Do you want to contribute to top quality medical research?

At the Perceptual Neuroscience group, you will have the opportunity to work with successful researchers in a scientific field bridging neuroscience and psychology while attempting to understand how the human brain process smells. We are looking for a research specialist who can analyze complex data from a range of imaging methods and who likes to implement new methods. What we can offer is a large, active, and international research environment where you have the opportunity to conduct research at the highest international level.

Your mission

As a research specialist in the research group, you will analyze imaging data acquired either using either (f)MRI methods or EEG (source/time-frequency analyses) using both standard analyses methods as well as be expected to implement analyses pipelines for novel methods. You will analyze data for projects assigned to you as well as expected to provide assistance to other group members. You will work both independently on some projects but also as a group on larger projects in collaborations with international research groups as well as data scientists at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH).

Your profile

We are looking for an individual that has a PhD degree in an area of relevance to the position as well preferable with relevant postdoc experience. You need to have a solid understanding of both signal analysis and inference statistics. The successful applicant will probably have prior experience with analyzing complex data, preferably acquired via neuroimaging methods (EEG/(f)MRI). Moreover, you will have one or several of the following desired qualifications: solid experience with programing related to signal or image processing; experience with both advance morphological and functional (f)MRI data; experience with multiple imaging analyses tools and software; experience with analyses of eye tracking data; experience with EEG signal analyses; experience with machine learning/AI analyses. We expect you to be able to work in an international research group where English is the working language and where it is OK to respectfully question results. The work involves close collaboration with others and demand flexibility and excellent communication skills.
