Postdoctoral Fellow in Biomedical Engineering in Innovative Implantable Sensors

  • Do you want to make a difference?
  • Do you want to help improve health for Australians
  • Join our dedicated team at CSIRO's Future Science Platforms

CSIRO Postdoctoral Fellowships provide scientists and engineers opportunities to launch their careers, extend their professional networks and enhance their career prospects. The successful candidate will join the multidisciplinary team of Probing Biosystems Future Science Platform team, and the Mobile Health team at the Australian e-Health Research Centre (AEHRC), part of CSIRO Health and Biosecurity, and Critical Care Research Group (CCRG) and ICETLAB, The Prince Charles Hospital.

It will be a great opportunity for the successful candidate to work with a world-renowned research team on cutting edge research projects. The Fellow will have a unique opportunity to be involved in cutting-edge science and medical innovation to bring about state-of-art clinical intervention through monitoring and feedback controlled system that is surgically implantable, and provide better quality of medical care into healthcare practice for the benefit of the community and healthcare delivery in Australia and worldwide.

Specifically you will:

  • Carry out innovative, impactful research of strategic importance to CSIRO that will, where possible, lead to novel and important scientific outcomes.
  • Investigate new implantable biosensors and signal processing towards physiological measurements with CSIRO’s Biomedical Manufacturing and Data61 business units.
  • Develop feedback control system that directly communicates with implanted devices (eg. cardiac assist devices) and/or externally via mobile health Apps through automated or manual clinical decision methods via algorithms or clinicians’ judgement, respectively.
  • Work with clinicians and contribute to conducting surgical implantation and testing of developed implantable feedback control system in large animal studies to collect data to test an automated post-surgical monitoring and management scenarios.
  • Prepare appropriate conference papers and present those at conferences

Locations: Herston, Brisbane, QLD
Salary:   $80K to $91K plus up to 15.4% superannuation
Tenure:   3 years
Ref No:  32504

To be considered you will have

  • A Biomedical Engineering doctorate (or will shortly satisfy the requirements of a PhD*) in a relevant engineering discipline area, such as Electrical, Electronic, or computer science with application medical research experience.
  • Knowledge and experience in developing implantable sensors, feedback control, and signal processing of physiological/biomechanical/biochemistry data to enable closed loop physiological control system.
  • Research experience in biomedical engineering, health or medical research.
  • Analytical methods to derive physiological and clinical diagnostic from implantable sensor monitoring.

*To be appointed candidates must have submitted their PhD by the time they commence, if a PhD has not been conferred.
