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.
