The lab of Prof. Michel at the University of Geneva is offering a
postdoctoral position financed by the Swiss National Science Foundation for
up to two years to work on clinical neuroengineering projects aimed at
restoring communication and independence of people with tetraplegia and
locked-in syndrome using brain-controlled assistive devices and prostheses.

The successful applicant will be supervised by Dr. Tomislav Milekovic, a
junior group leader under the senior supervision of Prof. Christoph Michel.
They will work to develop and advance brain-computer interfaces based on
electroencephalography (EEG) and intracortical microelectrode array
recordings. These brain-computer interfaces will utilize adaptive decoders
in order to restore independence of people with locked-in syndrome.

The ideal candidate will have:

1.     Background in computational/theoretical neuroscience, physics or
mathematics

2.     Experience in the quantitative analysis of electrophysiological
neural signals (EEG, ECoG, LFP, spikes)

3.     Experience in assembling and maintaining brain-computer interface
systems

4.     Leading brain-computer interface experiments with human or animal
subjects

5.     Experience in developing and using neural decoders

6.     Experience in C/C++ software development

The qualified candidate will benefit from joining a very dynamic and
multidisciplinary group working at the interface of neuroscience,
engineering and prosthetics. They will collaborate with several labs of the
newly founded Campus Biotech in Geneva, and be strongly supported by the
Wyss center for Bio and Neuroengineering led by Prof. John Donoghue.
University of Geneva provides state-of-the-art facilities is one of the
leading technical universities worldwide. In addition, University of Geneva
offers competitive postdoctoral salaries ranking amongst the highest in the
world.

Applications including a CV, statement of research interests, and the names
and full contact details of two referees should be sent to
