One PhD and One Postdoc Position in Neural Engineering/Neurophysics, 
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Centre de Recerca en Enginyeria Biomèdica de Catalunya (CREBEC), Barcelona, Spain 

Neural engineering and neurophysics are emerging disciplines that combine engineering, physics, neurobiology and computer science with the goal of developing and 
using novel technologies to monitor and control electrical activity in the brain. The Technical University of Catalonia (UPC) and the Catalan Center for Research in Biomedical 
Engineering (CREBEC), located at the Barcelona Science Parc (PCB), are seeking to expand efforts in this area. 
The neuroengineering lab at UPC has been awarded a European grant to lead the multinational project VSNs (Voltage-Sensitive Nanoparticles) on the development 
of novel optical methods to monitor neuronal activity. VSNs will exploit electro-optic phenomena in membrane-bound functionalized nanoparticles and intrinsic optical 
properties of cellular membranes to track neuronal activity. 

We are accepting applications for one PhD and one Postdoc position to work on VSNs. The project will involve dual electrical/optical measurements of activity in cultured mouse 
neurons and will be performed in close interaction with European collaborators. 

PhD position The successful candidate for the PhD position will have a degree in physics, engineering or bioengineering and an interest in neurobiology. Previous experience in 
neurobiology, neurophysics or neuroengineering is not necessary but would be a plus. 
Postdoc position The successful candidate for the postdoc position will have experience in at least one of the following areas; electrophysiology, biomedical optics or neurobiology. 
Start date: Immediate, ideally October 2006, but other dates can be negotiated. 
Duration: The PhD position is funded for four years. The Postdoc position will run for three years with yearly renewal conditional upon performance. 
Salary: Negotiable.
