Brain-computer interfaces*



*Postdoctoral Researcher Contract* (up to 27 months)

*Gross monthly Remuneration:* 2.128,34 Euros

*Call open* until 25th February 2019

The Institute of Systems and Robotics of the University of Coimbra 
(ISR-UC) opens a call to hire a Postdoctoral Researcher, under the 
research project nº. 030935 “B-RELIABLE: Boosting reliability and 
interaction on brain-machine interface systems integrating automatic 

*Goals and research topics to develop*

This project aims to investigate and develop new signal processing and 
machine learning methods in the context of brain-computer / 
brain-machine interfaces (ICC / ICM) based on electroencephalography 
(EEG). Particular focus will be given to the research of an EEG signal 
called "Error Related Potential" (ErrP), which occurs naturally in the 
brain as a response to errors, and its application in communication and 
mobility assistance systems for people with motor impairment, in 
advanced driver assistance systems, and in neuro-rehabilitation systems 
for children with neurodevelopmental disorders.

We are looking for candidates with the following *profile*:

- PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering, or Biomedical Engineering, 
or Computer Engineering, or closely related area;

- Proven experience in signal processing and classification of 
electroencephalographic signals and in the development of brain-computer 

- Good programming skills in Matlab and at least in one of the following 
languages: Python, C / C++, C#;

- Experience in participating in scientific research projects and in the 
supervision of non-graduate students and/or research fellows;

- Proficiency in spoken and written English;
