The Information and Systems Sciences Laboratory (ISSL) at HRL Laboratories (www.hrl.com<http://www.hrl.com>) is looking for two exceptional postdocs to join a world-class team aiming to build revolutionary non-invasive stimulation systems that can accelerate skill acquisition and boost learning and memory for the general population. Successful candidates will work alongside leading scientists and engineers across the US and Europe. This project will be a very collaborative and inter-disciplinary effort. We are specifically looking for individuals with expertise in one or more of the following topics: neural statistical modeling, high-density EEG decoding, pattern recognition applied to brain/body signals, machine learning with very limited training data, closed-loop transcranial stimulation, brain-machine interfaces, and computational neuroscience. One individual will be tasked with developing, implementing, and validating real-time pattern recognition algorithms for decoding high-density EEG signals to inform non-invasive stimulation for memory enhancement. The other individual will be responsible for developing, implementing, and validating statistical and computational models that can interpret natural as well as stimulation-modulated brain activity at multiple time points to predict future behavioral performance in realistic memory tasks.

Knowledge of declarative and/or procedural memory systems and sleep consolidation is desired, but not strictly required. Individuals with a keen interest in translating basic neuroscience research into real-world applications are especially encouraged to apply. These are post-doctoral positions with an initial appointment for one year and renewal contingent upon satisfactory performance.

The Information and Systems Sciences Laboratory conducts groundbreaking research in three thrust areas: Complex Networks, Cyber-Physical Resilience and Brain-Machine Intelligence. We create new and innovative capabilities for diverse applications such as cyber-security, unmanned autonomous systems, human performance augmentation, big data analytics, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance, and electronic warfare.
The goal of our research in Brain-Machine Intelligence is to understand how humans process information and effectively interact with the environment to develop smarter autonomous systems, enhance human performance, and develop novel processing systems. Our research starts with the development of large-scale, neurobiologically and behaviorally faithful brain region models. We apply these models along with real-time measurements of brain activity (EEG, fMRI, fNIRS) to create advanced brain-computer interfaces, human decision aids, and neurostimulation-based enhanced training systems. We also use our models to develop novel, brain-inspired sensor exploitation, machine learning, and control algorithms, and to develop low size, weight and power brain-based processing hardware for resilient autonomous systems, dexterous robots, and threat warning applications.

HRL offers a competitive salary and benefits package, a small company atmosphere, and an ideal work location overlooking the Pacific Ocean. We also provide a collaborative technical culture committed to producing the leading R&D in the world.

Interested candidates are requested to apply on line at HRL's website (http://www.hrl.com/careers/cars_jobs.html).  Due to the large number of resumes that we receive from various sources, HRL has chosen to only accept employment inquiries submitted through our website. Please contact Dr. Praveen Pilly (pkpilly at hrl.com<mailto:pkpilly at hrl.com>) for any questions related to this job opportunity. Applications will be accepted and reviewed until the positions are filled.
