analysis, digital signal processing and/or programming principles.
Programming skills in Python or MATLAB and/or experience in applying statistical tools, e.g.,
machine learning for data analysis.
Access to novel brain stimulation paradigms to expand the understanding of the human brain
and develop new therapies.
Opportunity to work with in vivo electrophysiological data from patients and healthy controls.
Support of your work with a broad range of pre-built analysis tools and assistance in designing
your own approaches.
Access to state-of-the-art technologies to generate reliable results.
A team that is united by one vision: to enhance the understanding of the human brain in order
to invent and implement new and more effective therapies.
Please include in your application within one PDF file: Cover letter outlining (i) how you meet the
requirements for the position, (ii) which techniques/methods you would like to be involved in, (iii)
relevant details of your past research projects, and (iv) an explanation of how your previous
experience lends itself to your research program. (~750 words).
Curriculum vitae (including publication record: research manuscripts, journal papers, conference
contributions etc.). Names and email addresses of three professional references (e.g., current or
previous research advisors). Transcript of Records. TOEFL scores or other evidence of English and/or
