Three Lectureship posts in Neurotechnology

Department of Bioengineering,
Department of Computing and
Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering
Salary in the range £40,050 to £44,730 per annum
Imperial College is seeking to make three appointments at the  
interface between neuroscience and engineering. Two of these  
appointments will be joint lectureships between the Departments of  
Bioengineering and Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE). The  
third appointment will be a joint lectureship between the Departments  
of Bioengineering and Computing. Applicants should have a strong  
record of academic achievement and be able to direct an exciting and  
independent research programme in an area that synergises with our  
current activities.

For the Bioengineering/EEE appointments specific areas of interest  
include:

Position 1
Advanced optical and electrophysiological methods for reverse  
engineering of neural circuits, neuroimaging, brain machine  
interfaces, miniaturised sensors, sensory coding and sensorimotor  
control.

Position 2
Signal processing for advanced cellular neuroimaging or  
electrophysiological technologies, machine learning approaches to  
neuroscience, neural mechanisms of multisensory integration, reverse  
engineering of the visual system and cognitive brain processes and  
developing brain-inspired engineering solutions.

For the Bioengineering/Computing appointment, specific areas of  
interest include:

Position 3
Computational neural modeling; including large and multiscale brain  
models, sensory coding, multisensory integration, neural dynamics and  
neuroimaging for brain modeling.

Outstanding candidates working in other areas at the interface of  
Bioengineering and Electrical Engineering/Computing are also  
encouraged to apply. Senior appointments will be considered for  
exceptionally qualified individuals.

Applicants must have a PhD (or equivalent) and an outstanding research  
record as demonstrated by their publications.  Teaching experience is  
also highly desirable.

An application form and further particulars of the posts can be
