Postdoc in Brain Computer Interface for Neurorehabilitation of Stroke Patients

Applicants are invited to apply for a postdoctoral associate position in signal processing at Technical University of Denmark, Denmark. Potential candidates should apply before February 15, 2019.

DTU Health Tech is an interdisciplinary department which delivers technology that affects public health and well-being. "Digital Health" is one of the key research groups at the department of Health Technology where we expertise in pervasive computing, bioinformatics, signal processing, precision and predictive medicine, personalized health, wearables, supercomputing solutions for big omicsdata, and genomics.

A 2-year postdoctoral research position is available with the Digital Health group at the Department of Health Technology, Technical University of Denmark (DTU) on "Brain Computer Interface (BCI) Controlled Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) as a Complete Neurorehabilitation Tool for Post-Stroke Patients". The main focus of the project will be to design and investigate the competency of BCI controlled FES as a neurofeedback mechanism in enhancing the rehabilitation process to regain optimal motor function of the fingers of stroke patients left with hand paresis/paralysis.

In this project, a BCI controlled FES system is proposed as a complete neuro-rehabilitation tool for post-stroke patients to regain fine motor skills in the fingers so that the hand gripping function can be triggered. An inexpensive portable neuro-rehabilitating training system is envisioned which can potentially cause neural plasticity and improvement in the motor skills. The method will be based on controlling a FES device attached on the affected arm, using the EEGs of the patients.

All interested candidates irrespective of age, gender, disability, race, religion or ethnic background are encouraged to apply.
