Job vacancies in Neuroinformatics (PhD and post doc)

The Cognitive Engineering Lab of Singapore Institute for Neurotechnology (SINAPSE) (http://www.sinapseinstitute.org/) is seeking to appoint one Research Fellow (RF) and one Research Assistant (RA) for a period of 1 year; (positions to be filled as soon as possible). Remuneration and benefits will be based in NUS standards and candidates’ qualifications and years in service.

Research Topic

• Our group is leading a project aiming to develop virtual reality (VR)-based brain augmentation systems including realistic VR based simulations and real-time brain states analysis. The simulation applications will be developed (in Unity3D Game Engineer) for virtual reality system to provide various stimuli. A remote EEG system will be used to monitor the brain activity in real time.

• The aims of the study is to identify reliable and robust individual biomarkers of cognitive states for VR-based training scenarios and compare the training effects with traditional 2-Dimensional computer based simulations to understand if VR-based trainings lead to better user-experience and performance.

Scientific profile for the Research Fellow Position

• Recent Ph.D. degree in Computer Science, Human-Computer Interaction or Cognitive Science
• Publications in Computational Intelligence and Machine Learning Methods and/or Brain Computer Interaction with applications
• Bachelor or Master Degree in Computer Science or Computer Engineering
• Knowledge of experimental design in cognitive-related experiments.

Scientific profile for the Research Assistant Position

• Bachelor or Master Degree in Computer Science or Computer Engineering
• Experience of game research or game development (experience of VR preferred, both Oculus Rift and room-size VR)
• Experience of Unity3D game engineer, proficiency in C++ or Javascript (experience with middleVR preferred)

Personal profile

• Good communication and English writing skills is essential
• Interdisciplinary communication and team competence
• Creative and highly self-motivated.

Contact

• Applications should include CV, statement of experience and motivation, and names of referees (for the RF position). Informal inquiries prior to application are welcome. Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled. 
• Applications should be sent, preferably as single pdf file by email, to prof Tassos Bezerianos (lsiba@nus.edu.sg).
