We are seeking a part-time (Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Oral BioSensing) for 1 day a week to join Natural Interaction Lab at the Department of Engineering Science (Headington - Oxford).  The post is funded by BBSRC and is fixed-term for 15 months to 31st November 2024. 


The aim of this project is to demonstrate the system in a relevant operational environment, through verification and validation of the recorded data. This post will focus on hard- and software development with intent sensing being the particular area of interest. You will be responsible to develop, test and validate firmware and hardware for oral sensing.  


You should possess research experience in oral sensing and hold (or be near completion) of a PhD/DPhil in Engineering or a comparable field. You will have previous experience in developing oral sensing solutions, testing firmware, physiological data collection within the oral cavity and algorithm development for data obtained in the oral cavity. Excellent communication skills, including the ability to write for publication, present research proposals and results, and represent the research group at meetings are also required.
