Our group at the Div. Functional and Restorative Neurosurgery (Head: Prof. Gharabaghi), University Hospital Tuebingen, Germany, unites neuroscientists, engineers, computer scientists and physicians following a common goal: to improve the lives of patients with neurological disorders using state-dependent and adaptive stimulation of the nervous system. To achieve this goal, we combine online analysis of electrophysiology (e.g. EEG, LFP) with non-invasive (TMS, tACS, tDCS, FES, NMES) or invasive (DBS) stimulation. In order to strengthen our team, we are looking for:
Postdocs and PhD students (f/m/d)
for a three years period with the possibility of extension.
As a translational group, we work closely together with biomedical companies to gain access to new tools, combine basic studies on healthy subjects with clinical studies on patient populations, and apply the knowledge gained from these studies to develop and refine these new tools.
Representative work from the last months: Naros et al. Mov Disord. 2018, Khademi et al. Cereb Cortex. 2018, Kraus et al. J Neurosci. 2018 and Guggenberger et al. Brain Stimul 2018.
What you can expect:
Design and evaluate novel brain stimulation paradigms. Investigate the effects of these paradigms using electrophysiological data. Expand the understanding of the human brain.
Opportunity to work with in vivo data. Examine electrophysiological signals from patients and healthy controls. We support your work with a broad range of pre-built analysis tools and assist you in designing your own approaches.
Access to state-of-the-art technologies to generate reliable results.
Join a team that is united by a vision: to enhance the understanding of the human brain in order to invent and implement more effective therapies.
3-year contract, third-party funded in accordance with the German public service collective agreement pay scale and your previous experience.
Master’s degree or PhD in the field of Neuroscience, Cognitive Science, Biology, Computer Science, Engineering, Data Science or related fields.
Solid understanding of statistical data analysis, digital signal processing and/or programming principles.
Programming skills in Python or MATLAB and/or experience in applying statistical tools, e.g. machine learning for data analysis.
Experience with relevant techniques, i.e. tDCS, TMS, NMES, M/EEG, and/or EMG.
Motivation letter including CV, publication record, names and e-mail addresses of three professional references, Transcript of Records, TOEFL scores or other evidence of English and/or German proficiency.
We offer remuneration in accordance with TV-L (collective wage agreement for the Public Service of the German Federal States) in addition to all the customary benefits granted to employees working in public services. Severely handicapped persons with equal qualifications are given preferential consideration. The University of Tübingen is eager to increase its quota of female scientific staff, and therefore emphatically requests women to apply for this position. The Administration of the University Hospital is responsible for all employment matters. Personnel appointments will be made pursuant to the fundamental stipulations of the legal statutes for universities in Germany. Interview expenses are not covered.
Application deadline is February 28th, 2019.
