Research Associate

Posted: June 16, 2012

A Research Associate position is available in the Neural Engineering Center of the Biomedical Engineering dept at CWRU. The Research associate will be involved in a DARPA-funded project to interface peripheral nerve with electrodes. The candidate is expected to develop the hardware and software required for the data acquisition of signals for both animal and human experiments, validate the recordings with computer models, work with other experimenters to extract information from the nerve, report the results in peer reviewed scientific journals and to collaborate with other researchers in the Center. The preferred candidate should have a PhD in biomedical or electrical engineering, be proficient in the design and implementation and circuits to interface with the neural tissue and signal processing of neural signals. He/She will also demonstrate critical thinking, excellent organizational and communication skills, and will be motivated to pursue a career in research.

Interested candidates should send their CV, a statement of research interests and career plans, and contact information for three references to Dr. Dominique Durand,
