*One full-time Ph.D. Position in *Biomedical Engineering* at the *University
* of *Rhode Island

The Neural Processing and Control Lab (NeuralPC Lab) at
the University of Rhode Island (URI), Department of Electrical, Computer,
and Biomedical Engineering (ECBE) has one Ph.D. position opening in the
field of neural signal processing, machine learning algorithms towards
developing cutting-edge brain-computer interface (BCI)
systems. The position offers a competitive stipend and tuition waiver for
the graduate assistants. The nature of this position will provide
the graduate students with opportunities to work on multidisciplinary
collaborative projects.

We are seeking highly motivated and talented graduate research students
whose research interests lie at the intersection of neural signal
processing and machine learning algorithms. Some of our current research
projects are: Investigating functional neural dynamics underpinning
auditory processing dysfunction through multiscale recording-stimulation
frameworks, investigating electro-vascular neural patterns of motor and
non-motor brain functions in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
(ALS), developing hybrid BCI systems guided by personalized algorithms for
patients with ALS, developing graph-based data fusion frameworks towards
guiding hybrid BCIs, and investigating brain-body synchronization patters
in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD).

The successful candidates must have a master’s degree in
electrical engineering or biomedical engineering, a background in
neural engineering, signal processing, machine learning algorithms, and
extensive programming experience with Matlab. Background in BCI and control
systems, cognitive neuroscience and other programming languages such as C++
are desired but not mandatory.

The ECBE department offers programs in BS, MS, and Ph.D. degrees. URI’s
College of Engineering offers innovative undergraduate and graduate
programs with comprehensive doctoral research. The main campus is located
in Kingston, an established, family-friendly, small community only five
miles from Narragansett Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Kingston lies in close
proximity to popular tourist destinations, like Narragansett, Boston, and
New York, yet still retains its small town feel.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, resume, a brief summary of the
current and proposed research, GRE, TOEFL/IELTS (for international students
only), official/unofficial master and bachelor academic transcripts, and
three letters of recommendation to Dr. Yalda Shahriari (
Yalda_shahriari at uri.edu). Please send all your documents as a single PDF
file. Applications will be considered until the positions are filled.
