      EPFL Center for Neuroprosthetics / Faculty Positions at the
      interface of Neuroscience and Bioengineering

The Institute of Bioengineering and the Brain-Mind Institute at EPFL 
invite applications for faculty positions at all ranks, from *tenure 
track assistant professor to full professor*, for the newly-launched 
*Center for Neuroprosthetics*. The Center, situated between the School 
of Engineering and the School of Life Sciences, seeks outstanding 
individuals working in (1) hearing, and (2) other areas of 
neuroprosthetics, such as invasive and non-invasive sensing and 
stimulation in restoration of motor control or sensory perception such 
as vision. The open faculty positions are offered in an environment of 
both theoretical and experimental research, rich for the development of 
novel enabling technologies as well as for seeking deeper understanding 
of fundamental mechanisms underlying the field of neuroprosthetics.

The School of Engineering and the Institute of Bioengineering offer 
strength in areas that include bio-MEMS/NEMS, bioelectronics, robotics 
and learning, integrated systems, biomaterials, biophotonics, molecular 
and computational systems biology, and stem cell biotechnology.  The 
Brain-Mind Institute offers a broader context of neuroscience, with 
strengths in cognition, behavior, cellular and molecular neuroscience, 
computational neuroscience, and neurodegeneration, among others.

Excellent experimental infrastructure are available including core 
facilities in animal physiological and behavioral phenomics, animal and 
human imaging, quantitative light microscopy, genomics and proteomics, 
micro- and nano-fabrication, and electron microscopy and surface analysis.

Successful candidates are expected to initiate independent, creative 
research programs and participate in undergraduate and graduate 
teaching. Internationally competitive salaries, start-up resources and 
benefits are offered.

Applications should include a curriculum vitae with a list of 
publications, a concise statement of research and teaching interests, 
and the names and addresses (including e-mail) of at least five 
referees. Applications should be uploaded to:

*http://neuroprosthetics-rec.epfl.ch* <http://neuroprosthetics-rec.epfl.ch/>

The deadline for applications is *1 February 2010*.

Enquiries may be addressed to:
*Prof. Jeffrey A. Hubbell
*E-mail: *neuroprosthetics-rec at epfl.ch*
