Do you wish to push the frontiers of transcranial brain stimulation and advance stimulation-based brain circuit therapeutics?

4-year postdoctoral research position in brain imaging informed transcranial stimulation at DRCMR

We are currently scaling up our efforts to develop novel circuit-based precision brain stimulation approaches of the human brain.
Our long-term goal is to enhance the efficacy of transcranial stimulation as a treatment of neurological and psychiatric diseases.

We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher who
● is experienced in transcranial brain stimulation,
● enjoys working at the intersection of engineering, neurophysiology, brain mapping, and clinical neuroscience
● is eager to advance state-dependent precision stimulation to modulate brain networks and improve brain network dysfunction.

You will become part of a transdisciplinary team focusing on developing precision brain stimulation therapy by combining transcranial magnetic stimulation with neuroimaging. You will work alongside dedicated researchers at our recently established interventional brain stimulation research facility comprising three state-of-the-art brain stimulation laboratories fully equipped with robotic transcranial brain stimulation, neuronavigation, and EEG.

What we do: We are conducting state-of-the-art neuroimaging-informed brain stimulation therapy in Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, and Major Depressive Disorder. We are a world leading institution in both informing and reading out brain stimulation effects with EEG and fMRI.

Your role: You will spearhead our efforts to develop precision brain stimulation protocols using MRI and EEG read-outs to inform transcranial magnetic stimulation, leveraging newly developed transcranial stimulation technology. You will design and conduct EEG-informed precision stimulation experiments, acquiring and analyzing data, and writing the data up for publication and dissemination.

Essential skills & experience:
• You have extensive experience with transcranial brain stimulation (preferentially transcranial magnetic stimulation)
• You have experience in conducting neurophysiology (EEG) or neuroimaging (MRI) experiments in humans.
• You have strong signal processing and analysis skills in the field of electrophysiology or brain mapping
• You hold a PhD degree in neuroscience, biomedical/electrical engineering, clinical medicine, or related field
• Prior refereed journal publications
• Strong written and interpersonal communication skills

Advantageous skills & experience:
• Prior experience with EEG or MRI applications in patients with brain disorders
• Prior experience with teaching and supervision of students and technicians

Working at DRCMR. You will become a member of the Brain Circuit Modulation & Therapy group, headed by Hartwig Siebner at the DRCMR (www.drcmr.dk) based at Copenhagen University Hospital Hvidovre. You will have the opportunity to collaborate with engineers, neurologists, psychologists, and interact with other groups at DRCMR.

DRCMR is a leading research center for biomedical MRI in Europe. Approximately 75 researchers from a diverse range of disciplines are currently pursuing basic and clinically applied research. The DRCMR is embedded in the Dept. for Radiology and Nuclear Medicine at the Copenhagen University Hospital Hvidovre, Copenhagen, Denmark. DRCMR has a state-of-the-art MR-research infrastructure enabling translational research, which includes a pre-clinical 7T MR scanner, six whole-body MR scanners (one 7T, four 3T and a 1.5T scanner) and a High-Performance Computer cluster. The DRCMR has pre-clinical labs, a neuropsychology laboratory, an EEG laboratory, and five laboratories for precision brain circuit stimulation. It is situated ~25mins cycle ride from central Copenhagen, a city consistently ranked one of the highest in the world for quality of life [link].

Application deadline is the 1st of June 2024.

Starting date is expected to be on the 1st of August 2024, or as soon as possible thereafter.

Salary and terms of Employment. You will be employed for a period of 48 months at the DRCMR. 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 a strength and encourage all candidates regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, disabilities, or religion to apply.

Application details: Applications should include a cover letter, CV, list of publications & research outputs, together with the names of three references.

Applications must be submitted on-line through the RegionH job portal
