Post-doctoral and PhD openings at The Department of Applied Neurocognitive Psychology at Oldenburg University, Germany


The Department of Applied Neurocognitive Psychology at Oldenburg University, Germany, offers a Post-doctoral position (E13/TVL, 3 years plus) and a PhD position (0.5*E13/TVL, initially 2 years)

The lab focuses on the fields of neural coding of complex movements and neural coding of speech in the human brain with the aim of developing brain-machine-interfaces.

To extend our interdisciplinary team we seek for highly motivated candidates with strong quantitative and experimental skills. The post-doctoral position requires a PhD or comparable degree and the PhD position requires a masters  or comparable degree. The post-doctoral position is initially limited to three years after with an option for an extension to obtain habilitation (post-doctoral degree, similar to a lecturer qualification). Successful candidates will perform cutting edge research in one of the lab's foci and should have a background in one or more of the following fields: non-invasive or invasive human neurophysiology of the motor or auditory system, statistical learning, brain-machine-interfacing. The positions offer an excellent interdisciplinary working environment with opportunities for international exchange. The lab is involved in the EU-project BRACOG (brain controlled grasping) and we have a close collaboration with UC Berkeley, USA. The University of Oldenburg was recently awarded a Cluster of Excellence in hearing research. The Dept. of Psychology will offer an attractive scientific environment with access to research dedicated state-of-the-art approaches to human neurophysiological techniques (fMRI, NIRS, EEG, ECoG, and MEG).
