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


Full-Time Staff Openings


Neuroengineering Hardware/Software Developers

We have openings for both entry level and experienced hardware and/or software developers to work on our systems neuroscience and neuroengineering research applications.

No specific neuroscience experience is necessary, as all training will be provided on the job.
These positions are well-suited to those with industry experience in software or hardware who are looking to pivot to contribute to the forefront of neuroscience research.

Neural Data Architect

The Stanford Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute and the Vice Provost and Dean of Research is looking to hire a Neural Data Architect to help research groups manage research data more optimally.

This individual will be guided by Paul to deploy data best practices and cutting-edge tools to deliver data storage and data analysis solutions to neuroscience research labs.

Must be proficient in working with data spanning local systems, supercomputing environments, and cloud resources.

Would ideally have experience working with neural data. PhD preferred. Apply here


Stanford Trainee Openings


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.


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.
