Brain Machine Interface Faculty
Qualified candidates are expected to have expertise in neural engineering, brain-computer interfaces, next-generation electrode technologies or innovative physiology techniques to work with neurobiologists, stem cell biologists, bioengineers and clinicians at HMRI and throughout the Texas Medical Center.
- PhD in biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, physics, neuroscience, computer science or related fields.
Experience in experimental brain interfaces, multi-electrode or optogenetics-based neurophysiology or other neural prosthetic applications is preferred.
- Novel engineering/biological aspects of neural plasticity that include electrode and circuit design, current steering, closed-loop control, neural interfacing and modeling is preferred.
- Candidates should possess neuroscience and machine learning/statistical/signal processing background.
- Experience working with human research subjects and/or animal subjects is preferred but not required.
- Candidates with expertise in the therapeutic effects of neuromodulation in neurological and neuropsychiatric conditions using systems neuroscience, modeling, and/or functional imaging techniques.
Synapse Development and Plasticity Faculty
Qualified candidates are expected to have expertise in neural plasticity, synaptic function and remodeling to work with existing neurobiologists, stem cell biologists, bioengineers and clinicians at HMRI and throughout the Texas Medical Center.
- MD or PhD in molecular neuroscience, physiology or cell biology. Particular areas of training that are preferred include neural plasticity, sensorimotor mechanisms, neural coding, regeneration or neural signaling.
- Novel high-throughput platforms or in vivo system biology approaches are both considered important aspects of expertise in neural plasticity that should include a molecular understanding of synapse and network plasticity in the context of development, neural injury or neural regeneration.
- Experience in molecular or cellular biology of synapse development, plasticity or regeneration in experimental mammalian or non-mammalian model systems is preferred.
- Experience with working with human research subjects, tissues or materials is considered a strength but not a requirement.
