Lumendo is a Medtech startup and a Spin-off from ETH Zürich and EPFL Lausanne. We develop injectable, photopolymerizable implants and the necessary accessory devices for application in dentistry, orthopedic and neurosurgery. We are looking for scientist or engineer to help us turn our first prototype into a real product.
Due to its complex structure, root canal treatments are amongst the most difficult procedures in dentistry. The current tools available to dentists are special files but these often fail to properly clean the intricate root canal system and result in a failure rate of up to 50%. Our goal is to improve this approach by developing a novel cleaning system that cleans far more effectively in less time.
You will be responsible for the technical development and testing our medical device prototype. This will include designing and building of prototypes as well running some fluid dynamics simulations. Furthermore, you will assist the team in setting up the pre-clinical as well as clinical testing of the prototype. This will give you the chance to interact with researchers from different fields, clinicians and regulatory experts relevant to development of the medical device.
