The*Medical Faculty in collaboration with the Mathematics Department of 
the University of Münster, *Germany, offers two positions for a

    PhD Student (gn*)
    Ref.: 05970

      Part-Time (50%)
      (German salary grade: E 13 TV-L, conditional to previous
      experience and qualifications)

*gn=gender neutral

initially limited to 3 years, but extendable to a fourth year, to work 
within the ERA Permed funded project

”Personalised diagnosis and treatment for refractory focal paediatric 
and adult epilepsy” (funding period from 07/2021 to 06/2024),

see page 13 in the ERA Permed newsletter


The applicants will contribute to the *development, evaluation and 
application of new EEG and MEG neuroimaging and mc-tDCS simulation 
approaches based on realistic head volume conductor models using modern 
hierarchical Bayesian inversion and finite element forward methods as 
well as sensitivity analysis. *The new methods will be applied in close 
collaboration with our clinical colleagues for improving presurgical 
epilepsy diagnosis and therapy.

The two successful applicants hold 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++, Python 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 targeted and optimized 
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 Master’s level studies and thesis, 
previous experience with neuroimaging, numerical mathematics, 
optimization, inverse problems, software development, motivation and 
research interests as well as communication skills.

The location for this research will be the workgroup of Prof. Dr. 
Carsten Wolters at the Institute for Biomagnetism and Biosignalanalysis 
The work will be in close cooperation with Prof. Dr. Christian Engwer, 
Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics, and the epilepsy 
center Münster-Osnabrück (Dr. Gabriel Möddel, PD Dr. Christoph 
Kellinghaus, PD Dr. Stjepana Kovac, PD Dr. Maryam Khaleghi Ghadiri), all 
at the University of Münster in Germany. Expected close collaborations 
and visits are to the PerEpi partnering labs and further PerEpi regional 

The application should include a statement of research interests and 
reasons for applying to the project, a curriculum vitae (max. 3 pages) 
composed according to good scientific practice, a certificate of the 
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.

*Please send your* application including a short summary of your 
research background (max. 1 page), CV and publication list with 
reference number via email in one pdf-file until *02.06.2021* to 

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.

The *University Hospital of Münster* is one of the leading hospitals in 
Germany. Such a position cannot be achieved by size and medical 
successes alone. The individual commitment counts above all. We need 
your commitment so that even with little things we can achieve great 
things for our patients. There are many possibilities open for you so 
that you may develop with them.
