Optomechanical RESEARCHER - Profile: mechanical engineer

Internal reference number: 170901


As part of the optomechanical design team, you will be responsible for the mechanical design and integration of sometimes very complex optic and electronic systems requiring a high degree of accuracy in a research and development or mini-series context. You will work with multidisciplinary teams on a variety of projects as a mechanics specialist. You will design 3D parts using parametric modelling software, make numerical calculations and put your expertise to work on the optomechanical, structural, vibrational and thermal aspects. You may be asked to coordinate specialized human resources in mechanical engineering for projects and to participate in report writing, technical presentations and work evaluations.


  • You hold a bachelor’s degree or master’s degree in mechanical engineering
  • You are a member of the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec
  • You have a minimum of five years of relevant experience in system design involving optics, optomechanics, precision engineering or microfabrication technologies
  • You have excellent knowledge of Creo software
  • You are skilled in using finite element analysis software (e.g., ANSYS)
  • You have a thorough understanding of the production process for mechanical systems, including DFMA (Design for Manufacturing and Assembly) techniques
  • You are fluent in English and French, both spoken and written
  • You are familiar with the principles of geometric tolerancing
  • You have basic knowledge of one of the following specialities (considered an asset):
    • Use of adhesives (application technique, stress prediction, selection)
    • Design of military and aerospace systems
    • Design of motorized actuators and mechanisms
    • Different industrial standards (such as MIL-STD-810, RoHS, UL)
    • Biomechanics
    • Design of sterilized systems


Imagine working on the prototype of an instrument for the International Space Station. Picture yourself as part of a talented team in a high-tech environment where ideas come to life!
