Electronics Design Engineer Oxford £38k-48k + benefits
This is an opportunity for a proven electronics design engineer to join an expanding engineering company in Oxford. My client is involved with the development of an innovative & ground breaking DNA sequencing system. The product design combines self-contained instruments with embedded computers, mechanical, electronic, thermal control & precision mechanisms interfacing with a disposable cartridge containing fluidic & sensor components. The product development team spans a range of disciplines, including Molecular Engineering, Optical Sensor Development, & Systems Hardware integration.
They require an engineer with a strong electronics hardware design engineering background & broad knowledge ideally in scientific instrumentation or medical devices to join the team and aid with the concept design and development of new and existing systems. Typically each engineer takes responsibility for the whole system from initial concepts through to verification release to manufacture.
Although the products are biomedical / medical related, the company will consider applicants from other industry sectors (e.g. automotive, avionics, aerospace, machinery, robotics, telecoms, network comms, etc) Initially you will be involved with the design and development of a control board involving management of thermal control, actuators and pumps, data acquisition, and communications / PCI. This will require both FPGA design as well as analogue and digital circuit design.
Also they are looking to take initial microprocessor based designs and simulate these within an FPGA. Candidate will be working within a small R&D team and therefore a good team ethic, good communications skills and an approachable attitude and flexibility would be preferred.
Note - The majority of the role will involve FPGA design (VHDL / RTL) followed by analogue / digital board design & practical board bring up, test and evaluation in the lab.
Skills / Knowledge:
Ideally a degree or equivalent in a relevant subject (e.g. electronics engineering) HNC/HND considered
FPGA design (nice to have)
Proven electronics circuit / PCB design ability (analogue and digital)
Use of appropriate simulation,synthesis tools and design tools - e.g. matlab, quartus, maxplus, hyperlynx, synplify, modelsim, cadence, mentor, orcad etc)
Knowledge of some of the following - thermal management, DAQ, actuators / pumps, motor drives, and / or electromechanical systems, high speed serial comms would be useful
Able to display innovative and creative design ability
Also display a flair for problem solving as well as a practical approach leading to stable & easily manufactured designs
Aid procurement & manufacturing engineers to release final products
This position would suit a creative, proven engineer from industry sectors such as medical devices, scientific instrumentation, biomedical systems
