The research group for Applied Physics and Neurophysics of Prof. Dr. Frank Bremmer at Philipps-Universität Marburg, Germany, is currently accepting applications for a

Research Assistant (Doctoral candidate) 

in the framework of the International Research Training Group (IRTG) The Brain in Action, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).  

Salary and benefits are according to a public service position in Germany (TV-H E 13). At the Faculty of Physics, the part-time position (65% of the regular working hours) is to be staffed starting 01 September 2020 or soon thereafter over a maximum period of up to 3 years, if no former times can be considered and will offer the possibility of further scientific qualification in the frame of the assigned duties. 

The IRTG BrainAct is a joint doctoral research and training program of two German and three Canadian Universities: University of Giessen; University of Marburg; Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario; Western University, London, Ontario; and York University, Toronto. The announced position is to be filled at Philipps-Universität Marburg in the lab of Frank Bremmer. 

The IRTG is situated at the Universities of Giessen and Marburg. A significant part of the research project (obligatory: 6 to 12 months) will be performed at the partner sites in Canada. Doctoral candidates of the IRTG attend a structured doctoral program including seminar and lecture series and practical courses and are jointly supervised by German and Canadian researchers. The key goal of the IRTG is to deepen the understanding of the neural systems and processes that underlie perception and action in everyday living. Research of this position will focus on sensorimotor processing in humans and non-human primates (NHPs). We apply a variety of research methods, such as tracking of eye- and head-movements, neurophysiology, EEG or computational approaches. Further information can be found at these websites: www.irtg-brainact.de/ <http://www.irtg-brainact.de/> and https://www.uni-marburg.de/en/fb13/neurophysics <https://www.uni-marburg.de/en/fb13/neurophysics> 

In the context of the transferred tasks the possibility for independent scientific work is offered, which serves the own scientific qualification. The time limit is based on § 2 para. 1 sentence 1 WissZeitVG. 

A completed academic degree (diploma, master or equivalent) in the field of biomedical, or life and natural sciences including psychology is required. Experience in MATLAB programming is expected, experience in NHP-neurophysiology and/or machine learning is a plus. 

The willingness to develop one's own scientific qualifications is expected. Philipps-Universität Marburg supports young scientists in their career development. We support women and strongly encourage them to apply. In areas where women are under-represented, female applicants will be preferred in case of equal qualifications. Applicants with children are welcome – Philipps-University is certified as a family-friendly university. Sharing a full-time position (§ 8 Abs. 2 S. 1 HGlG) as well as a reduction of working time is possible. Applicants with a disability as described in SGB IX (§ 2 Abs. 2, 3) will be preferred in case of equal qualifications. Application and interview costs can not be refunded. 
Please send your application (including a statement of purpose, no longer than three pages), curriculum vitae, two recent letters of reference, copies of earned degrees including copy of higher education entrance qualification with the registration number fb13-0021-wmz-2020 by August 7th, 2020, as a single pdf-document to thomas at staff.uni-marburg.de.
