When: Summer of 2024, exact dates flexible.

Duration: 12 weeks.

Sonera is building state-of-the-art magnetic sensors that can be used in ambient conditions at room temperature while maintaining high sensitivity. We are looking for a talented and driven neuroscientist to join our research efforts and work closely with our hardware and software engineers towards developing a novel biosensing system using these solid-state magnetic sensors.

The work will initially concentrate on assisting with non-invasive physiological experiments to measure skeletal muscle and heart activity on human subjects using both electrical and magnetic sensors. As the experimental procedure becomes streamlined and the dataset becomes comprehensive, the focus will transition towards analyzing collected data to assess the capabilities of magnetic sensors, compare electrical and magnetic signals, and use machine learning techniques to enable various applications.

The ideal candidate will have experience with neuroscience research in both collecting and analyzing physiological data. This person will be comfortable with hands-on troubleshooting, handling and analyzing large, complex datasets, and learning quickly on the job.
