Postdoctoral Researcher: Brain Computer Interfacing for ALS patients
Institution: Radboud Universiteit
We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher with a strong background in signal processing and machine learning, evidenced by a PhD degree in this domain. The field in which you obtained your Master’s degree should preferably be one of the engineering sciences or neuroscience. You must be able to work in a highly multidisciplinary team, being able to communicate not only with BCI experts, but also with commercial and medical partners. Furthermore, you must be able to manage your own project and at the same time contribute to the supervision of, for example, PhD students.
BCIs have been around for quite some time, but until now the full potential of the technology has not been realised due to poor information transfer rates, long training times, and inconvenient hardware. The Noise Tag BCI recently developed by our team overcomes these problems: there is no training required, fewer and dry electrodes (meaning a trendy ’wearable’ EEG cap) can be used, the method has robustness (e.g. against movement) and high accuracy. This patented technology is based on broadband evoked potentials and has already been used successfully when in 2016 the team won the assistive technology challenge at the Dublin symposium for ALS. The primary application of the technology will be for patients with locked-in syndrome, such as those in late stages of ALS, where the lack of means to communicate is a serious problem. The BCI technology has huge potential to improve their quality of life by restoring communication and interaction with their environment.
You will be responsible for the integration of various methods and their optimisation, delivering a clean and clear MATLAB prototype that will be turned into production code.
The Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour focuses on state-of-the-art cognitive neuroscience, using a multidisciplinary approach, and offers excellent lab and neuroimaging facilities, PhD supervision and courses, and technical support. The project will be embedded in the Donders research theme ‘Neuronal Communication’. The project will be embedded in the research programme of the Centre for Cognition of the Donders Institute, which is part of the Faculty of Social Sciences, one of the largest faculties at Radboud University in Nijmegen. The institute offers excellent research facilities, such as advanced EEG and eye movement registration, lab space, excellent access to fMRI and other neuroimaging facilities, and has an in-house technical workshop. The Donders Institute is an equal opportunity employer, committed to building a culturally diverse intellectual community, and as such encourages applications from women and minorities.
What we expect from you
- you have a strong background in signal processing and machine learning in the context of electrophysiological (EEG) data;
- you have preferably experience with and knowledge of canonical correlation analysis, reconvolution, and template matching classification;
- you have experience with developing and debugging MATLAB code and are able to write and elaborate clean and well-documented modular programs;
- you have worked on online, real-time processing projects with data streaming;
- you are able to formalise methods mathematically and to communicate them in a clear way, as demonstrated by first-authored articles;
- you can bridge the distance between fundamental concepts and theories, on the one hand, and practical implementation and evaluation of these concepts, on the other;
- you can think out of the box, distinguish main lines from details, and provide structure to your work;
- you have excellent multidisciplinary team working and communication skills;
- you have some expertise in other programming languages (e.g. C, Python, Java) and platforms (Unity, IOS).
What we have to offer
- employment: 0.8 – 1.0 FTE;
- a maximum gross monthly salary of € 4,757 based on a 38-hour working week (salary scale 11);
- in addition to the salary: an 8% holiday allowance and an 8.3% end-of-year bonus;
- duration of the contract: 2 years;
- you will be classified as a Researcher, Level 3 in the Dutch university jobranking system (UFO);
- we offer you a challenging job at a dynamic, high-ranking and ambitious university.
The method can be seen at work on the DondersBCI Channel on YouTube. The research is part of a Knowledge Utilisation project in which the MindAffect company will bring the technology to the market. Future opportunities may evolve that allow your being hired by the company.

Institution: g-tec neurotechnology, USA, Inc.
Seeking an ambitious physical therapist to join our flagship team in
Albany, NY. We provide a revolutionary new stroke therapy, recoveriX, that combines traditional approaches with Brain-Computer Interface technology to facilitate fast and effective recovery of function. Our burgeoning practice provides a motivated environment where we believe in empowering our patients to achieve new heights of recovery success through active participation in their therapy. We are looking for a therapist with a keen desire to learn and grow with the practice, and experience working with the health insurance industry to bill for and aid with reimbursement of client expenses.
recoveriX is the first rehabilitation system for stroke patients that
pairs mental activities with motor functions. The brain receives
visual and tactile feedback in real-time, and that is what makes
rehabilitation so effective. For example, if a stroke patient imagines
a hand movement while receiving visual feedback through a virtual
avatar, and tactile feedback through electrical muscle stimulation at
the same time, then these patients might regain the ability to grasp
The activation of both sensory and motor functions is caused by mirror neurons. This stimulates brain plasticity and the brain will be
supported in learning new ways to move the affected limbs again. The
unique approach of recoveriX leads to a much higher level of motivation for the patient and rehabilitation is most effective.
Repeated training increases the healing of the brain and leads to
faster recovery from stroke-caused impairment.
The recoveriX system includes all components required to perform
training, classifier generation, virtual-reality neurofeedback and
functional muscle stimulation. It can be set up quickly, and is very
easy to operate, making it a practical tool for daily use with
• Current NY state license
• Candidates with a background in stroke rehabilitation therapy
• Working knowledge of Windows/Excel/PowerPoint
• Excellent interpersonal skills
• Work collaboratively as a team with other on-site staff
• Experience with health insurance reimbursement/billing a must
• 2 – 5 years experience with clinical practice recommended
• Experience with EEG and/or neurofeedback a plus, but not required
To apply, or for more information, email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Institution: University of Pittsburgh
Posting Expires: 6/30/2017
Applications are invited for an NIH funded
postdoctoral position combining eye tracking and intracranial EEG
recordings in humans to study and decode visual perception, including face and object recognition and social and affective perception, at the University of Pittsburgh, USA.
The research will focus on decoding the dynamic neural code that
underlies the recognition of faces, bodies, objects, facial
expressions, and other social and affective stimuli and how this
information guides, and is guided by, eye movements. Of particular
interest is how this information is coded in interactive neural
circuits at the level of large-scale brain networks. The neural data
will primarily be local field potentials/ event related potential from
intracranial surface electrodes (electrocorticography, ECoG), cortical depth electrodes, and subcortical depth electrodes in humans in conjunction with eye tracking.
