UCSF is recruiting a full-time engineering postdoc to join a new and unique multidisciplinary team, headed jointly by neurosurgeon Dr. Edward Chang and device-engineering specialist Dr. Peng Cong. Directly informed by field-leading, multidisciplinary BCI and human neurophysiology research at UCSF, the project will be focused on the development of new brain-interfacing implantable medical devices. Solid analog and digital circuit design skills, experience with complex PCB design, and signal processing knowledge are requirements, as is a demonstrated ability to thrive in a fast-paced research & development environment. Further experience with active implantable medical product development; mixed-signal IC design; bio-signal acquisition system design; and/or microcontroller programming is preferred. A key area of focus will be electronics design for development of new implantable brain-interfacing devices; electronics may include embedded systems, mixed analog/digital circuits, power circuits, and RF.
The incumbent will join the group of industry-seasoned medical device engineer, Dr. Peng Cong, who is launching a technology development team at UCSF in collaboration with neurosurgeon and neuroscience researcher Dr. Edward Chang. The projects under development will include neuromodulatory device technology to address severe neurological disorders, with design directly informed by ongoing advanced clinical studies at UCSF. The incumbent will join and contribute to a lively and engaged research community at UCSF and UC Berkeley focused on the development of safe brain-interfacing interventions for a range of major clinical challenges, including neuropsychiatric disorders, epilepsy, movement disorders, stroke/paralysis and impaired communication/locked-in syndrome.
