Ethicon, Inc., R&D Co-op - Cincinnati, OH(Job Number: 00000OOK)


The Ethicon Surgical Care business, a part of the Johnson & Johnson family of companies, is recruiting for an R&D Co-op, located in Cincinnati, OH.

The Ethicon Surgical Care business offers a broad range of products, platforms and technologies-including sutures, surgical staplers, clip appliers, trocars and synthetic mesh devices-that are used in a wide variety of minimally invasive and open surgical procedures. Specialties include support for treatment of colorectal and thoracic conditions, women's health conditions, hernias, cancer and obesity. The Ethicon Surgical Care business combines products and services of two market leading legacy companies, both with long histories of medical innovation. Ethicon, Inc. based in Somerville, New Jersey, was founded more than 80 years ago as a pioneer in suture development and manufacturing, helping to transform the safety and electiveness of open surgery. Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Inc. was created 20 years ago in Cincinnati, Ohio, developing innovative devices that have driven the revolutionary shift from open to minimally invasive surgery that continues to lead the industry today.

As a co-op in the R&D department, you will have the opportunity to use state of the art tools and take advantage of training courses offered on-site. You will be assigned to a specific product team to perform testing, experimentation and validation to support product design. Responsibilities will increase with each rotation as you learn more by returning to school. Rotations are generally 6 months and availability for multiple rotations is desired. We offer a competitive wage and subsidized, furnished housing for non-local students.

As an R&D Co-op, you will contribute to design solution activity through utilization of previously learned skills with CAD tools, simulation tools, fundamental engineering principles, and expert guidance from seasoned Team Engineers. You will also receive anatomy training, which includes application to instrument design as it relates to surgical procedures; and you will assist in developing laboratory testing, interpreting data results, and recommending next steps. Many of the R&D Co-ops receive intermediate CAD training, if applicable, including building simulation models, developing kinematics models, and performing stack-up analysis.

The R&D Co-op program provides each student with a great support system, as well as the opportunity to meet people from various schools throughout the country. We also offer a housing option for students who need to relocate for the duration of the co-op.


In order to be eligible for a R&D Co-op position, candidates must be enrolled in an accredited college/institution pursuing a Bachelors or Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering or a related field. Only students in their second year or above will be considered.

Candidate must be considered a student during the desired co-op session(s) (i.e. will not have already graduated college). A minimum GPA of 3.0 is strongly preferred, with demonstrated leadership/participation in campus programs and/or community service activities. Students must be authorized to work in the United States and not require sponsorship in the future.
