Jezelf continu blijven ontwikkelen vinden we belangrijk

Dit ga je doen

Two software engineers will participate in several Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) projects where we develop implantable and wearable neural devices in people with severe paralysis, so they can control a computer directly with their brain signals. The engineers will co-develop and create software for independent home use by people using a BCI. The software will need to 1) interface with BCI hardware using implantable and non-implantable BCI technologies; 2) perform real-time signal processing and machine learning on user’s brain signals, and 3) provide an intuitive user interface for computer control with brain signals. The engineers will play a key role in the multidisciplinary team of scientists. More on our work can be found at the BCI-website. Hybrid working arrangement is possible with 2 full days at UMC Utrecht and 3 days at home. Working hours can be arranged flexibly.

Our work frequently reaches the media. For recent news developments, see these three publications:
