POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS AVAILABLE: Neuromodulation for Performance Optimization

 

info

Our laboratory located in Tempe, AZ at Arizona State University in the School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering is in the process of recruiting two postdoctoral colleagues to explore the potential of accelerating learning and enhancing human performance using several different neuromodulation approaches.

Candidates will be considered for work on federally funded research projects aimed at investigating the effects of targeted neuromodulation on visual, auditory, and somatosensory information processing and plasticity using a variety of neurophysiological and psychophysiological methods. The research and positions will be funded by the Department of Defense as part of larger programs that include multiple academic and industrial partners collaborating with the common goal of enhancing learning. Successful candidates will be expected to contribute to the larger teams efforts by collaborating with our colleagues and partners across a variety of areas of expertise including cognitive neuroscience, neurobiology, physiology, and bioengineering.

Qualifications

Mandatory Qualifications All candidates must posses a B.S. and Ph.D. in neuroscience, neurobiology, psychology, biomedical engineering, physiology, or a related field to be considered. All candidates must have experience working with human research subjects collecting and analyzing EEG data. All candidates must have excellent quantitative skills with an ability to manage and analyze large data sets. All candidates must have an excellent track record of managing projects through different stages of the research life cycle from experimental design through publication in top tier peer-reviewed journals. Candidates must possess excellent verbal and written communication skills as routine data presentations with our collaborators and sponsor are required. Three references will be required for all qualified candidates prior to final consideration.

Preferred Qualifications Priority will be give to candidates with neuromodulation experience and in particular those with experience in cranial nerve or peripheral nerve stimulation and/or transcranial magnetic stimulation. Similarly, a preference will be given to candidates having extensive experience recording and analyzing biometric signals. Candidates with broad hardware and software experience will be given preference.

Further Information

Interested candidates may email W.J. Tyler for further information. Interested candidates should include a letter outlining relevant and past experience along with a curriculum vitae to be considered.

Review of potential candidates will begin immediately. Positions will begin as early as late January, 2017.
