BCI Graduate Research Assistantships at Old Dominion University
The Advanced Signal Processing in Engineering and Neuroscience (ASPEN) Laboratory at Old Dominion University (ODU) is seeking qualified and ambitious graduate research assistants for several funded Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) projects. Preference will be given to Ph.D. students with experience in signal processing, machine learning, and/or neural engineering, although outstanding Masters students will also be considered. Programming experience in Matlab and C++ is desired. A background in neuroscience is also desirable, but not mandatory. The research assistantships offer a competitive stipend and tuition waiver. Graduate research assistants will be expected to contribute to experimental design, data collection, data analysis, technical publications; and assist with supervising lab activities for BCI projects.
The ASPEN Lab collaborates with the Mayo Clinic Florida Neurology Department to conduct original Electrocorticographic (ECoG)-based BCI studies. The lab also maintains active collaborations with Wadsworth Center and several prominent BCI labs around the world. For more information on the ASPEN Lab visit: www.odu.edu/~dkrusien/. Recent graduates from the ASPEN Lab have accepted tenure-track faculty positions and postdoc positions at Columbia and UC San Francisco.
The Batten College of Engineering and Technology (BCET) at ODU offers MS and PhD degrees in Electrical, Biomedical, and Mechanical Engineering (among others). ODU is a state-assisted, Carnegie doctoral/research institution enrolling nearly 25,000 students. The University’s main campus is in Norfolk, Virginia, a major seaport. The University is in close proximity to various attractions including Virginia Beach, Colonial Williamsburg, Busch Gardens, and NASA Langley.
