Job Description Summary

Mechanical Engineer responsible for the structural design and analysis of Superconducting magnets for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) at GE Healthcare. This role will work with cross-functional teams to design, develop, manufacture and service complex state-of-the-art MRI systems and components throughout all phases of the product development life cycle. Activities include detailed mechanical, structural, and thermodynamic design of sub-systems and components related to MRI magnets, including analysis, simulation, documentation, prototyping, testing, verification, and integration of hardware.

Job Description

Roles and Responsibilities

  • Mechanical and Structural design and analysis of superconducting magnets and components used in MRI systems

  • Participate and lead prototype build activities to ensure compliance with design intent

  • Design leadership of productivity projects (both product cost and life cycle quality or reliability improvements)

  • Support current MR system installed base designs and field issues and drive to closure on site issues and investigations.

  • Work from product specifications and requirements to develop component and assembly geometry, specify materials, and establish acceptable performance standards. Perform complex calculations, analyses, and testing to verify assumptions and performance.

  • Work independently and possess a level of engineering competency necessary to complete and execute engineering project tasks with minimal oversight.

  • Seek senior and peer review of project and engineering work to ensure accuracy and rigor. Candidate must be willing to work in an open environment where review and feedback on engineering work is actively sought and freely given.
