Job Opportunity: Engineering Position


We have an opening for a recent graduate engineer to work on a hands-on clinical engineering project. The project involves system design and integration, interfacing between an RFDI reader and Kinect, programming in C#, building and installing a fully functioning system in a hospital unit, and testing and troubleshooting.

The installment needs to be perfect and work seamlessly for over a year in a hospital setting; so we are looking for someone with “handy” experience (HW, electrical, drilling, mounting, etc.), programming experience (C#), and the commitment and dedication to see a project from start to end. You should be able to work well both independently, e.g. find and read documentations and be able to sort out HW and SW problems on your own. You should also feel comfortable working in a hospital environment, interacting with clinical staff, and improving design requirements based their feedback.

Toronto Rehab is the largest rehabilitation hospital in Canada and is the number one rehabilitation research center in the world. Multidisciplinary work experience is a plus, but this could also be an ideal position for a hands-on recent graduate who wants to apply her/his knowledge to solve practical problems in healthcare.

Clinical engineering students with internship experience are encouraged to apply. We also welcome applicants from other engineering programs (biomedical/electrical/mechanical) at BSc or MSc levels. Applicants must be able to legally work in Canada.

The nominal start date is June 15th, 2016. There is no official closing date and applications will be reviewed as they are received. To apply, submit your resume, names and contacts of three references, and a cover letter explaining your experience in hands on projects. Submit your documents to Dr. Babak Taati. Please include [Engineer AMBIENT] in the subject line. Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.
