Your tasks:

In the context of projects for innovative hearing research and the development of a novel (optical) cochlear implant, your responsibilities will include the development of new optical stimulators for optogenetic stimulation in physiological and psychophysical experiments, both as larger scale devices and as miniaturised implants, in close collaboration with biomedical scientists and in cooperation with the staff of the precision mechanics workshop.

Your profile:

Experience with optoelectronics and optics is required for the position. Further experience with measurement and control hardware (e.g. microcontrollers, A/D and D/A converters) and digital signal processing is desirable, as well as experience in biomedical engineering and microsystems technology.

We are looking for excellent and highly motivated applicants with a strong background in physics or engineering (MSc, PhD or equivalent). Good computational skills and the ability to work in an interdisciplinary (combining molecular, structural, physiological, and theoretical approaches) and international team of researchers are required.

We offer:

The Göttingen Campus is a leading Neuroscience Center hosting numerous prestigious and internationally renowned research institutions. This includes the University and its Medical Center, three life science Max Planck Institutes, the European Neuroscience Institute, and the German Primate Center. The Institute for Auditory Neuroscience & InnerEarLab is tightly integrated in the Campus with research groups hosted also at non-university Institutions and runs numerous stimulating collaborations on Campus such as within the collaborative sensory research center SFB889 ( and the Multiscale Bioimaging Cluster of Excellence (
