The Neural Engineering Group within the Trinity Centre for Bioengineering invites applications for a Post-Doctoral Researcher with specific data analysis, machine learning and data prediction skills.

The candidate will also be required to:

  • Play a leading role in the development of novel theoretical ideas for data analysis of multimodal clinical data, machine learning, probability, and data prediction
  • Participate in the specification, design and validation of new and improved linear and non-linear signal processing methods for data analysis of bioacoustic data.
  • Operate independently with weekly or biweekly meetings with faculty mentors.
  • Write articles for journal publication, research and development grants on innovative methods and approaches for bioacoustic analysis.
  • Work with clinicians and neuropsychologists to develop and evaluate new and improved processing systems.
  • Prepare progress and technical reports on the research project.
  • Represent the Neural Engineering Group in outside discussions (technical and scientific fora) including collaborations with faculty, researchers and clinicians.
  • Work closely with internal Trinity Centre for Bioengineering research staff to develop and validate complete acoustic signal processing systems
  • Act as a technical resource for research staff involved in the development of statistical analysis and assist in the technical investigation of biomedical signal processing data.

Primary Function: · 65%: Carry out theoretical studies, development of bioacoustic analysis methods, statistical analysis and . Analyse real experimental data (audio, behavioural). Help develop new and improved signal processing algorithms. Help provide the technical focus and direction for the signal processing development.

20%: Work as project team leader on the specification, design, development, integration and validation of complete signal processing technologies. Participate during the initial phase of signal processing software development.

10%: Report research progress and results with funding agencies. Identify funding opportunities for development of this research activity.

5%: Provide support to other laboratory research staff and students regarding biomedical signal processing issues.

The candidate must have a PhD in signal processing and will have journal publications in the field of data analysis, machine learning and data prediction, preferably in the field of audio or clinical data and be
Familiar with Signal Processing tools and Languages (Matlab, C++, etc)
Familiar with statistical analysis of experimental data
Able to work autonomously, managing and reporting on their assigned projects
