Job Details

Postdoctoral research positions are available in the Tandon Lab at The University of Texas in Houston (UTHealth; https://www.uth.edu/) as part of the newly formed Texas Institute for Restorative Neurotechnologies (TIRN; https://www.uth.edu/tirn/). The position is fully funded via a multi-year NIH (UH3) grant for the experimental trial of implantable neurostimulation devices in humans. 

Applicants must have an interest in the neurobiology of epilepsy and epilepsy modulation using novel devices and stimulation parameters. Ideal candidates will be MD, PhD or MD/PhD graduates with a strong background or interest in neural time series analysis and the neuroscience of epilepsy or related diseases of the central nervous system. They must be able to independently code in any or all of the following: MATLAB, R or Python. Experience with electronic devices and an interest in engineering principles is desirable but not required. 

The candidates must be self-starters, motivated, and enthusiastic scientists. It is anticipated that the individuals selected will take responsibility for carrying out research projects, assembling results of research into manuscripts for publication, and participate in laboratory maintenance. Additionally, the individuals will participate in the preparation of grants for submission to funding agencies and in providing guidance and assistance to other student members of the laboratory. 

The postdoctoral researchers will work under the guidance of Nitin Tandon, MD (Neurosurgeon, Chair ad interim, Department of Neurosurgery and Director of the Epilepsy Surgery Program at Memorial Hermann Hospital) in his lab that focuses on treating epilepsy and improving epilepsy patient outcomes. 

To apply for this position, send your CV with names/contact information of three references to Nitin.Tandon@uth.tmc.edu and Eliana.Klier@uth.tmc.edu.

Company

Welcome to the functional and structural neuro-imaging and intra-cranial electrophysiology lab in the neurological surgery department at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston. This lab focuses on the study of cognitive functions using imaging and invasive electrophysiology. We are particularly interested in higher cognitive functions, including language, memory and executive control. We study these processes in normal humans and in patients undergoing resection for epilepsy or brain tumors. Diffusion tractography, functional MRI and behavioral testing are carried out prior to and after resections. In many patients, we also study cortical processes using intracranial electro-physiologic techniques. These electrocortico-graphic and cortical stimulation data are also compared with the functional and structural imaging data to better delineate the network underlying these disseminated cognitive operations.
