Job ID


The Wyss Center for Bio and Neuroengineering is seeking a Brain-Machine Interface Engineer / Scientist to join an international team of scientists, clinicians and engineers. The individual will work towards the development of a system to process multimodal signals and to generate control signals for human medical devices used to evaluate or restore lost nervous system function. The resulting real-time system will enable read out of neural activity in various forms, generate complex representations of that activity, and provide closed loop control signals for a range of devices.
– Design, implement and test novel, real-time data processing and information extraction algorithms from multimodal data, including but not limited to EEG, ECG, local field potentials and spikes; – Develop, implement and test automated methods and analytical tools to deliver insights and hypotheses for multimodal data sets with direct application in the clinical space; – Develop and test control algorithms to integrate the system with other devices, such as robotic limbs, displays, or neural / muscle stimulators; – Work with clinicians and engineers to deploy the developed algorithms in a patient/clinician setting.
Required competence and experience:
– BS or MS in Neuroscience, Computational Neuroscience, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering or related discipline with at least 5 years (BS) or 3 years (MS) of work experience in an industrial or academic setting – Strong background in Systems Neuroscience and neural signals (single cell electrophysiology) – Familiarity with high-throughput, real-time data acquisition systems, preferably from several manufacturers – Experience with Brain-Machine Interfaces and an interest to improve their functionality - Proficient in C/C++, and preferably Python, MATLAB/Simulink, - Excellent coding standards (commenting, documentation, version control), - Experience with AI - Strong communication skills in English (French a plus)
