The work will be performed within the research division Micro- and Nanosystems (MNS) in collaboration with the STADIUS-BIOMED lab at the Electrical Engineering Department (ESAT) at KU Leuven, Europe’s most innovative university (Reuters, 2018). MNS comprises about 30 researchers (postdocs, PhD students and technicians) from eleven different countries and is led by Prof. Michael Kraft. MNS offers a dynamic, thriving and interdisciplinary environment and works on a wide portfolio of research projects, including high-precision physical microsensors, resonant based sensors, bio-medical and biochemical sensors, neuro-probes, energy harvesting, micromachined ultrasound transducers and interface circuits for micro-devices. The MNS core laboratory is the 450 m^2 cleanroom in the KU Leuven Nanocentre (see https://www.esat.kuleuven.be/mns/labs) which hosts more than 30 state-of-the-art tools for micro- and nanofabrication and an active user base of more than 90 researchers. The project involves a close collaboration with the STADIUS-BIOMED group at the same department (https://www.esat.kuleuven.be/stadius/research.php?view=BioMed).
This job opening covers a research position (1 or 2 years) for a postdoctoral or senior researcher in the frame of an ERC project on next-generation wearable neuro-technology and neuro-sensor networks. The candidate will take the lead in the discrete electronic design of a highly miniaturized and low-power wireless EEG sensor node, as well as the validation and integration within a brain-computer interface use case. For the latter, the candidate will interact with PhD researchers working on software/hardware aspects within the ERC project, and will have the opportunity to coordinate the integration process towards a working prototype.
Candidates should have a strong expertise in electronic design, as well as experience with the recording of weak electrophysiological signals (preferably for EEG, although this is not a strict requirement).
Additional research/development experience in any of the following topics is a plus:
Candidates should be motivated, independent, critical, and should have strong team-player skills. Excellent proficiency in the English language is also required, as well as good communication skills, both oral and written.
Interested applicants should submit a motivation letter with a statement why this project fits with your expertise, a curriculum vitae, the names and contact information of 2 references.
Please do not postpone submitting your application until the deadline. Applications are continuously monitored, and it could be that the vacancy closes before its end date if a candidate has been found.
For more information please contact Prof. dr. Michael Kraft, tel.: +32 16 37 37 56, mail: email@example.com or Prof. dr. ir. Alexander Bertrand, tel.: +32 16 32 18 99, mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can apply for this job no later than January 31, 2022 via the online application tool
