The Center for Neuroscience Studies of Anesthesia at MGH directed by Dr. Emery N. Brown was created to advance the science of understanding anesthesia. The center focuses on supporting the research at the intersection of medicine, neuroscience, mathematical modeling and engineering.
A postdoctoral research associate is sought to conduct anesthesia neuroscience studies in each of the following areas: human EEG and Ecog, rodent neurophysiology and data analysis. Our research group uses a variety of experimental, modeling, and signal processing approaches to study the neural mechanisms involved in general anesthesia. The person must be able to work independently, as well as with a team. We are looking for a postdoctoral research associate with strong expertise in one or more of the following areas: data analysis and signal processing, computer science and/or human or rodent neurophysiology.
A Ph.D. in computational neuroscience, computer science, biomedical engineering, applied statistics or a related field preferred.
Performs highly specialized experiments
Designs and implements modifications of research protocols
Troubleshoots problems and instructs colleagues (graduate students, anesthesiologists, and medical students) in conducting experimental protocols
Synthesizes and interprets results
Composes research grant applications and manuscripts
Performs data analyses
Implements and designs novel signal processing algorithms
