We are seeking a new Post-Doctoral fellow to work in the Max Näder lab for Rehabilitation Technologies and Outcomes Research housed in the Center of Bionic Medicine located downtown at the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab. The Post-Doc Fellow will work independently to use machine learning techniques and data from advanced flexible wearable sensors and smart phone technology to make clinical predications and assessments. Body-worn sensors will be used to capture clinical data, including information walking and muscle function. Machine learning algorithms will be applied to make meaningful inferences and diagnostic tools for healthy and impaired populations. The position is supported by NIH, NIDILRR, and private funds provided by the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab. The position also includes collaborative work with Dr. Konrad Kording at University of Pennsylvania.
A successful candidate should have a real interest in clinical problems while also strong computational skills. Proficiency in MATLAB required. Experience with Python preferred.
