MIT Lincoln Laboratory Tech Staff in Lexington, Massachusetts
The Human Health & Performance Systems Group focuses on objective, technology-based human-centered solutions to measure, model and modify cognitive and physiological function for enhancement, sustainment, or recovery. This goal is accomplished through three broad technical areas: health and resilience monitoring, trauma care, and performance enhancement. Research in all areas includes capability gap analysis, advanced sensing, machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms, biologically-based modeling, prototyping, system integration, and field testing of systems to monitor the human state, predict outcomes, and intervene to improve health and performance. Typical goals include increasing physical, cognitive and psychological performance and resilience of end users in their operational environments; measuring, modeling, and modifying the brain to mitigate neurotrauma and neurodegeneration of end users after exposure; and developing human-machine interfaces for enhanced end user performance and communication within groups. This highly interdisciplinary group draws on skills from biology, physiology, cognitive science, neuroscience, psychology, biosignal processing, engineering, machine learning and artificial intelligence, computer science, physics, and medical research areas. Primary government sponsors and partners are in the Departments of Defense, Veterans Affairs, Homeland Security, NASA, the National Institutes of Health, and the National Science Foundation.
The Bioengineering Systems and Technologies Group is searching for a candidate to join the Neurocognitive and Psychological Health Analysis Team and participate in and lead projects related to detecting, monitoring, and rehabilitating psychological, neurological and sensory (e.g., auditory, visual, vestibular) disorders, neurotrauma, and cognitive overload and fatigue. Analysis involves features based on mechanistic neuro-biophysical and neuro-motor computational modeling, neuromorphic (software and hardware) simulations, neural interface (e.g., EEG) technology, and machine learning coupled to brain imaging and neural tracing representations. We seek nonintrusive interactive interfaces to maximize effect of treatment and training and maximize resilience. Interfaces can take the form of neural and physiological wearables, sensory feedback therapies, and virtual humans and environments.
Technical Staff Opening in Neurocognitive Analysis, Modeling, and Simulation
The candidate will assist in developing neural-science-based algorithms, brain and human computer interfaces, and computational models, as well as data collection and analysis. Background is required in advanced signal processing and machine learning. Background is desired in neuroscience (preferably modeling of neuro-motor and sensory systems and the neural basis of speech perception and production and vision). It is also desirable that the candidate have skills in neuromorphic computing (software and hardware) at both neural system and neural cell levels for real-time neurocomputational simulations. Candidate should also demonstrate abilities that include programming with MATLAB, Python, and/or C++, as well as statistical analysis and machine learning (scikit-learn, PyTorch, Tensorflow) capabilities. The candidate should a hold a Ph.D. or Sci.D. in Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Neurocognitive Science, Speech/Hearing Sciences, or a similar technical field.
