Mentoring Mission

  • training scientists and engineers who will play pivotal roles in academic, industrial, organizational, and governmental entities
  • developing and honing mentorship skills within each group member to facilitate the training of new students
  • fostering a group of colleagues who will engage in collaborative and transparent science and engineering

On Equity

  • A top priority is to ensure that all trainees feel welcome, safe, and that they belong in the group.
  • All trainees are supported individually, specific to their background and experience, so they may be on equitable footing.
  • Trainees are welcome from all genders, ethnicities, socioeconomic environments, and other protected (and nonprotected) classes.
    • particularly those traditionally underrepresented in STEM


Neuroengineering Software Developer

We are looking to hire student developers for work on LiCoRICE.

Student developers will be working on feature development and systems integration with various neural acquisition systems across multiple research labs at Stanford.

Applicants should have familiarity with Linux and Python. Helpful, but not required, skills include embedded systems, networking, memory management, and interprocess communication. Start date is flexible and offers will be made on a rolling basis based on fit. Interested students may apply here.

Volunteer Software Developer

Since LiCoRICE is open source, we also welcome volunteers from anywhere in the world to contribute to development. If interested, please email Paul a CV, university transcripts (if you have been a student in the last three years), and a brief description of the relevant skills you have and why you are interested in contributing to LiCoRICE development

Graduate students

The group welcomes rotation students throughout the year. Common PhD programs are Bioengineering, Electrical Engineering, and Neurosciences; but all interested students are welcome.

In general, Stanford does not admit graduate students directly to research groups, but to PhD programs. Potential students with an interest in the group are encouraged to apply to a PhD program in Bioengineering or Electrical Engineering for the best chance of admission. To maximize the chance of admission to any PhD program at Stanford, it is advised to check the option that permits sharing the application with other programs.

Undergraduate students

The best time for undergraduate involvement is in the summer through a research internship. The group generally offers REU opportunities for Stanford undergraduate students through Bioengineering and Electrical Engineering. Interested students are encouraged to apply to both programs to maximize their chance of working with the group.
