Clinical neurotechnology research assistant (CNRA). The Neural Prosthetics Translational Laboratory (NPTL) at Stanford University is an interdisciplinary research group pursuing fundamental neuroscience and neuroengineering with the goal of 1) understanding how the brain generates movements and 2) building brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) to help people with paralysis by restoring the ability to move and speak. We are seeking a Clinical Neurotechnology Research Assistant (CNRA) to perform work in support of our BrainGate 2 feasibility study of intracortical neural interface systems for persons with tetraplegia. The CNRA will play an integral role in running experimental sessions in our participants’ homes, including experimental setup, data collection, and ensuring participants’ comfort and well-being. The ideal candidate will have knowledge of research computing hardware and software, strong attention to detail, and an outgoing and caring attitude. Ancillary tasks include data/video preparation for internal and external presentations, reporting of adverse events to the clinical trials team, manuscript editing and review, and laboratory maintenance. Depending on the CNRA’s interests and available time, there may be opportunities for deeper involvement in the research including technical development, data analysis, etc.
