Postdoctoral Research Associates

As part of our ongoing clinical trials of an intracortically implanted neural interface system (BrainGate), 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 developing 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. 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, Stanford University, and the Providence VA Medical Center.

If interested, please email Daniel Rubin, M.D., Ph.D. ([email protected]) to learn more.

Postdoctoral Research Associates

We have postdoctoral research opportunities in areas that include, but are not limited to analyzing neuronal ensemble activity toward the improvement of decoding intended movement, harnessing intracortical signals for the development of communication interfaces for persons who are locked-in, developing new real-time decoding strategies, signal processing, and post-processing algorithms, and developing the interfaces for converting cortical neuronal activity into the real-time movement of a multi-articulated prosthetic limb, robotic limb/assistive device, or functional electrical stimulation system.

Inquiries should be directed to the laboratory of Leigh Hochberg, MD, PhD, c/o Ms. Beth
Travers.

T32 Postdoctoral Training Program

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.

Please refer any questions regarding the program or eligibility to Drs. Jonathan Rosand and Leigh Hochberg.
