Postdoctoral Scholar in Neurophysiological Signals and Human-autonomy Teaming
- University of California Davis
- Location: Davis, CA
- Job Number: 7116837
- Posting Date: Nov 26, 2022
- Application Deadline: Open Until Filled
The postdoc will be supervised by Dr. Zhaodan Kong, an associate professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at UC Davis, and work closely with our collaborators, Drs.

The successful candidate will be responsible for conducting high-quality research to advance theoretical, algorithmic, and/or experimental foundations for the development of metrics and models for real time inference and prediction of trust in human-autonomy teaming. The candidate is also expected to work with our collaborators at CU Boulder as well as AFRL to validate the developed metrics and models in simulated environments. The candidate will be involved in the presentation and publication of the results to our sponsors, the academic community, and the public. If the candidate is interested in translational research as well, there might be opportunities for the candidate to interact and collaborate with (or even co-mentored by) other faculty members at the UC Davis Center for Neuroengineering & Medicine.
Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, Neuroscience, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or a related discipline. Successful applicants must have extensive experience with collecting and analyzing EEG data. We are looking for applicants with demonstrably strong research skills, ideally, with multiple publications in top conferences and/or journals. Expertise with human-autonomy teaming, machine learning, network theory, and dynamical system theory would be huge pluses. Due to our project timeline, only those candidates who are currently in the U.S. will be considered.
Please send application with CV, including publication list and contact information of three references, to [email protected] The position will be open until filled. Applicants should be available to start working on the project in winter/spring/summer of 2023.
