Associate Electrical Engineer

Luna Labs

 Luna Labs is seeking an Electrical Engineer that is eager to apply their background to a diverse set of biomedical/mechatronic applications. The candidate will be responsible for designing, prototyping, and testing electrical systems.

The candidate will be able to independently develop and perform early-stage design and prototyping tasks while collaborating with a team in a variety of biotechnology programs in the medical device, wearable sensor, human interfacing/performance, and diagnostic device fields.

The Biotech Group at Luna Labs focuses on developing solutions for critical technical challenges in human interfacing, human performance, and diagnostics, such as a smart life preserver unit to assist rotary aircrew in water-survival situations, high-dimensionality AR/VR tools to enhance simulated reality, and wearable hydration monitors to reduce physiologic episodes throughout long duration missions.

Key Responsibilities

  • Assist in development and transition of electrical/mechatronic systems from development to product
  • Supports early product development through relevant literature reviews and designing/producing prototype sensor and electro-mechanical systems
  • Assists in concept development and leads device prototyping efforts including identification and selection of relevant hardware and integrating into working prototypes
  • Executes directed experimentation and validation testing for prototype devices for a range of established and growing biophysics and diagnostic programs
  • Produces experimental or simulation results and summarizes data independently
  • Utilizes current technology developed at Luna Labs to accomplish tasks on projects and to solve complex technical problems

Experience and Qualifications
