  • Postdoctoral Fellow
  • Research Assistant (MPhil/MSc/BSc)

Directions

(i) Material Science: Functional materials for actuation, sensing and micro-/nanorobots, such as biomaterials, hydrogels, 3D printing, soft robots and the related technologies.
(ii) Control and System: Development of magnetic control system, algorithm and UI
(iii) Biomedicine: Biomedical applications of multi-scale robotics, such as non-invasive medical intervention technology, capsule endoscopic technology, implantable devices and pathogen detection.Also welcomes candidates from different fields, including science, engineering and interdisciplinary research.

(Degree in Chemistry, Material Science, Biomedical Engineering, Biology, Biological Science or related disciplines)

Focuses on micro-/nanorobotics, functional nanomaterials and their biomedical applications, particularly in pathogen sensing. The group has tight collaboration with the Institute of Digestive Disease (IDD) and the Department of Microbiology of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). The media report of a recent collaboration can be found here

Experience in development of biomedical device/instrumentation and/or related industrial experience will be advantageous.

(Degree in Neuroscience, Medicine, Biomedical Science, or related disciplines)

This project aims to develop a non-invasive neurostimulation device for pain relief, which is in cooperation with Professor Matthew CHAN in the Department of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care and Professor Linda LAM and Professor Hanna LU from the Department of Psychiatry.

The appointee(s) will work with the research team and clinical collaborators for a fast-paced, sketch-to-trial full-cycle medical device development for pain relief. The appointee(s) will be responsible to assist the research team for

(a) device development;
(b) evaluation of the developed device on cells and animals; and
(c) performing tests and experiments in campus and clinical sites.

He/she will work collaboratively with other research staff and students in both the engineering team and the biological experiment team.

Experience in pain research, neurostimulation, development of biomedical device/instrumentation and/or related industrial experience will be advantageous.
(Degree in Electronics, Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, or related disciplines)

This project will be conducted in cooperation with the Faculty of Medicine, CUHK. One of the core aims of the project is to build a high power magnetic pulse generator using state-of-the-art power electronics for biomedical applications, such as rehabilitation. The appointee(s) will work with the research team and clinical collaborators for a fast-paced, sketch-to-trial full-cycle medical device development.

The appointee(s) will be responsible to assist the research team for
(a) electronics design and prototyping;
(b) performing tests and experiments in campus and clinical sites; and
(c) undertaking other ad-hoc tasks as assigned by the research team.

He/she will work collaboratively with other research staff and students in both the engineering team and the biological experiment team.

Good programming skills in Python and C. Experience in development of biomedical device/instrumentation and/or related industrial experience will be advantageous.
