A new research group on neural oscillations, led by Dr. Sarang Dalal at the University of Konstanz (Germany), is searching for postdoctoral fellows and/or PhD students for a project involving MEG and intracranial EEG. This project will investigate the role of hippocampus oscillations in navigation- and memory-related networks using magnetoencephalography (MEG) and intracranial electroencephalography (iEEG), both separately and simultaneously. Group members will be trained in MEG/iEEG data acquisition and analysis, including quantification of oscillatory power/coupling and source localization. The project will involve substantial collaboration with the University Hospital Erlangen (Dr. Stefan Rampp & Prof. Hajo Hamer).
The working language of the laboratory and most department meetings is English.
The ideal applicant will have a background in cognitive neuroscience or neural signal processing. PhD positions are funded for 3 years (usual PhD duration in Germany), and postdoc positions for 2 years with a possibility for extension to 3 years. The starting date can be between December 2012 and April 2013.
Interested applicants may send a CV and a brief letter of interest by e-mail to sarang.dalal -at- uni-konstanz.de, preferably by November 1, 2012. Dr. Dalal will be present at the Society for Neuroscience meeting in New Orleans and would be happy to meet with anybody interested to apply.
