  • JOB DESCRIPTION 

Context: The Galvani project is funded by a Synergy ERC grant and comprises three teams in University of Rennes (PI F Wendling), Neuroelectrics, Barcelona (head Giulio Ruffini) and Aix-Marseille University (PI F Bartolomei). Its goal is to develop and test methods for non-invasively stimulating the brain with electrical currents (transcranial direct current stimulation, tDCS) in order to decrease pathological activity in patients with epilepsy. The specificity of the approach used in Galvani is to use a high spatial coverage of stimulating electrodes in order to restrict the stimulation to specific parts of the brain. In this context, the goal of this postdoctoral position is to test on a large database of patients signal-processing based measures for quantifying epileptogenicity, that are obtained during the interictal state (i.e. between seizures), first non-invasively (intracerebral EEG) and then non-invasively (magnetoencephalography and EEG) . This will help in turn for the targeting of tDCS towards the epileptogenic cortices which activity needs to be reduced. The candidate will be hosted within the Dynamap team (https://ins-amu.fr/dynamap) at the Timone hospital.
