You must have:
- A doctoral degree in a relevant field. "Relevant" is defined very broadly. Neuroscience, engineering, psychology, physics, computer science, and many other disciplines are present in our lab.
- Strong programming skills. MATLAB or Python is essential. C/C++ (and derivatives), LabVIEW, and scripting languages could be useful but are not required. Prior experience with data acquisition hardware, prototyping systems (Arduino, Teensy, Pi, etc.) and/or creating real-time systems would be helpful but is also not required.
- Excellent verbal and written communication skills. Much of our work requires explaining complex technical concepts to non-domain-experts.
- Evidence of substantial capability for independent work, problem-solving, and initiative-taking.
- Interpersonal skills appropriate for collaboration in a very multidisciplinary and highly diverse environment.
It will be helpful (and we will give your application priority) if you have:
- Prior experimental work in animal or human neuroscience
- Prior work with psychiatric patient populations or the biological mechanisms of mental illness
- Skills with electronics or computer hardware, whether design or repair
- Experience with brain-computer interfaces and/or brain decoding paradigms
