753BR Mechanical Engineer, Robotics & Medical Systems

The Robotics and Medical Systems Program at SRI International is seeking a
mechanical engineer with a background in robotics. 

You will join a team of some of the brightest roboticists in the world
generating key innovations that enable robotic systems to do more: more
quickly, more efficiently, more safely and more economically. As a research
engineer at SRI Robotics, you will work on a variety of projects that could
include highly dexterous tele-manipulation, human power augmentation
systems, a new full humanoid platform, renewable energy, medical devices and
micro-robotics.

Our team is driven to aggressively expand the positive impact of robotic
platforms on society.  We diligently monitor and target application
opportunities in commercial and consumer markets, and we have a track record
of spinning out successful companies and technologies into the marketplace.

Responsibilities:
Design from scratch functionally elegant mechanical and electromechanical
systems and subsystems.
Evaluate new designs through analysis (e.g. kinematic, dynamic, power,
efficiency, thermal, manufacturability, etc) and through rapid prototyping.
Acquire hardware and rapidly build functional and aesthetic prototypes using
state-of-the-art prototyping techniques and workflows.

Requirements
--You probably have a MS or PhD in mechanical engineering, or related
robotics degree with a primary focus on hardware design.
--You have extensive experience in designing, prototyping, and evaluating
articulating mechanical systems.
--You are enthusiastic about robotics, and are able to clearly convey your
ideas to peers and the world at large.
--You are comfortable working on several of the hardest problems in robotics
at the same time. You thrive on the lack of clear answers at the outset of
ambitious projects, and look forward to finding that clarity and
articulating it to others.
  
Nice to Haves:
-Experience with medical device design.
-Experience with robotic drivetrain design.
-Experience with sensor and motor selection.
-A track record of documented original ideas (patents, novel designs,
publications, etc.).
*Selected candidates will be asked to provide a portfolio of example work
that demonstrates creative and thorough mechanical design.

Other Requirements
--U.S. Permanent Resident status required.
