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.

Interested candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, personal statement, and contact information for at least 2 references to Prof. An Do (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

PostDoc position in BCIs (Paris, France)

A one-year post-doctoral position in EEG-based Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs) is currently open at the INSEP Research Department in Paris. For this position, the candidate is expected to have a PhD in the field of BCIs or closely related fields. More specifically, she/he should have a solid training in BCIs, EEG signal processing, machine learning and fast calculations for real time applications. The candidate should also possess a strong programming background and statistical skills (MATLAB, C++). Strong language and writing skills in English are also required (note: speaking French is not required). The salary will be adjusted to the candidate's postdoctoral experience.
