Careers - Postdoctoral Research Scientist, Brain Computer Interface (PhD University Grad) | Oculus

Postdoctoral Research Scientist, Brain Computer Interface (PhD University Grad)

Research | Redmond, Washington

You're a computational neuroscientist with a deep knowledge of the brain and a passion for working on breakthrough brain computer interface (BCI) technology. You are interested in how to decode neuro activities using physiological sensors including optical, electrical, and magnetic sensors and state of the art machine learning algorithms. At Oculus Research you'll be involved in building cutting-edge prototypes and user experiences that explore the future of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). Work alongside expert research scientists, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers and software engineers to create the technology that makes VR and AR pervasive and universal. Join the adventure of a lifetime as we make science fiction real and change the world.


  • Design and adapt BCI paradigms and montages for AR devices
  • Perform data analysis and modeling of multisensory data set, including EEG, fNIRS, and fMRI
  • Correlate multisensory data with cognitive functions
  • Working with leading academic researchers on advancing our knowledge of the brain and apply to BCI
  • Collaborate in a team environment across multiple scientific and engineering disciplines, making the architectural tradeoffs required to rapidly deliver BCI prototypes
  • Learn constantly, dive into new areas with unfamiliar technologies, and embrace the ambiguity of AR/VR problem solving

Minimum Qualification

  • Currently has or is in the process of obtaining a Ph.D. in computational neuroscience, or biomedicine, bioengineering, or experimental psychology with neuroscience focus
  • 2+ years experience with neuroimaging techniques including EEG and fMRI
  • 2+ years experience with statistical data modeling of biomedical data
  • Proven track record of software development, including shipping one or more products
  • Communication skills and demonstrated experience working across disciplines to drive optimal solutions
  • Must be available to start employment on or after January 2018.
  • Able to obtain work authorization in the United States beginning in 2018.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Computer language, and MATLAB experience
  • Familiarity with basic machine learning algorithms
  • BCI experience
