The Department of Applied Neurocognitive Psychology at Oldenburg
University, Germany, offers a

Post-doctoral position (salary level E13 TVL, 3 years)

with a focus on signal processing / statistical learning for analysis of
speech coding in the human brain. 

The position is linked to the collaborative research center "The Active
Auditory System" SFB-TR 31. The research center aims to characterize and
model mechanism of auditory object formation and scene analysis by
combining psychophysical, neurophysiological, and quantitative modelling.

The post-doctoral position is situated in a project that applies
statistical learning methods to human intracranial recordings (ECoG) and
fMRI to derive and test quantitative statistical models of speech coding
in the human brain. The experiments are performed in a highly
interdisciplinary lab environment and in close collaboration with the
University of California Berkeley and Stanford University.

The quantitative nature of the research project will require highly
motivated candidates with strong quantitative and experimental skills.
Successful candidates will perform cutting edge research and should have
a background in one or more of the following fields: signal processing,
statistical learning, brain-machine-interfacing, non-invasive or
invasive human neurophysiology of the auditory system. Applicants must
have an academic university degree (Master or equivalent) and a PhD (or

Successful candidates will work in an interdisciplinary network with
opportunities for international exchange.

The post-doctoral position is initially limited to three years, with an
option for extension, and can be split.

Applications should include your CV, a list of most recent publications,
two recommendation letters, and a research statement (max. 3 pages). The
University of Oldenburg is an equal opportunity employer. To increase
the proportion of women and non-disqualifying handicapped, they will be
preferred among candidates with equal qualifications.
