The Department of Physics invite applications for a Research Associate (G7) in bio-electronic to design and test adaptive neural networks which will form the core of intelligent cardiac pacemakers.  Bachelor/Master level candidates with suitable technical skills will also be considered for the position at Research Assistant level (G6). 

The role will require transferring adaptive models into neural circuits and testing their performance. You will conduct a range of experiments to optimise these models using simulated physiological signals and in-vivo. You will have responsibility for integrating and testing the neural chips embedded within the pacemaker board and testing the chips in a range of environments.  The work will take place within a H2020 multi-partner multi-disciplinary consortium and will provide frequent opportunities for working jointly with physicists, physiologists, engineers and medical teams.

The aim of the consortium will be to provide much needed therapy for cardiorespiratory disease. By restoring heart rate adaptation and natural heart rate variability, the project will make a significant contribution to extending patients’ lives and improving patients’ quality of life.

The position is offered for a fixed-term period until December 2022.

Applicants with a PhD in Physics or Electrical Engineering are encouraged to apply for the Research Associate position. Exceptional candidates without a PhD will also be considered for a Research Assistant position.
