EG 13 TV-L, full-time employment, 40 hours/week, limited, project position

The research is carried out within the framework of subproject S01 of the supra-regional Collaborative Research Center TRR 295, "Treatment of motor network disorders using neuromodulation," supported by Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin and the University Hospital Würzburg. The place of work is the University of Rostock. The main objective of the research is to establish a comprehensive simulation environment for patient-specific modelling of deep brain stimulation with special emphasis on the accurate modelling of the electric field in brain tissue and its effect on neuronal structures of the basal ganglia complex. The post-doctoral researcher will enhance the existing functionality of the open source software tool OSS-DBS integrated with Lead DBS, developed at the University of Rostock and the Charité, respectively. This will be done by adding algorithms for patient-specific pathway classification and reconstructing neural networks based on multimodal medical imaging.
