*Postdoc in BCI signal processing*

The Rudolf Magnus Institute in Utrecht, The Netherlands is looking for a
highly motivated postdoc interested in neural signal processing for Brain
Computer Interfacing.

The Utrecht BCI group, led by Prof. dr. Nick Ramsey, is part of the
Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery at the University Medical Center
Utrecht and participates in the nationwide BrainGain Consortium, which is
devoted to application of Brain Computer Interfaces for patients and healthy
individuals. The main focus of the group is conducting neuroscience research
towards an invasive BCI application for paralyzed patients. We perform
experiments with both healthy subjects and patients (~10 patients with
electrode implants available for research each year). Available techniques:
128-channel EEG systems for extracranial and intracranial (ECoG) recordings,
fMRI (1.5, 3 and 7 T human Philips systems), TMS and 64-channel
intraoperative recordings in awake neurosurgery. Our highly
interdisciplinary group consists of 4 postdocs, 10 PhD students and 6 master
students, who have a background in neuroscience, psychology, biology or
physics and their own expertise in the research field.

The postdoc is expected to investigate new ECoG signal processing techniques
for BCI purposes, as well as for cognitive neuroscience research. He/she
will work in close collaboration with neuroscientists and needs to have
excellent communication skills.

The candidate is likely to have a PhD in biomedical engineering,
computational neuroscience, electrical engineering or physics, with a record
of publications. Solid experience in signal processing of any kind and
excellent programming skills in Matlab are required. Experience in
neuroscience is not a prerequisite, but we expect the candidate to acquire
knowledge of underlying psychological and biological processes.

Earliest starting date of the two-year position is July 1st, 2009.  Application
deadline is September 1st, 2009.  Applications and information requests can
be sent to Prof. dr.  Nick Ramsey, Rudolf Magnus Institute of Neuroscience,
Dept. of Neurology and Neurosurgery, Division of Neuroscience, University
Medical Center Utrecht, Room G.03.122, Heidelberglaan 100, 3584 CX, Utrecht,
Netherlands, n.f.ramsey at
