Research Assistant/PhD – Computational Models Of Sleep Oscillations During Non-REM Sleep

Research Assistant/PhD – Co

The successful candidate will work the computational modelling of sleep rhythms in the context of memory consolidation during non-REM sleep and on the effect of perturbations by transcranial electrical stimulation (cf. Aspart et al. 2018, PLoS Comput Biol 14, e1006124.; Cakan & Obermayer 2020, PLoS Comput Biol 16, e1007822; Cakan et al., 2021, arXiv:2011.14731v2). She/he is expected to collaborate with the theoretical and experimental/clinical research groups of the DFG-funded CRCs 910 (control of self-organizing nonlinear systems, and 1315 (mechanisms and disturbances in memory consolidation, Teaching obligations include the supervision of tutorials for courses of the research group in the machine learning field (Master level).
