Dear colleagues,

please forward the ad below to anyone who could be interested and post 
to your departmental lists.
Thanks and sorry for possible multiple postings.

I will be on Biomag2016 in Seoul from Oct.1-6 and would be happy to 
discuss with possible candidates.

Best regards
      Carsten Wolters


    Neuroscientist(s) with focus on simulation of high-definition
    transcranial electric stimulation (hd-tES)
    Ref. 11890

The*Institute for Biomagnetism and Biosignalanalysis* at the medical 
faculty of the University of Münster, Germany, invites applications for a

    PostDoctoral Researcher and/or for Doctoral Students

*Salary according to TV-L E13 **(100% or 50 %)**
**Full-Time with 38,5 (hours/week) or Part-Time with 19,25 (hours/week)**

for three year positions to work on the development and evaluation of 
new (i.e., new inverse electrode optimization and new forward finite 
element method algorithms)
simulation approaches for hd-tES using realistic head volume conductor 
models within the DFG-funded priority program SPP1665/2 (second funding 
period: from 2016 to 2019)
“Resolving and manipulating neuronal networks in the mammalian brain - 
from correlative to causal analysis”
in project
“Individualized closed-loop transcranial alternating current stimulation”.
More informations can be found on http://www.spp1665.de/.

The successful applicant holds a PhD degree and/or 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 (Matlab, C++, or equivalent) and experience 
with the Linux operating system is expected,
because large software toolboxes are used and further developed. The 
working language at the institute is English.
Experience with brain stimulation and with the measurement and analysis 
of brain signals is advantageous, but not essential.
The applicant’s merits are assessed on the basis of the quality of PhD 
and/or Master’s level studies and thesis,
previous experience with numerical mathematics, inverse problems and 
optimization approaches,
software development, motivation and research interests.

The location for this research will mainly be the workgroups
“SIM-NEURO: Simulation, Imaging and Modeling of NEUROnal networks in the 
human brain”
of PD Dr. Wolters at the Institute for Biomagnetism and 
Biosignalanalysis (IBB),
of Prof. Dr. Martin Burger at the Institute for Computational and 
Applied Mathematics and
“Applications of Partial Differential Equations”
of JProf. Dr. Christian Engwer, all at the University of Münster in 
Expected close collaborations and visits are to the partnering 
institutes, namely the
University of Oldenburg (Prof. Dr. Christoph Herrmann) and the
University of Hamburg (Dr. Till Schneider).

The application should include a statement of research interests and 
reasons for applying to the project,
a curriculum vitae (max. 5 pages) composed according to good scientific 
practice, a certificate of PhD and/or 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 until 
*Oct.31*, *2016*, please send the above documents as pdfs to
*PD Dr. Carsten Wolters, **Institute for Biomagnetism and 
Biosignalanalysis, University of Münster, Malmedyweg 15,
48149 Münster, Germany*, or by Email to 

For additional information please contact *PD Dr. Carsten Wolters* 
(Email: *carsten.wolters(at)­uni-muenster(dot)­de* 
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.
