The Emmy Noether Research Group "Neurophysiology of Everyday Life", Department of Psychology, School of Medicine and Health Sciences, University of Oldenburg, is seeking to fill a position as
Doctoral researcher (m/f/d)
(wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin, wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter)
(E 13 TV-L 65% for 3 years, starting as soon as possible).
The position is part of the project: Transparent EEG for Monitoring Noise Perception in Everyday life (TEMPEL). We seek to better understand why some people are severely distracted by environmental noise while others are not. To address this question we use mobile ear-centered electroencephalography (EEG) and study auditory perception in every-day situations. Key questions for this position are: How can we analyze severely artifact-contaminated EEG data? How can we avoid artifacts? How can we reduce artifacts during post-processing? Your task will be to acquire long term EEG in everyday situations and to develop methods to predict, prevent and reduce artifacts.
We are seeking a resourceful and inquisitive person with an academic university degree (master or equivalent) in biomedical engineering, computer science, neuroscience, psychology or a related discipline. Substantial experience in biomedical signal processing is required (e.g. during your master thesis or another research project). Experience with EEG or related recording techniques is a plus. Since you will work closely with other researchers on related topics, you should have good communication skills, be able to convey complex ideas comprehensibly, and enjoy working in an interdisciplinary team. Fluency in oral and written English is necessary.
The University of Oldenburg offers cutting-edge infrastructure for neuroscience research, and an international, friendly environment with researchers and students with diverse backgrounds. The research group is tightly integrated in the Department of Psychology, works in close collaboration with the Neuropsychology Lab and is associated with the Cluster of Excellence Hearing4all.
