NEURAL-ENGINEERING POST-DOCTORAL POSITION IN MURI PROJECT AT ESSEX

NEURAL-ENGINEERING POST-DOCTORAL POSITION IN MURI PROJECT AT ESSEX
 
The Essex Brain-Computer Interfaces and Neural Engineering laboratory is happy to announce a postdoctoral position in the newly funded project “Closed-Loop Multisensory Brain-Computer Interface for Enhanced Decision Accuracy". The project is supported by the Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) programme and it falls within the MURI theme "Modeling and Analysis of Multisensory Neural Information Processing for Direct Brain-Computer Communications” which is jointly funded by the US Department of Defense and the UK Ministry of Defence. The appointment will be made as Senior Research Officer.
 
The project is in partnership with the University of Southern California, the University of California Berkeley, Harvard University, New York University, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Imperial College London, and University College London. The award is initially for a three-year base period but may be extended for a further two-year period based on the project successfully achieving its planned outcomes in the first period.
 
The Essex team will work on brain-computer interfacing, on algorithms for signal processing and extraction of information from EEG and other physiological signals, on behavioural and neuro-physiological investigations of multisensory feature binding and integration, as well as methods for predicting the level of attention and confidence in decision making of a participant from behavioural, physiological and neural data in real time.
 
Applicants are expected to hold a PhD (or be very close to submitting their PhD thesis) in Biomedical Engineering, Brain-computer Interfaces, Neural Engineering, Electronic Engineering, Statistics, Physics, Computer Science or a closely related discipline. You will have significant experience in signal processing, and experience of statistical modelling of neural signals and processes and brain-computer interfaces is desirable. Applicants are also expected to have a strong publication record (relative to their career stage) as first author, ideally including publications in 1st quartile journals in relevant areas.
 
The successful applicant will join the Essex team — formed by Dr Luca Citi (PI), Prof Riccardo Poli (Co-I and UK team leader), Dr Caterina Cinel (named Research Fellow) — and will be part of the Essex BCI-NE Lab, today the UK’s largest research group in brain-computer interfaces.
 
This post is initially fixed-term for 3 years from July 2016 (subject to possible minor delays) and may be extended for two more years if further funding is approved.
 
Please note that appointment to this post will be made as Senior Research Officer
