Postdoctoral Researcher in Neuroimaging

Department of Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering

Teaching and research positions

Aalto University is a community of bold thinkers where science and art meet technology and business. We are committed to identifying and solving grand societal challenges and building an innovative future. Aalto University has six schools with nearly 11 000 students and nearly 400 professors. Our campuses are located in Espoo and Helsinki, Finland.


We are looking for an exceptional, multitalented postdoctoral researcher


for the ”High-resolution Magnetoencephalography” project


funded by a grant from European Research Council to prof. Lauri Parkkonen. This position is open at the Department of Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering, Aalto University School of Science, Finland. The aim of the project is to leverage the benefits of measuring neuromagnetic signals right on the scalp with highly sensitive optically-pumped magnetometers (OPM), establishing a new way of measuring the human brain in action! The project encompasses the entire chain from sensor technology to data analysis and to neuroscientific experimentation. Ideally, the postdoctoral researcher would be able to contribute to all of these stages of the research although the focus should be on OPM physics and technology and on system integration.


A suitable candidate should be highly motivated and research-oriented, and proficiency in English is mandatory. Theoretical knowledge and experimental skills for laboratory work related to quantum optics, electromagnetic fields, electronics, and analysis of multidimensional data are highly relevant. Basic neuroscience knowledge, MEG/EEG expertise, and Python and/or Matlab programming skills would be additional merits.


In addition to research work, the postdoctoral researcher is expected to participate to the supervision of students and teaching related to his/her expertise and research topics. The employment contract is typically for 1–2 years, with an option for renewal. The salary level for a postdoctoral researcher is competitive, and depends on experience and qualifications. The contract includes occupational health services.


How to apply
Please apply via electronic recruitment system Saima. Please attach to your application your CV, list of publications, motivation letter and contact details of referees. The position is open until a suitable person is found.
