The work will be performed within the research division STADIUS ('Stadius Centre for Dynamical Systems, Signal Processing, and Data Analytics') at the Department of Electrical Engineering (ESAT) at KU Leuven, Europe’s most innovative university (Reuters, 2018). STADIUS's major research objective is to contribute to the development of improved digital (control and signal processing) systems that incorporate advanced mathematical modeling techniques as a crucial new ingredient.
This job opening covers a research position at the STADIUS group of the Electrical Engineering Dept. ESAT of KU Leuven (Belgium) for a Ph.D. candidate in the frame of a project on signal processing algorithm design for next-generation wearable neuro-technology and neuro-sensornetworks. A specific focus is on the design of adaptive multi-channel neural signal processing algorithms, amenable to low-power distributed or parallellizable architectures with constrained energy resources.
Candidates must hold a Masters degree in Electrical or Computer Science Engineering (or equivalent) with excellent grades, and with a strong mathematically-oriented engineering background. A good knowledge in the following fields is deemed necessary:
Additional research/educational experience in any of the following topics is a plus:
Candidates should be motivated, independent, critical, and should have strong team-player skills. Excellent proficiency in the English language is also required, as well as good communication skills, both oral and written.
