A two-year Postdoc in data analysis and EEG processing

The Danish Research Centre for Magnetic Resonance (DRCMR) at Copenhagen University Hospital Hvidovre (Denmark) invites applications for a postdoc position in data analysis and EEG processing

Do you want to develop your EEG skills and become a leading expert within EEG data processing and analyses? Would you like to develop new methods and support researchers in their electrophysiology and EEG activities at DRCMR? Your daily tasks would include experimental and analysis methods development; data acquisition; data analysis; and EEG in multimodal approach.

About us:

The Danish Research Centre for Magnetic Resonance (DRCMR) is one of the leading research centers for biomedical MRI in Europe (www.drcmr.dk). Our mission is to triangulate MR physics, basic physiology, and clinical research. Approximately 70 researchers from a diverse range of disciplines are currently pursuing basic and clinically applied MR research with a focus on structural, functional, and metabolic MRI of the human brain and its disorders.

The DRCMR is embedded in the Center for Functional and Diagnostic Imaging and Research, a large diagnostic imaging department including all biomedical imaging modalities at Copenhagen University Hospital Hvidovre.

The position:

You will be employed as a postdoc for a two-year period at the Danish Research Centre for Magnetic Resonance where you will be part of the EEG group. You will mainly work on the NovoNordisk Foundation funded project BioQ and on the Innovation Foundation funded project Precison-BCT.

As a postdoc you will have close interaction with DRCMR-researchers from a great variety of disciplines and with collaborators as well as clinicians. We act in concert and you are never alone with your tasks.  

Your daily task will vary according to the flow of the projects but will mainly be centered around:

  • support of ongoing electrophysiology studies, related to EEG and TMS/EEG
  • development and testing of data analysis methods
  • analyzing data, from pre-processing to statistics
  • using real-time EEG recordings to extract brain starts and inform the timing of TMS
  • acquiring and analyzing other electrophysiological signals (for example electromyography, electrooculography and others)
  • engaging in teaching, knowledge dissemination, and publication of results in international, recognized scientific journals. 

Your profile:

You should be a data analysis expert with most of the following qualifications:

  • a PhD degree or corresponding qualification in engineering, neuroscience, neurophysiology, computer science or a related field.
  • background and proficiency in EEG data processing and analyses
  • data acquisition and pre-processing, and statistical analysis
  • experience with TMS/EEG integration
  • proficiency regarding EEG software and hardware
  • strong programming skills in MATLAB and/or Python.

Salary and Terms of Employment

Salary, pension and terms of employment are in accordance with the agreement between the Danish Regions (Danske Regioner) and the relevant professional organization. The salary depends on background education and seniority. Further, supplements can be negotiated. Note that candidates coming from abroad may be eligible for tax reductions. The position is open for candidates of all nationalities.

We see diversity as strength and encourage all persons regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, disabilities or religion to apply.

Applications should include a cover letter, CV and list of publications. Applications must be submitted on-line through the RegionH job portal. Click here.

Application deadline: January 6th, 2020 at 08:00 (CET)

Interviews will be arranged in the following week. If you live outside Denmark, we can arrange a first interview on Skype.
