  • Ph.D. Studentship Announcement

    The Center for Sensory-Motor Interaction, Aalborg University, Denmark seeks
    qualified applicants for a position within the field of neural engineering
    and neural-electric interfaces

    A 3 year Ph.D studentship is available as part of a Danish Technical
    Research Council funded project to research, develop and evaluate a flexible
    thin-film penetrating electrode as a selective inter-neural interface
    capable of providing long-term electrode access for neuroscience and
    neuroprosthetics, which may one day restore function to spinal cord injury
    patients. The electrode will be implemented using thin-film techniques
    developed for the electronics semiconductor industry to produce mechanically
    flexible yet durable implanted electrode structures. The project is
    multi-disciplinary in nature and requires a candidate with broad interests
    in the technical and biological sciences.

    The successful applicant will work as part of a collaborative effort between
    the Center for Sensory-Motor Interaction in Denmark, and the Fraunhofer
    Institute for Biomedical Engineering in Germany. The effort will involve
    work in thin-film microfabrication of devices for biomedical applications,
    development of computation models, signal processing, and basic
    neurophysiological studies in the animal model. The position is open
    immediately (April 2001).

    The applicant should have a background in electrical/biomedical engineering,
    physics or motor control physiology. Applicants with a background in the
    technical sciences should have an interest in basic motor physiology.
    Applicants with a background in the biological sciences should have an
    interest in electrical engineering and signal processing. Proficiency in
    written and oral English is required. Citizenship in the European Union or
    of EU associated states is preferred but not required.

    Applicants should send a formal letter of application, curriculum vita and
    two letters of reference to Assistant Professor Ken Yoshida. For further
    information about salary, working conditions, or the Ph.D. program at
    Aalborg University, contact administrator Peter Thonning Olesen

    The Center for Sensory-Motor Interaction (SMI) was established in 1993 by
    the Danish National Research Foundation and Aalborg University as a
    multidisciplinary center for the study basic and clinical aspects of human
    sensory-motor interaction, and the development of methods to restore
    impaired sensory-motor functions. Research at the center is carried out
    within three inter-related areas: Motor Control, Sensory Systems, and
    Rehabilitation Technology. SMI is located on the campus of Aalborg
    University and is an academic center within the Faculty of Engineering
    Science. In 1999, the center had 35 researchers, technicians and
    administrative personnel, and Ph.D. 35 students. With half of the students
    and staff coming from abroad, the center has an international flavour and
    provides an excellent opportunity to work with people coming from around the
