Neuro-engineering/computing and Cyber-human Systems

This position is now closed.

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Northeastern University invites applications for open positions at all levels, with a preference toward senior levels. We seek exceptional candidates addressing problems in neuro-engineering/computing and cyber-human systems, with expertise broadly in one or more of the following areas:

  • Invasive and noninvasive brain interfaces
  • Human-machine interaction, rehabilitation and assistive technologies
  • Biologically inspired computing
  • Artificial/computational sensing
  • Big data analytics, visualization and learning
  • Cyber physical systems and networks

The successful senior candidate should be an established researcher with a strong record of funding, peer reviewed publications, and strong technical leadership. Outstanding candidates at the assistant professor level will also be considered.


A Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering or a closely related field to one of the above listed expertise areas by the start date is required. Successful candidates will be expected to develop strong independent research programs and to excel in teaching in both our undergraduate and graduate programs.
