In the context of two research projects funded by the European Commission (an ERC Consolidator Grant and a Research and Innovation Action), the Biomedical Electronics Research Group (BERG) of Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona is seeking candidates to carry out research on bioelectric phenomena.

We want to develop and demonstrate wireless networks of implants capable of stimulating the muscles and recording their activity. Potentially, among other fields of application, this technology will be used to recover motor functions in patients who suffer from paralysis. The implants will look like short pieces of flexible thread and will be injectable. These features will be possible because the power supply methods used so far in active implants (e.g. batteries and inductive coupling) will be replaced by an innovative power transfer method.

Now we are seeking for a researcher responsible for performing computer simulations on two bioelectric phenomena related to the project: volume conduction in living tissues and electrical stimulation.

Candidates must be experienced proactive engineers or physicists with demonstrable research experience. Possession of a PhD degree is a requirement. Significant experience in bioelectric simulations through numerical tools is also a requirement (+ 3 years postgraduate). Experience using COMSOL Multiphysics will be considered very positively. A background in biomedical engineering (e.g. a MSc or BSc) will also be considered very positively. In addition, experience in the following areas and topics will be positively valued (not in order of preference): electrical stimulation, in vitro experimentation, electroporation and MATLAB.
