Working field:

The Neurotechnology Group offers a position for a research associate at a pioneering interface of research and teaching in different scientific disciplines. The group brings together staff with backgrounds in computer science, mathematics, computational neuroscience, biophysics. Our research focuses on the development of algorithms for the analysis and classification of EEG data and the modelling of neurophysical processes. Our expertise includes classical machine learning, deep learning, Riemannian geometry, realistic neural networks, forward modelling of head volume conduction, inverse methods and algorithms.

You can expect:
  • a small, highly motivated and international team working together in a personal atmosphere,
  • the opportunity, integrated into a team, to develop new research tasks in the field of neurotechnology and algorithms,
  • a good equipment,
  • teaching tasks in a team, especially in the tutorial of the lecture Algorithms and Data Structures,
  • offering your own courses (e.g. seminars and practicals),
  • Presenting your research results at international conferences and publishing in scientific journals,
  • The doctorate (PhD) under the supervision of experienced scientists,
  • Cooperation with international research groups,
  • Co-design of future research projects.


  • Successfully completed scientific university degree (Master, Diploma or equivalent) in computer science, mathematics, computational neuroscience, biophysics or a related field.
  • Sound knowledge of computer science, especially with regard to algorithms required Experience in using versioning tools, e.g. Git.
  • Sound knowledge in one or more of the following areas is an advantage: data analysis of EEG signals, Riemannian geometry, algorithms / computational geometry.
  • The willingness and ability to work interdisciplinary in an international team is expected.
  • Preference will be given to applicants with knowledge of Java and extensive programming experience in data analysis with Python.
  • Experience in scientific work and an independent working style is an advantage.
