The research project focuses on the improvement of the efficacy of deep brain stimulation and the gain of new information about its mechanism of action by extended intraoperative data recording.
The aim of the project is to intraoperatively evaluate symptoms (tremor, rigidity) and movements using accel erometry, to process, manage, and visualize the high quantity of data and, if possible, to propose a disease-specific mathematical model.
Requirements Diploma/Master in biomedical engineering or similar;
strong interest in basic medical research in neurosciences
strong background in signal processing and algorithms
preferably programming skills in Java
