Post-doctoral scholar availability
The University of California, Irvine Brain-Computer Interface Lab is actively recruiting for a post-doctoral scholar to join our research team in designing brain computer interfaces (BCIs) to help people with severe motor impairment from neurologic disorders. We are seeking highly motivated individuals to start work on a new project using BCIs to rehabilitate motor function in people with traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). This project is part of a collaboration with Northwestern University, the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC), and the Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center. This work is multidisciplinary, and we collaborate closely with other laboratories, thus providing tremendous educational and networking opportunities.
Desired qualifications include a PhD in biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, physics, neuroscience, computer science or related fields. Experience in BCIs or other neural prosthetics application is preferred. Candidates should possess neuroscience and machine learning/statistical/signal processing background as well as proficiency with Matlab and/or C/C++. Candidates should also have experience with EEG, electrocorticography (ECoG), or local field potential signals. Interest in staying for a 4 to 5 year time period is preferred. Finally, candidates should also have experience with working with human research subjects and have good interpersonal communication skills.
