Job description

Within the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS), the Department of Biomedical Signals and Systems (BSS) is looking for a highly motivated Assistant Professor (f/m) with advanced expertise in the analysis of (multi-modal) signals and dynamic systems, with a focus on ambulatory movement analysis and its application in the clinic and daily life (e.g. eHealth, transition of hospital/rehabilitation care to home). You will work on the challenges of reliably measuring and analyzing human movement quality during daily-life using sensor fusion principles in order to enable assessment and prediction of disease progression as input for clinical decision making and on-body feedback. Your teaching will include dynamics and feedback control of physiological functions, addressed from an engineering perspective.

The mission of the BSS department is to enable improved diagnosis and treatment of patients with chronic diseases involving the neuromotor, cardiopulmonary and/or endocrine systems in the home/self-care as well as clinical setting. Our research is embedded in the Technical Medicine (TechMed) and Digital Society (DSI) Institutes of the University of Twente (UT). Our teaching contributes to the Technical Medicine, Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and CreaTe curricula.
