The Center for Bioelectronic Medicine at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research in NY (http://www.feinsteininstitute.org/)  is building a multidisciplinary team to revolutionize medicine by determining the nature of neural control over molecular, cellular and organ functions of the body, the parts of the brain that regulate those nerves, and the signals that the brain receives to monitor cell and organ function. Projects will focus on determining which nerve fibers exert control, the types of signals those fibers use, and how these signals can be manipulated to treat diseases and conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, paralysis, Crohn's disease, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, diabetes, cancer and others.

We are currently recruiting for Staff Scientists and Postdoctoral Researchers in the field of neural data analysis and computational neuroscience. The successful candidates will work in the Center for Bioelectronic Medicine, directed by Chad Bouton, in the Neural Decoding and Data Analytics Lab, led by Dr. Theo Zanos. The candidates will work on projects involving development of novel signal processing and machine learning methods to gain insights into:

1. Decoding and encoding mechanisms of the brain and peripheral nerves to and from stimuli, actions and other physiological functions
2. Reinforcement learning approaches used to select neural stimulation parameters and optimize outcomes
3. Beam-forming, blind source separation, and other techniques to directionally transmit or receive neural signals in peripheral nerves
4. Neural circuits through numerical modeling and biomarker profile analysis

* PhD in Engineering, Computer Science, Statistics or a related field required; experience in one or more of the following areas required:
- Analysis of Neural Signals
- Computational Neuroscience
- Machine Learning (Systems Identification & Reinforcement Learning)
* Strong Matlab programming skills required, Python and C++ programming experience preferred.
* For the Staff Scientist position, applicants must have a minimum of three (3) years of relevant postdoctoral experience.

Please forward CV, cover letter and 2 references to CBEM at northwell.edu, with the subject line "Post-Doc / Research Scientist in the Neural Decoding and Data Analytics Lab".
