Are you curious about brain rhythms? Are you interested in the mechanisms of sensory perception? Join our lab in its effort to elucidate the neural circuitry mediating nociception and pain. A position is available starting April 2017 for a postdoctoral fellow in the Saab lab, Department of Neurosurgery and Department of Neuroscience, Brown University and Rhode Island Hospital, Providence, US.
The fellow is expected to execute funded research projects and make significant contributions toward novel discoveries at the intersection of neuroscience, engineering, and computational modeling.
Requirements include a PhD in neuroscience or related field, proven experience in small animal surgery, multi-unit electrophysiology in awake rodents (TDT, CED), advanced computational analysis of mesoscale neural data (MATLAB), behavioral sensory detection paradigms, optogenetics, and maintenance of rodent colonies. Additional desired skills include human EEG and clinical trial management.
Please email a CV and be prepared to follow up with contacts for references upon request.
