Senior Electrical Engineer Electromagnetic/RF Design

NeuSpera Medical is seeking a Senior Electrical Engineer or Scientist with a deep understanding of electromagnetic theory and hands-on knowledge to take a wireless technology from concept to production. The project includes the development of antennas for on-body and in-body devices, with a special focus on maintaining power transfer efficiency employing tunable field patterns within human tissues. At the same time, unwanted RF exposure of the tissue surrounding the antenna and the resulting energy loss shall be minimized. The candidate should be comfortable with design, simulation, prototyping, and measurement of electrically small antennas. Furthermore, the candidate should have knowledge of regulatory issues surrounding electromagnetic interaction with biological models. The ideal candidate should therefore be skilled at and enjoy working with computer simulation tools and RF measurement instrumentation.
