Research Associate in Bioimpedance Instrumentation and Imaging - Reference 1744634

Senors, Systems and Circuits Group
Salary : UCL Grade 7 - £35,328 - £42,701 per annum (inclusive of London Allowance of £3031 per annum)

Duties and Responsibilities
As part of our work in Healthcare Engineering, the UCL Electronic & Electrical Engineering, Senors, Systems and Circuits Group, invites applications for a postdoctoral research position in Bioimpedance Instrumentation and Imaging. Bioimpedance measurements are used in numerous clinical applications. We would like to develop a bioimpedance based imaging tool to assist in surgery and are looking for a talented postdoctoral researcher to join our team and help us fulfill the project's goals, producing quality research. The work will involve design, implementation, testing and publishing high quality research papers in high-ranked conferences and journals. The successful candidate will work within an established research team in the Sensors Systems and Circuits Group led by Professors Andreas Demosthenous.
The main purpose of the job will be to develop a microchip for high-resolution real-time imaging using electrical impedance tomography as well as to develop a computational model of a human organ. Based on this model, the aim will be to create software that communicates with the microchip to provide real-time images for surgical guidance to assist the insertion of an electrode in the organ.
 
The position is available from the 1st September 2018 for a period of 16 months or until the end of February 2020, depending on when the successful applicant starts. Further funding to support the post may be available.
Key Requirements
Applicants should have a PhD (or be about to submit) in Electronic Engineering, Biomedical Engineering or a related discipline). Applicants should also have a very good knowledge of analogue or mixed-signal integrated circuit design techniques and of using Cadence software for the design of integrated circuits.Good knowledge of appropriate modelling software (Comsol or Ansys) is desirable.
 
If the successful candidate has not yet been awarded their PhD, appointment will be made at Research Assistant (Grade 6B). Payment at Grade 7 will be backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis including corrections, once the PhD has been awarded. Research Assistant Grade 6B Point 24 - 26 salary range is £30,316 - £31,967 (including London Allowance of £3031 per annum).
