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
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 , firstname.lastname@example.org).
