We are seeking a full-time or part time research assistant to support and manage research projects at the Department of Neurology. We study how the brain works and how it recovers from damage. Clinical and neuropsychological behavioural tests (eg: language, spatial processing, praxis, spatial perception, memory) are correlated with brain anatomy and function (eg: fMRI, rsfMRI, DTI, sMRT, PET, TMS) in group studies of patients (mainly stroke, Parkinson’s disease and migraine). In a large scale project carefully selected stroke patients (first ever stroke, single ischemic lesion) are prospectively tested during acute stage and follow-up (currently > 800 enrolled). The group is part of Freiburg Brain Imaging (FBI), an interfaculty assembly of departments interested in scientific brain imaging, strong links exist with the Bernstein Centre of computational neuroscience, the Herman Paul Centre of linguistics and the faculties of biology, psychology, sport and sport sciences and informatics.

Within our large scale project:
- screening, recruitment and caring for study patients during the visit
- conducting and evaluating language tests/or general behavioural tests
- maintenance and further development of databases, static analysis, co-supervision of doctoral students, research assistants and interns support in managing the project
- Contributions to the experimental design of new studies and opportunity to work on your own scientific projects if you are qualified to do so

Required qualification:
- BA or Master in Psychology, Biology, Linguistics, cognitive Science, Neuroscience, or speech therapist with adequate abilities

Preferred qualifications:
- Experience or interest in the diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic neurological patients
- Knowledge of imaging and neuroanatomy
- Excellent computer and statistical skills (e.g. MS Office, SPSS)
- must be able and willing to acquire a command of German to enable interaction with our patients

We offer you:
- working in a committed, interdisciplinary team with many years of internationally renowned expertise in neuroscience, neuroanatomy as well as clinical care of patients
- a varied and responsible field of work with a high degree of independence
- opportunity for further scientific qualification
- training in advanced imaging techniques or neuropsychological testing

The position is available on a full/part-time basis for an initial period of 3 years. After a positive evaluation, tenure is available.
