Software Developer (Imaging & System Integration)
The Focused Ultrasound Laboratory at the Sunnybrook Research Institute, located at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, in Toronto, Ontario is looking for a motivated and serious individual to fill the role of Software Developer. Focused ultrasound is changing the way that surgery is performed by allowing treatment of tumours and other diseases without ever making an incision. Focused ultrasound was listed as one of the Top 50 Inventions by Time Magazine (Nov, 2011), and was presented at TedMed in October, 2011.

Our group is one of the leading laboratories in the world in the development of highly innovative, leading-edge technology for completely non-invasive image-guided surgery and targeted drug delivery using focused ultrasound. We are involved in a broad spectrum of projects ranging from technology development, modelling of ultrasound-tissue interactions, and evaluation of novel devices and delivery strategies in tissues and animal models. The technology being developed in our group will be used to treat benign or malignant tumours and a variety of neurological disorders non-invasively. Many of these projects are conducted with close collaboration with the medical device industry. The imaging research at Sunnybrook has spun off 7 companies in the past 5 years, and is a hotbed for innovation.
This research lab has a truly multi-disciplinary team of individuals with backgrounds in physics, engineering, biology, and medicine. The clinical relevance of this work is high, and the pace of research is fast. This is an excellent environment for a motivated individual interested in the field of medical technology and biomedical engineering to gain valuable skills and experience.
A temporary fulltime software engineer is required to convert the experimental software to a clinical grade software and to further develop the user interface and the new imaging features in the software.
Specific responsibilities include:
Design/develop test and validate ultrasound imaging software
Interfacing software with hardware
Development of a clinical user interface to comply with FDA guidelines
Participating in the preparation of figures and material for grants and publications
Document testing procedures and ensure rigorous UA/QA testing to comply with FDA regulations for software in medical devices
Collaborate with designated personnel to develop various Computer Systems Validation (CSV) documents per FDA guidance (General Principles of Software Validation), including but not limited to Requirements Specifications, Validation/Test Plan, Testing (across all phases of Development), Integration Test Scripts, Operational/System Test Scripts, Validation Summary Reports
Ensure completeness and accuracy of software validation records
Work with team to manage development of integrated system
Undergraduate degree in Software Engineering/Computer Science
other Engineering/Science with strong programming experience
Software engineering experience in a medical device/FDA or similar regulated industry preferred
Strong experimental and programming skills with demonstrated experience in interfacing equipment with computers
Familiarity with laboratory equipment and techniques
Experience in ultrasound imaging is a benefit, but not a requirement
Strong object-oriented programming experience
Interface development experience;
Ability to maintain a code repository with well-organized version control
Experience in software testing, verification, and validation, including an understanding of test tools and methods, test documentation, test management, test traceability, defect management and tracking is required.
Extensive experience in defining test strategy, designing and developing test cases from software requirements
Experience or working knowledge of testing medical devices, FDA/GMP requirements, software development life cycle, design control processes, and cross-functional product development team experience.
Prior successful testing and validation of medical products through full life cycle strongly preferred.
Excellent writing skills and strong attention to detail
