The Idiap research institute (http://www.idiap.ch) seeks *several* PhD
students in the field of brain-computer interfaces (BCI) to work in the
team of Prof. José del R. Millán (http://people.epfl.ch/jose.millan).
The doctoral student will work in the framework of European and Swiss
projects related to the development of noninvasive brain-actuated
devices in areas ranging from communication to neuroprostheses, and from
interaction to rehabilitation. Projects aim at developing practical BCI
technology, but will also investigate basic questions such as online
adaptation, cognitive processes, multimodal signal fusion, and
The successful candidate will hold a masters degree (or equivalent) in
computer science, electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, or
related fields. She or he should have good background in statistical
machine learning, signal processing, EEG analysis, human-machine
interaction, and/or intelligent/adaptive robotics. Excellent programming
skills are a must.
Selected candidates will become doctoral students at the EPFL (Swiss
