Post Doc Position in the Development of Wearable Devices for the Monitoring of the Status of the Patient and the Implementation of Biofeedback

IIT - Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia

Genoa, Italy

The aim of this project is to develop novel wearable devices and processing algorithms that can return useful information for either the feedback control or for monitoring the status of the patient in real time. These algorithms will process the data coming from e.g. EMG, pressure, oximeters, etc. to return valuable information on fatigue, position/orientation, health of the patient so that the device or clinician can counteract accordingly. The devices and the estimation/sensor fusion algorithms developed will be tested on elder patients and patients with pathologies such as SCI, stroke, and amputated subjects.

The project will be carried out at the Rehab Technologies Lab of IIT. It will be a technological challenge in which the Rehab Technologies team will share resources, competencies and motivation to achieve excellent results transferable to the medical field.

We are looking for a highly motivated, outstanding candidate with the following profile:

  • A solid background in controls/biomedical/electronics engineering, with focus on wearable devices
  • PhD in related field
  • Publication record showing evidence of strong expertise in the field, or relevant industrial experience

During this period, the postdoctoral researcher will develop the following skills and experience:

  • Autonomously analyze the requirements of complex wearable devices depending on the application
  • Develop sensing hardware
  • Assemble networks of sensors
  • Work in a real-world scenario by operating with both engineers and clinicians
  • Develop a solid background in sensory systems for medical applications
