Postdoc Position, Bioengineering Inst, New Zealand

Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Auckland Bioengineering Institute 
We have funding for a postdoctoral fellow to work on novel signal 
processing tools for analysing the spatio-temporal charactistics of 
electrical activity during atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation 
is the most common form of heart rhythm disturbance and electrical 
activity is mapped clinically to identify regions of the atria that 
give rise to it. Preliminary studies at the Auckland Bioengineering 
Institute (ABI) indicate that combination of 3D real-time atrial 
electrical mapping with wavelet decomposition provides a particularly 
effective approach to the problem of substrate identification in 
atrial fibrillation. 
This post will suit someone who has recently completed a PhD, has 
experience in advanced signal processing methods and wishes to apply 
this in biomedical research. The successful candidate will work with 
Dr. Jichao Zhao as part of a research group in the ABI and the Faculty 
of Medical Health Sciences, that is led by Prof. Bruce Smaill. The 
post is initially for 12 months, but extension for up to a further one 
or two years is possible. 
Specific requirements: A Ph.D. in Engineering, Mathematics or Physics 
with a strong background in digital signal processing (frequency 
domain and wavelet approaches) and a strong background in computer 
programming (eg, C/C++, Matlab). 
If you have any queries in relation to this position, contact Dr 
Jichao Zhao ( 0064-9 923 6505 ,
