Postdoctoral Researcher in Signal Processing

University of Oxford

John Radcliffe Hospital, Headington, Oxford

Grade 7: £31,604 - £38,833 with a discretionary range to £42,418 p.a.

An exciting new opportunity has arisen for an outstanding researcher to join our established project team at the newly created Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging (WIN) at the University of Oxford. The successful candidate will develop and implement a new electroencephalographic (EEG) depth of anaesthesia monitor that harnesses an individualised biomarker of perception loss called slow wave activity saturation (SWAS). The post will be based primarily at the Centre for Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Brain (FMRIB), and is funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC) Development Pathway Funding Scheme.

We are looking to appoint an outstanding, highly-motivated candidate with an excellent academic track-record in developing and applying signal processing methods to real-time data. The post holder will become a key member of the SWAS research team (headed by Dr Katie Warnaby) and will lead software development and implementation of a prototype EEG monitoring system.

You will have a PhD/DPhil in a relevant discipline, and possess sufficient specialist knowledge to work within established research programme. Experience of EEG data analysis and developing real-time brain-computer and graphic user interfaces is desirable. Further details are included in the job description.

The post is full-time for a fixed-term of 24 months, subject to completion of the MRC project milestones.

Only applications received before 12.00 midday on 29 January 2018 will be considered.

Interviews will be held as soon as possible thereafter
