Imperial College is seeking to make three appointments at the interface between neuroscience and engineering. Two of these appointments will be joint lectureships between the Departments of Bioengineering and Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE). The third appointment will be a joint lectureship between the Departments of Bioengineering and Computing.

Applicants should have a strong record of academic achievement and be able to direct an exciting and independent research programme in an area that synergises with our current activities.
For the Bioengineering/EEE appointments specific areas of interest include:
Position 1
Advanced optical and electrophysiological methods for reverse engineering of neural circuits, neuroimaging, brain machine interfaces, miniaturised sensors, sensory coding and sensorimotor control.
Position 2
Signal processing for advanced cellular neuroimaging or electrophysiological technologies, machine learning approaches to neuroscience, neural mechanisms of multisensory integration, reverse engineering of the visual system and cognitive brain processes and developing brain-inspired engineering solutions.
Position 3
Computational neural modeling; including large and multiscale brain models, sensory coding, multisensory integration, neural dynamics and neuroimaging for brain modeling.
Outstanding candidates working in other areas at the interface of Bioengineering and Electrical Engineering/Computing are also encouraged to apply. Senior appointments will be considered for exceptionally qualified individuals.
Applicants must have a PhD (or equivalent) and an outstanding research record as demonstrated by their publications. Teaching experience is also highly desirable.
