PhD-position with transitional postdoc year

We are currently looking for one 3 year PhD position (65% E 13 TV-Charité) with a fourth year of transitional postdoctoral time (100% E 13 TV-Charité) to work on projects related to deep brain stimulation and connectomic neuroimaging as well as noninvasive neuromodulation (multifocal tDCS). The job will be situated in the center of Berlin at the main campus of Charité – University Medicine Berlin. Charité ist Germany’s best university hospital and a joint subsidiary of Free University and Humboldt University which both received “excellence” status by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Charité is Europe’s largest hospital and the DBS center of Prof. Kühn one of the largest in Germany with a strong scientific focus.

The post will be supervised by Dr. Andreas Horn within a newly found junior group (Network Stimulation Laboratory Berlin) at the Movement Disorders and Neuromodulation section led by Prof. Andrea Kühn.

Ideally, the applicant should be experienced with neuroimaging and deep brain stimulation (prior work with the Lead-DBS toolbox is perfect). Optimally, we are looking for an applicant that will form part of the core development of Lead-DBS, thus, programming experience with Matlab (or similar, Python & R welcome!) and expertise with git/github is needed.

Informal requests are warmly welcome and should be directed to Andreas Horn. For applications, please send your CV, a short motivational/introductory letter and – if available – links to example code you have written to Andreas.

Applications from severely handicapped persons are preferred if they are equally qualified. We see ourself as a family-friendly laboratory.
