Senior Electrical Engineer Microwave/RF Design

NeuSpera Medical is seeking a Senior RF/ Microwave Electrical Engineer with a deep understanding of electromagnetic and RF theory and hands-on knowledge to take a wireless technology from concept to production. 

The project includes the development of highly efficient microwave devices for communication and power transfer to devices within the body. 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 planar microwave structures and communication circuits. Furthermore, the candidate should have knowledge of regulatory issues surrounding microwave devices and have some exposure to EMI/EMC testing. The ideal candidate should therefore be skilled at and enjoy working with computer simulation tools, prototyping design concepts, and performing characterization and debug using RF measurement instrumentation.
