The Rowland laboratory focuses on understanding the circuit dynamics that play a pathophysiological role in movement and psychiatric disorders and is seeking a postdoctoral fellow. The two most common disorders we study are Parkinson’s disease and Major Depression. Our methodological approaches are based on intraoperative, awake electrophysiological recordings during implantation of deep brain stimulation electrodes in humans. Our scope includes additional disorders (e.g., essential tremor, obsessive-compulsive disorder, etc) and experimental approaches (e.g., unit activity, LFP, ECoG, MEG, etc). Successful candidates will join a vibrant research environment in neuroscience at MUSC, including the Neuroscience Institute, the Murray Center for Research on Parkinson’s Disease & Related Disorders, the Institute of Psychiatry, the Center for Rehabilitation Research in Neurological Conditions, the Brain Stimulation Core, and Zucker Institute of Applied Neurosciences.
Candidates should have 2-3 years of experience working in a basic, clinical or translational research laboratory setting. Candidates must have prior peer-reviewed publications as well as strong computer programming and data analysis skills. Engineering and/or quantitative background strongly considered.
Additional Salary Information: Compensation is dependent on level of experience and includes full employee benefits.
