As a translational group, we develop novel neuromodulation tools and work closely together with biomedical companies to gain access to innovative neurotechnology. We combine basic studies on healthy subjects with clinical studies on patient populations, and apply the knowledge gained from these studies to refine our treatment protocols.

Representative work from our group: Scherer et al. Neuroimage. 2020, Milosevic et al. Mov Disord. 2020, Naros et al. Cereb Cortex. 2020, Vukelić et al. Neuroimage. 2019, Ziegler et al. Brain Stimul. 2019, Guggenberger et al. Brain Stimul. 2018, Naros et al. Mov Disord. 2018, Khademi et al. Cereb Cortex. 2018, Kraus et al. J Neurosci. 2018

We offer

Access to novel brain stimulation paradigms to expand the understanding of the human brain and develop new therapies.
Opportunity to work with in vivo electrophysiological data from patients and healthy controls.
Support of your work with a broad range of pre-built analysis tools and assistance in designing your own approaches.
Access to state-of-the-art technologies to generate reliable results.


Master’s degree or PhD in the field of Neuroscience, Cognitive Science, Biology, Computer Science, Engineering, Data Science or related fields.
