Doctoral Candidate positions in Neuroscience and Neurotechnology (also advanced MSc or BSc students may apply)

Aalto University is a community of bold thinkers where science and art meet technology and business. We are committed to identifying and solving grand societal challenges and building an innovative future. Aalto University has six schools with nearly 11 000 students and nearly 400 professors. Our campuses are located in Espoo and Helsinki, Finland.              

One of the focus areas of Aalto University School of Science is Neuroscience and Neurotechnology. Research and teaching in this area is most active at the Department of Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering http://nbe.aalto.fi/en/ , located at the Health Technology House. We have developed several world-leading technologies and have pioneered their use in scientific experimentation and clinical applications. The technologies developed include magnetoencephalography (MEG), electroencephalography (EEG), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), special techniques for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and innovative combination of different methodologies. The projects are well-funded by the Academy of Finland, Erkko Foundation, the European Union Horizon 2020 Future and Emerging Technologies, and several smaller foundations.

We now aim to develop advanced methods and hardware for multimodal imaging of human brain using MRI, EEG, and TMS. We are looking for highly motivated students to work in three ambitious projects with high potential impact:

  • Development of shim coils for 3T MRI. Tasks include numerical simulations, hardware construction, neuroscience experiments, and clinical applications.
  • Simultaneous EEG and fMRI. Tasks include experimental design, behavioral data and imaging data collection and analysis.
  • Simultaneous TMS and fMRI. Tasks include hardware development, experimental data, data collection and analysis.

Requirements

  • Major in electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, computer science, physics, or mathematics
  • Preferred taken courses: linear algebra, signal processing, optimization, electromagnetism, electrical circuits, statistics
  • Good english

The position is located in Health Technology House in Otaniemi, Espoo.
