*Description *
The Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MSRM) at the
Technical University of Munich is looking for excellent postdoctoral
researchers that seek an opportunity to build up and run a Neural
Interfacing Lab within MSRM. This initiative will take place in close
collaboration with medical experts in neurology, technologists, and
researchers from diverse backgrounds. You will have the opportunity to work
closely with highly ranked MSRM professors, including Werner Hemmert,
Bernhard Wolfrum, Jakob Macke, Gordon Cheng, and Sami Haddadin. Please
consider applying if you have a background in biomedical engineering,
computational neuroscience, neural engineering, or the like with a focus on
neural interfaces. For this position we are especially looking for
individuals with experience in neural signal processing and interpretation
of multichannel (Utah Array) recordings for the purpose of robotics and
prosthetics control. 

In the Neural Interfacing Lab, MSRM researchers will work to develop the
next generation of neural interfaces for controlling smart assistive devices
like prostheses, for example by conducting research into novel massively
parallel and/or particle-based bidirectional interfaces to neural cells. The
focus will be on developing theoretical mathematical modeling foundations as
well as devising novel materials, which are both biocompatible and have the
right communication characteristics. Furthermore, control algorithms and
technologies will be developed that allow for coordinated control of
particle swarms, their reorganization and bidirectional signal processing
using the human neurophysiological system.
About us *
Located in the prosperous capital of Bavaria and home to over 39000
students, the Technical University of Munich (TUM) is one of the world’s top
universities (top 4 European technical universities in THE World University
Ranking, top 50 in Shanghai Ranking, top 10 in Global University
Employability Ranking, etc.) and home to one of the most vibrant
environments in robotics. It is committed to excellence in research and
teaching, interdisciplinary education, and the active promotion of promising
young scientists. TUM benefits from the healthy mix of companies and
startups of all sizes headquartered in the region and is tightly connected
to regional research hospitals. The university also forges strong links with
companies and scientific institutions across the world. 
The TUM Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MSRM) is
directed by Prof. Sami Haddadin. The MSRM is a globally visible
interdisciplinary research center for machine intelligence, which is the
integration of robotics, artificial intelligence and perception. Its three
central innovation sectors are the future of health, the future of work, and
the future of mobility. More than 50 professors from various TUM faculties
cooperate within the framework of MSRM. 

*How to apply?*
The following documents are needed for applications:
• A motivation letter
• A detailed CV
• Email addresses of at least two references 

Interested applicants should send us the necessary documents via email to:
applications at msrm.tum.de quoting “Postdoc Application, Neural Interfacing
Lab” in the e-mail subject line. The positions will be filled as soon as
possible and only shortlisted candidates will be notified. Preference will
be given to applications received before August 30th, 2019.

TUM has been pursuing the strategic goal of substantially increasing the
diversity of its staff. As an equal opportunity and affirmative action
employer, TUM explicitly encourages nominations of and applications from
women as well as from all others who would bring additional diversity
dimensions to the university’s research and teaching strategies. Preference
will be given to disabled candidates with equal qualifications.
International candidates are highly encouraged to apply.
