About the research centre or Inria department
The Inria Centre at Rennes University is one of Inria's eight centres and has more than thirty research teams. The Inria Centre is a major and recognized player in the field of digital sciences. It is at the heart of a rich R&D and innovation ecosystem: highly innovative PMEs, large industrial groups, competitiveness clusters, research and higher education players, laboratories of excellence, technological research institute, etc.
The HYBRID team at Inria Rennes (https://team.inria.fr/hybrid/) is seeking a highly qualified young researcher with engineering experience and motivation in Brain-Computer Interface and real-time Electro-EncephaloGraphy (EEG) processing. The project aims at improving upper limb function after stroke by using EEG-Neurofeedback coupling with Virtual Reality and haptic interfaces.
This position is opened by Inria, Rennes, France, within the frame of a collaborative project aiming at combining several neuroimagery methods (EEG, fMRI, fNIRS) in order to improve the state-of-the-art in brain rehabilitation. The used methodological paradigm is neurofeedback with close connections to Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI), visualization and medical image and signal processing. In the scope of the project, novel computational/statistical models, signal processing, empirical protocols and visualizations will be proposed and studied, partly via their computational implementations and tested on ambitious clinical protocols.
The role of the post-doctoral fellow in this project will be:
- To design all or part of an EEG-Neurofeedback platform and couple it with Virtual Reality interfaces and haptic devices
- To participate to experimental and/or clinical trials to assess the effectiveness of the novel approaches in improving motor imagery or upper limb motor function in stroke patients.
- To analyze the EEG data of participants.
- To write scientific papers.
- To represent the team in various meetings and conferences.
Candidate should hold a PhD in Computer Science/Neurosciences. He/she should demonstrate relevant experience with EEG-NeuroFeedback or EEG/BCI, with programming (MATLAB, R, Python), and/or with the design of Virtual Reality tools or haptic devices.
