The Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE) is an NSF Engineering Research Center focused on developing implanted neural devices to benefit persons with disabilities. We are seeking a post-doctoral fellow/research scientist to work within the Neuroethics Thrust on ethical issues raised by implantable neurotechnologies.
The responsibilities of the Fellow will be divided between:
• Service to CSNE: Working closely with the Ethics Thrust faculty and ERC investigators to consider ethics challenges and solutions throughout the conceptualization, funds-seeking, execution, and reporting phases of research and translation; and,
• Independent Research: Developing a portfolio of independent research and publications on ethical challenges in the domain of neural engineering. The slate for independent research is open, but conceptual or empirical ethics research related to brain-computer interface technology will be encouraged.
The start date for the position is Fall 2018, though an earlier or later start date will be considered. This is one year position with possible renewal for a second year.
Applications will be reviewed beginning July 31st and will continue until the position is filled.
