Lab at the cutting edge of neuroscience and neurotechnology looking for a
programmer to keep us at the cutting edge! The lab has two general
pursuits: discover the neural basis of touch and proprioception – how do
patterns of activation in the nerve and in the brain mediate our ability to
feel objects by touch and sense the position and movements of our limbs in
space? – and to develop a somatosensory neuroprosthesis – How can we
recreate the sense of touch by stimulating the nerve or the brain. See
http://bensmaialab.org for additional information regarding the lab and the
exciting work we are doing. Ideally, looking for a motivated, intelligent
individual who works well with people, someone who might be able to make a
long term commitment to the lab and help us build something special.

Responsible for interfacing the various machines in the lab (robots,
sensors, data acquisition systems, etc.) with computers and with each other
to run neurophysiological and behavioral experiments with human and
non-human primates.

Bachelor's degree in computer science or a related field of engineering

One year of relevant programming experience required.
Experience developing, implementing, debugging and maintaining applications
Two years of professional programming experience preferred.
Experience developing applications using C++, Matlab, Python, Java, MySQL,
Visual Basic, and/or any other object oriented programming language
Experience building and debugging electronic systems preferred but not
Knowledge of electromechanical systems preferred but not required.
Interest in and/or knowledge of neurophysiology preferred but not required.
