Job Description

This product restricts the flow of air on inhalation and/or exhalation providing ‘respiratory muscle training’ to athletes, resulting in physiological benefits. This three month project will look into extending the capability of the device through the incorporation of wireless monitoring systems.
The project will entail investigating wireless communications, power and sensing systems and developing benchtop wireless sensor platforms for integration into the device. The project will also involve investigation into manufacturing strategies for production and integration.
We welcome applications from undergraduates and postgraduates who expect to obtain a good degree (First Class or Upper Second or equivalent) in engineering or telecommunications or an allied subject. Applicants must have experience with circuit design and wireless communications. 
Starting June. Actual start date flexible and can accommodate remaining deadlines. Project is fixed at 12 week duration.
This is a full time position.
