Computational Modeling of Autonomic Neuromodulation

The Grill Lab at Duke University, Department of Biomedical Engineering seeks a highly-motivated individual to pursue neural engineering research in a supportive environment. Our goal is to advance bioelectronic medicines: electrical stimulation, block, and recording of peripheral autonomic nerves for disease treatment and restoration of function. We have an NIH-funded SPARC project to develop, validate, and apply computer-based models of electrical stimulation and block of autonomic nerves, with complementary electrophysiology experiments.

The successful applicant will become an expert in our ASCENT (Automated Simulations to Characterize Electrical Nerve Thresholds) Pipeline for biophysical simulations of neural responses to electrical signals. They will also engage in projects involving novel computational modeling developments and design questions, as well as analyses of electrophysiological data.

This is a full-time position with University Benefits and provides exceptional opportunities for interdisciplinary research and career development. The successful applicant would be available to start working by September 2020. Job candidates must…

• Hold a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Engineering, Physics or Computer Science

• Be a proficient programmer, including in Python, with good coding habits; experience in Matlab, NEURON, COMSOL, git would be an asset

• Be familiar with neural biophysics and the fundamental principles of neural engineering

• Have research experience

• Have excellent informal and formal written and oral communication skills

• Be capable of balancing independent research progress with collaboration and team work, as appropriate
