Postdoctoral Research Fellow

We are looking to hire a postdoctoral researcher to contribute to our work studying the electrophysiological correlates of human cognition. The position requires a minimum of a two-year commitment.

The successful applicant will work on analyzing local-field potentials and/or single-unit neuron recordings in human subjects and contribute to the development of a brain-computer interface to modulate cognition using electrical stimulation.

Required Skills and Experience

  • Proficient MATLAB, Python or related software
  • Extensive experience with signal processing, preferably in human intracranial EEG recordings and/or single unit recordings

Preferred Skills and Experience

  • Strong background in statistics, including modeling neural systems
  • Experience with generating network models and characterizing patterns of network activity
