Postdoctoral/Research Associate in Computational Neuroscience/Brain-Machine Interface Systems/Smart Rehabilitation Robotics, University of Houston, USA

Two highly motivated Research Associate/Postdoctoral Fellows are sought to join the group working on computational neuroscience, brain-machine interface systems and rehabilitation robotics. The research at the Laboratory for Non-invasive Brain-Machine Interface Systems(http://www.facebook.com/UHBMIST) is led by Professor Jose 'Pepe' L Contreras-Vidal (http://www.ee.uh.edu/faculty/contreras-vidal).

Projects involve a) investigating the development, in human infants and non-human primates, of mirror neuron cortical dynamics using computational models and EEG-based neural interface science, and b) developing a brain-machine interface system based on EEG to control a powered robotic exoskeleton for stroke rehabilitation (see http://www.nibib.nih.gov/NewsEvents/News/PressReleases/17September12).

Both NIH-funded positions are available immediately and salary is per NIH guidelines based on experience.

A PhD in biomedical engineering/bioengineering, electrical engineering, robotics, physics, or a related field is required. Candidates with strong engineering expertise preferred. Experience in EEG, neural interfaces, machine learning, and/or robotics preferred. Excellent written and oral communication skills are required.

The University of Houston is a Carnegie-designated Tier I Research University, has been named one of the nation's best institutions for undergraduate education and the top entrepreneurship program In U.S., according to The Princeton Review, and is a member of the Texas Medical Center - the largest in the world. Houston is the 4th largest city in the nation and is a vibrant place for biomedical and energy research, the arts, entrepreneurship and is served by two airports.

Interested candidates should email a single pdf file consisting of a cover letter summarizing major research experience and career goals, CV, and contact information (email and phone) for three references to Prof. Contreras-Vidal (jlcontreras-Vidal@uh.edu), Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, University of Houston, N308 Engineering Building I, Houston, TX 77204-4005. The University of Houston is an equal opportunity employer and educator.
