Position: Technology Integration Research Fellow
Institution: University College London
Department: UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology - Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: We seek a highly motivated individual to help us exploit the exciting opportunities of OP-MEG, a ground-breaking wearable brain scanner that permits whole brain millisecond measurements of neural activity even while a person is mobile. The appointee will be involved in all aspects of OP-MEG. A specific focus will be on developing means to integrate immersive, interactive virtual reality, and other hardware, with OP-MEG to facilitate a range of potentially transformative cognitive neuroscience projects. These include spatial navigation, experiencing and recalling real-life events, as well as clinical projects involving patients with memory deficits such as amnesia
Requirements: Applicants must have, or be close to obtaining, a PhD in Physics/Engineering/Computer Science/Neuroscience or a related discipline, or an equivalent level of industrial/commercial experience. Very strong practical and theoretical problem solving abilities are essential, as is evidence of high quality research and development activity, and independent original work. Advanced programming skills (eg, in Matlab, python or related languages) are also required. Experience of working with MEG/EEG is highly desirable
