Postdoctoral Fellowship in Brain Stimulation and Neurophysiology at Duke University
Applications are invited for a full-time postdoctoral fellowship position in the Brain Stimulation and Neurophysiology Division of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Duke University Medical Center. We seek highly qualified individuals to join a multidisciplinary research team that uses transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to explore and enhance cognitive function. Projects involve the identification of brain circuits related to cognitive performance (e.g. working memory, emotional regulation, motor function, etc.) with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) or electroencephalography (EEG), and modulating these circuits with TMS.
We seek a motivated individual to assist and lead in all aspects of the research process including conducting research and clinical trials, analysis of behavioral, fMRI, EEG and TMS data, participation in the development of articles for publication, grant writing, and the mentoring and supervision of students and research assistants. These projects provide an opportunity to interact with a diverse team of researchers in the School of Medicine, the School of Engineering, and the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience.
Applicants must have: (a) a doctoral degree in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, or a related field by the start date; (b) a strong potential for a career in cognitive or clinically relevant research; and (c) substantial experience with cognitive neuroscience techniques and familiarity with TMS. Attention to detail, strong quantitative skills, and the ability to work in team-based environment are of top importance.
This position comes with full benefits through the Duke University School of Medicine, and applicants will gain on-the-job TMS training and certification. Salary is based on NIH postdoc pay scales (https://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/research/funding/general/nrsa-fund-guide). The initial appointment is for one year, with the opportunity of renewal for additional years. Review of candidates will start immediately, and will continue until the position is filled. The position will be available as soon as the search process is completed, with a preferred starting date no later than February 1, 2016. Must be located in Durham NC, or the surrounding area.
To apply for the position please send an email to Dr. Greg Appelbaum (ude.ekud|gerg#ude.ekud|gerg), with a current CV, a letter of interest with the expected date of availability, and the names and contact information for at least three references. Informal inquiry is welcome via email and more information can be found at http://psychiatry.duke.edu/divisions/brain-stimulation-and-neurophysiology, www.p3lab.org, and https://sites.google.com/site/duken3lab/,
