[Job title and job descriptions]
Job title, available positions:
Opening for Research Scientist or Postdoctoral Researcher, one position

Research Scientist:
Carries out research and other work in accordance with team research themes. Basically defined as those with a doctoral degree more than 5 years.

Postdoctoral Researcher:
Carries out research and other work in accordance with team research themes under the direction of supervisors. Basically defined as those with a doctoral degree of 5 years or less.

Job description:
We seek a highly motivated research scientist or postdoctoral researcher to develop machine learning techniques for estimating brain states from non-invasive neuroimaging data such as EEG and fMRI. Through such methodological development for neuro-technologies, we aim to contribute to mental healthcare in daily life and neuroscience. Examples of our current interest include (but not limited to):

・Robust analysis techniques for multi-modal brain data (e.g. predicting fMRI network activity from EEG signals based on simultaneous EEG-fMRI recordings)
・Hierarchical dynamical models for EEG data by extending the tractable neural network model for extracting EEG spatial features (Hirayama et al., ICML2017)
・Statistical techniques for extracting and visualizing personal characteristics of brain functional networks (Hirayama et al., 2016; Takagi et al., NeuroImage 2019), and transfer learning for neuroimaging data from different users (Morioka et al., NeuroImage 2015)

We have access to various multi-modal brain data as well as multi-sensor data obtained in daily living environments from close collaborators (experimental neuroscientist and computer science researchers) for developing and testing machine learning techniques.
