Research Associate Wearable Sensors For Stroke Rehabilitation Jobs Vacancy at Imperial College London London Jobs Details:

Fixed Term appointment for up to 6 months

South Kensington Campus

The Medical Engineering Group wishes to appoint a Research Associate to conduct research into robotics and artificial limbs at Imperial College London.

The Biomechatronics Laboratory at Imperial College London is recruiting candidates for a 9-month research post in wearable sensors for stroke rehabilitation to begin immediately (Oct 2017-June 2018). This project represents an exciting opportunity for a motivated researcher wishing to work at the interface of translational academic-industrial research in wearable medical monitoring systems and robotics. Longer term opportunities could be available through planned commercialization activity and ongoing research at the close of the project.

Project Description

The candidate will join an extension to an ongoing project, Mechanical Muscle Activity with Real-time Kinematics (M-MARK): A novel combination and application of existing technology designed to improve arm recovery following stroke, to develop a low-cost wearable wireless device that stroke patients can use independently at home while practicing standardized everyday activities to regain upper limb function. It will measure quality and quantity of movement and provide feedback to both patients and therapists. It will combine movement and muscle activity via mechanomyography (MMG). Please see figure 1 in the job description for a depiction of the proposed system.

A researcher with a strong background in physiological signal processing and inertial motion analysis is sought to lead refinement and testing of the sensor system with stroke patients. The applicants should have a Masters or PhD, or be near to completion (or equivalent) in Computer Science, Mechatronics or Robotics or a closely related discipline.

*Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range £32,380 - £34,040 per annum.
