Campus Biotech is a new hub for cognitive and neuroscience research that hosts laboratories from EPFL, UNIGE and HUG working in preclinical and clinical research, as well as in neuroengineering technology research and development. Five major neuroscience and engineering platforms containing expert staff and advanced technology support these efforts.
The Human Neuroscience Platform (HNP) of the Foundation Campus Biotech (FCBG) is seeking a full-time “Neuromodulation Facility Manager” to coordinate the Neuromodulation facility and develop methodologies such as multimodal applications of brain stimulation techniques with fMRI or EEG, modelling of neuro-stimulation effects and novel paradigms for neuromodulation. As the facility is open to all researchers (and more specifically those of the Campus Biotech) the thematic topics the whole range of systems neuroscience.
Description du poste
The appointee will run the Neuromodulation facility of the Human Neuroscience Platform at Campus Biotech. He/she will work in tight collaboration with the MRI and EEG facilities of the HNP. One key project will be the development of concurrent application of TMS/TES and fMRI and the computational analyses of effects of neuromodulation. The appointee will benefit from a rich research environment in systems neuroscience with excellent neuroscience, neuro-engineering and computational expertise within the Campus Biotech.
