Postdoc in BCI signal processing

The Rudolf Magnus Institute in Utrecht, The Netherlands is looking for a
highly motivated postdoc interested in neural signal processing for
Brain Computer Interfacing. 

The Utrecht BCI group, led by Prof. dr. Nick Ramsey, is part of the
Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery at the University Medical
Center Utrecht and participates in the nationwide BrainGain Consortium,
which is devoted to application of Brain Computer Interfaces for
patients and healthy individuals. The main focus of the group is
conducting neuroscience research towards an invasive BCI application for
paralyzed patients. We perform experiments with both healthy subjects
and patients (~10 patients with electrode implants available for
research each year). Available techniques: 128-channel EEG systems for
extracranial and intracranial (ECoG) recordings, fMRI (1.5, 3 and 7 T
human Philips systems), TMS and 64-channel intraoperative recordings in
awake neurosurgery. Our highly interdisciplinary group consists of 4
postdocs, 10 PhD students and 6 master students, who have a background
in neuroscience, psychology, biology or physics and their own expertise
in the research field. 

The postdoc is expected to investigate new ECoG signal processing
techniques for BCI purposes, as well as for cognitive neuroscience
research. He/she will work in close collaboration with neuroscientists
and needs to have excellent communication skills.

The candidate is likely to have a PhD in biomedical engineering,
computational neuroscience, electrical engineering, mathematics or
physics, with a record of publications. Solid experience in signal
processing of any kind, a deep understanding of the underlying
mathematical principles and excellent programming skills in Matlab are
required. Experience in neuroscience is not a prerequisite, but we
expect the candidate to acquire knowledge of underlying psychological
and biological processes. 


Earliest starting date of the two-year position is March1st, 2010.
Application deadline is January 15th, 2010.  Applications and
information requests can be sent to Prof. dr. Nick Ramsey, through the
following email-adress:

<mailto:a.elbertse-schouten at umcutrecht.nl> . Please indicate the vacancy
number 2009/0495 in the subject of your email correspondence.
