A new position on experimental/computational neuroscience has just been announced on FENS:
Topic: “Spatio-temporal dynamics of ongoing neuronal oscillations in basal ganglia/ thalamus and their implications for movement disorders”
A full-time postdoctoral position is available in the Neurophysics Group at the Department of Neurology and Clinical Neurophysiology of Charité - University Medicine Berlin, Campus Benjamin Franklin. The aim of the project is to investigate complex spatio-temporal dynamics in LFP/EEG oscillations recorded in patients with electrodes implanted for Deep Brain Stimulation. The project will adapt concepts from statistical physics, fractal measures (e.g., long-range temporal correlations), synchronization, and entropy features of LFP/EEG in order to address cortico-subcortical mechanisms of motor and cognitive behavior. The position is integrated into a large clinical project focusing on mechanisms of therapeutic effects of Deep Brain Stimulation. The position is open for three years, starting November/December 2010.
A candidate should hold a PhD, e.g., in neuroscience, psychology, computer science, biomedical engineering, physics, applied mathematics, or/and MD with experiences in clinical neurophysiology. Experience with multi-channel EEG/MEG/LFP recordings and data analysis (e.g. with Matlab/Python) is an advantage.
Applications, including CV and contact information for 2 referees, should be sent to Dr. Vadim Nikulin; vadim.nikulin at charite.de
