Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Biomedical Engineering (Pupillometry)

University of Oxford - Department of Engineering Science, Institute of Biomedical Engineering

Location: Oxford Street
Salary: £33,309 to £40,927
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 12th May 2022
Closes: 6th June 2022
Job Ref: 153321

We are seeking a full-time Postdoctoral Research Assistant to join the Oxygen research group at the Department of Engineering Science (IBME, Headington).  This full-time post is funded by EPSRC and is fixed-term until 31 May 2024. This is a joint project in collaboration with Dr. Manuel Spitschan (Department of Experimental Psychology).

This role will entail collecting and analysing pupillometry data from healthy volunteers using a comprehensive battery of visual stimuli varying in intensity, wavelength and temporal waveform using a novel, cutting-edge visual stimulation system. Visual stimulation protocols are optimised to target the different photoreceptors in the human eye, i.e. cones, rods, and melanopsin, with high specificity. The pupillometry data will be combined with neuroimaging and physiological data using machine learning approaches to determine a minimal data set and analysis algorithm for diagnosing specific cerebrovascular impairments in patient populations (including Alzheimer’s disease)

You will hold a PhD (or be near completion) in a relevant field (e.g. visual neuroscience, experimental psychology, engineering) and have experience with pupillometry or similar physiological measurements, time-series analysis, filtering and modelling of physiological data. Experience with machine learning and programming in Matlab, Python, or C++ would be beneficial, as well as experience with developing and using prototype devices and hardware.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Prof Bulte (email: daniel.bulte@eng.ox.ac.uk)

For more information about working at the Department, see:  www.eng.ox.ac.uk/about/work-with-us/

Only online applications received before 12.00 noon on Monday, 6 June 2022 can be considered. You will be required to upload a covering letter/supporting statement, including a brief statement of research interests (describing how past experience fits with the advertised position), CV and the details of two referees as part of your online application.

The Department holds an Athena Swan Bronze award, highlighting its commitment to promoting women in Science, Engineering and Technology.
