Center for Bioelectric Interfaces (Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience)

The Higher School of Economics Center for Bioelectric Interfaces in Moscow, Russia invites applications for postdoctoral research positions in the field of neuroimaging and neurointerfaces. The tasks range from  designing novel, more efficient methods for solving the inverse problem of electro- and magnetoencephalography (EMEG) using both classical and novel machine-learning based techniques for development of invasive bidirectional electrocorticographic interfaces in collaboration with our clinical partners.


The job involves:

  • working under the direct supervision of Director of the Center for Bioelectric Interfaces, Dr. Alexei Ossadtchi and its Academic Advisor Dr. Mikhail Lebedev
  • pursuing their own research in parallel with working on the Center for Bioelectric Interfaces research projects in several broad areas:

o  Invasive bidirectional ECoG-based neurointerfaces

o  EEG and MEG inverse modelling

o  EEG and MEG based connectivity analysis

o  Neurointerfaces, neurofeedback and real time EMEG based neuroimaging

  • writing research papers for international peer-reviewed journals in co-authorship with the members of the Center
  • participation in organization of the events and other contribution to the Сenter’s development and promotion of its activity
  • public presentations of candidate’s own research to the researchers in the field and the broader academic community
  • some teaching is encouraged, though not required.


The Center for Bioelectric Interfaces is a part of the newly established Institute for cognitive neuroscience and offers access to numerous neuroimaging and neuromodualtion facilities such as high density EEG, MEG, high density electromyography, navigated TMS, tDCS, tACS, fMRI and MRI. 



  • a PhD from an international research university in such fields as: mathematics, physics, electrical engineering, computer science
  • a strong background in mathematical data analysis techniques, signal processing, solving ill-posed inverse problems with traditional and novel techniques including the use of deep learning approaches
  • ability to work in a team,
  • fluent English
  • relevant experience in EEG and medical image analysis is a plus although not required for initial consideration


General conditions for Post-Doctoral Research positions can be found here. Appointments will be normally made for one year.


A CV and research statement should be submitted via online application form and two letters of recommendation should be submitted by the referees directly to fellowship@hse.ru by February 15, 2019. Please note that direct applications to the hiring Laboratory may not be reviewed.
