We are happy to announce a job opening:
1 PhD Student / Research Fellow
(Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter, 50%)
for the AG Translational Neuroimaging, Neurological Clinic and Hertie
Institute for Clinical Brain Research for a DFG-funded 3-years project.
The successful applicant will work primarily on functional connectivity in
MEG and hd-EEG in patients with genetic epilepsy. This involves
graph-theoretical concepts and machine learning approaches. The aim of this
project is to link the genetic causes of epilepsy with imaging patterns and
improve our understanding of the pathophysiology and genotype-phenotype
relations in general.

Applicants need a university degree (MA or equivalent) in physics,
mathematics, biology, biomedical engineering, medicine or other related
disciplines. Programming skills (Matlab) are essential as is previous
knowledge of MEG or EEG and common imaging toolboxes (e.g. Fieldtrip,
Brainstorm, SPM, FSL). Publications on network analysis/graph theory are
beneficial for a successful application, as is previous experience with
epilepsy. Since the study involves interaction with patients, German
language skills are advantageous. The applicant has to be fluent in English,
both written and oral.
The focus of our group is the utilization of imaging and post-processing
methods to better understand the neurobiology of focal and generalized
epilepsies, allow individualized diagnostics and translate methodological
advances into clinical applications. The applicant will have access to a
unique setting including high-density MR-compatible 256-channel EEG, 3T- and
9.4T-MRI scanners, human and fetal MEG and hybrid human PET-MR facilities.
The medical university clinics runs a comprehensive epilepsy surgery program
including invasive EEG recordings. The applicant can be enrolled into the
neuroscience PhD program including various teaching courses and further
The salary is according to German federal scale (TV-L, E13 50%). The initial
contract is for one year. After successful interim evaluation (PhD advisory
board), a prolongation for further two years is available. The university is
especially encouraging the application of women. Disabled applicant are
preferred in case of equal qualification. The intended start date is
November 2016 with some flexibility.
