BEEE Lab at KAIST

Toward invisible brain-machine interfaces using integrated circuit technologies!

The Biomedical Energy-Efficient Electronics Lab in Bio and Brain Engineering at KAIST aims at implementing and advancing invisible brain-machine interfaces and artificial retinae for diagnostic and therapeutic medical instrumentation using integrated circuit technologies. Our key research interests toward innovative bio-convergent technologies include miniaturized wireless neural interfacing microsystems, and unobtrusive energy-efficient brain and body area sensor networks

Openings

We are actively looking for self-motivated BEEEers in the following positions:

Graduate students: M.S. and Ph.D. courses, and M.S./Ph.D. integrated. We are planning to hire more students this year!

Post-doctoral fellows: we now have an opening for post-doctoral fellow.  Please see these documents. If you have any questions for this openings, please send an email to Prof. Kim.

If interested in applying, please contact Prof. Kim.  Due to the sheer number of applicants, we are unable to respond to all requests. We have many research projects for implementing miniaturized implants, closed-loop stimulation, wireless power transmission, AI-hardware, and wearable devices for biopotential recording and processing.
