The Neuro-X Institute is soliciting applications for two faculty positions at the level of tenure track Assistant Professor in Brain-Computer Interfaces and Neural Engineering.
We seek candidates with research experience in neurotechnology, leveraging basic science knowledge and engineering principles to design the next generation of neural interface technologies and explore new approaches to bidirectionally communicate with the nervous system. Applicants are invited with a focus on at least one of the following areas: (i) Neural signal processing and machine learning, (ii) Implantable technologies, (iii) Micro/nanotechnology of neuro-transducers. The new faculty hires will lead research programs employing experimental and/or computational methods, with the intention to translate innovation into clinical practice.
The EPFL fosters interdisciplinary research and is committed to leading technological advances and translating innovation towards new interventions and therapies. We anticipate the two new faculty members will be able to build scientific collaborations within the newly-formed Neuro-X institute, STI institutes, the EPFL Center for Intelligent Systems, the EPFL School of Life Sciences, the EPFL School of Computer and Communication Sciences, and with partner hospitals along the Lemanic Arc.
Besides an outstanding research record, the candidates should demonstrate a strong commitment to excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Internationally competitive salaries, start-up resources, and benefits are offered.
Applications should include a cover letter with a statement of motivation, curriculum vitae, list of publications and patents, concise statements of research and teaching interests. Applicants should also provide the names and addresses of at least 3 referees who are ready to supply their letter of reference upon request. Applications must be uploaded in PDF format to the recruitment web site:
