The postdoctoral research associate will assist in research activities under the direction of Professor Lan Luan in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Department of Bioengineerring, and as a part of the Rice NeuroEngineering Initiative. The NeuroEngineering Initiative is a multidisciplinary effort that involves eight Departments including Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rice University and other institutions.
The position requires taking a leadership role in the development in neurotechnology and their application to study disordered brain states. The research is interdisciplinary, including the development of multimodal neural interfaces that integrate the state-of-art electrical, optical and neuromodulation techniques, and their application in ischemic stroke models.

We seek greater representation of women, minorities, people with disabilities, and veterans in disciplines in which they have historically been underrepresented; to attract international students from a wider range of countries and backgrounds; to accelerate progress in building a faculty and staff who are diverse in background and thought; and we support an inclusive environment that fosters interaction and understanding within our diverse community.
Consistent with the National Research Council's report, Convergence: Facilitating Transdisciplinary Integration of Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Engineering, and Beyond, we are seeking candidates who have demonstrated ability to lead and work in research groups that demonstrate the knowledge, tools, and ways of thinking from engineering, mathematics, and computational, natural, social and behavioral sciences to solve societal problems using a convergent approach.
The George R. Brown School of Engineering ranks among the top 20 of undergraduate engineering programs (US News & World Report) and is strongly committed to nurturing the aspirations of faculty, staff and students in an inclusive environment.
