Job Details:
This position is open to a Sr. Research engineer or a Research Engineer. The manager will determine the level at which they hire for.

The BioRobotics Core Laboratory is seeking a full-time research engineer to join our highly motivated and dynamic group. The successful candidate will demonstrate strong interpersonal skills and a desire to apply multidisciplinary engineering skills (biomedical, mechanical, software, and electrical) to the aims of the laboratory and our clients. She/he will be expected to perform robotic testing of cadaveric joints and biological tissues in order to evaluate surgical techniques and medical devices. In addition, they will develop software for robotic systems, assist with training, and disseminate research through publications and conference presentations.

The BioRobotics Core Laboratory is within the Lerner Research Institute and Orthopaedic and Rheumatologic Institute of the Cleveland Clinic. The Cleveland Clinic is consistently rated as one of the top 5 hospitals in the country, and the Departments of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rheumatology are both ranked within the top 5 in their disciplines by the U.S. News and World Report. The BioRobotics Core Laboratory, a center of excellence for biomechanical testing of biological structures and biomaterials, is affiliated with the Department of Biomedical Engineering which is the largest of eleven highly interactive departments in the Lerner Research Institute, and encourages innovation and translation of its technologies into the clinical arena. The candidate will have the exciting opportunity to perform multidisciplinary research with world class surgeons and scientists, as well as facilitate and build upon the existing research programs.
