A postdoctoral research position is available to develop decoding algorithms for brain-computer interface applications and develop generative models of neural activity. Investigations will take place at the Applied Neural Interfaces Laboratory in Florida International University’s Department of Biomedical Engineering, which is housed in the College of Engineering and Computing. The PI will work closely with the postdoctoral scholar in a dynamic, collaborative lab environment to develop the project and help the trainee achieve their career goals.
The position entails software development, conducting human behavioral studies, and algorithm design with the goal of advancing the frontiers of brain-computer interface research and understanding the relationship between human users and adaptive controllers. The postdoctoral scholar will be expected to lead experiment design and data analysis efforts as well as participate in guiding the overall intellectual direction of the project. The position will allow the postdoctoral researcher the opportunity to creatively develop new solutions to challenging problems related to the neuroscience of brain-computer interfaces using state-of-the-art algorithms, advanced computing equipment, and virtual reality hardware. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering, neuroscience, or a related field and have experience with MATLAB. For information about related projects see: https://anil.fiu.edu/
Qualified candidates are encouraged to apply directly to the Principal Investigator, Dr. Zachary Danziger (Zachary.Danziger@fiu.edu), with a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information for at least 3 references. The position is available to start in June of 2017 and review will continue until the position is filled.
