Postdoc Position in Neural Engineering
A Postdoctoral or Visiting Scholar position in the University of Rhode Island,
Biomedical Engineering is available starting as soon as possible.
Salary: Commensurate with experience
Responsibilities: The Postdoctoral or Visiting Scholar will be a primary contributor to
Dr. Besio’s Neurorehab Laboratory in the Department of Electrical, Computer, and
Biomedical Engineering at the University of Rhode Island, and collaborate with Drs.
Mankodiya and Kennedy. S/he will help develop, integrate, and maintain an advanced
electroencephalography and functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) system
including signal processing algorithms. The candidate will use the system to acquire
clinical epilepsy data and perform analysis for source localization. This position requires
hands-on-experience developing biomedical instrumentation.
Primary areas of interest include: (1) analog circuit design and signal acquisition, (2)
experience with fNIRS hardware prototyping, (3) electrode fabrication, (4) integration of
sensors and electronics into a wearable garment, (5) wireless data transmission, and (6)
human experiments (not in particular order of preference). The successful Postdoctoral
Candidate or Visiting Scholar will join a team of signal processing and hardware design
faculty, neurologists, and neuroscientists currently dedicated to this project.
Required qualifications: minimum of Ph.D., or equivalent degree in electrical
engineering, biomedical engineering or closely related field; course work or research
experience (publications a plus) in one of the areas of interest.
Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
Candidates should describe previous experience, skills, as well as name and contact
information for two references to: Dr. Besio at firstname.lastname@example.org (Email applications are
preferred). Website: http://egr.uri.edu/neurorehabilitationlab/
The University of Rhode Island is a principal public research and graduate institution in
the state of Rhode Island and an equal opportunity employer. The College of Engineering
will soon have a new building with new facilities. The University is located conveniently
to Boston and New York City.
