Past Positions

  • TWO full-time Marie Skłodowska-Curie PhD positions for research and development of new data analysis methodologies for 1) brain dynamics, and 2) autonomous nervous system activity in mixed reality settings. Applications will be in the fields of computational neuroscience, neuroeconomics, psychophysiology, and affective computing. Deadline November 2018.  For more information click here.


  • Post-Doc position available at the Research Center ''E. Piaggio'' of the University of Pisa (Pisa, Italy), related to the modeling, design and development of wearable haptic devices. Selected candidate will work on the modeling, design, development and correct/optimal exploitation of the information from systems for kinematic/force tracking of human/robotic hand; wearable systems for haptic interaction or tele-operation, with information about softness and/or texture. Part of the work will be also devoted to the numerical model of contact of human finger with different external stimuli for haptic exploration.
    The deadline for application is May 9th 2014.

PhD Research fellowship in Neuroengineering

We are looking for a motivated Masters student with an interest in neuroscience and neuroengineering. The PhD research topic will be centered on the development of novel algorithms for estimating functional connectivity over large networks at cellular resolution. The work will integrate delipidation methods, imaging techniques and electro-physiological information for the reconstruction of a morpho-functional connectivity map of a particular region of the brain (i.e. mouse cerebellum), based on 3D-MEA signal recordings and structural a priori knowledge. 

Requirements:  Masters degree in Biomedical Engineering, Information Engineering, or  Computer Science

Deadline June 2017. Please send a cv with references to:
