2 Postdoctoral researcher positions available at the Bioengineering Institute of the University Miguel Hernández, Alicante, Spain, in the framework of the Project “Neural Active Visual Prosthesis for Restoring Function” (NeuraViPeR) funded by the European Commission (FET Open). This project involves several universities and research organisations from 5 European countries (Switzerland, Belgium, Netherland, Germany and Spain), and aims to develop new technologies for restoring vision in blind patients.


Postdoctoral researchers will be involved in the development of innovative approaches for stimulating the visual cortex with high-electrode-count flexible microelectrode arrays, in the design of a bioinspired encoder optimized for a cortical visual neuroprosthesis, and in the creation of adaptive machine learning algorithms for a new brain-computer interface technology. Furthermore, they will collaborate in the framework of a clinical trial designed to study the electrical parameters needed for eliciting visual perceptions through electrical stimulation of the human cortex using intracortical microelectrodes in blind volunteers (https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02983370).


Candidates must be highly motivated and able to work in a highly interdisciplinary environment. Strong background in at least one of the following areas is preferred: visual prostheses, brain-computer interfaces, multielectrode arrays, neuroscience, neuroengineering or computational neuroscience. Experience in neuroprostheses, clinical trials, deep learning techniques and programming skills will be advantageous.


Interested applicants, with a strong motivation in applied neuroscience and neural engineering, should contact Prof. Eduardo Fernández and submit by email (to: e.fernandez@umh.es): a curriculum vitae and a brief description of their background and scientific interests.
