The APT research group (Artificial Pancreas Trondheim), Dept. of Engineering Cybernetics and Dept. of Electronic Systems, NTNU, currently have two vacant postdoc positions within sound processing. Applications are to be submitted through JobbNorge and the deadline is 3 November 2019.
The long-term aim of the APT research group is to establish a robust artificial pancreas by combining continuous intraperitoneal (IP) glucose sensing, IP insulin delivery, and robust control algorithms. APT currently has two large research projects "Double Intraperitoneal Artificial Pancreas" and "Listening to the patients – Analysis of body sounds for diagnostics and monitoring" in the Centre for Digital Life Norway funded by the Research Council of Norway. The candidates will be part of an interdisciplinary research team with broad expertise in medicine (endocrinology, pharmacology, anesthesia and comparative medicine), biomedical cybernetics (modeling, identification and control), biosensor technology, and optical spectroscopy.
The positions are supervised by Professor Dag Roar Hjelme, Professor Øyvind Stavdahl, Associate Professor Anders Lyngvi Fougner and other APT faculty members.
The prospective startup for both positions is early 2020.
These positions will develop sound processing methods related to health diagnostics and monitoring, with main focus on sounds from the digestive system and from the lungs. The primary target groups are patients with diabetes mellitus and patients with lung disease.
