Dear all,

I attach information of a 7 months position related to brain-machine
interfaces within an H2020 Marie Curie ITN project.


Javier Minguez

Early Stage Researcher (PhD fellowship)

Brain-Machine Interfaces for Cognitive State Detection

Applications are invited for the above position to work with Prof.
Javier Minguez <http://webdiis.unizar.es/~jminguez/> and Prof.
Luis Montesano <http://webdiis.unizar.es/~montesan/web/> on a Marie Curie
Initial Training Network funded project in Neural Engineering to underpin
work at BitBrain Technologies <http://www.bitbrain.es/> (spin-off company
of the University of Zaragoza) on the topic of Brain-Machine Interfaces for
Cognitive State Detection.

This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to a joint venture between
a Neurotechnology company and the Biomedical Engineering School, on an EU
funded project in Neural Engineering. BitBrain Technologies is a pioneer
company in Neurotechnology bringing the latest results on Neural
engineering to society. The PhD candidate will carry out research in the
context of neural interfaces to monitor and control the cognitive state
during long tasks. The objective will be the development of signal
processing and machine learning techniques able to detect in real-time
cognitive neural processes related to attention and mind wandering using a
multi-modal interface. Applications are encouraged from highly numerate
students with B.Sc or M.Sc. degree in biomedical/electrical/computer
engineering and from PhD students working on related areas.

The fellowship includes the possibility of collaboration during the
internship with Prof. Jordi Calvo of
the Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña and with Dr. Wolfram Erlhagen of
the Universidade do Minho, Portugal. Candidates must be therefore be able
to move between countries as necessary.

Candidates must be in the first 4 years of their research careers and not
been awarded a doctorate degree. Preference will be given to candidates
with experience in biomedical-neural engineering, electrical engineering
and/or computational neuroscience. As part of our commitment to promoting
diversity we encourage applications from women. To comply with the Marie
Curie Actions rule for mobility, applicants must not have resided, worked,
or studied in Spain for more than 12 months in the 3 years prior to January

This full-time position is available from the 1st of Janaury 2016 with a
fixed-term contract for a period of 7 months (salary around 20k€). Please
visit *http://www.empleo.gob.es/en/index.htm
<http://www.empleo.gob.es/en/index.htm>* for more information on
Spanish national regulations. For information about the Biomedical
Engineering School see
<http://i3a.unizar.es/postgrado/index_master_EN.php,which>* is one of the
most active in Spain.

Applications will be sent to *hr at bitbrain.es <hr at bitbrain.es>*. The post
will remain open until the position is filled. Please indicate clearly in
your application the reference number for this fellowship – ESR018.
