1 PhD position in project team INTERACT

Project description

In cognitive neuroscience, sound sequences are used as abstracted models for temporal and sensorimotor processing in individuals and multi-agent interactions. In engineering, Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) and Neurofeedback applications have been developed for providing users with alternative pathways of communication, as well as neurorehabilitation treatment protocols. Bridging these two fields, the goal of this project is the interdisciplinary development of a Brain-Computer Interface platform for investigating the human brain in continuous interaction with synthesized sound and music stimuli. e.g. the underlying neural dynamics of entrainment, temporal prediction, synchronization and adaptation.

You will be a member of the interdisciplinary project INTERACT in collaboration with partners from the Georgetown University Medical Center. Your task will be on the systems engineering side: development and validation of sound synthesis algorithms; development and validation of Brain-to-Sound interfaces; collaboration with researchers at Georgetown on implementing/transferring neuroscientific theories and models into algorithms and interfaces.

Requirements

You have your Master/Diploma degree in either Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Physics, or equivalent. You are proficient in MATLAB, C/C++, and Python. Prior experience in human study design, EEG data acquisition, EEG data processing and statistical analysis is an asset. You have knowledge in and a strong appreciation for music theory and sound synthesis (preferably active musician). You are fluent in verbal and written English (C1-level). Experience in scientific project management and proposal writing is an asset. We expect you to have good communication skills, the ability to work in a team and are willing to spend time abroad in the US.

Duration

The scholarship and appointment terms are consistent with the current rules for PhD degree students. The period of employment is 3 years. The approximate starting date is the 15th of August 2017, or soon after this date.

Application process

The deadline for the applications is the 15th of June 2017. Please send your applications (PDF files) with (1) a cover letter, (2) your CV with photo, (3) list of publications and (4) letters of recommendation (5) certificates including credit points and marks by email to
