We are looking for two enthusiastic researchers to work on our project on Multimodal neuroimaging biomarkers throughout the migraine cycle: towards neurofeedback training for personalized anti-migraine treatment, at the Institute for Systems and Robotics – Lisboa, at Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa, in collaboration with Hospital da Luz Learning Health and iMM – Instituto de Medicina Molecular João Lobo Antunes, and funded by Programa Operacional POR Lisboa 2020 with reference LISBOA-01-0145-FEDER-029675).


The project aims to: 1) uncover multimodal neuroimaging biomarkers of the the different phases of the migraine cycle using a combination of functional and stuctural MRI as well as EEG; and 2) develop a neuroimaging-based neurofeedback system for preventive therapy of migraine. The research assistants will contribute to the development of methods for the integration of simultaneous EEG and fMRI data.


The candidates should have: 1) an MSc degree completed by the date of the call in Biomedical Engineering, Medical Physics, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Physics, Neuroscience, or related areas; 2) experience with EEG and/or MRI, and/or machine learning, and preferably also with neurofeedback and/or BCI; 3) availability for an interview.


The researcher will receive a contract of 6 months, extendable up to 12 months, with a monthly stipend of 989,70€.

Hosting conditions:

The researchers will be hosted at LaSEEB – the Biomedical Engineering Lab of the Institute for Systems and Robotics – Lisboa (https://www.laseeb.org/). LaSEEB offers a rich, interdisciplinary research environment wihtin the top engineering school in Lisbon, with strong collaborations with the Lisbon medical school and state-of-the-art medical imaging facilities. Besides the participation in the project activities, the researcher is also expected to be actively involved in the academic life of the institute, including the engagement in conferences and seminars.


The call is open until December 18th 2019.
