We will be at FENS 2018 in Berlin conducting interviews from the 7th to the 12th of July  - if interested email tzanos at northwell.edu<mailto:tzanos at northwell.edu> with your CV/resume to schedule an interview.

Associate Engineer (MS Level) / Postdoctoral Fellow / Neural Engineer

The Neural Decoding and Data Analytics Lab at the Center for Bioelectronic Medicine, Feinstein Institute for Medical Research is currently recruiting for a Neural Engineer / Neuroscientist (multiple levels).

The lab focuses on neural recordings and data analysis methods to gain insights into decoding and encoding mechanisms of the brain and peripheral nerves to and from stimuli, actions and other physiological functions. The lab utilizes a variety of techniques from signal processing, machine learning, optimization, neurophysiology and bioelectronic systems for closed-loop neural recording and stimulation, both in health and in disease models. The ultimate goal is to develop neuromodulation therapies that will observe the state of the organism and the organ system that is targeted, to deliver individualized treatment of diseases in real-time.

The successful candidate will develop computational tools, take part in neurophysiology experiments and collect, organize and analyze data, collaborate with other research staff and publish and present data in a timely manner. They will also work collaboratively with other investigators to facilitate their scientific research and training. Furthermore, they will participate in various types of institute and community activities and may apply for grant funding and/or patents as appropriate.

Job Responsibilities Include:

Develops computational tools for neuroscience research.
Perform neurophysiology experiments
Performs bioelectronic medicine research.
Collaborates with other research staff.
Responsible for the planning, collection, organization, analysis and interpretation of research data related to one or more projects
Job Type: Full-time


Associate Engineer (MS Level) - Masters in Engineering, Computer Science or Statistics required
Postdoctoral Fellow - Doctorate degree in Engineering, Computer Science or Statistics (Ph.D) required
Neural Engineer - Masters in Engineering, Computer Science or Statistics + 3 years of experience required, Doctorate degree preferred

Authored/co-authored research papers and/or scientific abstracts, required
Experience with various signal processing and machine learning methods, required
Strong programming skills of Matlab, required, Python, C++, preferred
Research experience in neurophysiology/neuroscience/animal surgery, preferred
Knowledge of data analysis software (e.g. Matlab), preferred
