The University of Virginia Department of Neurological Surgery is seeking a PhD neuroscientist with experience in neurophysiology and neuromodulation to build translational research in pain and brain mapping. This new position will conduct basic and translational research in our Focused Ultrasound Center, our neuromodulation lab, and other functional neurosciences areas as we target functional disorders and especially the manner in which pain develops and is processed by the brain. The candidate should be familiar with techniques to study pain transmission in laboratory models and human subjects.
The position is expected to be tenure-ineligible Assistant Professor of Research with progression to Associate Professor and Professor expected based on achievement. Qualifications include a PhD in neurosciences or related field, and experience with studying pain signaling, human brain recording, and neuromodulation research. It is mandatory that the candidate have experience with human electrophysiology recordings (including single cell analysis, local field potentials, and electrocorticography) and computational techniques to analyze neural signals and oscillations. Intraoperative experience with thalamic physiology is preferred. A proven history of successful or promising submissions to NIH and other sponsors, and publication in peer-reviewed neurological journals, is required.
