We are seeking an enthusiastic student to complete a PhD with the research topic focusing on neonatal EEG and time-frequency signal analysis and processing. The broad research topic includes EEG abnormality detection, artefact removal, neonatal brain modelling, and source localization. The successful appointee will conduct EEG signal analysis under the support and supervision and work collaboratively with engineering and clinical experts in the related field.
Applicants should hold a degree of M.Sc. or B.E. (Hons) in Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering or other relevant areas, or an equivalent combination of relevant experience and/or education/training. You should also have demonstrated knowledge in signal analysis, Matlab programming skills, good academic writing abilities, and the capacity to work in a multidisciplinary research team.
In partnership with the Queensland Government and major US Philanthropic organisation Atlantic Philanthropies, The University of Queensland has developed the $70 million UQ Centre for Clinical Research (UQCCR) at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH). Focused on improving people’s lives through patient-orientated research, UQCCR offers state-of-the-art facilities and brings together leading health professionals, clinicians and scientists from around the globe. By ‘patient-orientated research’ we mean research that is conducted in response to questions that arise at the bedside. This allows us to provide better treatment and results for patients, as well as adding to the body of knowledge about particular diseases or problems. The specific research target is to more effectively treat newborn brain injury and prevent conditions such as cerebral palsy.
