The Electrical Engineer will liaise with engineers and scientists at different levels deploying new electrical/electronic systems. The Engineer will also manage technical documentation on the projects according to ISO 13485-quality management system, requirements.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities:

Provide technical input, produce and examine drawings, written specifications and wiring diagrams at all stages in the project from the concept through to full manufacturing, installation, commissioning and support.

Demonstrate good knowledge of power electronic components and circuits including AC/DC and DC/DC converters, filters, voltage and current transducers, high and low power electrical components, transformers, magnets and power semiconductors.

Support the projects with confident knowledge of electrical hardware designed for EMC, temperature, safety and reliability of continuous operation. Understand high voltage concepts including electric stresses, insulation and breakdowns, earth ground referenced and other potential referenced systems.

Basic integration of electrical systems and measurements with control and data acquisition subsystems (based on LabVIEW and Allen-Bradley PLCs).

Keep the project documentation up-to-date in line with ISO 13485-quality management system for the specifications and designs.

Interface with electrical, mechanical engineers and physicists developing experimental and custom systems.

Required Skills:

Required: B.S. Electrical Engineering

Experience working with high voltage or high current electrical systems in industrial or laboratory environment.

CAD proficiency required: Solidworks Electrical (preferred), Altium for schematic capture and PCB layout (optional).

Practical awareness of NFPA 70, good understanding of recommended electrical practices. Ability to understand engineering drawings, circuit diagrams and specification sheets.

Strong electrical/electronic and electro-mechanical laboratory and trouble shooting skills.

Experience working with IEC, ANSI, UL and IEEE electrical engineering standards and ISO 13485 or ISO 9001 quality management system.

Technical Experience (Equipment, tools, etc.)

Sound knowledge of electrical/electronic components and common laboratory instrumentation.

Electrical hardware design, installation and commissioning experience.

Software Knowledge and Skills:

Practical literacy in MS Word, Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint.

Working knowledge of Solidworks Electrical or AutoCAD Electrical, CAD systems for capturing schematics and PCB layout, and any industrialelectrical system simulation software.
