Job offer: Postdoctoral Research Associate

Post by stede »

The Neuropsychology Lab at the University of Oldenburg (Germany) is seeking to fill the position of a

Postdoctoral Research Associate / Research Associate
(wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin / wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter, E13 TV-L, 100%).

We are seeking a postdoctoral research associate with a strong background in brain-computer interfaces (BCI). The project involves the development of a fully mobile auditory BCI. A key focus will be in the development and evaluation of unobtrusive EEG acquisition technology that is motion-tolerant and can be used in daily-life situations for the monitoring of auditory attention and cognitive states.

The Neuropsychology Lab conducts research into the underpinnings of higher visual, auditory and motor functions. We apply non-invasive neurophysiological recording techniques, with the majority of studies using the electroencephalogram (EEG) as method of choice. Our lab features several state-of-the-art stationary high-density EEG systems, eye-tracking, a near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) system and access to MRI and MEG. Several fully mobile, smartphone-operated wireless EEG systems are available as well.
Candidates must have an academic university degree in Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or a closely related field. Analytical skills, programming skills in Matlab, experience with Machine Learning and expertise in single-trial EEG analysis is required. Hands-on experience in BCI paradigm development or EEG sensor development is beneficial, as well as knowledge of BCI2000, BCILAB or OpenVibe software. An interest in auditory psychophysiology and a background in neuroscience is a plus but not strictly required. The position is suitable for part-time work, can be filled immediately and is available for initially two years with the aim of extending.

The successful candidate will be affiliated to the Cluster of Excellence Hearing4All and the Department of Psychology within the School of Medicine and Health Sciences. Oldenburg has an international reputation in hearing research and hosts for instance the Fraunhofer Group Hearing, Speech and Audio Technology. Many international and interdisciplinary research groups provide an attractive scientific and social environment.
