The European Medical School is a cooperation project between the Universities of Oldenburg and Groningen and four local hospitals.

The newly founded Neuroimaging Unit at the University of Oldenburg, Germany, offers as soon as possible a position for a

MEG-Physicist/Engineer (m/f/d)
(E13 TV-L / full time)

The successful candidate will be responsible for the operation and administration of the MEG-system, including infrastructure, data management, and user consultancy. We expect the holder of the position to pursue projects for the development and improvement of measurement and analysis techniques.

We seek for a highly motivated candidate with an academic university degree (Master or equivalent) and a PhD (or equivalent) in physics, engineering, or neuroscience, with documented research experience in magnetoencephalography or related fields. In addition, fluency in English and strong programming skills are necessary. German is desirable and experience in the design of neurocognitive experiments is a plus.

The Neuroimaging Unit hosts a state of the art magnetoencephalograph (Elekta Triux) and a magnetic resonance tomograph (Siemens Prisma 3T) and is embedded in an excellent interdisciplinary scientific environment (e.g., Cluster of Excellence "Hearing 4 All", DFG core facility "Data infrastructure for open science") with a strong research focus on neurosensory, neurocognitive, and medical research.

The University of Oldenburg is rapidly growing and offers a vibrant scientific environment with strong foci on cognitive and sensory neuroscience and a new medical school. Oldenburg is an attractive city in Germany's northwest with excellent quality of life. It is close to Bremen, Hamburg, Groningen, and approx. 1 h from the North Sea.

The University of Oldenburg is dedicated to increasing the percentage of women in science. Therefore, female candidates are particularly encouraged to apply and will be given preference in cases of equal qualification. Applicants with disabilities will be given preference in case of equal qualification. The position is suitable for part-time work.
