Open positions

University Lecturer / Senior University Lecturer in Neuroscience

We are looking for a University Lecturer or Senior University Lecturer to work at the Department of Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering (NBE). With its ca. 110 faculty and staff members, NBE is strongly dedicated to research in the areas of neuroscience and neurotechnology. NBE hosts a state-of-the-art neuroimaging infrastructure, including MEG and MRI dedicated to research. The post will be filled on a fixed term or a permanent basis at university lecturer or senior university lecturer level on the Aalto University lecturer track depending on the competence and merits of the applicant.

The post holder is primarily responsible for teaching of neuroimaging to master-of-science and postgraduate students through lecturing, supervising exercises and assignments, and participating in curriculum coordination and development. Subject matter includes the operational and physiological principles of neuroimaging methods (primarily MEG and fMRI), experimental design, conducting imaging experiments in practice, applying advanced data analysis methods, and critical interpretation of the results. The lecturer will also have a key role in organizing international MEG trainings. While the emphasis of the post is on teaching, the post holder is also expected to conduct research and follow the development of the neuroimaging field.
