We are seeking a basic/translational post-doctoral scholar with expertise in the neurophysiology of epilepsy and quantitative signal processing to join the Knowles Lab in the Department of Neurology, Stanford University School of Medicine. Pediatric epilepsies are debilitating and incompletely understood; for most conditions, disease modifying treatments or cures are not available. We discovered that maladaptive myelin plasticity promotes absence seizure progression (Knowles et al, Nature Neuroscience, 2022). The post-doctoral scholar will work in a rich training environment on the Stanford campus, on basic and translational projects aimed at understanding how neuron-glial interactions contribute to the pathogenesis of pediatric epilepsies, at the level of local circuits and brain networks. The candidate will lead independent studies, work collaboratively with other lab members and participate in interdepartmental collaborations. Our lab is uniquely positioned to study pediatric epilepsy in in vitro models, animal models and humans.  We use a range of approaches including quantitative EEG, behavioral testing, optogenetics, quantitative histology, and cellular and molecular techniques. We strive to provide an inclusive and welcoming lab culture that fosters learning and team science - making the full resources of our lab, the Stanford Neurology department, the Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute and Stanford University available to trainees.
