PhD opening (posted Sept. 7, 2022): We have an opening for a PhD student to work on peripheral nerve interfaces, starting in January 2023! The successful candidate should have a Master's degree in biomedical or electrical engineering, and interest in improving the state of the art for peripheral nerve recordings. Experience with neuroprosthetic studies, deep learning and physiological signal processing is strongly preferred. Interested candidates should send their CVs and transcripts to jose.zariffa [at] utoronto [dot] ca with subject line "PNS PhD application".


The Adaptive Neurorehabilitation Systems Lab is based at the Kite Research Institute - Toronto Rehabilitation Institute - University Health Network, and at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Toronto.


Our research focuses on developing technology that can help restore function after neurological injuries, such as spinal cord injury (SCI) or stroke. We develop innovative technology to measure and track activity and neural function throughout the rehabilitation process, and use this information to implement adaptive rehabilitation strategies and devices that will improve outcomes. You can learn more about our work by browsing through this site, and please feel free to contact us with any questions or comments.

The members of our group are also affiliated with the Rehabilitation Engineering Lab (REL), a facility shared by multiple research groups at the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute.
