The Sensorimotor Rehabilitation Laboratory at Sargent College is seeking a motivated and organized junior/senior level student majoring in electrical engineering, aerospace/mechanical engineering, computer science, or mathematics with knowledge of C, C++, and/or Python to port and optimize rehabilitation-based video games from Matlab. Will work hands on and gain experience with real-time biomedical instrumentation, and have the opportunity to see how clinical work can benefit from engineering and computational approaches. A portfolio (consisting of class projects, open-source projects, hobbyist programming, etc.) will be helpful in evaluating suitability for the position. Audio recording experience is considered helpful, but not necessary for the position. Time commitment is variable.
