What makes Boston Scientific Neuromodulation so special?
Boston Scientific Neuromodulation business is the recognized leading innovator of microelectronic technologies that modulate neural activity to treat chronic disabling disorders, including spinal cord stimulation for the treatment of chronic pain and deep brain stimulation for Parkinsons disease, essential tremor and dystonia. Today, we are developing breakthrough technologies and new indications to help those suffering from neurological disorders, including migraine headaches and depression, among others. Join a dynamic global organization that is fueled by the diversity and best in class talent of its entire workforce.
A significant challenge for patients with neurological disorders implanted with active devices is their ability to safely receive MRI scans. Neuromodulation devices can have a variety of interactions with MRI equipment and demonstrating how to safely scan these devices are an important, complex and interesting technical challenge. In this role the candidate will have the opportunity to learn and develop a broad understanding of the implantable neurostimulation devices and evaluate them under these MRI interactions. While there is a large amount of knowledge and expertise in this area in Boston Scientific Neuromodulation, MRI compatibility is one of the current active research areas for most medical devices. Therefore, there are a lot of opportunities to develop and test the next generation implantable devices and learn more about MRI compatibility.
The candidate is expected to work independently and as part of this very well regarded R and D team. No previous expertise in MRI is required for the role, but a desire to learn about it is.
Duties and Responsibilities
:Leads or participates on project teams to develop clear product specifications of next generation neurostimulators to ensure they are compatible for safe use in MRI condition.
:Innovate new approaches and evaluate feasibility of concepts for implantable neurostimulation devices and MRI tests.
:Generally understands MRI scanners and various electromagnetic fields generated by them.
:Develops understanding on how human tissue and Active Implantable Medical Device System respond to the various electromagnetic fields from MRI scanners
:Develops understanding on the limits and thresholds (thermal, electromagnetic, force, etc.) of the various tissues involved in interactions between MRI and Active Implantable Medical Devices.
:Designs and Develops test strategies and test methods for the next generation neurostimulators to determine their safe use in MRI scanners, including rationales and predictions for in:vivo performance.
:Design or assist in specifying mechanical and electrical test fixtures as needed for evaluating prototypes.
:Defines and executes preclinical testing including protocol development.
:Bachelors Degree in Electrical and Electronic
