Group-Leaders, Post Docs and PhD Students in Neuromodulation and Neurotechnology

University of Tuebingen


The Institute for Neuromodulation and Neurotechnology at the University of Tuebingen, Germany, unites neuroscientists, engineers, computer scientists and physicians following a common goal: To improve the lives of patients with neurological disorders using state-dependent stimulation and adaptive neurotechnology for neuromodulation of the nervous system.
We are looking for:

Group-Leaders, Postdocs and PhD students (f/m/d)

50-100 %, initially limited.

As a translational group, we develop novel neuromodulation tools and work closely together with biomedical companies to gain access to innovative neurotechnology. We combine basic studies on healthy subjects with clinical studies on patient populations, and apply the knowledge gained from these studies to refine our treatment protocols. Representative work from our group: Scherer et al. Neuroimage. 2020, Milosevic et al. Mov Disord. 2020, Naros et al. Cereb Cortex. 2020, Vukelić et al. Neuroimage. 2019, Ziegler et al. Brain Stimul. 2019, Guggenberger et al. Brain Stimul. 2018, Naros et al. Mov Disord. 2018, Khademi et al. Cereb Cortex. 2018, Kraus et al. J Neurosci. 2018.

We offer:

  • 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


  • Master’s degree or PhD in the field of Neuroscience, Cognitive Science, Biology, Computer Science, Engineering, Data Science or related fields
  • Solid understanding of statistical data 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
  • Experience with relevant neuromodulation and/or electrophysiological techniques, e.g., BCI/BMI, tDCS/tACS, TMS, VNS, NMES, DBS, M/EEG, LFP, MER and/or EMG

Application deadline is 30.09.2020.

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 e-mail addresses of three professional references (e.g. current or previous research advisors); Transcript of Records; TOEFL scores or other evidence of English and/or German proficiency; GRE scores (optional)
