Open M.S. and Ph.D. Positions at the Neural Interfaces lab

There are a couple of open graduate students (PhD or MSc) positions in the Neural Interfaces lab lead by Prof. Izhar Bar-Gad:

  1. Identification of involuntary movements from video: In a joint project with Schneider children’s hospital we collected videos from Tourette syndrome patients displaying involuntary facial movements (motor tics).

Research definition: Unsupervised learning algorithms for identifying repeating behavioral motifs from the video.

Required background: Computer vision, Machine learning.

  1. Identification of animal behavior from a kinematic timeseries: We record kinematic signals (accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer) from animals during natural behavior. This information is consequently used to decode the behavior and link it to brain activity.

Research definition: Unsupervised learning algorithms for identifying repeating behavioral motifs from the kinematic signals.

Required background: Machine learning, Time series analysis.
