Job announcement now follows:

Biomedical Engineering/ Electrical Engineering

Position: POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW/ RESEARCH ASSOCIATE

Organization: Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago/ Northwestern University

Location: Chicago, Illinois/Evanston, Illinois

Deadline: 05/15/01

We seek a postdoctoral fellow/ research associate to work on
experimental and computer modeling of EEG/ functional MRI signals
with the goal of studying motor cortical organization in healthy and
brain injured subjects. These studies will be performed in the
Sensory Motor Performance Program (SMPP); a multidisciplinary
research laboratory with facilities in the Rehabilitation Institute
of Chicago; in the Northwestern University Computational
Electromagnetics Laboratory and Northwestern Universities' MRI center.

Applicants should have a doctoral degree in biomedical engineering,
electrical engineering or a related engineering discipline, and a
strong background in mathematical modeling and signal analysis (such
as image processing skills) and C/C++ programming abilities. The
planned research involves continuing the development and validation
of novel signal source estimation computer models using EEG signals
recorded with our state-of-the-art 128 channels Neuroscan setup.

The applicant will have the opportunity to manage human experiments
in addition to learning advanced computational electromagnetics and
novel source localization approaches. Furthermore, the applicant
will get involved in brain imaging research not only using high
resolution EEG (128 channels) but also using functional MRI. The
possibility of clinical exposure is also available. Finally, the
applicant will benefit from mentorship of a diverse research team
including: Julius Dewald, Ph.D., PT, a motor control neuroscientist
and clinician; Allen Taflove, Ph.D., a leader in the field of
computational electromagnetics; Todd Parrish, Ph.D., a biophysicist
with expertise in fMRI-neuroimaging and image processing, Yasin
Dhaher, Ph.D., a biomedical engineer with a strong background in
signal analysis and system identification and Todd Kuiken, M.D.,
Ph.D., a biomedical engineer and physiatrist with research interests
in bioelectrical signal propagation.

Salary is negotiable and will be based on experience. It will be at a
competitive engineering research associate level.

Applicants should send a letter, curriculum vitae, the names,
addresses and email addresses of at least three references to:
Julius P.A. Dewald, P.T., PhD
Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, Rm 1406
345 East Superior St, Chicago, Illinois, 60611.

apply. The RIC is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.
Hiring is contingent upon eligibility to work in the United States.
