The Wyss Center for Bio and Neuroengineering (, a research and translation center for neurotechnology, is seeking a Neural Engineer to join an international team of scientists, clinicians and engineers who are developing advanced neurotechnology for human applications. The individual will work both independently and collaboratively in a team towards the development of a system to process multimodal signals and to generate control signals for human medical devices used to evaluate or restore lost nervous system function. The resulting real-time system will enable read out of neural activity in various forms, generate complex representations of that activity, and provide closed loop control signals for a range of devices.

Job Description

In his/her position, the Neural Engineer will:

  • Design, implement and test novel, real-time data processing and information extraction algorithms from multimodal data, including but not limited to EEG, ECG, local field potentials and spikes;
  • Develop, implement and test automated methods and analytical tools to deliver insights and hypotheses for multimodal data sets with direct application in the clinical space;
  • Develop and test control algorithms to integrate the Wyss Center’s real-time processing system with other devices, such as robotic limbs, displays, or neural / muscle stimulators;
  • Work with clinicians and engineers to deploy the developed algorithms in a patient/clinician setting.
To apply, please send your CV and a covering letter to before July 27th2019
