In the context of an ERC Consolidator Grant recently awarded, the Biomedical Electronics Research Group (BERG) of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona is seeking candidates for a postdoctoral position to carry out research on electronic design of neuroprosthetic systems based on injectable electronic implants.

 

The project to be supported by the ERC Consolidator Grant is titled “Electronic AXONs: wireless microstimulators based on electronic rectification of epidermically applied currents” (eAXON) and it is intended to explore an innovative method for implementing neuroprosthetic systems based on injectable microstimulators.

Candidates should hold a PhD degree in electronics engineering, or a related engineering discipline, and have an excellent scientific-technical background in biomedical electronics, particularly in portable or implantable biomedical electronic systems. Ample experience in analogue and digital electronics is required. Experience in power electronics will be considered very positively. The project will involve the development of an ASIC by an external design house; a background in microelectronics or experience designing ASICs at system level will be considered very positively. In addition, experience in the following areas will be positively valued (not in order of preference): electrical stimulation, animal experimentation, FEM simulations, micromachining, encapsulation of implants, electrical safety and electromagnetic compatibility standards and electronic packaging and connection technologies.

Additional comments

If interested, please apply by sending an email to randp.dtic@upf.edu with a motivation letter, your curriculum vitae and the contact details of three references as a single pdf. Please indicate the reference number eAXON-PD1 in the subject.
