The Medical Devices and Mechanical Systems (MDMS) Group brings medical and mechanical concepts from idea to reality. The MDMS group provides mechanical engineering support for research and product development projects that require medical or mechanical engineering expertise, as well as offers leadership for engineering focused projects. MDMS group members are skilled in mechanical engineering and design and typically have a degree in a related engineering field.
The Mechanical Engineer Project Manager Consultant will be responsible for managing major projects within the MDMS group at IV Lab. The successful candidate will be comfortable working both independently and leading multi-disciplinary projects involving 8-10 brilliant colleagues in a collaborative environment of engineers and scientists. The Mechanical Engineer Project Manager will manage a budget, schedule, performance requirements and communicate progress and review the work of peers. The successful candidate will demonstrate the ability to think creatively and to operate within a flexible, fast-paced development program dedicated to converting advanced research into real-world functional solutions.
