PhD Scholarship in Non-Invasive BCI at EPFL

EPFL, one of the two Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology 
(http://www.epfl.ch), has immediate openings for four PhD students in 
the field of brain-computer interaction (BCI) to work in the lab of  
Prof. José del R. Millán (http://people.epfl.ch/jose.millan). Millán’s 
lab conducts research on non-invasive BCI and neuroprosthetics. His lab 
is part of the newly-launched Center for Neuroprosthetics 
(http://actualites.epfl.ch/presseinfo-com?id=661&newlang=eng), which 
carries  out research at the interface of neuroscience and 
bioengineering in an environment of both theoretical and experimental 
research, rich for the development of novel enabling technologies as 
well as for seeking deeper understanding of fundamental mechanisms 
underlying the field of neuroprosthetics.

The successful candidates will work in the framework of European and 
Swiss projects related to the development of novel non-invasive BCI for 
multimodal interaction. They will also investigate the underlying 
machine learning and signal processing principles for robust 
recognition of different  cognitive processes.

The candidates should have a masters degree (or equivalent) in computer 
science, electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, or related 
fields. She or he should have good background in  statistical machine 
learning, signal processing, EEG analysis, and/or human-machine 
interaction, and/or intelligent/adaptive robotics. Excellent 
programming skills are a must. Candidates must also have a good command 
of spoken/written English language.  The positions are available 
immediately and will remain open until suitable candidates are found. 
Starting date is February 1, 2009, or at the earliest convenience 
afterwards.

Application: Interested candidates should send a short letter of 
motivation, a detailed CV, and  names of 3 references to Prof. José del 
R. Millán (jose.millan AT epfl.ch).
