Senior Engineer – Machine Design and Fabrication

3DBio Therapeutics is a biologics and bioprinting company with a focus on regenerative medicine that precision manufactures living tissues to allow replacement of each individual patient’s parts with tissues designed and created specifically for them. 3DBio has developed unique capabilities toward the creation of living tissue implants for therapeutic applications. The technology platforms include a full suite of features to meet the FDA’s requirements for therapeutic manufacturing, including novel and proprietary: 3D-bioprinter (GMPrint™), bio-ink (ColVivo™), and cell processes. In pre-clinical studies the platform has demonstrated the ability to generate functioning living tissues.

The Engineer will be responsible, as part of an engineering team, for the design and implementation of mechanical systems for multi-axes 3D printing robots. The 3D printers being developed will be suitable for research & development and clinical grade manufacturing of 3D Bio’s regenerative medicine therapeutic products. The Engineer will also contribute to research, design, manufacture, assembly, and installation of testing fixtures and machines such as those that simulate body forces or movement.

Responsibilities:

  • Apply engineering knowledge and experience to help design 3D Bioprinters and test fixtures and machines
  • Collaborate with the engineering team to help solve design problems for multiaxial 3D printers
  • Machine prototype parts to support prototype builds
  • Create mechanical drawings for machine parts and mechanical assemblies
  • Implement prototype evaluations specification testing
  • Build, test, and validate new prototype parts, subsystems, and full systems
  • Work within a cross-discipline team that includes biologists, chemical engineers, manufacturing technicians, and QA/QC personnel

Requirements:

  • BS or MS degree in mechanical engineering or a related field plus 5 years of experience in machine design
