Postdoctoral position in Speech Decoding from iEEG at the University of Granada (Spain)

Os reenviamos un mensaje sobre un contrato postdoctoral en el CIMCYC (UGR).

La Junta Directiva de la SEPEX

Dear colleagues,

Our lab at the Mind, Brain and Behavior Research Center at University of
Granada (CIMCYC-UGR) is looking for a postdoctoral researcher to work in
the research project “Clinical Applications of Neuroscience: Locating
Language Areas in Epileptic Patients and Restoring Speech in Paralyzed
People” (B.SEJ.570.UGR20), funded by our regional government in
Andalusia (Spain).

Project summary

The project has two objectives. Firstly, we aim at localizing the brain
areas involved in language processing from intracranial EEG data, with
the clinical aim of preserving these regions during the resection of
brain tissue in epileptic patients. Secondly, the project also aims to
decode speech from intracranial EEG recording using state-of-the-art
deep learning techniques.

The candidate tasks will involve setting up experiments with standard
experimental software, recruiting participants, running experiments,
data preparation and analysis.


Candidates must hold a PhD in Computer Science or
Telecommunications/Electronic Engineering and interests in Cognitive
Neuroscience or, alternatively, a PhD in Psychology/Neuroscience with
good programming skills (in Python and/or Matlab).

About the position

The candidate will be integrated in a multidisciplinary team formed by
psychologies, engineers, and medical doctors. The duration of the
contract is for 18 months, starting from March 2022. Full time salary is
in the range 26,000€ to 42,000€, depending on the candidate’s

The deadline for applications ends on 2nd February
