“Postdoctoral position in Non Invasive EMG Control of Hand Prosthetics” We seek to advance the dexterity of upper limb prostheses. We are particularly interested in addressing this issue non-invasively using state of the art surface multi-channel EMG recording techniques. Candidates should have a PhD degree in biomedical engineering, bioengineering, electrical engineering, or a closely related discipline. A strong signal processing background is required and experience with EMG recordings is desired. Candidates should have a well-defined ICT track-record in the areas of experimental signal design (preferably bio-signals), signal processing and pattern recognition, algorithms design and implementation, and interactive database design and construction. With a developing research record, the successful candidate will be able to demonstrate her/his ability to disseminate results and prepare research proposals.
