BlindSight GmbH is accepting applications for the position of a (pre-doctoral) research fellow for its contribution within EU project "Adaptive Brain Computations".

The fellowship will last for a period of 2 years with the possibility of a 1 year extension of employment beyond the project life span. The position is available immediately.

Project Description

"Adaptive Brain Computations" is an EU funded consortial project investigating adaptive brain processes during motor and sensory learning and during disease related compensation of functionality. The consortium consists of 8 European academic and industrial partner organizations.The project is embedded within the EU "International Training Network" (ITN) concept and has a strong focus on network activities and broad neuroscience training for the project fellows, with exciting possibilities for international travel and extended secondment activities at world leading academic partner organizations. For more information on EU project "ABC", see  http://www.adaptivebrain.eu/

BlindSight Contribution

BlindSight GmbH is a small German enterprise specializing in biosignal/biomedical consulting and in the development and dissemination of methods and algorithms related to EEG/ExG analysis with a special focus on EEG/MR artifact detection and correction. BlindSight's contribution to project ABC is centered around the application of EEG/fMRI and consists of various activities ranging from conducting empirical EEG/fMRI studies to the development of an automatic "best use" EEG/fMRI analytical and artifact correction toolbox based on Matlab/EEGLAB.

Eligibility Criteria

Due to its nature as an EU FP7 and International Training Network project, applications for the position offered are subject to the following restrictions imposed by the EU:
*             Applicants must not be German nationals, nor must they have lived in Germany for more than 10 months within the last 36 months.
*             Applicants are equally welcome from EU citizens as well as from non-EU citizens.
*             Applicants must be within the first 4 years of their scientific career, starting with the first degree that satisfies german national eligibility criteria for entering into a PhD degree program/employment.
*             Applicants must not have completed a PhD degree at the time of employment. Partial or prefinal completion of a PhD degree/course is permissible.

Job Description

The fellow will perform EEG and EEG/fMRI related activities within project ABC:
*             Co-conduct studies in healthy and clinical populations and involving EEG and EEG/fMRI methodology together with our partners (primarily University of Oldenburg, Debener lab and University of Cambridge, Kourtzi lab).
*             Perform artifact correction and data analyses on the EEG/fMRI data collected. Participate in the publication of related study results in peer review journals.
*             Help create an online "EEG/fMRI Learning Toolbox" with reference data and reference algorithm implementation as well as automated "EEG/fMRI Analytical Toolbox", both as Matlab/EEGLAB.

Required Qualifications

The successful applicant should have the following qualifications:
*             A degree (Diploma, Master or equivalent) in a course of studies such as Neurosciences, Biological/Physiological Psychology, Biomedical Engineering or a related discipline such as Computer or Information Sciences.
*             Own theoretical and practical experience with EEG and MR, separately or in combination.
*             Interest in and a well founded understanding of the analytical methods involved in EEG/MR correction and analysis.
*             Good knowledge of EEG analysis methods, preferably with EEGLAB and/or BrainVision Analyzer Professional.
*             Proficiency with Matlab and preferably, also with C# and/or Python.
*             The ability to work independently and efficiently.
*             Proficiency in English. Knowledge of German is not required, but obviously welcome.

Application Details

*             To apply, please forward your application documents including a complete CV, all relevant degree certificates, a publication list and a list of two or more references via email to jobs at blindsight.de
