Requisition ID: 24304 


The Bioengineering Systems and Technologies Group seeks to improve the performance of human-centered missions through preventing injury and disease, improving sensing and identification of people and their environment, and speeding rehabilitation and recovery.  Biomedical research includes advanced sensing, algorithms, modeling, prototyping, and field testing of technologies to diagnose disease, predict outcomes, avoid injuries, and monitor and enhance human performance. The Neurocognitive, Speech, and Hearing research area emphasizes multiscale system analysis with objective measurement and manipulation, neurocomputational models for personalized insights and interventions, and system architectures to move from lab/clinical to free-living environments.  This work includes the development of tools for enhanced learning and communication, cognitive load and stress monitoring, brain computer interfaces, and neurological disorder characterization.  Our highly interdisciplinary team draws on skills from biology, biochemistry, signal processing, engineering, computer science, physics, and medical research areas.

The Bioengineering Systems and Technologies Group is searching for a candidate to participate in projects related to auditory and neurocognitive health.  The candidate will assist in algorithm development, brain-computer interface design, implementing computational models of sensory and other neural pathways, and data collection and analysis.
