Direction:

  1. Non-invasive neurostimulation device for pain relief 非侵入式神經刺激裝置研發
    (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.

    該裝置將與香港中文大學麻醉與重症監護室的Matthew Chan教授以及精神科的Linda Lam教授和Hanna Lu教授合作開發。

    研究者將與本研究組成員和臨床合作者一起完成從草圖到試驗的全週期醫療設備開發過程,負責協助研究團隊進行以下工作:
    (a)設備開發
    (b)利用細胞和動物模型對設備進行實驗評估
    (c)在實驗室及臨床環境對設備進行測試。

    有疼痛研究,神經刺激,生物醫學設備/儀器開發和/或相關行業經驗方面的經驗者優先考慮。

  2. Neuromodulation device 神經調節設備研發
    (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.

    該項目將與港中文醫學院合作進行,核心目標之一是使用電子設備來製造大功率電磁脈衝發生器用於生物醫學應用(例如康復治療)。研究者將與本研究小組成員和臨床合作者一起完成從草圖設計到試驗的全週期醫療設備開發過程

    研究者將負責協助研究團隊進行以下工作:
    (a) 電子設計和原型機的建造;
    (b) 實驗室及臨床環境進行測試和實驗;及
    (c) 承擔研究小組分配的其他(臨時)任務。

    具備Python和C語言的良好編程技能或具有生物醫學設備/儀器開發經驗和/或相關行業經驗者優先。
