*Neuroscientist with focus on the EEG/MEG forward problem in presurgical 
epilepsy diagnosis*

The *medical faculty of the University of Münster*, Germany, invites 
applications for a

    Doctoral Student
    Ref.: 10939

for a TVL13, 65%, three year position to work on the combined Electro- 
(EEG) and Magneto-encephalography (MEG) forward problem in presurgical 
epilepsy diagnosis using calibrated realistic finite element volume 
conductor models of the patients heads within a DFG-funded project.

The successful applicant holds a Master’s degree (or equivalent) in a 
relevant academic area such as *applied* *mathematics, computer science, 
physics, biomedical or electrical engineering or similar disciplines. 
*Good programming expertise (C++, Matlab, Fortran or equivalent) and 
experience with the Linux operating system is expected, because large 
software toolboxes (DUNE-PDELab, see http://www.dune-project.org/) are 
used and further developed. The working language at the institute is 
English. Experience with finite element method based simulation and the 
analysis of brain signals is advantageous, but not essential. The 
applicant’s merits are assessed on the basis of the quality of Master’s 
level studies and thesis, previous experience with the numerical 
solution of partial differential equations, numerical mathematics, 
inverse problems, software development, motivation and research interests.

The location for this research will mainly be the workgroups “Methods in 
bioelectromagnetism” of PD Dr. Wolters at the Institute for Biomagnetism 
and Biosignalanalysis (IBB) and “Applications of partial differential 
equations” of Prof. Dr. Christian Engwer at the Institute for 
Computational and Applied Mathematics, both at the University of Münster 
in Germany. Expected close collaborations and visits are with the 
Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Erlangen (Dr.med. Stefan 
Rampp) and with the epilepsy centers Münster-Osnabrück (Dr. Gabriel 
Möddel; PD Dr.med. Christoph Kellinghaus) and Bochum (Prof. Dr.med. Jörg 

The application should include a statement of research interests and 
reasons for applying to the project, a curriculum vitae (max. 4 pages) 
composed according to good scientific practice, a certificate of 
Master’s degree, copy of the master’s thesis and grades of Master’s 
level studies, the names and e-mail addresses of two referees and a 
proof of proficiency in English.

The position will be open until filled. To apply for the position, 
please send the above documents as pdfs until 20.04.2016  to*PD 
Dr.rer.nat. Carsten Wolters*, Institute for Biomagnetism and 
Biosignalanalysis, University of Münster, Malmedyweg 15, 48149 Münster, 
Germany, or by Email to *carsten.wolters(at)­uni-muenster(dot)­de 
For additional information please contact*PD Dr. Carsten Wolters (Email: 
Phone: +49 (0)251 83-56904).

Applications of women are specifically invited. In the case of similar 
qualifications, competence, and specific achievements, women will be 
considered on preferential terms within the framework of the legal 
possibilities. Handicapped candidates with equivalent qualifications 
will be given preference.
