Mälardalen University is growing and evolving due to increased research funding from the Swedish Government. Join our team on this exciting journey towards MDU`s vision, to be a progressive and collaborative University where together we shape a sustainable future. You can make a difference. Together, we can create a sustainable future through knowledge and innovation. We believe that knowledge and new perspectives are best attained and reached together in collaboration with others – our colleagues, students, the private and public sectors, both nationally and internationally.
Around 20 000 students are currently studying courses and programmes with us in the various domains. We offer education in areas such as design and communication, economics, health, engineering and technology, preschool and compulsory school teacher training as well as in chamber music and opera. In most of our areas we also offer programmes entirely taught in English. We conduct research in all disciplinary domains and our research in Future Energy and Embedded Systems is internationally prominent.
Mälardalen University is located in Sweden, on both sides of Lake Mälaren, with campuses in Eskilstuna and Västerås. Mälardalen is a region dominated by strong growth with several multinational companies based here such as ABB, Volvo, Westinghouse, Alstom and Northvolt. We enjoy close cooperation with the region’s private sector, municipalities, and county councils.

At the School of Innovation, Design and Engineering our students are studying to be for example innovators, entrepreneurs, illustrators, communications officers, network technicians and engineers.

Position description

You will have a key role in the PRE-fall project where you are expected to work with iterative development of sensor solutions and algorithms. You will primarily work with signal processing and development of algorithms that can identify variations in physiological parameters which are related to deteriorations in different physical abilities.

The iterative evaluation of sensor solutions with groups of 5-30 participants will result in development and modifications of algorithms able to detect deteriorations in different physical abilities based on subtle variations in physiological parameters which indicate an increased risk of falling.

The work will be conducted in close collaboration with other researchers in the project team and industry. The position is a temporary employment of 2 years.

Qualifications requirements

The applicant is required to have a PhD degree in Computer engineering, Computer science, Health technology, Biomedical engineering or similar. The applicant must have completed the degree no more than three years before the end of the application period.

Knowledge in Reliable acquisition and processing of physiological signals, Programming for complex real-time sensing, Analysis and Feedback is required. The applicant should be fluent in English, both written and spoken.

Decisive importance is attached to personal suitability. We value the qualities that an even distribution of age and gender, as well as ethnic and cultural diversity, can contribute to the organisation.

Merit

Knowledge in App-development, Electronics, Gamification, Physiology, Physical activity and training, and Biomedical engineering is a merit for the position.
