Postdoctoral Researchers on biomedical engineering are urgently required to participate in the Call “Beatriu de Pinos postdoctoral fellowship”. The candidate will work at the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC, www.upc.edu) in Barcelona.

We are looking for candidates expert on biomedical signal recording and processing such as EEG and EMG. Signal recording, instrumentation and electronics background will be also valuated. Experience in neurosciences (brain connectivity, cerebral networks, and brain sources) or neuromuscular function and rehabilitation based on EMG is required. The candidate will participate in a project to evaluate upper arm rehabilitation of stroke patients using data fusion of EEG and high density surface EMG. An experimental protocol will be prepared and carried out in a clinical trial.

The candidates will join the BIOART Group (bioart.upc.edu) which belongs to the Biomedical Engineering Research Center (www.creb.upc.edu) from the UPC.  The candidate will find a very active environment with other engineers and PhD members to develop his/her career with collaboration with other international and national groups and hospitals. A postdoc contract for 3 years with additional funds (12.000 Keuros) for his/her research is offered. Other benefits: participation in national and international research projects with opportunities to attend conferences, to continue publishing in high impact journals, to lead research proposals and studies, to supervise students etc.

The BIOART Group coordinates several projects funded by European (in the H2020 and Marie Curie frameworks), National (from the Spanish Minister) and Regional Governments.

Application period is very short until 28th February, 2019.
