OFFER DESCRIPTION

In the context of a research project funded by an ERC Consolidator Grant, the Biomedical Electronics Research Group (BERG) of Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona is seeking candidates to carry out construction and testing activities for miniature electronic devices (implant prototypes).

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 restore 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 junior engineer (or engineering student) for collaborating in the fabrication of implant prototypes. In addition, the engineer and engineering student will design and implement mechanical test benches for those prototypes. Candidates must be proactive engineers or engineering students, preferably within the field of biomedical engineering.

Experience in designing and implementing robotic or mechatronic systems is required. Experience in using 3D printers will be considered very positively. Experience in fabricating small elements (e.g. as a hobby) will also be considered very positively.

The job requires manually mounting very small components (<1 mm). Find out more information on the research group at http://berg.upf.edu/
