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
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.
