Fully-funded MS, PhD and post-doctoral positions are available in the Neural Engineering and Control (NEC) Laboratory directed by Prof. Han-Jeong Hwang at Kumoh National Institute of Technology, Republic of Korea. Successful candidates will be involved in the projects, aiming at developing practical brain-computer interface (BCI) systems.


Candidates must have strong motivation and enthusiasm for interdisciplinary projects and collaborate with the members of the NEC Laboratory. They should have an engineering-related degree or equivalent (e.g., biomedical, electrical, or computer engineering). Those who have degrees in physical science might be also considered (e.g., physics or applied mathematics) if they have storing motivation and enthusiasm to learn new knowledge.

In particular, for the MS/PhD position, a background in neural signal processing, programming (Matlab), machine learning will be considered an advantage (Prerequisites: CGPA: 3.3/4.0, TOEIC > 750 or equivalent for other official English exams (ex: TOEFL, IELTS)).
