Epilepsy is one of the most life-changing chronic conditions in the UK, affecting 1 among 100 persons at some point in their life. Information that could facilitate personalised monitoring and characterisation of this disease is an urgent, yet unmet, clinical need. The extraction of novel personalised brain activity markers in epilepsy, in the context of a better understanding of risk factors, could provide the basis for novel future interventions and public health strategies for primary and secondary prevention of developmental impairments and strategies to improve surgery planning.
The power electronics research team within the Institute for Energy Systems at the University of Edinburgh is seeking an experienced Research Associate (Power Electronics) to support the EPSRC funded programmes “High Current Module and Technologies Optimised for HVDC’ and ‘Quietening ultra-low-loss SiC & GaN waveforms’. The successful candidate will work closely with the team at Edinburgh and collaborators at partner universities to deliver advances in switching control and efficient use of Silicon IGBT and Silicon Carbide MOSFETs in high power applications.
