Research Assistant/ Research Associate

Imperial College London is delighted to offer a postdoc position. This fellowship is available for all students around the world. The deadline for applying is September 19, 2018.

The Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London is leading the bioengineering agenda both nationally and internationally, advancing the frontiers of our knowledge in the discipline's three main areas: Biomedical Engineering (Developing devices, techniques and interventions for human health), Biological Engineering (Solving problems related to the life sciences and their applications for health), Biomimetics (Using the structures and functions of living organisms as models for the design and engineering of materials and machines). The Department's staff comes from diverse academic disciplines including all main branches of engineering, physical sciences, life sciences and medicine, creating a rich collaborative environment. Housed in substantial purpose-built space within the historic Royal School of Mines and its adjacent Bessemer buildings, the Department boasts state-of-the-art laboratories, including 'wet labs' for cell culture, chemistry, histology, flow studies, biosensors and electrophysiology, biomaterials, molecular biology, and high throughput biological screening; as well as 'dry labs' for modelling, electronics, imaging and mechanics. The space has been designed to promote greater interaction among researchers - just what is needed for the interdisciplinary field that is modern bioengineering.

The role of the person appointed with this position will be the establishment of activities within myocontrol of active upper limb prostheses. This implies the design of closed-loop control systems, the integration of hardware and software for clinical testing, design of experimental protocols in patients and healthy individuals.
