PhD Studentship Neuromuscular Systems: Neural interface for intracortical speech prosthesis
Posted : 11 April 2022
Closes : 31 May 2022
Location : University College Dublin

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship in the area of neural engineering with the
Neuromuscular Systems Research Lab at University College Dublin. The PhD project is part of
a larger collaborative project between UCD, the Tyndall Institute Cork and Neural Signals. The
overall aim of the project is to develop a prototype neural interface for recording intracortical
data for a speech prosthesis that enables real-time analysis of cortical data using a fully
implanted device. The PhD candidate will be involved in the development of algorithms for on-
device neural data signal analysis and processing. The project will commence in Sept 2022.

Who Should Apply
Applicants should have, or expect to obtain, a first or upper second class honours Bachelors or
Masters degree in Electrical/Electronic/Computer or Biomedical Engineering (or a related
discipline). Suitable candidates will have a strong interest in biomedical/neural engineering
and neuroscience. Excellent analytical, computational and communications skills are essential.
Experience in neural signals, data analysis and machine learning are also an advantage.

The PhD studentship covers tuition fees for EU applicants and a tax free stipend of €18,000
per year. An annual allowance is provided for research consumables and for conference

How to Apply
Please send a cover letter describing your experience and interest in this project (1 page
max), CV, and academic transcripts before May 31 st 2022 to
