Discover the secrets of the brain by soldering and coding!

The University of Helsinki is an international scientific community of 40,000 students and researchers. It is one of the leading multidisciplinary research universities and ranks among the top 100 international universities in the world.

Neuroscience Center (…) in the Helsinki Institute of Life Science (HILIFE) is an independent research organization in which research spans from molecular to systems neuroscience.

We are looking for a

for a fixed-term period of 1.5.2019 - 31.12.2020 (or as agreed) to conduct research and develop and sustain the research environment.

At the Neuroscience Center, a new laboratory is launched in order to conduct research on the electro-physiological activity of the brain during various types of information processing. The idea is to use similar methods to discover the basic phenomena of both human and animal brain function in order to improve generalizability of research data. We are specifically interested in the neural foundations of different neuro-psychiatric disorders (e.g. depression, schizophrenia) and neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. epilepsy and Alzheimer's disease).

We are now looking for an enthusiastic and independent person to join our team. Your tasks would include the technical implementations of experimental designs in the laboratory, data acquisition and analysis, and the maintenance and updating of software. In this task, you will be able to apply and develop your skills very broadly. We encourage you to pursue a PhD.

We expect the potential candidate to have understanding of electrical engineering and programming skills (e.g. Python, Arduino, Matlab, Labview). A Master's degree in a suitable field is considered an asset. The most important requirements, however, are perseverance, problem-solving skills, and enthusiasm to learn new things. Your tasks would be versatile, often requiring fast actions and an open mind.

The salary will be based on the salary system of Finnish universities (YPJ) and is dependent on the appointee's qualifications and experience. A six-month trial period will be applied. The potential candidate can also be a student, and the work can be carried out on a part-time basis, in which cases employment conditions are negotiated separately. The Neuroscience Center is situated on both Meilahti and Viikki campuses.

Interested? I am happy to answer any questions you may have: Academy of Finland Researcher Miriam Nokia
