Postdoctoral Research Associate in Transdermal Electrical Neuromodulation for Performance Optimization
School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering, Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, Arizona State University, Tempe AZ
Two full-time DARPA-funded postdoctoral positions are available at Arizona State University (ASU) to study the effects of Targeted Neuroplasticity Training (TNT) on visual, auditory, somatosensory, sensorimotor, and cognitive processing and performance. The positions will investigate the effects of TEN on neuroplasticity within somatosensory and visuomotor areas using multi-electrode single unit recordings in behaving non-human primates. One position will also evaluate the effects of TEN on the visuomotor performance of human subjects. Faculty in the neural engineering group currently work on the monitoring and development of brain machine interfaces, neuroprosthetics, wearable devices for measuring sensorimotor function, prediction of epileptic seizures, and device-assisted rehabilitative therapies for a variety of neurological disorders including stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, and Parkinson’s disease. Faculty in this group also collaborate with world-class clinicians, translational and basic scientists, and engineers in the Phoenix metro area.
Candidates must have: (a) Ph.D. in neuroscience, biomedical engineering or related field (b) a research record (c) teaching and/or mentorship experience, and (d) demonstrated interest in in discipline-based research. Successful candidates will interact with the PIs (Stephen Helms Tillery, William Tyler and Christopher Buneo) as well as other faculty and labs in the neural engineering and neurorehabilitation group in ASU’s School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering (SBHSE).
Preference will be given to candidates with the following characteristics: experience in human neurostimulation/neuromodulation, EEG and/or psychophysical/psychophysiological research, non-human primate behavioral neurophysiology, and/or the statistical analysis of neuronal data sets.
Candidates should electronically submit a current CV in PDF format and contact information for three references to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org . The position is a full-time, benefits eligible, fiscal appointment with a flexible start date of sometime between July 30, 2018 and September 1, 2018 with the possibility of renewal annually, dependent on available funding, performance and the needs of the University. The salary will be $47,476. The initial close date for receipt of applications is July 27th, 2018; applications will be reviewed weekly thereafter until the search is closed. A background check is required for employment. Arizona State University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer committed to excellence through diversity. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
