The candidate should have extensive experience in with EEG signal analysis (preferably involving methods development and application) and strong programming skills, e.g. in MATLAB and/or Python. Excellent scientific writing skills in English are required and some level of IT and engineering know-how will be considered a plus. Finally, flexibility with regard to working hours is expected in view of the type of research.
