assistance to other engineering groups to help in the
design of mechanisms, software algorithms architecture, and key component
selection (processors, sensors, motors, etc.).  You will work very closely
with mechanical design engineers and clinical engineers in evaluating the
instrument performance mechanically as well as clinically. You will write
and provide to other engineers productivity tools to evaluate instrument
performance which help guide design and development efforts across the team.
You will also work to establish and develop manufacturing process as it
related to instrument motion performance. Responsibilities for development
continue until the products are shipping to customers with the highest
quality and reliability. 

-Masters in EE or ME with experience in control aspects of mechatronic
systems or PhD in control of mechatronic systems..
-Possess strong Matlab, embedded C programming capabilities as well as
hardware, software, and mechanism integration skills.  Knowledge of Python
would be a plus. Knowledge of electrical and mechanical design principles
and CAD tools a plus.
-Understand and have experience implementing standard and modern servo
control systems.
