The Neuroinformatics Research Group (Prof. Dr. Gordon Pipa) of the Institute
of Cognitive Science invites applications for 3 Research Assistants (PhD
student level), (Salary level E 13 TV-L 50%) to be filled as soon as
possible for a period of three years. The position allows for further
scientific qualification. 
We invite applicants that are interested in research in Neuroinformatics,
with an emphasis on dynamical systems, machine learning, virtual reality,
computational linguistics and electrophysiology. Candidates will participate
in a highly international PhD program on cognitive science (with >40
currently enrolled students) and interdisciplinary research projects that
can involve cooperation with other disciplines of our institute. Candidates
should be highly motivated to understand the structure of neuronal coding
and neuronal representations. To study this, we involve different research
strategies that range from the development of highly sophisticated data
analysis strategies, to modelling of neuronal processes on the level of
recurrent networks. 
The qualification profile of the candidates can range from a purely
mathematical neuroscientist, a dynamical systems researcher to
interdisciplinary candidates that share interest in performing experiments
with the virtual reality combined with EEG and sophisticated machine
learning-based analysis of recorded activity (at
http://ikw.uni-osnabrueck.de/en/ni/publications you find an overview of
recent research topics). 
Description of Responsibilities: The successful candidate will be involved
in several research projects that range from BSc to MSc projects. The
position also involves teaching Cognitive Science courses at BSc and MSc
level (2 hours/week). 
Required Qualifications:  Candidates are expected to have an excellent
academic degree (Master/diploma). Applicants should have an excellent
knowledge in the field of machine learning, i.e. generalized linear and
state space models, kernel methods, reservoir computing and deep learning.
Experience or a strong interest in the fields of complex systems,
computational neurosciences, dynamical systems theory and the concepts to
study these, i.e. bifurcation and stability analysis, and delay- coupled
differential equations, measurements of complexity, are encouraged.
Experience or a strong interest in experimental methods such as EEG, and
virtual reality are highly welcome. In addition, a strong interest or
experience in the estimation of causal interactions from time series is
As a certified family-friendly institution, Osnabrück University is
committed to furthering the compatibility between work/studies and family
life. As an employer, Osnabrück University is particularly concerned with
creating equal opportunities for women and men. Women with relevant
qualifications are therefore strongly encouraged to apply for the position.
Preference will be given to women with equal qualifications. Furthermore,
qualified applicants with disabilities will be favored.  
Applications with the usual documentation, including two letters of
recommendation, should be submitted by e-mail in a single PDF file to the
Director of the Institute of Cognitive Science
(office at ikw.uni-osnabrueck.de) no later than 08.09.2014. An electronic copy
should be sent to Prof. Dr. Gordon Pipa (gpipa at uni-osnabrueck.de) who can
also be contacted for further information.
