    From: Jimmy Abbas
    Organization: University of Kentucky
    Subject: job posting - biomedical engineer

    Full-time Position Available: Engineer in Biomedical Research Lab

    Position: Biomedical Research Engineer

    Location: Neural Control Laboratory
    Center for Biomedical Engineering
    University of Kentucky
    Lexington, KY 40506-0070

    Primary Responsibilities:
    experiments on human subjects
    (rehabilitation engineering/motor control)
    software development
    (computer simulations and real-time control)

    B.S. in Biomedical Engineering (or related field),
    demonstrated software skills, and/or
    experience performing experiments on human subjects
    AND 2 years related experience, or equivalent.
    (M.S. would be desired)

    The Neural Control Laboratory is primarily directed at the design and
    evaluation of systems to restore control of posture and movement to
    individuals with neuromotor disorders. The research program focuses on
    the development of controllers for systems that utilize electrical
    stimulation to activate paralyzed muscles. Research projects typically
    involve experiments on human subjects in conjunction with extensive
    computer simulation studies. The Laboratory is currently involved in
    research projects funded by The National Institutes of Health , The
    Whitaker Foundation and The University of Kentucky.

    Responsibilities for the position of Biomedical Research Engineer will
    include software/programming tasks (e.g. programming in Labview, C/C++
    or Matlab, computer simulations using biomechanical models and neural
    network controllers, real-time control system/data processing software
    development, Unix workstation management), experiments on human subjects
    (e.g. perform experiments aimed at evaluating control system
    performance, analyze experimental data, write reports), hardware tasks
    (e.g. maintain and/or develop instrumentation for sensor signal
    processing and neuromuscular stimulation), and laboratory management
    tasks (ordering equipment and supplies, documentation, equipment

    Qualified applicants would have a B.S. or M.S in Biomedical Engineering
    or a related field, demonstrated software skills (e.g. programming in C,
    C++, Matlab, Labview; Unix system experience), hardware skills
    (bio-instrumentation and associated circuitry), and/or experience
    performing experiments on human subjects (e.g. rehabilitation
    engineering/assistive technology assessment, motor control experiments).
