Doctoral Studentships @ Bionics Institute, Melbourne & Sydney, Australia
I’m looking for two new PhD students at the moment, both using fNIRS brain imaging technology! If you know any star undergrads in Australia or who want to move to Australia and work in hearing science, let me know!
One project will be based at the Bionics Institute in Melbourne, and will use fNIRS to examine ‘listening effort’ in people who use cochlear implants and bone-anchored hearing aids. This project is funded by Oticon Medical, and is based in Melbourne but will involve a study period at Oticon in Lille, France.
The other project is based in Sydney, under the main supervision of David McAlpine at the Australian Hearing Hub. A study period will be spent with me in Melbourne too. This project also uses fNIRS, but also EEG and MEG to examine how the auditory system uses our two ears together to create a ‘sense of space.’
Both projects are cutting edge science, fully-funded and include a stipend. Please get in touch with me (hinnes-brown@bionicsinstitute.org) for more information!


Doctoral Studentship @ ICFO, Barcelona, Spain
We are currently offering 8 PhD positions available within the ICFOstepstone fellowship program (H2020 MCSA-COFUND action at ICFO), to start doctoral studies in March-February 2018. Detailed information about the PhD-program is
available at http://phd.icfo.eu . Some of these positions can be in our group. Please be aware the Marie Curie COFUND positions are highly competitive and come with extraordinary benefits for the students. Please contact Turgut Durduran if you have any questions about the type of projects in our group.
Deadline: September 17th 2017


Doctoral Studentship @ Bionics Institute, Melbourne, Australia
We have a new PhD studentship open at the Bionics Institute in Melbourne! It’s funded by Oticon and is a collaboration with Oticon Medical in Lille, France, and Eriksholm in Denmark.
It’s about using fNIRS to measure listening effort in Cochlear Implant users, and people with bone-anchored hearing aids.
We are looking for that special someone who is happy to get stuck into brain imaging data analysis, and who also loves working with people! I know that person exists out there somewhere, get in touch with me if you know anyone who might fit the bill, and I will forward some more details.
Please email an expression of interest including details of relevant experience, along with your CV and academic transcripts to Professor Colette McKay (cmckay@bionicsinstitute.org), or email Professor McKay if you would like more information before applying.
Deadline: August 31st 2017.

Postdoctoral Research Associate @ UPenn, USA
We have an opening for a post doc or possibly for someone post postdoc in need of a research associate position.
The position will deal with assimilating and interpreting the massive (seemingly) amount of data we are getting from our patients with the UPenn DCS system (with ICG injection) compared to data obtained from invasive monitors in our neurocritical care patients. Anyone who is ready to move on and perhaps experience the USA please contact me. The post doc position is listed on the upenn post doc page: https://www.med.upenn.edu/apps/my/index.php…
The research associate position for someone who has already done a post doc is at: http://www.med.upenn.edu/a…/faculty_ad/index.php/g319/d4661…
If anyone knows of any excellent grad students or post docs who may want to apply for one of these positions, please refer them to me.

Postdoctoral Position @ Concordia, Montreal, Canada – PostdocProposal_2016

Please see below the opportunity for a postdoctoral position in EEG-NIRS in epilepsy available in my lab.

The candidate will join a multidisciplinary team composed of neurologists and methodologists within the Multimodal Functional Imaging Laboratory, directed by Pr. Christophe Grova. The laboratory is actually based on two sites: (i) Physics Dpt at Concordia University and PERFORM center, (ii) Biomedical Engineering Dpt and epilepsy group of the Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University. Both environments offer unique platforms with access to several modalities (simultaneous high-density EEG/fMRI, MEG, simultaneous EEG/NIRS, TMS). The main expertise of the team is the development and the validation of source localization methods dedicated for EEG, MEG and NIRS as well as multimodal characterization of resting state brain activity.

Project: Multimodal investigation of epileptic activity using simultaneous EEG/MEG and EEG/NIRS acquisitions.

While methodological developments in the lab will consist in 3D reconstruction of the generators of EEG, MEG and NIRS signals and assessing multimodal concordances between bioelectrical neuronal signals and hemodynamic processes, the purpose of this Postdoctoral project will be to assess the integrity of neurovascular coupling processes at the time of epileptic discharges, using a unique multimodal environment involving EEG/MEG (Pellegrino et al HBM 2016), EEG/NIRS (Pellegrino et al Frontiers in Neurosc. 2016) and also EEG/fMRI recordings (Heers et al HBM 2014). Close collaborations with the epilepsy group of the Montreal Neurological Institute, involving notably Dr E. Kobayashi MD-PhD, Dr F. Dubeau MD-PhD and Dr. J. Gotman PhD, will provide access to patient populations and additional clinical expertise for this project.

Requirements: The candidate should be an MD (neurologist) with previous training in epileptology and neurophysiology (EEG). Expertise in analyzing MEG or NIRS signals and/or computational skills including neuroimaging softwares are appreciated additional qualification. The candidate should be fluent in English (and if possible French) due to the patient population studied.
