Job Description

When you're part of the team at Thermo Fisher Scientific, you'll do important work, like helping customers in finding cures for cancer, protecting the environment or making sure our food is safe. Your work will have real-world impact, and you'll be supported in achieving your career goals.

The Electrical Design Engineer is responsible for the design and integration of control electronics which will be used in systems that emulate effects of the electrostatic discharge (ESD) on semiconductors or the electromagnetic interference (EMI) on any type of operational equipment. These products are complex electro- or electro-mechanical systems that are able to simulate electromagnetic pulses produced by either static electricity discharges or running the type of machinery that introduces unwanted disturbances into typical electrical circuits. The system elements under electronic control include: complex charge/discharge circuitry tailored to various types of electromagnetic pulses; waveform-shaping networks based on RLC-filters; high voltage supplies; high speed source measure units and power amplifiers; data imaging and mechanical positioning systems.

Key Duties & Responsibilities

    Design, integrate, test, and debug electronic controls for new Component Reliability (CR) and Electromagnetic Compliance (EMC) products using internal phase gate processConduct system-level configuration of electronics architectures using analog and digital circuit designWorking closely with Sales and Marketing develop and design innovative and unique solutions to the company's line of CR/EMC testersResponding in a timely manner to application engineering requests made by Sales or Marketing to design new features and provide improvements to the existing products.
  • Debug and troubleshoot existing electronic designs including hands-on debug activities such as noise suppression and grounding schemes
  • Provide expert consultations for any requests made by the current and/or prospective customers Provide timely engineering support for the internal manufacturing, field service and quality groupsSpecify and document projects from concept through release to manufacturingProvide complete engineering drawings, specifications and other technical documentation necessary for successful product introductionsInterfacing directly with external vendors provide comprehensive documentation that would support the production and deployment of new or next-generation systems5-15% travel to key customers may be required
  • Other duties as assigned
