Position Description:    

Post-Doctoral Research Associate - Computational Modeling of TMS

We seek a highly-motivated individual to conduct research on multi-scale computational modeling of the cortical response to transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). We have an NIH-funded R01 project to investigate the mechanisms of TMS with biophysics-grounded computational modeling at the level of single neurons and cortical circuits, in combination with experimental intracerebral recordings.

This project is part of a long term collaboration between Dr. Warren Grill, Dr. Angel Peterchev, and Dr. Marc Sommer at Duke University. The parallel experimental component of the study provides unique opportunities to validate and calibrate computational models. The strong interdisciplinary and collaborative environment at Duke is ideal for our translational research efforts.

An earned PhD and previous experience in computational neural modeling is required as are excellent communication skills. Previous experience with modeling of neurostimulation is advantageous but not essential.

This is a full-time position with University Benefits and provides exceptional opportunities for interdisciplinary research and career development. Duke University is an equal opportunity / affirmative action employer.

Duke University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer committed to providing employment opportunity without regard to an individual's age, color, disability, gender, gender expression, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or veteran status.

Duke aspires to create a community built on collaboration, innovation, creativity, and belonging. Our collective success depends on the robust exchange of ideas-an exchange that is best when the rich diversity of our perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences flourishes. To achieve this exchange, it is essential that all members of the community feel secure and welcome, that the contributions of all individuals are respected, and that all voices are heard. All members of our community have a responsibility to uphold these values.
