| ||Job description: Brain engineering research center is providing an excellent opportunity for PhD students who are interested in systems/cognitive neuroscience for performing his/her research dissertations at IPM. The lab is broadly interested in vision and neural engineering with a specific focus on electrophysiological studies on primate vision, computational neuroscience, and visual prosthesis. The candidates should be a PhD student in electronic and computer engineering or basic science such as mathematics and neuroscience.
Benefits: The ideal applicants will be supervised by Dr. Reza Lashgari, Prof. Jose Manuel Alonso, and Prof. Jacqueline Gottlieb. The candidate students will be supported financially for three years academic research program. We also provide an opportunity for candidates to attend to the partner labs abroad for 6 months.
Good scientific communication and ability to work in team
Fluent in spoken and written English
Full time available in the lab
Interest in neuroscience
Special skill requirements
For computer engineering PhD students strong programming skills, familiarity with software methodology, and a background in pattern recognition, machine learning, or image processing is needed.
For electrical engineering PhD students strong background in electronics, good knowledge about VLSI and MEMSs and skills in digital signal processing is needed.
For neuroscience PhD students strong background in physiology or biology, general knowledge in electrophysiology, and familiarity with signal processing and Matlab is needed.
For mathematics PhD students strong programming skills and familiarity with general biological modeling techniques (e.g. probability, statistics, dynamical system, graph theory, topology) is needed.
Contact: If interested, please send a CV, brief statement of previous research work and current research interest, and two letters of recommendation to Dr. Reza Lashgari (email@example.com).
