Subject description
Machine learning focuses on computational methods by which computer systems uses data to improve their own performance, understanding, and to make accurate predictions and has a close connection to applications.

Project description
In this project the data will be biomedical signals, acquired via EEG and fMRI. You will work under the supervision of Professor Marcus Liwicki of EISLAB and you will actively work with Dr. Debashis Das Chakladar (Excellent postdoc researcher, EISLAB on Brain function analysis using machine learning methods.

The duties of postdoctoral employment primarily comprise research. Teaching and pedagogical development work may be included in the duties, up to a maximum of 20% of the working hours. You will be conducted on various EEG/EEG-fMRI tasks with the help of machine learning or deep learning approaches and you will furthermore strongly participate in the acquisition of future projects.

To be eligible for this postdoctoral position you must have a PhD degree, or a foreign degree equivalent to a PhD in computer science, computer engineering or electrical engineering with experience in the above-mentioned areas. Desirable is some experience in international research project collaboration.

A candidate having been awarded a doctoral degree no more than three years before the application deadline should be considered first for the appointment. If there are special grounds, a doctoral degree may have been awarded at an earlier date. Special grounds comprise leave of absence due to illness, parental leave, clinical practice, commissions of trust and similar circumstances. We are looking for you who are capable of conducting state-of-the-art research as demonstrated through a record of peer reviewed publications. You need to have proficient knowledge in Biomedical signal processing methods (EEG, fMRI, etc.). We expect you to have a good knowledge in English both in speech and writing and have the capacity to work independently as well as in teams. You who have experience of working with machine learning and deep learning for brain signals will be prioritized. Most employees in the subject are currently men, therefore we welcome female applicants.
