The Biomedical Systems Laboratory ( has an Australian Postgraduate Award Industry (APAI) scholarship available for one student to pursue a full time PhD degree and participate in a project supported by the Australian Research Council (ARC) and Telemedcare Pty Ltd. The research area is on the development of novel techniques for analysing and modelling biomedical signals to extract parameters for early diagnosis of critical illness in human (such as heart diseases), with potential application in the emergency department. Of particular interest is the beat-to-beat change exhibited in heart rate variability (HRV) and the arterial pulse waveform. We specifically look for applicants with strong background in mathematics and signal processing; good programming skills in Matlab or Labview; interest in physiology and clinical studies, frequency domain / time series analysis, nonlinear dynamics, statistical signal processing and data mining.
