Job Description

At Stryker, we are revolutionizing the way orthopaedic implants are designed and implanted with industry leading modeling, simulation, statistical analysis, machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies, which perfectly complement Stryker’s industry leading positions in both MAKO robotic-arm assisted surgery and additive manufacturing technology.  We are now seeking a highly motivated engineer to apply and develop innovative simulation methodologies to characterize and optimize next generation implant designs, processes, and materials, as part of an expanding Modeling and Simulation team.  The applicant must be able to demonstrate an ability to execute the following functions:

  • Perform detailed literature searches to provide a basis for analytical methods and assumptions.
  • Execute static and dynamic nonlinear multi-body finite element analyses that include deformable contact, advanced material properties, and multi-physics required for realistic simulation of in vivo kinematics and manufacturing processes.
  • Develop new techniques and implement automation using custom programming when required.
  • Evaluate analytical results and recommend design, process, or material changes based on characterization.
  • Develop and validate analytical models to gain further insight in research related issues.
  • Demonstrate refined technical report writing and external publication writing skills.  Author reports necessary for 510(k) submission, abstracts to orthopaedic industry related conferences, and articles for peer reviewed journals.
  • Contribute on cross-functional teams to develop next generation technologies and devices.
