The Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MSRM) at the Technical University of Munich is looking for excellent postdoctoral researchers that seek an opportunity to build up and run a Neural Interfacing Lab within MSRM. This initiative will take place in close collaboration with medical experts in neurology, technologists, and researchers from diverse backgrounds. You will have the opportunity to work closely with highly ranked MSRM professors, including Werner Hemmert, Bernhard Wolfrum, Jakob Macke, Gordon Cheng, and Sami Haddadin. Please consider applying if you have a background in biomedical engineering, computational neuroscience, neural engineering, or the like with a focus on neural interfaces. For this position we are especially looking for individuals with experience in neural signal processing and interpretation of multichannel (Utah Array) recordings for the purpose of robotics and prosthetics control.
In the Neural Interfacing Lab, MSRM researchers will work to develop the next generation of neural interfaces for controlling smart assistive devices like prostheses, for example by conducting research into novel massively parallel and/or particle-based bidirectional interfaces to neural cells. The focus will be on developing theoretical mathematical modeling foundations as well as devising novel materials, which are both biocompatible and have the right communication characteristics. Furthermore, control algorithms and technologies will be developed that allow for coordinated control of particle swarms, their reorganization and bidirectional signal processing using the human neurophysiological system.
