R&D Internship M/W

CorWave is looking for several interns starting July/August 2019 in the following fields: Mechanical, Electronical, Simulation and Biomedical Engineering.

Working in an English-speaking and fast-paced environment, you will assist the R&D team charged with the responsibility for development of sub-systems of the CorWave LVAD, including requirements, design, testing, simulation and embedded system as part of a rigorous quality system.

Your tasks will cover different aspects of our cross-disciplinary R&D program ranging from design engineering to biological interfaces, use of software tools and materials selection. It could include for example:

Mechanical

  • Design and Simulation using the latest CAD tools
  • Review of literature and other source materials to determine industry best practices
  • Development of requirements, specifications, test protocols and reports to document your work
  • Design of surgical components and tools, optimization of actuator and pump head design
  • Research and development of new testing methods leveraging basic physics and fundamental research
  • Implement new ideas and concepts with 3D-printed, rapid prototyping, and other rapid production processes

Electronical

  • Test set-up, automation and analysis using tools such as Labview and Matlab
  • Development of the pump controller and advanced control algorithms
  • Review of literature and other source materials to determine industry best practices
  • Development of requirements, specifications, test protocols and reports to document your work
  • Research and development of new testing methods leveraging basic physics and fundamental research
  • Implementation of a control and monitoring system (electronics and software) for implantable blood pumps

Simulation

  • Modelling, analyzing and improving the pump membrane via simulation software and in-vitro tests
  • Review of literature and other source materials to determine industry best practices
  • Development of requirements, specifications, test protocols and reports to document your work
  • Research and development of new testing methods leveraging basic physics and fundamental research

Biomedical

  • Review of literature and other source materials to determine industry best practice
  • Development of requirements, specifications, test protocols and reports to document your work
  • Coordination of pre-clinical and clinical experiments
  • Improvement and maintenance of automated hydrodynamic, blood interface and durability bench tests
  • Research and development of new testing methods leveraging basic physics and fundamental research

The subject of the internship will be defined after the interviews.

Qualifications

We are looking for motivated, dynamic and curious engineer students. You will work in a multicultural environment that requires a good level of both written and oral English. Skills in the field of medical devices (acquired during studies or during another internship) will be highly appreciated but not required.

The successful candidate will be hard-working, autonomous, team oriented, and driven by a positive attitude.  Flexibility to work in a start-up environment, requiring lean, efficient use of resources are required for success in this position.

Offer and Application

  • Starting date: August/July 2019
  • Duration: 6 months (Minimum 5 months)
  • Compensation: 700€ + “Titre-restaurants” + 2 days of rest/month
  • Location: Clichy-Levallois / Metro line 13, train L
