A Postdoctoral Fellowship is available in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of British Columbia (UBC), Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
The candidate will conduct innovative research with investigators in the Departments of Electrical & Computer Engineering and Anesthesiology, Pharmacology & Therapeutics (APT) at the University of British Columbia (UBC), and Department of Anesthesia at British Columbia Children's Hospital in the field of biophotonics hardware design and signal processing with a focus on near infrared spectrometry (NIRS) and other light-through-tissue sensing technologies.
The candidate will join the Electrical and Computer Engineering in Medicine (ECEM - http://ecem.ece.ubc.ca/) research team. ECEM is a unique collaboration of engineers, computer scientists, psychologists and clinicians focused on performing innovative research at the interface between technology and patient care. Our vision is to enhance patient-centered care using innovation in technologies and treatments.
Qualified candidates are encouraged to apply to NSERC Canada postdoctoral scholarships, and for successful NSERC awardees, a top up may be given based on their qualifications. Fellowship funding is provided for up to 2 years.
The candidate will be an academic researcher having degrees in electrical engineering, computer engineering, or biomedical engineering with a strong background in biophotonics hardware and signal processing. Preference will be given to applicants with experience in design and development of real-time signal processing algorithms for biophotonics. The candidate will have a strong research background and demonstrated teamwork, resourcefulness, and problem solving. Experience working in the medical and/or healthcare field, and knowledge of respiratory/cardiac signals are assets.
Anticipated start date is September 1, 2015. Applications will be reviewed until the position is filled. Interested candidates should send (preferably via email) a cover letter, and curriculum vitae to:
