Biomedical Engineer £25-30k Neg. Oxford 3 months (paid accommodation) then London or Birmingham.
We partner with clinicians, healthcare providers and academics to identify new applications of 3D technologies and provide a variety of patient specific 3D printed products to reduce operational costs and enhance patient care. The products include anatomical models, surgical guides, implants and simulators specializing in a variety of surgical disciplines including: Orthopaedic, Cranio-maxilla facial, Cardiology and Paediatric.
The company offers hospitals the opportunity of setting up an embedded commercial 3D printing facility. Using our embedded services, hospitals experience the dual advantage of avoiding capex investment in the hardware, software and talent necessary to set up a 3D printing facility, while benefitting from having the service immediately available in-house for close working and quick turnaround for best patient outcomes.
Biomedical Engineer required to help us handle the increase in demand for our services in the UK. Meeting this demand requires someone with a unique blend of skills, all of which are essential to ensure the clinicians we work with, and their patients, receive the best service from us.
Your anatomical knowledge should be substantial enough to comprehend medical scans and build incredibly accurate representative models. Your segmentation skills should be able to handle complex scans and image interference. Your proficiency with 3D printing technology would see you comfortable working with, and repairing if necessary, anything from a simple desktop printer to more advanced 3D
technology. Your communication skills would enable you to work side by side with clinicians of all levels and departments, while your project management ability would ensure all projects are delivered on time.
We need someone who can work independently to deliver a wide range of patient specific anatomical models, surgical guides and other medical devices to the high standard required by clinicians and regulatory bodies. At the same time, you would be able to work smoothly with our other hub engineers across the country as demand required.
• Using off-the-shelf medical segmentation software applications, extracting areas of interest from medical images to create 3D models for client projects
• Developing custom 3D models using standard CAD modelling software applications
• Collaborate closely with clinicians to design the exact models and devices required
• Printing of medical devices on a range of 3D printers in different materials
• Conducting post-processing and finishing of devices
• Maintaining and repairing your hubs 3D printers as and when required
• Developing new business opportunities within the hub hospital and other surrounding regional institutions
• Project managing a high number of device orders from different clinicians and institutions
• Networking locally and nationally
• At least 1 year’s experience of professional level biomedical engineering or other engineering / medical background (essential)
• A high level of anatomical knowledge (essential)
• Prior experience in medical segmentation using standard off-the-shelf medical segmentation software applications (essential)
• 3D printing experience and technical ability (preferred but not essential)
• Superb communication skills and ability to work closely with clinicians
• Strong project management ability
For the first 3 months, the candidate will be based in Oxford while undergoing training and supervision with our Head of Engineering. Temporary accommodation costs (e.g. AirBnB) during this period will be covered by the company.
After this period, the role is most likely to be based either in North London or Birmingham (TBC). We do seek candidates with the flexibility to relocate to a new city for this role.
Please note that this role may involve travel around the region to visit satellite hospitals or institutions such as universities.
Travel to national and international conferences and industry events may also be expected as part of your role as Biomedical Engineer.
A prerequisite for the role, is that you must have the legal right to live and work in the UK.
Working around Covid-19
Typically, our biomedical engineer roles are hospital based, in one of our embedded hubs. A key part of the work involves meeting clinicians from different departments in the host hospital and those surrounding.
Understandably, Covid-19 measures over the last year have meant meetings are now carried out virtually for the most part, as we comply with each trust’s safety measures and ensure all our staff are as safe as possible while the pandemic continues.
We hope that as the vaccination rollout continues, we will be able to return to our normal working ways and travel levels by the end of the year.
Competitive salary based on experience. Our performance-based bonus scheme offers up to 12% of the candidate’s salary, paid quarterly.
A laptop for work will also be provided.
