Applicants are invited for a postdoctoral position in the field of
neural engineering with the focus on functional electrical stimulation.
The successful applicant will perform research in the fields of
electrical stimulation, animal in vivo experiments, signal processing,
and programming, in the frame of the European project TIME.
The particular goal of the project is the evaluation of selective
electrical stimulation strategies. The postdoctoral scientist will
contribute to study the possibility to select specific neural fibers
within a nerve by controlling stimulation profiles and using different
types of electrode designs. He/she will collaborate within an
interdisciplinary team of researchers whose expertise spans computer
science, microelectronics, automatic control and neurophysiology with
the goal of performing selective electrical peripheral stimulation.
The ideal candidate will have a doctoral degree, or equivalent, in
Biomedical Engineering with an emphasis on Neurophysiology. Programming
will be part of the project. Candidates with the experience in ENG
recording and analysis and / or FES will be preferred.
The work will be performed at the Robotics Lab of Montpellier (LIRMM,
Montpellier, France) in the Research Group DEMAR. The work is within an
ongoing collaboration with UAB, Barcelona, Spain and will imply frequent
traveling to Barcelona for short stays in order to perform animal
