Postdoc Researcher, PhD, MSc, and/or BSc: Alto University
Postdoc Researcher, PhD, MSc, and/or BSc Student Positions at Department of Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering at the Alto University.
Overview: The goal of the ConnectToBrain project is to develop next-generation multi-locus transcranial magnetic stimulation techniques that allow to shift the locus (site in the brain) of the stimulation electronically and the algorithms to stimulate brain networks in a feedback-controlled way. This European Research Council (ERC) Synergy project is conducted as a close collaboration between Aalto University, Finland, University of Chieti-Pescara, Italy, and University of Tübingen, Germany.
We are looking for exceptional candidates to participate e.g. in the following tasks:
- Designing and building multilocus TMS (mTMS) coil arrays that will eventually cover most of the cortical mantle and will allow accurate real-time control of the location, direction, intensity and timing of millisecond-time-scale sequences of brain-activating pulses.
- Designing and programming the mTMS user-interface software and the interface of this software to the stimulation hardware and to the software for signal analysis and AI control systems.
- Algorithms for brain connectivity and real-time brain activity estimation based on high-density EEG and MRI for brain-state-dependent and closed-loop transcranial magnetic stimulation.
Requirements: Successful PhD studies in Physics, Mathematics, or Engineering (e.g., electrical, automation, control, materials, computer science, signal processing, AI)
Doctoral student position
Requirements: Successful MSc studies in physics, mathematics, or engineering (e.g., electrical, automation, control, materials, computer science, signal processing, AI);
Undergraduate student position
Requirements: Successful studies in physics, mathematics, or engineering (e.g., electrical, automation, control, materials, computer science, signal processing, AI);
Preferred starting time: as soon as possible or convenient.
The work will be financially compensated according to the Department of Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering (Aalto University) guidelines for a period of 2+2 years (postdoc), 1+3 years (doctoral student), or 6 months (MSc student), or a more flexible arrangement, e.g., including part-time work for students with on-going undergraduate courses.
Send your application including a brief description about yourself and your motivation, experience, and studies. Applications should be sent at the latest on December 15, 2019.
