 PhD position: Biomedical Signal Processing, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden

In neurointensive care several biomedical signals are monitored.
Particularly blood pressure and intracranial pressure (ICP) are
important signals when treating patients with severe brain injury. An
elevated ICP poses a danger to the patient and requires medical or
surgical treatment. The project is aimed to further develop the signal
analysis as well as investigate new sensing technologies with the goal
to improve the diagnostic support. The work will consist of a
combination of theoretical signal modeling, signal processing method
development and clinical studies of neurointensive care patients.

The project is conducted in close cooperation with Sahlgrenska
Universitetssjukhuset and is funded by the Swedish Research Council.

As a Ph.D. student you will perform research, study Ph.D. courses and
participate in undergraduate education. You will also attend
international conferences and meetings. Applicants should have a
Masters degree in Engineering (or similar competence) with interests in
model-based signal processing. The objective of a Doctoral Studentship
is to obtain a Ph.D. degree, with the intermediate goal to obtain the
degree of Licentiate of Engineering. The time period for the position
is limited to five years. We encourage women to apply.
