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
