The Institute of Cognitive Science at the Ecole Normale Supérieure (Paris)
is offering

- A research engineer position to work on EEG, Machine Learning and
Brain-Computer Interfaces.

You will be part of a team of engineers and researchers in cognitive
neuroscience working on the measurement of EEG neural signals to infer
various cognitive functions (perception, decision-making, attention,
learning, sleep).
You will mainly be in charge of optimizing the online detection of specific
EEG markers of learning and auditory attention, and will be in charge of
optimizing a BCI loop between a virtual environment and a portable EEG
You will be affiliated to the Brain and Consciousness team of Pr Sid Kouider
( Our lab has been successful in using
EEG signals to resolve important issues within the field of cognitive
neuroscience (with recent publications in Science, Current Biology, Nature
Communications, etc). We are now using our expertise in cognitive
neuroscience to develop, in collaboration with the industry, some innovative
serious game applications.

This project is carried out under the framework of the NeuroVirtual projet
(2015-2017), bringing together the fields of cognitive neuroscience and
serious games. Our lab is located in central Paris, within the historical
Quartier Latin.

Candidates should have at least a master or engineering degree in a relevant
domain (Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science,
Applied Mathematics, Physics, or a closely related field) and a solid
training in BCI and fast calculations for real-time applications. Strong
analytical and programming skills, experience with Machine Learning and
expertise in EEG signal processing are absolutely required. Experience with
real virtuality and/or cognitive neuroscience are desirable but not a

The appointment is for one year initially but can be extended later on.
The net salary will range between 2 100 and 2 500 euros/month depending on
