Research Fellow in Non-invasive Sensor Circuits and Systems for Biomedical Applications

University of Westminster - Faculty of Science and Technology (Department of Engineering)

Cavendish Site, Central London

Interested in research in the state of the art Electronics for Non-invasive Sensor Circuits and Systems for Biomedical Applications?

This is a 12 month full-time post and the successful candidate will join the Applied DSP and VLSI Research Group (ADVRG) with a reputation in Electronics research in the Department of Engineering in the heart of London. The Department is host to a suite of well- established undergraduate (BEng, MEng, BSc) and postgraduate (MSc) courses and PhD programmes for both full-time and part-time students.

This is an immediate opening for a research fellow in the area of non-invasive sensor circuits and systems for biomedical applications. The research fellow will support the ongoing research activity in this area at the Applied DSP and VLSI Research Group, which is on the design and prototyping of non-invasive novel sensor circuits and systems to be deployed in the cross-disciplinary area of biomedical diagnosis applications. Moreover, the research fellow will lead and support the writing of future research proposals in this field.

The successful candidate must hold a PhD in electronics engineering (or in related areas) and have applied research experience with publications in the areas of digital electronics, communications, and their software/hardware implementation and test. The candidate must have a good understanding in both the theoretical and practical aspects of digital signal processing, RF/Microwave circuit, optical circuit and sensor design, analog circuit design and optical measurement setups for biomedical applications.

The candidate must have programming experience in Matlab and C/C++. Experience in RF/Microwave structure simulation using appropriate tools such as Keysight ADS and CST Microwave Studio. Experience in 3D CAD modelling tools (AutoCAD/Inventor) would be an advantage. Skills in practical build and test in software as well as hardware, and experience with digital and analog design and prototype implementation will be an advantage.

The appointee will work as part of a team of academics, researchers, students (undergraduate and postgraduate) and technicians as well as liaising with external collaborators/partners to deliver the outcomes.

For an informal discussion on the post please contact: Professor Izzet Kale, Head, Department of Engineering at or telephone 020 7911 5083/5157.

Interviews are likely to be held on: Wednesday 14 December 2016
