Human Neurophysiology Researcher

Are you interested in applying your knowledge of human neurophysiology to help develop brain machine interfaces?

Are you motivated by being part of a world-class, multidisciplinary team within an applied research setting?

If so, we're looking for someone like you to join our team at APL.

We are seeking a neurophysiologist with machine learning and signal processing expertise to help us develop state-of-the-art strategies for humans to control wearable systems. You'll join our team of neuroscientists, physicists, electrical and software engineers in our mission to develop the next generation of noninvasive brain-machine interface (BMI) systems.

As a Human Neurophysiology Researcher...

• Your primary responsibility will be to lead research and development into state-of-the-art real-time decoding strategies for brain-machine interface systems.
• You will develop signal analyses to validate the functionality of novel neural signal acquisition hardware systems.
• You will communicate information about planned experiments and the results of data analyses to internal and external stakeholders and research sponsors.
• You will acquire neural signals and behavioral data from human participants performing cognitive, sensory, and motor tasks.
• You will design and perform novel analyses of neural signals collected during cognitive, sensory, and motor tasks.

You meet our minimum qualifications for the job if you...

• Have a Ph.D. in neuroscience, biomedical engineering, or a related discipline.
• Are familiar with brain electrophysiological signal processing and applying machine learning algorithms to neural signals.
• Have strong verbal and written communication skills.
• Have experience acquiring neural signals and behavioral data from humans.
• Have experience programming in MATLAB, Python, and/or C/C .

•You are able to obtain a Secret level security clearance. If selected, you will be subject to a government security clearance investigation and must meet the requirements for access to classified information.
•Security clearance eligibility requires you to be a U.S. citizen.

You meet our desired qualifications for the job if you...

• Have experience analyzing functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS), electrocorticographic (ECoG), electroencephalography (EEG), magnetoencephalography (MEG), local field potentials (LFPs), and/or spiking neural signals.
