Mälardalen University (MDH) announces three PhD student positions. The School of Innovation, Design and Engineering (IDT) provides an international research-intensive environment with strong focus on Embedded Systems. IDT is hosting a large number of national and international research projects, in many cases in close collaboration with industrial partners.

Embedded Sensor Systems for Health (ESS-H) is a new research profile at Mälardalen University targeting Embedded Sensor Systems for Health. ESS-H is financed by the Swedish Knowledge Foundation by 36 million SEK over 6 years. In ESS-H, researchers at MDH are working together with industrial partners, municipalities, and county councils with the aim to develop novel embedded sensor systems promoting health. The sensor systems will monitor health conditions and follow health trends of elderly at home, but also monitor drivers and machine operators with the aim to achieve a safer work environment.

The current three PhD student positions address the ESS-H core areas: Biomedical Sensor Technology, Biomedical Signal Processing, and Intelligent Decision Support.

Together, these three PhD students will span large parts of the competence areas:

Monitoring physiological parameters, provide feedback to the user/patient/care staff and/or relative
Traditional signal processing in the time and frequency domains, detection of various biomedical signals, removal of motion and environmental artefacts, motion analysis, development of inverse scattering algorithms for image reconstruction, and advanced sensor data analysis in the sensor nodes
Distributed decision support, case-based reasoning, machine learning and knowledge discovery, and information fusion
As a PhD student, you will focus on one of these research problems and investigate it thoroughly. You will also be active in teaching activities.

The requirement for being qualified for PhD studies is to have at least four years of university studies, corresponding to a Master?s degree.
Admittance to the post-graduate education will be handled in conjunction with the employment procedure. In general anyone who has graduated with a Master's degree with a major in Electrical Engineering or Computer Science is eligible as graduate student in Embedded Systems. Students with corresponding qualifications, for instance from similar programs at other universities, may also be admitted.

The PhD students will participate in the building of a large cross-subject research group with several senior researchers, with focus on a systems-oriented research within the ESS-H research profile, in collaboration with industry and society, and building a regional, national and international network. Cooperational abilities and experience of core competence areas are thus of importance.

Active involvement in the development of the ESS-H environment as well as the entire ES environment is expected.
