Offer Description

We are looking for a motivated postdoctoral researcher with expertise in computational models of perception and action and an interest in model and algorithm development and revalidation approaches to participate in a consortium project called ’Smart technologies for personalized home care for neurological pediatric patients (RE:HOME)’.

This project, involving partners from France, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands, is funded by Interreg North-West Europe (NWE), a European Territorial Cooperation programme contributing to a better quality of life and well-being of all NWE citizens. The aim of the RE:HOME project is to build and test a rehabilitation platform that enables home rehabilitation in a safe and controlled way through personalised feedback and monitoring of health data, rehabilitation progress and quality of life. Within this project, you will be involved in developing algorithms for monitoring and assessment of motor behaviour in the hospital and home setting, with an emphasis on sensorimotor integration within the perception-action cycle. Patient studies will be performed to explain human functioning, understand disorders, and test new technologies. You will work closely together with colleagues from the Donders Institute and the Sint Maartenskliniek, a rehabilitation hospital in Nijmegen, and a partner within the consortium. Your responsibilities may also include some management, mentoring (PhD, MSc and BSc), and teaching related tasks.

Specific Requirements
  • You have a PhD in a relevant field (e.g. sensorimotor neuroscience, human movement sciences, biomedical engineering, artificial intelligence, computational neuroscience).
  • You have a demonstrable interest and experience in probabilistic and/or other modelling approaches to sensorimotor control.
  • You have good social, communication and organisational skills.
  • You are a team player.
  • Experience with behavioural and patient studies would be useful, and experience supervising students at various levels would be advantageous.

Additional Information
  • It concerns an employment for 1.0 FTE.
  • The gross monthly salary amounts to a minimum of €4,332 and a maximum of €5,929 based on a 38-hour working week, depending on previous education and number of years of relevant work experience (salary scale 11 ).
  • You will receive 8% holiday allowance and 8.3% end-of-year bonus.
  • It concerns a temporary employment for two + one year(s)
  • You will be able to use our Dual Career and Family Care Services . Our Dual Career and Family Care Officer can assist you with family-related support, help your partner or spouse prepare for the local labour market, provide customized support in their search for employment and help your family settle in Nijmegen.
  • Working for us means getting extra days off. In case of full-time employment, you can choose between 30 or 41 days of annual leave instead of the legally allotted 20.

Work and science require good employment practices. This is reflected in Radboud University's primary and secondary employment conditions . You can make arrangements for the best possible work-life balance with flexible working hours, various leave arrangements and working from home. You are also able to compose part of your employment conditions yourself, for example, exchange income for extra leave days and receive a reimbursement for your sports subscription. And of course, we offer a good pension plan. You are given plenty of room and responsibility to develop your talents and realise your ambitions. Therefore, we provide various training and development schemes.
