Supervisor name: Silvia Muceli

Deadline: 02/10/22

The division of Signal Processing and Biomedical Engineering at the Department of Electrical Engineering (Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden) is recruiting a qualified candidate for a Postdoctoral position.

The project consists in investigating motor control in healthy individuals and individuals with motor impairment through advanced signal processing algorithms for EMG decomposition applied to high-density electromyographic signals recorded from multiple muscles during movement. Through the identification of motor neuron spike trains during voluntary contractions, this research is expected to contribute to the identification of biomarkers for detection and assessment of motor impairment, and monitoring of the rehabilitation process.

The project builds upon previous work on the development of innovative detection systems for electromyography and you will also be involved in testing novel electrodes and optimizing the design of new electrodes through EMG modeling. In this role, you will join a research group that provides a stimulating, pleasant and flexible work environment for developing research and teaching, and you will also collaborate with clinicians.
