Position Description: 

Apply here:


This job opening covers a research position at the STADIUS group of the Department of Electrical Engineering (ESAT) of KU Leuven (Belgium) for a Ph.D. candidate in the frame of an ERC project on signal processing algorithm design for next-generation wearable neuro-technology and neuro-sensornetworks.  A specific focus is on the design of adaptive multi-channel neural signal processing algorithms, amenable to low-power distributed or parallellizable architectures with constrained energy resources.


Candidates must hold a Masters degree in Electrical or Computer Science Engineering (or equivalent) with excellent grades, and with a strong mathematically-oriented engineering background. A good knowledge in the following fields is deemed necessary:

-Signals and systems

-Linear algebra

-Signal processing 

-Analysis of random/stochastic signals (stationarity, power spectral density, estimation theory, Wiener, etc.) 

Additional research/educational experience in any of the following topics is a plus:

- Multi-channel signal processing and spatial filtering

- (Blind) source separation

- Sensor array processing (beamforming, detection, …)

- (Convex) optimization theory 

- Brain-computer interfaces and neural decoding

- Component analysis theory and application (PCA, ICA, IVA, CCA, …)

- Machine learning (deep or not)

Candidates should be motivated, independent, critical, and should have strong team-player skills. Excellent proficiency in the English language is also required, as well as good communication skills, both oral and written.


- An exciting interdisciplinary research environment at KU Leuven, Europe’s most innovative university (Reuters: )

- A Ph.D. title from a high-ranked university (after +- 4 years of successful research)

- A thorough scientific research-oriented education

- The possibility to become a world-class researcher

- The possibility to participate in international conferences and collaborations

- A competitive monthly stipend (scholarship)
