Positions – Postdoc

Position: Post-Doc, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Department of Neurological Surgery

Position Description: We are seeking a post-doctoral researcher to join the Brain Imaging and Electrophysiology Network (BIEN) laboratory in the Department of Neurological Surgery at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. The position would be available in early to mid-2023. Dario Englot, MD, PhD is a neurosurgeon and neuroscientist and the principal investigator of the BIEN lab. Our group uses functional and structural MRI techniques intracranial EEG to better understand brain network pathophysiology in epilepsy and other neurological disorders. Brain networks involved in normal cognitive processes will also be examined in the lab. Please see our lab website at www.englotlab.com.

This post-doc position will focus on one of a few potential projects using advanced network analyses with functional MRI, structural MRI, or intracranial EEG data, or combining techniques for a multimodal approach. A major goal of the lab is to understand how seizures in epilepsy patients lead to dysfunction in brain networks related to cognition, behavior, and consciousness. We are also interested in how network analysis can improve upon standard clinical treatment, and in how networks may change after surgical procedures.

Requirements: This position requires a Ph.D. in engineering, neuroscience, or a related field, with proficiency in MATLAB and/or computer programming. Prior experience in imaging or electrophysiology is preferred but not required. Both pending Ph.D. graduates and individuals who have completed previous post-doc training will be considered. An excellent academic record is critical, including a history of high-quality publications, presentations at national meetings, and experience in submitting grant applications. Applicants must be reliable, honest, hard-working, independent, and possess excellent communication skills. A minimum time commitment of 1-2 years is expected, with the potential opportunity for renewal. Salary will be commensurate with University guidelines, and benefits will be provided. Given funding considerations, the applicant should be a United States citizen or permanent resident.
