Within the Si-Code European funded project entitled "Towards new Brain-Machine Interfaces: state-dependent information coding", we are looking for a post-doctoral candidate interested in contributing to this exciting project. The position is available since April 1st 2012 and covers the 36 month project duration.

The Si-Code project targets the development of a radically new generation of bidirectional Brain Machine Interfaces (BMIs) employing neural computational strategies and neuromorphic VLSI devices to discount variability induced by state changes of current BMI approaches. The project converges R&D efforts in the fields of neuroengineering, neuroscience, neuromorphic engineering and neurocomputation and it is carried out by five leading European partners located in Italy, Germany, Switzerland and France.

The candidate will be working in the Department of Neuroscience and Brain Technologies of the Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in Genova (Italy). He will be in charge of implementing an experimental setup combining a high-resolution MEA system and optogenetic tools and will be performing experimental studies to investigate information processing in neuronal assemblies. The ideal candidate has either an engineering University degree in physics or bio-medical engineering with an expertise in neuroscience and experimental studies, or has a University degree in biology or equivalent with strong skills in neurocomputation or engineering.

The young researcher will be based for most of his/her time at the IIT, supervised by internationally recognized experts and will have access to state-of-the-art equipment and laboratories. Proficiency in English is required. In general, we value scientists with a proactive attitude and results-oriented mindset, good interpersonal and communications skills and ability to work effectively within an interdisciplinary research team.

Interested applicants should submit CV, list of publications, a statement of research interests, and two reference letters.

Please send your application by e-mail to Luca.Berdondini at iit.it<mailto:Luca.Berdondini at iit.it>.

The deadline for the application is the 1st of June, 2012.
