Join Our Team
Postdoctoral Research Associates
As part of our ongoing clinical trials of an intracortically implanted neural interface system, we seek enthusiastic individuals with expertise in computational and systems neuroscience, intracortical neurophysiology, machine learning, or neuroengineering to join our internationally recognized research team. Our work focuses on advancing state-of-the-art neural signal processing, encoding models and decoding approaches for brain-computer interfaces to restore communication and functional independence for people with paralysis. We also conduct fundamental human neuroscience research in movement control, cognition, and attention. As a highly multidisciplinary endeavor, our team includes a tight-knit collaborative group of neuroscientists, engineers, computer scientists, mathematicians, and clinicians with collaboration across Massachusetts General Hospital, Brown University, the VA Providence Healthcare System, Stanford University, Emory University, and University of California, Davis.
Postdoctoral research in speech decoding and neuroprosthetics – MGH, Brown University
This position will have a strong focus on developing advanced encoding and decoding models of human cortical activity related to speech and language. Fellows will join the rich research community at the Center for Neurotechnology and Neurorecovery at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, working in close collaboration with colleagues at Brown University and the entire BrainGate research consortium.

Postdoctoral research in machine learning for BCI communication and neuroprosthetics – Brown University, MGH
Areas of research include, but are not limited to, harnessing intracortical signals for the development of communication interfaces for persons who are locked-in, developing new real-time decoding strategies for computer and device interaction, and developing models and interfaces for converting cortical neuronal activity into the real-time movement of multi-articulated prosthetic limbs or robotic devices. Fellows will join the BrainGate research team at Brown University in close collaboration with colleagues at MGH, the Providence VA Medical Center, and other consortium research groups.

Postdoctoral research in soft robotics and neuroprosthetics – Brown University, MGH
This position will have a strong focus on developing and refining machine learning approaches to enable multidimensional neural control of wearable soft robotics including glove, elbow and shoulder prostheses. Fellows will join the Center for Neurotechnology and Neurorecovery at Massachusetts General Hospital working in close collaboration with the soft robotics research group of Dr. Conor Walsh at Harvard and with colleagues at Brown University and the BrainGate research consortium.

Research Software Engineer – Brown University
Working closely with our multidisciplinary team, this position is responsible for implementing and maintaining software capabilities of the BrainGate real-time BCI including instantiation of real-time signal processing and decoding algorithms, integration of devices (robotics, commercial software, environmental controls, speech synthesis engines, etc.) and other features required to accomplish ongoing BCI research and deployment in the home. As a member of the BrainGate team at Brown University, they will also provide engineering support to advanced research projects and help harmonize platform development efforts across the entire BrainGate research consortium.

Embedded Software Engineer – Brown University, Providence VA Medical Center
The embedded software engineer will apply their experience in FPGA programming and ARM / Linux programming to enable neural signal processing and streaming data flow through a novel, mobile processor built on a Xilinx Zynq-7000 SDSoC embedded system customized for BCI applications. They will join the BrainGate research & development team at Brown University for this multi-year assignment. For more information and to apply, click here.
Jonathan Rosand, MD, MSc and Leigh Hochberg, MD, PhD are now accepting applications for the NIH-funded T32 Postdoctoral Training Program in Recovery and Restoration of CNS Health and Function. The program is open to post-doctoral (MD or MD/PhD) clinician-scientists and post-doctoral (PhD) neuroengineers/computational neuroscientists to train under a multidisciplinary training faculty from anesthesia, biomedical engineering, computational neuroscience, neurology, neurosurgery, physical medicine and rehabilitation, psychiatry, and radiology.
The research and training opportunity includes a two year, T32-funded fellowship that usually begins in July.
