Niusheng, Application Engineer


We work with the most advanced technologies to design and build the equipment, instrumentation and tools that are shaping science. As a group that includes some of the smartest, most dedicated professionals you’ll find anywhere, we innovate on a wide variety of important projects, from consumables to very large complex instrumentation.

Our roles include electrical, mechanical, systems, fluidics, chemical, and industrial engineering—to name just a few. Whatever opportunity fits you, at Thermo Fisher Scientific, you’ll be empowered to innovate. With many of our instruments, we combine technologies that have never been combined before, so you’ll truly be at the forefront of your field.

Our professionals enjoy the collaboration between the business and the engineering function during the product lifecycle. The environment at Thermo Fisher allows professionals to interact in ways that bring out the best in everyone. That means you’ll have the opportunity to connect with R&D, marketing, sales, operations and senior leadership. Our cross-functional teamwork is a big reason we are able to produce products that are best in class.

Your career path in engineering can go in many different directions. You can move across into another engineering discipline, or move up the management chain leading larger and more complex projects as you go, eventually moving up to senior levels in the organization. Some of our most senior leaders have come up through the engineering path. You could also move up the ladder on an individual contributor track that mirrors the management track.

Our engineering professionals need technical ability, but we also look for those who are willing to try new things and aren’t afraid to fail. We want engineers who have the ability to imagine “What if…?”
