Analysis of EEG recordings from epilepsy patients.

The nonlinear time series analysis group of the Department of Information and Communication Technologies of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain, will has an open PhD position. The PhD project will be dedicated to the study of electroencephalographic recordings from epilepsy patients. For details on this line of research please see:

The student will receive a fellowship during three years, which can be extended to a fourth year. The contract is renewed yearly provided that sufficient progress has been made. The student will have to teach some seminars in undergraduate courses at our department.

The student should have a background in physics, mathematics, or related fields. The analysis of the data is numerical and therefore strong programming skills are required. The thesis involves no laboratory or experimental work. The student will not be involved in the measurement of EEG recordings. Previous experience in signal analysis in application to neuronal signals is a plus. The candidate will work in our nonlinear time series analysis group, an international team that puts a strong emphasis on well-organized supervision of its junior members and regular research activities such as journal clubs, project meetings, etc.

For the application you need a detailed motivation letter. It is strongly recommended that this motivation letter relates to our group’s recent publications in the topic. This can be done by summarizing some aspect of this work and brainstorming on possible ideas for a project to continue this line of research. The submission should furthermore include your CV and certificates of your undergraduate studies. You will furthermore have to ask two reviewers to upload a letter of recommendation to the application system.
