Dear List, I am writing because we have an opening for a DSP/Software engineer in the Research group at Cochlear Americas available starting this June. I thought people on this list might be interested in this position or know people who would be interested. The person we hire will mainly be working with me and other scientists and audiologists and programmers in the Research group. The primary responsibilities will be to write Windows programs to run novel experiments and to implement signal processing strategies on embedded DSP platforms. The position is here in Denver. Details are in the attachment. If people are interested in applying or have any questions they can contact me (CLong@xxxxxxxx) or Niki Wollan Staffing Specialist Cochlear Americas 400 Inverness Parkway, Ste. 400 Englewood, CO 80112 nwollan@xxxxxxxx 303.524.7171 direct The advertisement follows in plain text: Cochlear Americas TITLE: Software/DSP Engineer DEPARTMENT: Research SUMMARY A Software/DSP Engineer is needed to design, document, and implement applications in support of Cochlearís research into new sound encoding strategies for cochlear implants. Software development may include: - Real-time control of stimulation hardware (PC based DAC boards or embedded platforms), - Windows GUI programs to run a variety of experiments, - Applications in Matlab, and - Firmware for embedded (DSP) based systems. DUTIES & RESPONSIBILITIES 1. Design and develop experimental signal processing and encoding software systems for portable, embedded, and PC-based DSP platforms. Such systems will be used for both experimental psychophysics and experimental audio signal processing to deliver electrical stimulation to human cochlear implant subjects, in both acute laboratory and chronic take-home settings. 2. Participate in specification of signal processing and encoding systems for cochlear implants 3. Design and develop software applications for presentation, capture, and analysis of stimulus signals, and biological response signals (e.g. evoked potentials) 4. Design, conduct and document verification and validation procedures for experimental software systems. 5. Develop and document intellectual property; assist in drafting of patent applications 6. Assist in preparing appropriate regulatory documents and submissions and ensuring regulatory compliance in relation to experimental work 7. Maintain familiarity with appropriate technical literature 8. Assist in technology handoff to design and development teams 9. Provide technical consulting and support to Cochlear Americasí functional departments and CAM external research collaborators 10. Other duties as required MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS B.S. in Computer Science or Engineering with training in linear systems and discrete time systems. Experience developing Windows based applications in C++ with MFC (or .NET). Experience developing real-time implementation of digital signal processing systems. Experience working in assembly language on DSP or micro-controllers. Familiarity with Matlab. Any of the following is advantageous: experience with hearing impairment and/or cochlear implants; medical devices; experimental psychophysics; familiarity with I/O interface hardware designs; experience programming in python; experience in the design and fabrication of embedded or portable real-time hardware.
