PhD Scholarship or Postdoc in Neuroscience at ETH Zurich

Applicants are invited to apply for a PhD scholarship in computer science at ETH Zurich. This position is open until filled.

The Institute for Neuroinformaticsat ETH/UZH Zurich is collaborating with the Neurosurgery Department at USZ to investigate biomarkers of epileptogenic tissue in patients with epilepsy. We are currently looking for a new position.We aim to develop biomarkers that can quickly and reliably detect epileptogenic brain tissue in intracranial EEG (iEEG) recordings of epilepsy patients. In particular, High-Frequency Oscillations (HFO) have been recently established as promising biomarkers to guide epilepsy surgery.

You will be responsible for the computational and theoretical aspects of the project, which aims to find the optimal algorithms for identifying the biomarkers. While a large body of data is already available, you will also participate in recordings of human iEEG and single neuron firing. You will spend time both at the Institute of Neuroinformatics and at the Neurosurgery Department of the University Hospital Zurich.

We offer advanced, interdisciplinary PhD training and participation in cutting-edge clinical neuroscience and neuroinformatics research projects in a lively and interactive educational atmosphere. The highly competitive salary follows Swiss National Science Foundation guidelines. The successful candidate will participate in the ZNZ doctoral program for additional theoretical/practical training and will receive a PhD from the Faculty of Science at the University of Zurich.

You have a master degree in a Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics or related fields; knowledge in programming, time series analysis and machine learning; good written and spoken English; strong team-working abilities and excellent communication skills. Basic knowledge in neuroscience is beneficial. To speak with the surgery team some German would be a plus.
